    Tracks for NY Area

    Does anyone know of any tracks that I can bring my P to somewhat near New York City?

    Re: Tracks for NY Area

    Yeah, I second that if anyone knows

    Re: Tracks for NY Area

    I don't live anywhere near there, but Lime Rock and Watkins Glen come to mind...

    Re: Tracks for NY Area

    depending on how far are you willing to drive to get to a track here are some options. the Glen is a phenomenal track btw. pocono is very fast when they run the full course.

    Pocono http://www.poconoraceway.com/

    Watkins Glen http://www.theglen.com/

    Lime Rock http://www.limerock.com/index.htm

    Smmit Point http://www.summitpoint-raceway.com/

    Re: Tracks for NY Area

    Is there a specific way to book time on the track -- what else is needed - helmet, firesuit? I haven't been onthe track yet...I'd like to know more information.

    Thanks!

    Re: Tracks for NY Area

    AJ,

    The best way is to join the Porsche Club: www.pca.org. This way
    you get pretty get good instructors, good track time and you are surrounded by a very, very helpful and friendly crowd.

    There are other clubs around, you may want to check out
    PDA: www.pdadrivingschool.com

    Enjoy! Going to a racetrack is by far the smartest and the most fun thing you can do with your car.

    Re: Tracks for NY Area

    AJ, there is also Bridgehampton near Sag Harbor on Long Island:

    I went there a few years back and it was fun...

    Re: Tracks for NY Area

    aj,

    two pca regions close to you are ny chapter http://www.metronypca.org/

    and new jersey http://www.nnjr-pca.com/site/

    all is required is a helmet that is snell 2000 approved. note that snell 2005 helmets just became available.

    you will find more details on de events at the above pca regions web sites.

    Re: Tracks for NY Area

    Take the beautiful ride to Watkins Glen. You'll be glad you did. As an upstate New Yorker, they're by far the best.

    Re: Tracks for NY Area

    Alas, Bridgehampton is no longer with us. It was closed several years ago. It is currently being developed as a golf course with luxury homes.

    Re: Tracks for NY Area

    We need a NYC drive before the snow hits. Haven't been on one since I got the 997

    Re: Tracks for NY Area

    Steve, I did not realize that it closed! Too bad! It was a nice track...
