I was out to Corning, NY this summer to hit the Museum of Glass with my fiance and we took a side trip to the Glen for the Thunder Road tour...it was a shit ton of fun and I recommend it to any of you guys if you're out that way...Here are some of the pics...

Pace car stopped us during the second lap at the Start Finish Line so we could take pictures

Funny part was the website said there would be a 55mph top speed and no "passing or hot-dogging"...the tour turned out to be a bit more fun than that...

The pace driver was a young guy, brand new Tundra...He took off like a bat out of hell and it was kind of a free for all...within reason. I gained a new respect for race-built cars, half way through the third and last lap my stock brakes were fading fast and my tires were stinkin up a storm...all in all it was one of the best side trips I've ever taken

I've been on that track for a Porsche club SCCA events back when I owned my 944 and was determined to kill it (I hated that car). It is definitely a fun place

Sounds good to me. I'm sure we could convince a couple more people by then. Hell we'll be down that way maybe we can just get a bunch of people from TOTD to go with (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif)

Is anybody interested in going here this year? Maybe turn it into a NE meet or something. If I can get enough interest, I'll start a thread.

I haven't been bringing any money in for the past 2 weeks and probably won't until after MTOD...
