Advanced Driving Skills School, Aug 2

Hey everybody -

I'm doing the Boston Chapter's Advanced Driving Skills School at NHMS in a couple weekends, and everybody should come along.

Check it out: http://www.boston-bmwcca.org/events/...px?EventID=371

It sounds sweet and useful:

The Advanced Driving Skills School is designed to help you improve your driving skills and to learn about vehicle dynamics. The school's dual purpose is to prepare students for our High Performance Driving School and to teach skills useful in everyday driving situations.
But really, it had me at:

Quote:
SKID PAD - The practical exercises include spending part of the day on our skid pad and figure eight courses, learning about: understeer, oversteer, steering with the throttle, secondary effects, "the line", and power-slides.

Oh, I'd love to go to this but I just noticed it now and it seems that registration is already closed. Do you think there is any way to register late?

Oh well, looks like it's all filled up. I need to pay closer attention to this forum so I don't keep missing out on things!

Yeah, I signed up, and then got an email a week later saying it was full. Bummed. I have signed up for the October track days @ NHMS.

Sorry that nobody else made it! It was a lot of fun - some pics are up in this Picasa album - not mine, but I told the guy in the silver M coupe that I'd get pictures of his runs on his camera if he took pictures of mine. A worthwhile deal, I think!
