That is great to hear. A fellow I know does the same back east at the tracks around Ottawa.
Great way for the track to increase use and make a few extra bucks.

I don't have a speedy car by any stretch but if they have some kind of track day(s) for vintage cars, I'd be interested...
Wonder if they have to be safety race modified for though....

It was free for me, by invitation. An all day event.
Memberships are apparently around $40-45k I was told.

And, yes, an RS5 would be a very fun choice for that track.

Pretty much what the August Motors track day is, a sign up and drive event. $650 for the day.

They also have 2.5 day Driver Training courses that give you a certain novice-type of competition racing license, too :) $2600 for that.
