I went a couple weeks ago. It was a blast! The instructors are great. There is a little bit of classroom time but most of the time is in the cars doing: -- full anti-lock stops -- fast lane change -- skid recovery -- slalom -- heal-and-toe downshifting -- autocross and wet-dry autocross At the start of the class you get a timed run on the autocross then there is an autocross competition at the end of the class to see how times have improved. Everyone in the class had a great time. There were three people who brought an extra family member. I think they had to pay $1350 to do that. When we had dinner with the Saab excecutives they said that only 25%-30% of Viggen owners take the class. Matt.
