Weather is looking perfect for Friday.  Low in the low 40s, high in the high 60s, and no chance of precipitation.

And VDC on R mode??? Perhaps they felt that it was safer or faster?? Who knows.

More likely this is what Nissan recommended.  Strictly speaking, they tell you to not to run VDC-off even at the track.  Now, most here know whether R-mode or VDC-off produces the best lap is marginally different on a stock car and comes down to how you push it, but from corporate perspective they are likely making a recommendation to run it with factory performance settings which should be R-R-R.

Thanks for the offer Andy, I just spoke with Matt and we decided it was best if I head all the way up to his place Thursday evening. Heard your new "role" in this, can't wait to see it play out. I'm sure Chris will be thrilled as well.

LOL... considering how I fit into the equation, it's almost sad that I no longer have the "Goldzilla Cab" wrap anymore.  :-p

Very excited for you Matt!!!

I've got a question as I'm sure others are curious as well....I'm trying to think of a way to ask it but I'll just be straight up.....what's the back story on your relationship with Nissan and the GTR that makes it so you got the first one and Nissan is doing this event?....You may have mentioned it before but I don't remember seeing it.....thanks

The short version is Matt eats, drinks, sleeps, and poos GT-R.  I remember the first time I met him in 2008.  He was sitting at Fontana Village one early a.m. during ZDayZ waiting on one of the first reveals of the GT-R in the US.  Cannot even remember how he found out about it because it was super secret since Nissan was up in the air on it being able to be there until the last minute.  Only me and one other person on my ZDayZ staff (outside of NNA marketing team) even knew it was coming in.

There will be another one.  The group was small this time, but everyone had fun I think.  That's how these things usually start anyway.  Hopefully next time we can double the turnout at least.

After discussing with a few participants, there seems to be enough interest in doing one of these in the spring (maybe April-ish) and fall (October-ish again).  I'm game if others are.  Also thinking to repeat October in Fontana area, but maybe move around the April location.  If you have suggestions of other good areas in the southeast for an April event, let me know.
