I would definitely avoid a Sonoma date in February - high chance of rain and cold weather, and the upper part of the track is extremely slick in either of those conditions.... that along with a high cost of entry and you've got a high risk of an unpleasant outcome.

Last year I went there in April - it was cold and wet, and I am not exaggerating to say there were 10 crashes in a total of something like 6 laps across the two run groups between turns 2 and the carousel even though people were crawling through.

You went to thunderhill in April last year? Hopefully it won't be like that, but it's been a crazy wet/cold winter here. Need the rain though, so can't bitch about it too much.

I was talking about Sonoma.....

Thunderhill is a much safer track IMO - lots of runoff everywhere and excellent asphalt (except a new patch they did last year at the apex of turn 8 with a pretty bad bump - hopefully fixed this off-season)
