    I'm starting to check some price tomsee if it is possible and not a bloodbath.

    Bucket list item.

    Totally down to get in on it. Depends on timing might want to rent a racer.

    Yes I would be interested, in that case. There is a NASA TX typically on Cinco De Mayo weekend, for starters. But there could be other opportunities also.

    2020 --- Cinco De Mayo NASA race is a good choice , since many could come to do the Time Trials and HPDEs also!

    Yes. Interested. I may be leaning toward a rental if there are options for that.

    Are there any driving schools based at COTA?

    I’m interested as well. I’d jump in in an auto transport also.

    I could have interest if there are available rentals and when. I have family near the track and have a 100 acre family ranch about 30-45 minutes away. Ideal location for a gathering.

    @flyhalf $1,750 isn’t too bad for a round trip, but I’d have to go the enclosed route for my car. Might just do a rental at that point. Either way, sounds like a good trip!

    Honestly the beauty is not driving at COTA itself.
    It is driving with your own special car :)
    I start saving money.
    I'm gonna do it.

    Great track. Been there Jan/Feb 4 of the last 5 years with Chin and MVP. Both run great events, and it’s a great time to avoid the winter for those of us in mid west or east coast climates, BUT the weather in Austin is unpredictable that time of year.

    March/April may be a better a better option and Chin had an event early April this year.
