I'm in Orange County and no this will be my first time. I've been to the drag strip but not to an actually track.

It'd be great to get more 8ths out there.

Pro pointer:

Be sure to enter into the HFF(Honda Front engine Front wheel drive) Challenge when you register online regardless of if you feel competitive or not. It supports a great series and the best part is you need timing to participate so they give it to you for FREE. Saturday only though. Been there a couple times and if it's not sandy that particular weekend, it's a blast!

I will definitely register for the HFF. Thanks for the pointer!

What exactly do you mean by FREE timing? Like lap timing?

Yes, free lap timing. See how you improve throughout the day.

My buddy is going to track his GSR on Kumho AST's. It makes for good practice.

You should be fine. 3/5 of your sessions will be instruction and passing practice so they'll hold up.

So 3/5 sessions are instruction even in the HFF competition?

I just read the rules and regulations for HFF. Looks legit!

Yeah. The instruction has nothing to do with HFF. If it's your first track day, they make you go through instruction so that you don't kill yourself or any one else. It should go something like, parade lap, low speed passing instruction, high speed passing instruction, then last 2 maybe even 3 sessions they'll let you run free.
