The local PCA puts on a montly time trial at one of the Navy outlying fields,(Cabannis field down here). The March and May event utilize their long course, or 3.5 mi course. This should be a blast.
The monthly cost is normally $15 for the time trial,(yes, no typo there!), which is a one day event, two 20 min lapping sessions with two sets of three timed laps later in the day - and instructors are available. The March and May events are two day events, with 40 min lapping sessions,(2), and the same three timed laps with a warm up lap. This weekend and May event are $100. Extremely cheap considering the going rate of time trials and drivers schools!
You can tech on Friday night, or Sat. morning with the practice sessions on Sat and timed runs on Sunday. On sunday, there may even be a mile long straight,(6000 ft runway, may take out the kink if drivers agree).
If you are interested or just want to watch, come on out! Again, it is in Corpus Christi, about two hours south of San Antonio and 2.5 from Houston. Hotels are fairly cheap, and I can help you find one. I would love it if other BMW's would be out there to help me battle the Porsche drivers,(I am beating most of them, but still working on the top guys).
Hope to see you out there! Remember, every month, second Sat. And there is an Autocross the first sunday of each month.
