Page 2: Variety of Cars

There was a wide variety of cars that participated in the event, including both Hondas and non-Hondas. Some of the vehicles included Integras, Civics, Corvettes, Preludes, Miatas, Accords, NSXs, a pair of 360 Modenas, a pair of '01 911 Turbos, a couple of 911 Carerras, and the largest gathering of S2000s on a track ever recorded with over 40 entrants.

There was a variety of cars at the event.

The event configuration was (2) 25 minute sessions per group before lunch, and then (2) 25 minute sessions per group after lunch. I put about 200 miles of track time on my car! The time in between sessions was good for relaxing, discussing different track aspects with fellow drivers in your group, making adjustments or changes to your car's setup, and checking out some of the other cars on the track. The event is limited in its number of entries, which means there is much less of a chance at being stuck behind someone who happens to be slower than you on the track. Both the drivers and instructors do a good job of making sure no one is held up behind a slower driver. A free BBQ on Saturday night with a band and drinks was a nice time to socialize with everyone and wind-down from the first day of events.

People lining up to go out on the track.

Most of the cars were hitting well over 110 mph down the front straight. TWS is a great place to legally and safely drive in the triple digits.
