    MAP Proving Grounds 2K16 - Brainerd, MN

    Dates for MAP 2k16 #1 are June 17th - 19th 2016 (Fri, Sat, Sun)

    Get pumped up kids! 2 months to go. Book it off work! Get your car ready! NO EXCUSES!

    There has been a bigger T-Bay turnout every year. Looking forward to seeing more people out for this event. If you like cars you will have a blast, guaranteed!


    I will be driving to Duluth on Thursday the 16th evening with a few people and staying in Cloquet, MN. Doing the last 2hr drive to MAP in the morning on the 17th to get more Test and Tune runs in.

    Others are welcome to cruise down with us that night if you don't want to get up at 4:30AM and leave from T-Bay on Friday.

    Saturday I will be running the road course again. Which I highly recommend for drivers of all skill levels. No cheaper way to get your car on a real track.

    Camping at the grounds is a free option, or you can get a hotel. Myself and others will be tenting again. Bring your ear plugs!

    I will say this, 90% of the hotels are already booked so if you plan to go your options are limited.

    Hence why I said their options are limited

    I may or may not be coming to the June event, I'm not entirely sure yet, but if I do it'll just be for Friday and Saturday. I'm sure most people won't go down to the September event but I actually prefer it to the June one since it's not as much of a zoo and it's easier to get passes in.

    Every year the hotels are booked 3 months out, i just booked a place on expedia that is 8km from the track for 100 a night, but i also called super8 and left them my contact info for any cancellations which there are always a ton of. Last year i did the same thing...they called me a month out and offered me two rooms.

    I have an extra room at Baymont Inn and Suites for the Friday and Saturday if anyone wants it. US$183 per night plus whatever fees they charge you when you check in. I can cancel for free up until June 15.

    I do think some people have families and bills to look after.

    Hey, I'd chip in $20 or pay for a hotel room if that would help a fellow enthusiast but I don't think I'd be able to pay for a full windshield. How bad is the crack again? I know you mentioned having a crack before but is it like across the whole windshield or just a small crack?

    I'm pretty sure I have those too.

    Did I do or say something wrong? Everyone seems a little hostile or am I just interpreting it the wrong way?

    It's on the bottom right side if you're looking from the inside of the car, about 2.5-3" and doesn't impede vision. You don't even really see it unless you actually look for it, hence my hesitancy to get it fixed this year.
