      Thinking about heading down from Buffalo NY. I don't know how I feel about tracking the car so far from home.

      Ok, so If had actually read the whole thing with the links and all, I would have gotten all the details.

      Was at summit last weekend and saw the new Satsis building right at the main entrance gate. Doesn't seem to have much going on though - the gate folks said it has been used much if at all yet.

      Only limited to golf R and R32? Isn't the Audi A3 3.2 just the R32 in different a different skin?

      i cannot attend this time....the rest of the .:R32 community please, please, please register and attend to show VWOA there is plenty of interest for this type of event.

      those owners with the time, means, and proximity, have a duty to carry the torch for those of us that cannot attend. 150 slots is a lot....i may register just as a supporter, without attending.

      went to wookiees in the woods again this year...best time ever with phenomenal people. but, a proper track day with instruction plus the die-hardiest VW enthusiasts in VW's premium hot-hatch [sorry GTI ] seems to good to pass up.

      hell, i'm now trying to figure out how i can make this event, you know why? because .:RacecaR!

      *edit* update: literally shed a tear or two that i reside over 1,000 miles away from this event.

      Hey all,
      I just picked up an 08 R32 CPO a few weeks ago. I previously had an 08 STI that I tracked twice last summer. It was modified (turbo-back plus tune) so I already assumed I may have warranty issues.

      If I do this event should I worry about VWofA marking my vehicle as having been tracked and give me trouble if I end up having a warranty claim? I have no plans to modify the R anytime soon.

      Thanks

      There have been many VWoA sponsored track events and I have yet to hear of any issues with valid warranty claims.

      I don't think it's an issue. I've been to a couple of the VWOA track days out West, and there was never a whiff of that kind of attitude. That sort of news would get around quickly.

      Need to talk to the wife about it.

      Really new to this, and I realize that after reading the page it says a helmet is required. Can you rent one there? I know someone before asked this but I haven't seen a response or answer so far, and the website doesn't really answer it either.

      Really hoping to go though. It's only roughly 3 hours from my house so that's not a bad drive.

      Where are you guys meeting up to cruise down?

      Also where is everyone staying? I sleep pretty deep and the sound of R32's starting would wake me up from any deep sleep.

      PSU's R woke me up one morning at WiTW. It was the most glorious "alarm" I've ever woken up too.

      We will prob be leaving from Summit, NJ.

      We are staying at the courtyard marriott in winchester, VA. It is about 20 minutes from the track. We will have 3-4 truck/trailer setups so we will need a place to stay with a large parking lot.
