Most fun that I have ever had in one day in my life. I initially thought when I signed up that they would be babysitting people from really turning the cars loose........boy was I wrong. You are solo in the car all day! Unreal, fantastic, wow.
If you haven't gone already, then GO ASAP!
And FYI, I was the only guy there with a jeep......22 Challengers and a Viper. When people were driving the Jeeps they were amazed. I can tell you this, around the track I don't feel that the 300, Charger, NOR the 392 Chally felt as stable and fast.

It was ridiculous how the Jeep ruled the road course.

Yeah that's exactly what I experienced during mine last month. 90% of the attendees didn't even know about the jeep, and 100% of them loved it. Thanks for sharing.

When we attended for the Challenger ticket, I bought the wife a driving ticket so she could drive also. She loved the Jeep so you can see by my signature what happened.....:D

But I have to be honest, although it felt like the Jeep was the fastest on the road course, after reviewing the videos, we were actually going a bit slower in the Jeep than in the cars.

In the autocross, the jeep was quickest. Hands down.

It seemed that the LX/Chally were weak in the corners due to the traction control jumping around.

The jeep just PULLED through the corners!
I wanted so bad to pull my lowered rig out there to hit those corners......

The Jeep did better in autocross but appeared somewhat lethargic on the road course....

I was able to keep up with the pacesetters and would have passed them if I wasn't such a nice guy...

so are we talking 2012 Jeep SRT?

Congrats! This year was my 3rd year doing the SRT TE and every year is a new rush. The first year it was kinda raining on and off and also during the road course, their drivers loved it like that because they get to slide those cars all over and during hot laps they made everyone screen like little girls (not me :D).
This year was nice and sunny and it was once again an incredible experience. Can't wait for next year again.
BTW, nice little SRT duffel bag they gave us at the end of the day.

My first event is scheduled in 11 days. I can't wait.
My co workers can't wait because they are tired of me being excited for it. :D

It was all 2011 CARS AND 2010 JEEP SUVS

I gotta be honest that the Jeep was my favorite. I was fired up to drive the Challenger, but it didn't feel as strong as I had hoped.

When you guys go a 2nd and 3rd time, are you paying $500 per trip?

You can usually buy a voucher from someone who isn't going to use theirs here on the forum or the LX forums. Much cheaper way to go.
By the way, you go to Beaver Run for yours?

Question remains; was it a 2010 or a 2012 Jeep that you drove?
