I haven't been to any track days before but plan on hitting up a few this year. Any suggestions as to which MI tracks are the best? I'm looking for something with some pretty decent turns but more importantly, I want a rather fast track (faster than highway speeds, a straight away that lets me push 100mph). From the research I've done, Waterford Hills is really tight and doesn't let you go very fast. Grattan, Gingerman and Mid-ohio seem pretty good. Anyone driven any of these tracks that could tell me the types of speeds you were pushing?
Here's a schedule of this year's track days in MI for those of you who are interested. (Borrowed from DuckStu at xceedspeed):
"Open Track Days, Driving Schools, Time Trials, etc 2012 !
Ok,.. so track days are beginning to appear on the 2012 schedule. I will post them as they come up. Sometimes actual registrations aren't working until the spring,.....
More track days appear on the calendar every few weeks, some like MIVE and WMHM don't seem to get scheduled until mid-summer.
I'll be updating this list as they come up. So be sure to check back in occasionally.
