Default April 11 & 12 - MAM

Hi guys, just an FYI: There's a track day/weekend at MAM (the road course, not the drag strip) with FindTheLine April 11th and 12th.

Registration is up at their website: http://www.findtheline.com/

Are these simply open track days, or do they provide instruction to help make you a better driver? I have wanted to go to one of these events for a couple of years now, but need to get my car in better running shape for on the track first.

It's an open lapping event but you can request an instructor. Depending on the group of drivers, they usually run 3 groups, beginner, intermediate and advanced. If there aren't many beginners, they combine groups. It's a great group of people that put this on and they welcome new drivers. Also, other drivers are more than happy to ride along or have you ride with them and give pointers etc.

If you are interested, email Damian (the main guy that puts this on) and let him know you are interested and would like an instructor. His email address is on findtheline's website.

Not sure if you knew it or not, but if you want a dedicated instructor check out the Fast Fridays at MAM. I believe it's the first Friday of each month the track holds a school. They do like an hour or so classroom session, then it's on the track with an instructor in your car till they feel you are comfortable, safe and in control. Then they turn you loose and it's on your own for the rest of the day. After you complete that you can go to any Fast Friday and run the open sessions.

Yep about a week and a half. I just hope the weather turns a little warmer.
