    These events sound cool and I'm sure they roll out the red carpet (as they should), but $1500 to drive your own car on track for an hour or $4K for 1 day of instruction with their car is crazy. If you just want some track time with some coaching, there are any number of clubs that car make that happen for a whole weekend for $500.

    I'm not worried about the $$ (this isn't a where can we save a dollar or two kinda thing), it's more about meeting all other Mac drivers/owners and the experience.

    I know several people that have done it and loved it--first class all the way. Met people they are friends to this day and meet up at other events such as Monte Carlo. I was curious if anyone here has gone. The one they do at COTA is a blast I hear and the drivers are not rental guys they pick up, these are McLaren factory drivers they fly over and know the car better than anyone else.

    I know several on the other forum have and raved as well. Anyways, I'm signing up for US event, just waiting on dates.

    $4K is a pretty good deal to drive their car... Round trip shipping from around the States to COTA would be around that amount in itself.

    Let's do it. As soon as COTA info is released they are sending to me. Will be a blast.

    I'm down. I have been there for a few F1 races, it would be great to drive the course.

    I like the idea of thrashing someone else car. :)

    I've tracked my GT3RS on the track twice and it's a blast...that front straight in a 720...yes please!

    You and me both -- much less (financial) stress when that rock comes flying into the windshield at 150 MPH or some idiot slams into you :D

    I will have to admit that I am much hero (and quicker) in someone else's car! :)

    It's been in Nov in past years--they have not released 2019 dates yet. Mac USA concierge said she would email me with info when released.
