Thanks for the pictures. It looks like a great track. There is nothing like going to a track whether its to drive or view cars on the track.
I grew up in the Northeast and we always went to road races at places like Pocono, Watkins Glen, Lime Rock, Etc. I bought my first van in 1977 and I used it for camping and going to Van Ins and such for many many years. In the late 70's thru the early 80's there was a huge van only event at Watkins Glen called Van America. If you wanted to and your van could pass a tech inspection you could drive on the track. Some of us took the chance and got to drive our vans quite hard around the track for a few laps and it was very fun albeit a bit scary in a van. That was my first track time. Since then as a member of SCCA as well as the Porsche and Audi clubs we did a bunch of track stuff as well as Auto Crossing and Ice Racing (http://www.cnyira.com/
). I moved to GA in 2002 to work at Porsche Cars North America and did the Porsche Driving Experience (both the on and off road courses) at least three times at Barber Motorsports Park. I also did Audi and Porsche Club driving events at Road Atlanta and Atlanta Motor Speedway.
Since Moving to CA I have not driven at any track events (sold a bunch of cars to move out here and haven't replaced them yet) but we still like to go to the races whenever possible (off to the 12 Hours of Sebring next week). We love to camp at Laguna Seca it is such a great camp grounds and it happens to be at a great race track. We must have camped there 8 or 9 times last year for races and Porsche and Audi club events and just to camp.
At any rate it is nice to know there are other road racing fans on the forum. Thanks again for the pictures and bringing up fond memories of track time.
Oh and also don't forget that anytime you get to take a driving instruction/track class you take that with you for life. Its the best money you can spend as every vehicle you have will perform better and safer because of what you learned on the track.
