    Still my favorite, wish TTD would grab a date there. There are other orgs that run track days there. Bit of a hike from Boston.

    I've done this very thing for the past few years, on another forum. Have schedules, track info including on-board video, etc.

    No promises about it being complete but it's not far off of what you're looking for.

    I'll be at NJMP a lot more this year, starting with Superbike school on May 13th and 14th. Absolute Cycle was just OK there, lots of sessions available but had so many crashes that we lost 3x of them and an hour and a half delay midday due to car cleanup (they run them in between bike sessions). I want to give it a shake with EvolveGT this year.

    I plan on making a NYST and Palmer day this year as well, eyeing Memorial Day weekend.

    Hey gixxer, can you share what you find with me please? I have briefly looked into those also but haven't done a car day in over two years (last one was NYST in 2015).

    I tried the car thing... and while it was fun, I could tell it wasn't going to be a big part of my life.

    I could see doing it once a year or every other year.

    That's all I'm interested in. I figure it would be a shame to own a Track-Pack Camaro and not take it to the race track a couple times.

    Mighty white of you.


    I'll check to see if the driver's seat moves that far forward.

    Am I wrong for thinking (without doing the math) that I'd rather NJMP $195 than Thompson $365?

    IDEK if TSMP is better value than Palmer, considering Palmer's Dragon-of-New-England status.

    Not saying one way or the other. Just throwing it out there.

    NJMP is a shit drive and TSMP is less than half an hour away from me.

    Also TSMP has Track Nite in America...might hit one of these up after work at one point.

    Track Night Event Schedule - Track Night in America

    60min 3X20 for $150.

    This org operates at Palmer and NJMP too.
