8 - 5 is more than enough time to wear yourself out out there.   I'll say something to the wife.   You thinking about bringing out the pony ?

If I remember right, it took me like 20 mins to learn the track because it's so big.

nah - you'll be fine.   when I was there, the faculty put cones out to show you where to start your turn in, apex, exit, and made you follow a leader through the course a few laps and 50% effort where he systematically waved to pass following cars after several laps.   Just watch those hint cones, but really pay attention to your surroundings.   I probably don't need to say this, but be easy the first 15/20 mins and give yourself a fighting chance.   If you go balls deep and go off early and get embarrassed, worse - hurt your car, it will ruin your day and more over, your confidence. 

 

Tamsters just reminded me we spent 15K on our bathrooms and 500 bucks for a lap day right now is a tall order.  I'm not done yet though with my request, lol.    I might tag along if someone else decides to go... maybe.  

 

Snat's right though, 8 hours will kill your tires.   Bring a whole extra set of mounted tires if you don't trailer or at the min, a set of fronts as you can mount them anywhere and move wheels around.  You don't know your alignment yet so there's understeer issues - maybe.  767 whp is probably near 700 tq to the sneaker.  Rears will take a beating - even if they're square to the surface.   I'll have to use tires I intended to cutup for rallycross, so I wont have a lot of width or soft compound, but I'll have fresh 235/40 17 @ 320 wear sneakers and will be on a trailer.   

My own experience in this is that I went to Arroyo Seco in my 350z, cooked my rears early and was done as I didn't bring an extra set of tires.  I got to watch Tammy race from the sidelines.

My wife just reminded me that its on mothers day weekend. Looking less likely but we shall see

Honestly only want to do a few laps to get better acquainted with the car and stretch her legs...legally.

Dude.  The main straight / runway is a perfect place for that.  If the Accord had been in a little better shape, I might have hit 100.  I got close-ish to 100 the one time I went with Ric.

Brandon- I'll find out from my friend at work whether or not he's renewing his Inde membership.  I was able to get out there a handful of times in my Camaro and a couple times in the scion and there were ~2-3 other cars, at most, while we were there.  My cost was the same as the trackday.  If a 3rd person tags along, the cost goes up, but not significantly. (1st guest is "included" with the membership, additional guests are $300)
