I am happy to announce that Justin Bells' GT Motorsport Experience has become the official racing school of Z06VETTE.COM.

I had a good conversation with Justin on Wed. and the plans thus far are as follows.
After all his races (only one left this year) he will log on and post his thouhts and perception of the races.
There will be chat sessions set up in advance and possibly even a chat after some of his races.

I am trying to get 7-10 of us signed up for a one day class on the 6th of Nov. They will give us 15% off which comes out to $850.00.

FUBU and I had a great time yesterday at the track, going there to take a couple of pics of the first trackside delivery for Bob Baker we some how found ourselves invited for the whole day.

Okay guys who is in?
You cannot buy this much fun anywhere.

Tom - Les, Is that a firm date? What do we need to do to get involved? Does he have enough Z06s to supply of all with one? Obviously we would want a Z06 not a camaro. Does the training include time on the 2 1/4 mile road course? What things do we need to buy/supply; suit, helmet, gloves, goggles? Is this a 1 day, all day event? They have a summer special for Florida residents, under $500 is this a similar program? Who did you talk to down there and can we give them a call to ask some questions?
Sorry for all of the questions, just looking for total information. Could be a great time to get the need for speed fed.
I am interested if everything falls into place. That is a nice 1 1/2 hour cruise down the freeway from me. I have been about something like this since being at Daytona for the rolex24. I will be watching the posts or send me some email with details.

Don,
The summer special for $495.00 was for a half day, which is 10% off we are getting 15% off for a full day. (8:45-4:00)
Everything is supplied including lunch.
Everyone drives all the cars the F body, Coupe and Z06.
By 1 in the afternoon you will be driving the track and by 3 you will not be able to remove the smile from your face. I saw this yesterday, not one of the 21 students yesterday could stop grinning.
This school is first class.
The facilities are first rate, and the instructors are fantastic.
I have been talking with Eric Burch about the class and we need at least 7 to get the rate.
You can reach Eric at 1-877-468-3666.
Make sure you tell him you are with Z06VETTE.COM.

I promise you it will be something not soon forgotten.
I will be posting more about the school and also the trackside delivery in the racing Topics.

Excellent Maverick,
One of the instructors is Shane Lewis who is driving for Eric Burch the owner of the Viper team using the Team Orca vipers.

The GTS class at Atlanta this year is going to be great to watch.
C5Rs, Saleens, Vipers, and Ferrari.
Sometimes it gets a little boring just watching 3 or 4 cars in the GTS Class, this promises to be at least 10. :D

Tom, count me in. I will block of the days from work today. Let me know when the details are finalized. Hopefully we will get the necessary folks to make it happen. I am waiting to hear from a couple of my co-workers to see if they are interested. I am sure you will keep us posted. Thanks for all of your effort.
