I'm surely available for a much reduced fee than they were paying NR!

Agreed! Also I wonder if that "Lease Scheme" would cover AMG/Black series models

In a hypothetical situation where I was slotted to be an F1 driver I would be the guy asking for a clutch pedal, shifter, and less grip so the car could be drifted lol.

That sucks! The Friday of the NASA event at Palmer has been my favorite local track day for two years running. I was figuring it would be the day that I'd *definitely* leave junior home and sneak out for a day...

CHIN has two Palmer dates. I suspect Northeast Track Days will have some dates there as well.

Maybe they'll plan an event later on. I think with offering two schools this season, they probably just find it easier to do it at NJMP and it ended up that they couldn't find a date that works for Palmer.

Like Jeff said, look at Chin as an option. You will like it even if you did one day. BTW - how is Junior doing? Watkins Glen is still on your radar I hope

Has anyone done a winter/snow driving school?

In particular, looking at the Team ONeil Rally school in NH. Looks like a hell of a time.

Dave - that's a great school. However I'd recommend reading the school descriptions and selecting the 2 or 3 day school. The 1 day IMO will only get your feet wet but won't really allow you to process what you've learned overnight and apply it the next day.

Same goes for Skip Barber and other such programs
