Track Days...We NEED ONE!!

Post by bluehtchbckdrv on Fri May 23, 2008 9:35 am

I am hell bent on trying to get out to a track at LEAST ONCE this year with BMO.
Doest anyone know where the closest ones are too school? And how late in the season they are open? I know there have to be at least a few of you are willing to to come out....

If not a track day per say, I'm more then down for an AutoX. I'd attend a drag, but not participate.....Im not found of dropin the clutch on my car....plus....she isnt exactly a straight line speed demon....but I'd still go

That would be NED or New England Dragway in Epping NH.

They are open until October 31. Assuming there is good weather.

Mapquest gives it an estimated time of 1 hour and 15 minutes... but I'm sure we can make it there in considerably less time.

you should consider the driving school sponsored by bmw i believe, i will try to get more info but if anyone else has heard of this, its basically a beginers racing school but the appealing thing is the cost i believe its only 90 bucks but you have to register months in advance...againi will try to dig up more info...i got wait listed last year..

For drag racing, NED (eping nh)
^1/4 mile drag strip

For road racing, Louden aka New Hampshire Motor Speedway (louden NH)
^1.6 mile, 12 turn road course

And you can pretty much autocross anywhere, I know of cart ct because i live close to where they race

Problem with the BMW one is that it fills up very very quickly. The price is more then reasonable though....I found an Audi winter driving school that I wanted to go to, but at $250-$300 for the weekend I didnt think anyone would come with No

I also looked at having a "BMO Driving School Day", but at $2000-$3000 there was 0% possibility of getting funding, and no one was willing to pay the money....

CartCT races 15 minutes from my house, which is about an hour and half from school lol. I'm sure there are organizations in mass, but i'm not sure if they let out of state folks like us in on the fun

I live about ten minutes from New Hampshire Motor Speedway in Loudon, NH and they do both road racing and autoX. For the road races they use most of the oval track and then the track turns to the right outside the oval and snakes around and then back into the oval. They do autoX in a huge parking lot next to the track.
