Immediately after the NOPI Ohio World Finals, GM Racing will be hosting a two-day seminar October 17-18 at the Roush Industries facility in Livonia, Michigan. If you can attend, you'll get up close and personal with the powertrains used in the GM Racing team's Cobalt drag cars, and learn about transmissions, chassis setup, wind tunnel results and race prep from the guys who run the first Pro FWD car to break the 200 mph barrier.
For 2006, GM sport-compact drag racing Program Manager Carmen Smith is on record as stating that GM will be moving to a support-only role - no factory team. So this seminar should be a no-secrets effort to transfer their knowledge to the independent racer.

Sounds like the instructors are, um, well qualified. The seminar is nearly full, so act quickly if you're interested. I couldn't find contact info for the seminar, but you might start with either Jeff Romack (317.843.5447) or Kirk Weeks (317.843.5443) at GM Racing. If you attend, let us know how it goes.
