Default ACNA-NJ @ NJMP Lightning Course 10.24-10.25.

Hey Guys, I'll be running tech inspection at this event but we are really in danger of having to cancel the event due to a lack of participants. We badly need both students and instructors. We've reached out to other clubs like NJ chapter of BMW CCA which is holding an event at the same track on the 26th (Do you fancy a three day run at Lightning?) ACNA-NJ has already had to scratch the advanced/instructor only day on 10.23, please help us keep the event on the calendar.

Excerpt from original message below:

Regarding the Driving School, we are also in danger of needing to cancel the event, again due to the low number of registrants. As such we will make a formal decision no later than Friday, October 9th. We are asking for your help in recruiting and are offering a $50 discount to any student you recruit. Simply have them register: here http://www.motorsportreg.com/index.c...3AC6FC274B39EE and use the code Fall2009 during checkout. We hope one last push for registrations will be enough to have the event.

We are also still looking for instructors, so please try to have more attend as well. If they have not instructed with us before, please ask them to e-mail our Chief Instructor: Thomas

We will have pre-tech on Friday night at the Country Inn in Millville from 4-8pm, along with a last-chance inspection on Saturday morning at the track from 7-8am.

If you have any questions email me at pbecker@acna-nj.org.

THANKS!

Hey Robert, Thanks for cross posting the event info.

BTW... a 4200lb wagon is A-OK since it isn't an SUV. I've seen everything from a Seven varaint (~1000lbs) to an Audi S8 (~4000lbs) on on track at HPDE events held at Thunderbolt.

I'm not sure but I can probably find out what ACNA-NJ ran during our last two events at Thunderbolt.

BTW... I'm certain I've seen a wagon like yours on track with ACNA but I think it was at Watkins Glen.

We have a few very very dedicated track monkeys on our forums.

a got out on the West Coast has been tearing up tracks for the past 3 years, the looks he gets passing people are pricless.

Hey Rob, I think for this event we are looking at 22-26 students per group. I think we were close to that figure at previous events at Thunderbolt.
