    Got my reservation in for a weekend HPDE at Watkins Glen with NASA for the first weekend in October, will be there with my son and some of his friends. I'm still in HPDE 1 (beginners on track) while these other guys are running HPDE 3 or 4. Besides plenty of driving for 2 days, it should be fun hanging out, and getting to experience such a well known track. With such a big place I'm sure the Abarth won't be the fastest car, so I'll be working to keep it clean and improve my technique for shifting and positioning the car on track for the corners. It's way harder than you'd think, but just way too much fun. I think my tires will still be good, but will have to check the pads/rotors and brake fluid before this event, certainly don't want to run out of brakes in the middle of track time.

    That's great! I'd love to get to drive Watkins glen. Never really been on a nationally recognized track. The old irp probably then best I've been on. I don't do any competitive stuff, but I have been doing hpde type events for about 15 or 16 years. The abarth has kind of pushed itself into the position of my 'real" sports car and is getting most of the abuse these days.

    Have fun at the glen!

    I got a 15 min session on VIR for a Victory Junction fundraiser. I’ve had both Fiats around Charlotte Motor Speedway and that’s fun but VIR is life changing.

    Mikeyjm1,
    That's a fun event at VIR, did it a couple times when I lived in Virginia Beach. Sure it's not racing, but driving on a track with elevation changes and etc. is a blast! CMS is fun too. Have you done the charity laps at Martinsville? They usually do that in December for a toy drive.

    Here's some VIR in 2016 in the FIAT 500 Abarth
