Scott Smith is an instructor for the NEQ- if you want to see his car, 
come to one of the driver ed events; "spectators" are always welcome, 
as far as I know.  You will need to sign, at the least, the track's 
waiver.  You should probably stop by the registration trailer and say 
hello to Claire Earley(and Revvy, the Earley's super-friendly 
retriever).  Charity rides w/instructors(ie, instrutor driving in 
their car) are available but there are some conditions.  You cannot 
get a ride from anyone but an instructor.

You'll also see(usually) Felix Tang's 'S2' rally car, the Haymann 
brother's 90tq rally car...a heavily modified 20vt UrQ...white, I 
forgot who owns it, I think he's at least on the UrQ list- he lives 
out in CA but occasionally comes to our least one other 
UrQ, owned by a board member...all sorts of other misc stuff like 
Z06's, WRX STi's, 200q20v's/V8's/S-cars, good assortment of 
BMWs...TT's, minis, usually at least 2-3 Porsche racer cars including 
a GT3 cup car(or two) one point with had a winston cup NASCAR 
truck(don't think he comes anymore, club rules require DOT tires, 
which NASCAR doesn't use :-)....I think there were two RS6's at the 
last watkins glen event...all sorts of fun stuff.
