We will talk Mr K04. I want to get the FD to at least 2 maybe 3 HPDE. Got any track experience or are you a n00b?

I'm shooting for a 1 day HPDE @ Blackhawk to break her in (AAA towing distance )

Then I really want to do Grattan again with 3 Balls Racing

The last will be open to event/price/FD still in one piece.

new(ish) to the area. how much are the individual events hosted by BMWCCA (with membership)? I'm looking for a local SCCA/autoX chapter/group to run with this year since moving up from Indianapolis.

Also (possibly unrelated to thread), I'm part owner-driver of a 24-hours of Lemons team. We will likely have a seat open for a 6th driver this year for anyone who's interested. You can PM me for details
