          hey, I know I am the best driver, other than the other 9 Trackhq'ers.

          no, I've also never been to Chuckawalla
          I just hope the car is as close to Miata as possible like that will happen.

              I agree with this ^^^^^. Cheap track day in which you get to drive someone else's car and talk trash with comrades is a good day in my book.

                      and the fact that the magazine "pros" get to know what the cars are before the event...

                      So you get to spend how many hours in the car to get to and from the track? And then you get to pay for the track so the "magazine" can write the story?

                        The Magazine Pros are also regulars at Chuckwalla, including Micky, who built and runs the track and has far more laps at Chuckwalla than anyone else on the planet. And my guess is one of the cars is his personal C6 Z06.

                          It does appear to be heavily stacked in the Magazine Pro's favor. Might be just make the Challenge that much more interesting should one or more of us schmoes prevail.

                          Aside from their cost I never understood why people race them.

                            If so, look out for Ryan, he has some good seat time in a not so properly setup 650hp C6Z

                            • Sorry I couldn't attend the event. With the race at Charlotte this weekend, going to Detroit next weekend, and coming back to SoCal for Halloween, SEMA, Time Attack, and Testing in the next few weeks, I wasn't able to make it work.

                              +1.

                              With very information provided on their end, their familiarity of the track and cars, and charging the THQ people $75/person to jump right in the deep end for eliminations after 2 laps, seems a bit sketchy to me. Best of luck to everyone going though. I really wish I could have made it to represent and take care of some business.

                              Kick some @$& for me!

                                +2 On the fence right now and considering sitting it out. 1 out lap to try to learn the car and 2 hot laps isn't giving me warm fuzzies.
                                Please, no guesses or claims as to who I am in public.
