Remember to check youtube and search gingerman for on track videos to see the track itself in action.

Anyone want to post up some youtube links for people to see?

It is a nice track for beginners to learn on.

Are there going to be instructors available to ride along with completely new drivers on the track? Usually the experts ride along to give some instruction.

Thanks for the enthusiasm, everyone. I know it's a bit early, but if you are interested in attending, shoot a PM to Ivan or me with a short description of your track experience so we can start building groups. We want a great mix of drivers so the experienced ones can have some good track time as well as mentor newer drivers.

Can someone ask Junkman if he can have Adam'd Polishes sponsor him to come out and show some of the products and buy us lunch too? That might be a nice draw to bring out the DC guys... Not sure if Junkman can drive though?!

We'll definitely have some seasoned veterans to do some teaching. As for vids of the track:

There's plenty more out there.

Get out there and beat on your buddies to come on out it will be the experience of a life time for some, and the start of some thing great for others. Jay Attended the last for his first time at a track and ended up driving the Nirenberg ring...

I wish you guys the best of luck, but a Michigan is simply an unmakeable road trip for me next year. If something comes up later at Driver's Edge, TWS, Hallet or something of similar distance post up as I would probably be able to make that.
