not to be off topic but in a few weeks in TX i might be going to the motor speedway or something to go around the track. it only cost like $25 for 3 laps. I bet DiRn would know

BeaveRun <---click here for website. It's in the Pittsburgh area though, about 7 1/2 hours from Long island (only reference point to which I have driven to in NYC from here) I will be going in September for open lapping day.

Here is Summit Point info (WV) should be closer than pgh

Summit Point

What about Watkins Glen? Can you go out there for a day at the track?
Here is the events calendar for Watkins Glen looks like there are many instructional events (skip barbar school) and SCAA events there. That is probably closer to you than here also...

There are also autocross events held at the meadowlands. Specifically in the parking lots for Giants stadium. I have autocrossed there a few times with the porsche autocross club of northern new jersey (NNJR PCA). I know that there are a few other autocross groups running in NJ you should check out http://www.autox4u.com/ , its a great source of information. Maybe I will see you out there sometime.

Dude I was drivin to Roosavelt Field one day, and I saw an autocross event happening right by the horse track (Im blanking on the name), its like near Eisenhower Park... ahhh well whatever, the point is I didnt figure out what the deal was with it cause I was in my friend's car.

It would have taken too long for me to go back home, get the Z, etc. Plus it was too hot out to do that to a car lol

Autocross is usually a parking lot with cones. I've gone to meadowlands, Nassau Coliseum, and Orchard Beach in the Bronx. Those are the closest ones around here.

is there a track ? or just cones + parking lot ?

Cones in the parking lot of BELMONT Racetrack (I knew the name would come back to me).

Never saw it there again. Must have been a club thing.

Yeah, they go on a lot more than you'd expect. Unfortunately, I haven't been back to one since before I talked to you about it months ago. :cry: Hopefully I'll get more time next year
