Default Any OSO'ers been invited to "Hot Laps"?

Just curious. I'm responsible for all the on-track and car-related aspects of this program for a "major" cigarette company. It's a very cool program, offering rides in various combinations of stock cars, road-race cars and drift cars, depending on what track we go to. (The event is an invitation-only promotion for consumers on the company's mailing list, so I can't get tickets for anyone. Sorry!)

We travel all around the country, so it occurred to me that, sooner or later I'm bound to encounter some of you derelicts.... er - fine people... at one of these shindigs. We're in Houston right now, but will be all over the country during the course of the year.

SO - Who has been, or has been invited?

Thats what I miss about going to Porsche Club track days. Some of the PCA guys bring their other toys out to play! Some even let you take it for a spin............

Forget what the company name is. My Brother joined some time share set up for yearly dues, he can borrow from a pool of cars. Have normal average rental car stuff for basic membership to highest end you can think of.........Think they have track days as well...... I've done Skip Barber that was fun...Seen the exotic car share stuff advertised in Dupont Registry, etcetera...... Kind of like having a time shared jet without having too store it and maintain it all by yourself.

Wouldn't it be fun to go to work if your office looked like this...

I almost took up smoking again just to get a chance to go to Chucks "program"
