      Really hoping to go though. It's only roughly 3 hours from my house so that's not a bad drive.
      I checked with Trackdaze, and they do not have any loaners apparently.

      I want to go, but until I find a helmet, I can't really signup. Hopefully this will change this weekend. Not sure if my friends helmets are SA2005 certified or not. We'll see....Wife ok'd everything though.

      What would you guys recommend doing to the car for this type of track day? Oil change and new brake pads before?

      oil change, brake pads need to be in good shape.. if money isn't an issue a quality brake fluid is deff a plus. Stainless lines and tyrol stiffening kit is always nice too.

      don't sleep on this opportunity if you can make it, tracking your car for the first time gives you a whole new appreciation for the car.

      I have some spare used parts if anyone needs a set of pads or tyrol stiffening kit.

      do you have to bring your R32 or Golf R to the event? How will they know if you have a such a car? And if you do use your car for the event, wouldn't VoA be flagging your car for TD1?

      does anybody read links or posts completely anymore? jeebus.

      it's the first line of the link @ the site that is highlighted in yellow, with an exclamation point, see below:

      ONLY OPEN to 2004, 2008, and 2012 Golf R32/R owners. You must bring your 'R' to the event.

      question was to find if it is an absolute necessity, given that this is VoA sponsored event and they could flag your car for TD1

      valid concern? maybe. contact VWoA and get a response.

      TD1, if ever even implemented, is for modded vehicles. an HPDE shouldn't fall in the scope. it's a driving event, not a race. sure, car has to go through tech, but that is generally performed by track staff for safety reasons.

      it would also be VW's worst PR move ever...thank you for purchasing a $34,000+ performance vehicle from us and not one of our competitors. please bring it to an exclusive track event that we have sponsored and invited you to so we can void your warranty and deny any future TSB's and recall work. thanks for coming.

      Its not as if everybody at the event will take their cars together to the dealer for repair right after the event and all get denied warranty coverage. If one or two go at a later time and gets told by the dealer there are mods..who's to know whether it was from the event or from their scanning of the car.

      Anyway, Subaru has been known to give owners of new cars free track days and then flag those cars that showed up.

      So show up in a ski mask, with license plate & vin covered and don't let anybody near your car.

      ^^^ That was Mitsibushi, my buddy autocrossed his EVO VIII and got a note that canceled his warranty....

      Subaru delivered its cars with a SCCA memership application in the glovebox....

      Therefore I believe your statement to be incorrect, wrong Mfr......

      Open to MkIV's? I'd love to come, also for the VWoA experience. Don't know if we could get the R beast together in time tho.

      All R32 models and golf R models are good to go. Beyond that, Powermind would have to answer

      I thought it said 150 cars and if your not an R you would be wait listed. If not enough R's register to fill then perhaps it's open to others. I think TT's would be a perfect complement.

      Hey Guys / Gals -

      I've been to the track quite a few times now and have a fairly decent list of stuff (lemme know if anyone wants this) that I regularly bring including a tent, chairs, tools, spare parts, fluids, etc. that I am more than willing to share around. The guys that I usually go out with bring a jack and stands, but they aren't coming along for the ride to summit point. Looking for someone that is going to have a jack and stands, should I need to throw the R up during the day?

      Just signed up last night. Looks like I was around the 50th person to sign up.

      I went to the TrackDaze R32 event at the New Jersey Motorsports Park in 2009. It was my first track event, and now I'm hooked! For $50 you can't go wrong - free lunch and t-shirt on top of the track time. The classroom instruction on the 2009 event was excellent.

      I think I'll be bringing a car jack, but no jack stands. At this point I'm planning on bringing a separate set of lighter weight 17" rims and tires for the track.

      Can't wait to see (and hear) all the modified .:R's out there!

      I want to go, but a 1,000 miles each way solo is a bit much for me at the moment... but I'm thinking about how to make it work...

      bump this up to get some more r owners in here and keep the gti/gli's out. I only want that amazing R soundtrack all day.

      oldracer you should definitely do it. read a lot of threads on here with your advice opinions and i'd like to pick your brain. I'm sure someone is cruising up.

      I'm going to be heading out on Friday the 27th early afternoon from eastern PA.

      If anyone wants to meet up and caravan out hit me up and we can set things up. In years past we would meet up at the Cabela's just off Rt 78 in PA. I would figure on meeting there about 1 pm.
