COTA Sept. 12th

Anyone here going? Yes it's stupid expensive, but it's one of those one time bucket list things.
Figured since CMRA will never race there because of cost might as well go for a track day and sample a world premier track.

Re: COTA Sept. 12th

I went earlier this year and had a blast. The back straight is amazing.

I emailed the tire guy that does the COTA events with ridesmart about possible gearing for 08 R6, he suggested -1 front and +2 or 3 rear. Sound right?
I don't want to be bouncing off the rev limiter while I'm still too far from the braking zone.

Oh hell no lol. I run -1/+1 and still almost topped out. COTA is a fast flowing track. If it were technical like MSRH, -1/+2 would be okay but even still I think it's too short.

Right on. Thanks for the info. Is the track hard on tires? Bringing an extra rear just in case.

Not particularly. It's pretty smooth so you should be okay but depends on your current rear condition and pace.

Thanks for the advice. Went with -1 and stock and almost topped out down that back straight.
Tires had four sprints on them and were good. Rear was starting to go at the end of the day but managed to put in my best time on my last session.
Not running race pace but managed a 2:28.741 with a clear lap. Not sure what the fast guys are running. I'm assuming low 20's?

Awesome, glad you had fun! Not sure what the fast guys were running. I was just out there to have fun. Was it packed?

Group 3 wasn't too bad. I made sure after the first couple of sessions to make it out to pit out when they made the call so I didn't have too much traffic.
The other groups seemed completely full.
