The Gulf Coast Fiat/Lancia group is having their annual Track Day at Harris Hill road track in San Marcos on 3/31 this year. Cost would be just $100 per car for the 4 hours at the track which we have to ourselves. Includes track instruction, loaner helmets if needed. This will be our 5th visit there and we always leave with smiles on our faces. No special equipment needed as cars/drivers are paced according to speed. Itís just you against the track, not racing.

Sadly they've chosen the absolute worst day of the year for me to get off work, not gonna happen no way no how. I would probably lose my job if I skipped that day unless I was in the hospital on my death bed!...

Short version, wish I could go but I can't.

That was the first time I had taken it out on a track, and I am impressed with it.

What was the issue with your tranny? Your Abarth is pretty wild and I wanted to see more of it on the track :(

I had the older style of tranny which uses check balls and forks, and the metal the forks sit in got distorted by the excess power from the big turbo/tune and they would no longer slide. Easy fix: new (current) transmission that uses a simple gate that won't distort like this one did... Yeah you looked smooth out there man!

You were right about that big dip right at the apex on turn 1. Hitting that at the limit would really get squirely. I avoided it sillylol
