This will be the hottest day I've ever had for a trackday. My AC's broken too...still looking forward to a great time though! Gonna load up a huge cooler full of water.

No AC is no big deal on track. Have to have the windows down anyway. Unless you are trailering the car, then the trip back and forth from the track is going to suck.

OnGrid looks to require long sleeve cotton shirts. So in-car is going to be toasty warm.

It’s gonna be warm for sure. I haven’t done a hot track day since my motorcycle track days years ago. Glad that TH has the covered parking

Today (Sunday 5/24) wasn’t as hot as predicted. It was 85 + or - with a nice breeze. Met @Vadim and his daughter today, nice to meet you guys. I had a good day although a lot of black flags thrown and it seemed like a lot of people forgot how to drive and have track etiquette. but maybe they forgot after a 3 month time out from track days. You guys doing the Monday event have a good time.

How did they handle the driver meetings? In order to keep social distancing protocols in place on track day, the last few events I've attended had virtual drivers meetings on Zoom a few nights before. The concept is great, however I think the first timers and greener novices miss out on some of the critical information, leading to some really sketchy beginner groups. Not a big deal as I usually run intermediate, however car count was low enough at the last event they ran two groups, combining beginner/intermediate. I quickly asked to move into advanced!

@67GTA the group meeting was sent out via email and a DocuSign was completed. The novice group had a meeting outside in an open area with masks on. Each group had a mandatory download meeting after their 1st session, with a mask on and 6 feet apart. If you didn’t attend, you didn’t get a sticker on your windshield to go back out. But we had a red flag 5 mins into our 1st session and people just didn’t want to stop. Luckily, it was just a blown engine and some fluid but people didn’t take it serious enough IMO. So I think the mandatory meeting should be Zoom or on-site.

First, thank you again to @byronj for helping my daughter.

Last couple session went much better than morning, so it seems that everyone just need to get back to driving. I thought that in person download session could be handled better from social distancing perspective but it was not bad (person running it didn't have mic, so everyone had to come closer to hear him). I think my main complain was about number of advance drivers in lower groups, but I think people signed up for what they could find.
