GLA45 AMG on the track?

Just curious if anyone has taken their GLA45 AMG on the track, autocross or any other similar driving event? For those who did, how did it perform? I'm curious to give it a try at the New York Safety Track in upstate NY.

Many videos on YouTube. I haven't timed Pam's GLA vs my 997.2, but I have to believe they are equally matched.

I have a date at the Nürburgring 7-9 June. The racing season is starting and I will be there. I will definitely keep you updated.

That sounds like fun, enjoy! I see your GLA is bit beefier then stock.

I don't, but I'd like to. I hear there is a track in Buttonwillow CA that is good for "newbies" to take classes at. Unlike the two tracks local here are known for being challenging.

Probably never happen, but a guy can dream. Maybe when the kids are a bit older (how often is that phrase uttered....)

I've just got the updated tune from THT Performance. That is typically the only thing that is going to change with the 2020 45s models. I work with a few performance guys here in Stuttgart, Germany (Mercedes Home). They have been talking about this for awhile. You can get to 415 HP to the crank with just tune. Anything above that you are upgrading parts.
