I went and would happily spend the $250 to beat up BMW's cars again. It was a very well organized event.

The instructors were not pandering to the lowest common denominator either and really pushed everyone to increase the speed.

Does anyone know how many cars you get to try on and how many laps per car? And I read somewhere half day is 250$ for 5 hr right with refreshments? Highly interested to learn from the Pros.

I did the half day last year at cota. Full track was three laps in a M3 then switch drivers for three more laps. Then move to the M4 and repeat. They actually ran at a little more pace than I thought they would until someone would start to lag.

Also did standing start and first to stop on the box drag race kind of thing. M5, X6M, X3M.

Then did ~ 17 sec autocross course twice in a M2.

All in all fun day. Non full lap stuff was kind of eh but still a good time. Will do it again. Donít expect to learn much about tracking though. But be warned it can be a gateway drug to getting hooked on tracking.

Pro tip - go first on the full laps and see if you can get your passenger carsick - extra laps for you what what

Anyone going this year? After going 2 years in a row going for $250, can't see going now for $500.

This event used to sell out within a few days, just checked and still see multiple days with 50+ slots opened.

Not worth it anymore and it seems everyone else agrees judging by the numerous open slots.

I will be there. Went in 2017 but skipped 2018. I still think it's worth the price to beat up someone else's cars for a half day.
