It's a pretty cool little track.  Lot's of Indycar teams (Yeah right Tony 
George... Sue me) test there.

I "just" happen to be writing a Advanced driving hand book and a teaching 
outline for events just like this.  I think that this is a a great idea 
and you can definitly count on my help.

There is NO need to ever have a car be wadded into a ball at the track 
like what just happened up at the QCUSA event... With a "instructor" no 
less.  With a event like this under your belt you would have a better 
base of knowledge than 95% of the QCUSA instructors.
