    I've only seen it from the Ironman perspective, but I have seen race cars in the area on race weekends, so it's not completely a no-go.
    Thanks for the heads up. Will look into it.

    I signed on for the June WGI event. Feel free to hit me up if anyone is going.

    Never stayed in the Cabins!We still stay downtown but it might be too nice for us!The chocolates on the pillow is a nice thing after a long track day

    Seneca Lodge and the bar onsite have a great deal of WGI folklore that is also worth checking out. Not as modern a facility but I think it's normally a fair bit cheaper than the Harbour Hotel.

    Here is a video from one of Joe's events from my M3 in the advanced group.I got Black flagged for my student having a camera that was not tethered!

    Hey guys,

    I am thinking about going to LCMT and WGI for the first time this year, so I am reaching out to my OTA crew to see if anyone else would be interested in doing a road trip together. It's probably going to be a driving school / HPDE type of event.

    The dates I found are as follow:

    WGI
    June 22 - 23 with Phoenix CMR
    July 15 - 16 with Chin Motorsports (more expensive)

    LCMT
    July 6 - 8 with PCA (right after CTMP weekend)
    August 17 - 18 with BMW Quebec (right after SMP event)

    Highlighted in bold are what I have in mind given cost consideration, but I am flexible if there's some strong interest for one venue over another. Anyone wanna do this? We can share hotel accommodation costs and look out for each other throughout the trip. I think it's gonna be fun. Let's discuss or shoot me a PM!

    Awesome idea!! I can't fit it in the budget for time or money this year, but I would love to do it another time.
