I was there with NASA, then the autocross the week after was TCUSA.

I think they're not coming back to LRP until October and even then they're not doing HPDE1 at that event.

Would have gotten out there earlier but wasn't so hot on starting out without an instructor. He took me for a ride in his new GT3RS next session. Jesus Christ.

How competitive are guys at those type of events? I want to get out on the track this year and my dad wants to run his new CTS-V wagon but neither of us want to deal with any a-holes overdriving their cars because they think they are racing. Track night in America was pretty chill.

Seemed pretty chill to me. The only HPDE people I saw that really got into it were the instructors in the instructors-only group. All in all I'd strongly recommend it.

For HPDE1 you have to have an instructor onboard and they decide when you're ready to move up so things are kept pretty well under control.

Edit: They're also very strict about passing in the novice groups. Don't defend (it's a trackday, not a Grand Prix) and don't go until you get pointed by (since it means they probably don't see you). Not that it means you only get to pass if your car makes good power.
