I'm a big fan of the drive events - too bad none of them will be around my neck of the woods until July.

Most of the links don't have the dates yet, but they tend to follow the same schedules each year.

May I suggest that we also include events that are moderately priced? (in addition to totally free ones). I remember some BMW or Lexus event back a few year ago was $40 for 2 hours or something... IMO that's well worth the $$$.

Just because you couldn't find an event that worked for you, or that would let you inLMAO , doesn't mean it's a bad post. It means you're a bad person.

Thanks for the response. I called and they gave me 1 wrong letter in the code. I just entered the code and registered. Awesome! Repped to both sodehu and daveamoose.

Now, on to the Mercedes AMG Performance Tour.

After checking out the Laguna Seca calendar and not seeing anything on there that would give away when and if Mercedes AMG planned on going to Laguna Seca, I decided to call Laguna Seca. The first lady said she thinks it might be in November, but she does not have an actual up to date schedule yet, she then said perhaps the lady who rents out the track knows more. I left her a message and just received a voicemail message. First she mentioned the Skip Barber AMG training class and then said, you are probably calling about the AMG event that Mercedes is putting on. She said it is scheduled for November 13th thru Nov 21st!!!!

keep the week free guys and gals in the NORCAL area.

Has anyone posted info for Suzuki?

http://www.kizashikicks.com/

Probably the best car that nobody knows about yet.
I posted this event, post #1931.

I will go to this event this Saturday and let you all know how this event is.
