Min miles before HPDE?

I have about 2,600 miles on the car now and I'm thinking about doing an HPDE in mid November. I don't drive the car that often and will probably have only around 3,000 miles by then. Does anyone think more break-in miles are appropriate before the HPDE? I did the 1200 mile service already.

You should be fine. I've known cars to hit the track with less miles than that.

My car was on the track at barber Motorsports park at 1150 miles. Had the break in fluids changed out the following day. Nearly 10k miles later all is quite well. Enjoy your first event!
