grabbing new clutch, driveshaft and tires soon too. Still need to pick a better data logger - if you guys have suggestions. Racecapture is my front runner currently
 
Might be able to make it to black hawk but that will probably be the only one I can make it to all year. My son might be starting karting so that’s basically we’re my summer will be hopefully I will be able to meet some of you guys

New job has me only able to hit the track on weekends this year- but I'm making it work. Just booked an event at Blackhawk Farms for May 19th with "GPS Track Time". Will be first time at that track and have heard great things from you guys about it.

@MrBD1348 sounds like you are pretty local to Chicago- when are you hitting Autobahn? So far I am doing Sat/Sun June 1st and 2nd with Northwoods Shelby Club, and Saturday August 3rd with PSI Motorsports. Would be great to link up.

I'm in the city but originally from Park Ridge (my mustang still lives in Park Ridge), so not too far from you. Definitely look into the NWSC event, have heard great things from the guys on the forum here. Will be my first time in that group, I'm sure there might be more TMO guys going.

Will be my first with that group too. Should be a good one, will probably sign up this week. Thinking about April 20th at RA as well

So I went on a bit of a rampage yesterday signing up for events. The SCCA ones don’t charge until the day of the event so figured I might as well.

4/20 - Road America - Northwoods Shelby
5/24 - Autobahn (South) - SCCA
6/7 - Autobahn (Full) - SCCA
6/29 - Autobahn (South) - SCCA
7/27 - Autobahn (North) - SCCA
8/13 - Gingerman - Moh
8/16 - Autobahn (South) - SCCA
9/6 - Autobahn (South) - SCCA

Might add some more NWSC events as time goes on but this is where I’m at so far. Hopefully will see some of you guys out there 🫡

Gingerman next weekend with @Tonymustang302 run by GPS Track Time. Shaping up to be a rainy weekend- we'll see. Will be a good learning experience.

Sunday May 19th I'll be hitting Blackhawk Farms for the first time. Both @Vettel-ish and @Tonymustang302 are registered as well. @dragoon and @MrBD1348 think you can make it out that day? Would be a fun TMO gathering. Think Tony and I are bringing the dogs and his daughter / my wife and a little Weber for some grilling.

I was still 50/50 on if I like the look of the quarter window louvres on my car… I guess RA made the decision for me today 😂 came off about 700 ft before Canada corner at somewhere around 150 or so
