Over the past years I have run at Mid Ohio and once at Road Atlanta in the race prepped 240Z, Sportline or wife's 3 Series but am building up one of the 500Es for this spring and will need a good place to work it out. Sounds like you have the ticket. Hopefully you will see me at each event. From Kentucky, I am only 6 hours from Chicago [and Gino's Pizza]


Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.

I have done a few trackdays in my 190E including Nurburgring. Unfortunately it competed in its last one last year owing to a new track car project.

Here are a couple of vids if you're interested.

I do about 15 or more Track Days a year, on top of well over 70+ Autocrosses a year. In total I usually run about 100 events a year.

I just bought a 99 C43 AMG, I'm planning on turning that into my new track toy and see what fun I can have with that.

Wow! Beautiful Porsche, Bill! 415 hp, 8400 RPM redline, 0 - 62 mph in 4.2 seconds, and yes..... a top speed of 193 MPH! Be careful with that rocketship.
