    Recently moved here from NorCal. Sears Point, Laguna-Seca, Thunderhill.
    Been to Wild Horse Pass (Main) and love the straightaway though the course is dated (chewed up and choppy). Guess I'm NorCal track surface spoiled.
    AMP looks like a flat course too. Missing elevation.

    I live near Allentown, Pa, so I'm close to 4 great tracks. 90 minutes from New Jersey Motorsports Park, 3 hours from Summit Point, 3 hours to Lime Rock Park, and only 1 hour from Pocono (roadcourse inside the Nascar tri-oval) I'd consider NJMP to be my home track as I drive there the most.

    Summit Point - 2 hours

    Just completed a set of NASA HPDE 3 sessions at SP yesterday. Consistent 1:25, and managed a PB of 1:24.7! Perfect weather too.

    Heading to VIR with Trackdaze in November for a day of the full course and a day of the Grand course!

    Update 11/5: Returned from a TrackDaze VIR event (Full and Grand) - achieved a PB of 2:11 on the Full, ,and 3:06s on the Grand!!

    When were you last at SP? Did you race under WERA or CCS?

    Its been a years. I did a lot of track days with TeamProMotion. And since my leathers seem to have shrunk, I've only been doing track days with cars. Been itching to ride on track lately.... have to get all new gear $$$$$

    Portland International Raceway. Within a couple hours of here is The Ridge in Shelton, Pacific in the Seattle area and ORP which is in the middle of nowhere Grass Valley Oregon. No club, just HPDE. Also got into autocross last year, absolutely love it. We've (my wife and I, she has a Stage 3 Roush, I have a Roush Trak Pak) done The Shelton airport course and Packwood Wa. Great fun.

    Brainerd and Road America are my two closest here in Minnesota... Brainerd is a track a lot of people don't even know about, 2 tracks 2.5 mile and 3.1 which runs down the dragstrip, wide fast track, only very flat not much elevation change. Performance Driving School is great http://www.birperformance.com/

    The Paul Newman Winning video has a lot of footage of him running on the old Donnybrooke track (BIR)

    Northwood Shelby is the group at RA I run with www.nwshelbyclub.com

    Here in central Massachusetts we have two "local" tracks:

    Thompson Speedway -- the first purpose-built road track in America, recently rebuilt and refreshed. There are quite a few track days here with various organizations, plus events on the 5/8-mile banked oval
    http://www.thompsonspeedway.com/

    Palmer Motorsports Park -- new track that winds its way up and down a big hill, very fun track!
    http://palmermotorsportspark.com/

    SCCA Track Night in America has events at both, which is probably the easiest way to get out on track.

    Why don't you just say, "Ideal situation"?

    MY 'local' track is more than a hundred miles away from San Diego. Sigh.

    lol....at least something is to my advantage.
    Thunder hill is also about 3 hours from me.
    After that, tracks are all down south and 5 or more hours away, so we go to laguna a lot.
