We wanted to bring our $2002 Challenge TII to the OTC but the wife didn't think that was a good idea after being gone for 10 days in Feb.


Anyway that car is gone now, I have to think of something else to bring.

How much track experience did you have before the event? I actually don't have any track experience, I do have a lot of auto-x, but that is all relatively low speed.

Track experience... Aside from OTC days, I've done probably 15-20 track days + numerous autocrosses. My co-driver has way more track time than me having graduated from multiple race schools, goes to the track once or twice a month, and instructs with several groups. :-)
I would recommend at least attending a few high performance driving events before taking on something like OTC, besides, proof of experience is mandatory. All of the drivers were experianced and most were instructors or veteran racers with the groups they usually run with. An amazing group of people to run with, for sure.
