Clemson, you should be able to sign a waiver and take pics without any issues. But it may be a shared event so I would try to see who is actually renting the track...sounds like TMR might be just renting some run sessions from another organizer?

looks like it would still be a fairly nice DD other than a bit more sound...
Its exact copy of the cage in the Gorman Spec Boxster car - just the rear half. Eventually I will turn this into a full on track car and put the front half on.

The seats make it a little interesting to get in and out but once I'm in its fine for short to medium drives. Engine noise is there but no worse than a 914 - it sure hisses a lot, I can hear little motors turning on/off and the shocks working too. My plan is to make the car very simple just like a 914 try to pull as much of the gadgetry out of the car as possible. Get lightweight panels on the car. I found a set of CF doors that take electric windows but they are something close to $2500 a pop! LOL!

The red top has to go as it screams spec miata! I'm thinking of painting it black and then doing flames from the nose back to the front fenders.

TMR is teaming up with PRC/NASA. Porsche only event. pretty sure anyone can spectate and I'm fairly confident that with a waiver anyone can go for rides.

if you are looking for a good body shop for paint work let me know.
I will get you into contact with the guys that painted the Puttputt.

I will be interested to go there and watch (or maybe take some pictures).
As far as I know this event is run by NASA.
That means it's technically a race (as opposed to a "track day") and $10 (or so) should get you a seat on the grandstands.
