WANTED: Diehard HPDE drivers who want to expand their horizons. We would like to make a special trip to join the Texas PCA Regions’ “Austin Schnell Fest” DE at Circuit of the Americas on November 16-18 (current registration is for the June event). The plan is to caravan from Colorado Springs on the 14th with an overnight stop enroute (location TBD) and arriving in Austin on the 15th. This will give us plenty of rest before three fun-filled days of driving at COTA. Registration cost for the DE is $945, not cheap, but if COTA is on your bucket list, come and join us. Please contact Rob Provost or Alex Ching if interested. We are also looking for anyone interested in sharing AirBnB or VRBO to help with travel cost. Stay tuned for more info as they become available. (posted 18 Apr)
