Great Andre! Burke has a large parking lot you can fit your big trailer if you want to camp. (This is a fun event to camp out at-everyone's campsite is their pit-"town" is about 8 miles away. Most people stay and it makes for great campfire parties.)
Friday evening I'll be giving rookie orentation-so you'll get a first look at the hill. And in the morning we do a "familiarization run". Its a 1/2 speed sighting lap with all the cars running as a group. We run rain or shine-so bring tires for both.
Ask any questions you need to--and be ready to have a whole bunch of fun! 8-)

Proper tire selection== nothing hooks up on moss or wet leaves.
Staying on the racing line==anything paved is considered good.

The way to get the best answer is to contact Don Taylor directly as he is the head of tech for CTTC. His number is on the CTTC web site in the roll cage requirements section at: http://www.climbtotheclouds.com/2014-roll-cage-requirements/ He did tech on your car at Burke and I expect he remembers it well.
