    Well you can pass, just not in corners.
    They let u go in intervals of like 10-15 seconds probably.

    The interval is usually about 15 to 20 seconds. There is passing, only on the straightaways, but just like passing on the streets you have to pass safely. It pays to be courteous and let faster drivers by. If you are racing into the corners, at every lapping day I've been to they'll give you one warning then you are thrown off the track. Yes, speeds are high but as long as no one is driving like they think they're micheal schumacher and going beyond both the limits of the car and their personal limits, as well as following a few basic (and common sense) rules for safety, there's no reason why anyone should need to be afraid of the track.
    Drag racing is for fast cars. Solo 2 is for fast drivers.

    Bogus BS if you ask me... if you own/drive a BMW M3... you should DRIVE IT!

    Look at my Jetta for example... one track day later -- and I'm hooked. I drove the CRAP out of my car that day... and it's still running super smooth (no problems)...

    Good ole` Volkswagen!

    Cheers!

    hehehe... just following your advice buddy:

    I don't think it's the tires and brakes the guy's worried about (I buy my own replacement brakes and tires).....
    Brakes are something I expect to "go"; I can still stop can't I! LOL

    Cheers!

    Yes, speeds are high
    So a rough estimate of the average speed?

    depends on the car, on the straits, high rollers like kenny hit like 220, the average car hits 170-200, corner 6 is mid 100's


    EDIT!
    Rage, the Insanely fast "Arrogant Bastard" Hits roughly 240 on low boost!

    My car topped out at 239 on the CSCC track day. That's on pump gas, 12-13psi boost .
