The only thing open for this year is the HP Driving. I would be MORE THAN HAPPY to organize one of the above dates.

Updated information

I just got a message from Chris @ Mid-Ohio.

There is a Corvette club in need of 10 cars; they do not have to be camaros.

The cost is down to $300 now as well.

I need to have an answer and count back to Chris by Monday July 12th.

Please let me know if you can do this and if you can get a couple more cars as well. I have contacted Pete (Pedders) and he said he is in again.

No, I know it sounded wierd, but no I meant what I said. I was trying to get a camaro thing going and they knew that, so they wanted to make sure everyone knew it didn't need to be our camaros...

I guess I should have said it didn't need to be a corvette, that would have been simple, but I guess my thoughts weren't as transparent as I thought:D

The format of the program on September 13th is essentially an abbreviated version of our High Performance Program. Registration/check-in would take place between 8:00-8:30am. We would have a brief classroom session at 8:45am – 9:30am and discuss the physics and dynamics of precision driving. (We have to assume everyone has had minimal training) At 9:30am we would divide the group into three and head to the Vehicle Dynamic Center and practice drills/maneuvers. We would rotate stations every 50 minutes. At the end of the drills, we would take a brief break, participate in a track talk session for safety reasons, and begin our on-track Lead/follow lapping session. The on-track session would be approximately 55 minutes.



The price of the program is $300 per person. We would need a minimum of 10 people from your group/Matt McHenry’s group. All car types are welcome. Convertibles will need to be equipped with a roll bar above the driver’s helmet. Our objective is to teach participants in an introductory high performance driving program with their personal vehicle and let them experience the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course.

I have a complete set of OEM rims, rubber, & TPMS that someone can BORROW for the day if you happen to get a flat tire or something on the way to Mid-Ohio. They are brand new. They were take offs from someones 21" rim purchase.

do i need to bring my own helmet? what else do i need?
nope, if you have your own helmet and prefer to wear it, then bring it. Chris said they should have plenty of helmets to borrow.

Need to have on pants and no open toe shoes.
