Well, we had a spectacular day at NYST!
... 34 cars of all types. Great guys and gals. I got two instructor sessions myself and in turn I tutored two new drivers. Our GTV6 has new poly bushings, I dialed in the tire pressure, focussed on an improved line, plus braking late and hard. Dropped my lap time in a huge way! I couldn't be happier.
The GTV6 got a lot of compliments. Everyone loved the sound of it ripping through the gears at redline, and they loved the fact that it hadn't been tricked out, I drive it in nearly stock condition, people said they were amazed at how hard I drove such a flawless classic car, and how fast it went...
The track crew send the cars out at intervals so we don't see much of other cars, but I outbraked a Factory Five AC Cobra into turn 1, I think he got self conscious and pushed too hard and spun out in front of me.
I'll post again the next time the NECC Motorsports guys host an event.. They are considering Pocono next summer, but I'm told that track has many different configurations and the suitability to an GTV6 will depend on which configuration they choose.
Yeah. My friend goes to days at Palmer and also Watkins. If I recall they were a bit more pricey so this place is interesting. The track looks great. Thanks for the info. My 1750 handles amazingly and the engine is close. I'm just tweaking the jetting to get the best from the motor.
Yes, the club officers talked about about costs. I have no idea what the NYST costs for a day, but they came out ahead with 34 cars x $250 = $8,500 plus the Motorcycle Club
. They are priced out of Lime Rock and Monticello. They said they'd look into Palmer but not fond of the rocks and concrete so near the cars.
Watkins I've spectated. Love to try it some time. Looks like I'd want a GT car for the straights and long curves, not the GTV6.
