You don't need top-of-line helmet, really. I paid $120+shipping for open face SNELL2005 and mine works...
- you buy it, try the track thing, and decide it's not for you, then you can sell it on ebay for about $100+



what's the minimum number of cars? please please,,, don't cancel this event!!!
First 50 cars to register are in. Sign up in this thread and then shoot Ivan or me a PM with a short description of your experience so we can line up groups. I'll update everyone on how many cars we've got in a couple of weeks once we get more. Tell a friend, but get them to sign up here at DC too!

I'm sure as more folks thaw out, they'll be ready to jump on!

First timers don't have a clue just how much fun it is. If they can muster enough to give it a try, they'll kick themselves for not doing it sooner.

We're not making this an exclusive event, but I'd encourage you to at least get them to sign up so they know what DC is all about. I mean, it's free for a standard membership, of course. Then they'll have the advantage of getting to see all the photos and videos from the event, too.

Heard anything back about your buddies? I wouldn't mind chasing the Eleanor around the track a bit... and I've owned 3 Camaros over the years, so I like the F-bodies too.

Yeah so far i have 1 that sais he will probably go. He is pretty sure, he just had to check his schedule first. He has a 475 rwhp 99 trans am. It has different suspension and stuff so it should be pretty sweet. havent talked to the one with the GT500 but i should know by next weekend

Would it be ok if I invite some imports too? (i know Corvette society is more generous to other American cars but some don't like foreign brand. Don't mean to say it's good or bad. Just want to make sure it's ok with everyone) he runs sTi with some mod. If it'll be awkward, I understand. Just let me know. Thanks!

As long as he likes the look of the Z06 rear bumper, he's ok.

Just kidding. The more the merrier. Actually, it would be fun to have an AWD car on track to show some of the new guys how differently they handle at the limit.
Just make sure I get names so I know to add to my list.
