Very, very cool.
If you ever have a chance to do a Daytona class Do It!!! The 3.56 mile road course is incredible fun!
FYI - The newest version of the Cosworth Toolbox is 3.0 if you don't have it.
I just might have to bite the bullet and do a three day Vette class at SM.

Here's a couple Caddy pics from different classes.

I tried updating my Cosworth Toolbox a few months ago and it wouldnít even run anymore. Had to delete it and redownload the old version. Maybe Iíll try updating again and see if it works.

I kinda want to go back and do that 3 day ďlevel 1Ē course too. But the $3800 could buy a couple sets of tires for my car and I could just C group it (a ZR1 in C group? Lol) to get more track miles under my belt at like Thunderhill or Sonoma. Probably never Laguna since Iíll never get under noise limit as it sits now and Iíll never put those ridiculous looking pipes on my car.

I've notice that sometimes it will stop playing the videos and the play/continue symbol appears, then I select it and the vid continues.

On Spring Mountain's web site:
ZR1 Owners School Officially Ends Aug. 31st, 2020.

Maybe they're going to get the C8-ZR1's when they are available.

I remember when I was picking which block of two days in August, there weren't a helluva lot of them. So thereís maybe two classes left and thatís the end of it, then all those cars go back to GM and more than likely get crushed. The other C7 programs I think go to the end of the year, and then they will fully transition to the C8 platform.

OK, edited one of the PDR recordings and found one of my cleaner laps.

Looks like a frustrating track to be on in a car like that.

A lot of different layouts they can have at that track. I bet this one is the way it is to keep speeds in check. Stability control is kept on, and thereís generous runoff, so little chance of damaging these cars. That said, two guys did come off, and we all had to pit in while they made sure the track was clean and the car was ok. Gotta realize that somemost of these new Corvette buyers have little real track experience or none at all (myself included). There was a dude in my class of seven who claimed he hadnít driven his own car over 70 yet. If you come in for the level 2 class, the back straight extends a bit into a chicane. Whatís currently laid down though...they can make the thing like 6 miles long if they really want to. And whatís being proposed? Itíll be the Nurburgring of the Western Hemisphere if they get around to laying it down.
