I really wish I could go to racing school. That would be the ultimate vacation in my opinion. I make at least one track event with the Mercedes Club every year. I will definately get the GTI out there this year. I'm really looking forward to that.
My first book about "how to drive" was by Bob Bondurant. If you can't afford to go to the class, read his book. A little education by the master will allow you to enjoy you GTI more than spending $800. on an exhaust. You'll learn how a car truly moves and how you can control it.
I can't wait to go. Have any of you seen www.windingroad.com online auto mag? I won their promotion for the 3 day racing class at b. bondurant. ;D Looking to get a new GTI in the next 2 weeks. Great forum here!
