Chin Track Days

Thanks for the feedback. I can see how the opinions above could come about for we Mustangers. Duane drives a 6 banger automatic faster than 90% of the GT350 owners could lap their cars. A new group with a bunch of high dollar rides like Chin wouldn't know his ability, and he gets an asshat for an instructor that exacerbates the problem. Bad experience.

I'm sure I'll see a little bit of the Mustang prejudice as I attend tracks for the first time. I'll just keep it where it's mowed, try to develop a relationship with my instructor (which I'd like to have for my first session at a new track), and pass a bunch of cars that 3V mustangs aren't supposed to pass.

Those "likes" are still flowing for anyone else interested. Big prizes ahead.

Absolutely. VIR is my "home" track, and Bill Foster was instrumental in getting me around there effectively. All the rest you mention I have never been to, and all are on my list. It will take a while at one track per year, but I'll take you up on your offer if it makes for a better experience.

My wife has a list of countries. I have a list of tracks. Sounds reasonable.

Works well as VIR is my absolute favorite track!
 
I’ve only had good experiences with Chin. Top notch organization. Lots of track time, etc. Like all HPDE groups, if you are using an instructor results may vary. My personal experience with their instructors has been very good. Mark W. (Corvette guy) helped me immensely at WGI, and Jade built on that.
