We found the same last summer. We used to put about 15,000 each summer but last year it would not have been much over 5,000.

Well maybe work on increasing the smiles-per-mile factor in 2019, as the freshly repaved Waterford Hills offers 8 OTD's next Season;

Outstanding Geoff, I can't wait to get on the new super smooth surface and re-learn all the braking and turn-in points 8^J

Id love to take my s2000 out on the track. What would a generic cost be for a track day? Or is there a good class type of day with instruction? Helmet and other costs?

@sca037 and myself are both instructors for OTD's at Waterford Hills. First day out it's highly recommended you get an instructor anyway (we work for free ).

It's $200 for the whole day, usually 4 sessions of 20 minutes a piece.

You need a SNELL 2005 and up helmet. Just make sure you have enough brakes, change your brake fluid (if you haven't done it recently), bring some oil, torque your wheels, and come rage! I can also take you on some laps in my car during instructor periods. Give me a shout if you're going to come up and one of us will make sure to nab you.
