    Anyone considering this in the spring? I'll be a rookie but thinking about doing it. Any insights?

    Besides the money, you'll need every safety device known to man, if our cars fit into the category I think they will. Check out their Rule Book.

    I read the rules, We can skate through in the bottom touring class with just a 2.5 lb fire exthinguisher - and all rookies must run in this class anyway. The grand touring class - we just need the fire extinguisher, a 5 point restraint - and arm restraints

    I absolutely want to do it, either that or the Salt flats...

    Actually doing it is another thing...

    The one insight I can give (3rd party), is fuel consumption. There's a video of a Viper ACR that essentially ran out of gas running ~160mph for the course...

    (17.5gal tank according to video)

    Google...

    Nevada shuts down a series of highways/roads and lets you run your car flat-out

    ~40 miles long I think...

    (Within their rules, certain limits/conditions)

    While I would never condone this, some people sign up in the Rookie class, which is restrictive as suggested above and then under the premise that they'll never go back again, break imposed tech/target speed limits and open it wide up.

    When you do this you get banned... uncertain for how long...

    Tech speed is "max" allowed

    Target is "average" over the course
