As I'm sure others agree ...it is well worth the wait!
I went in 2016 and again in March 2019 and it was just as great the 2nd time!

It isn't going to be 'warm'. It is going to be HOT! About 100 both days. Dress comfortably and drink lots of fluids. They'll give you a nice water bottle that fits into the C7 cup holders.

Yeah they'll give you a head sock and a helmet to wear for the 2 days.
I'll just give you my novice experience since I had never tracked a car at all. Only thing I have ever done is race some go karts around a local place (SpeedZone).
The first day when you are on the track it will be fairly docile. You will be learning what the car can do but its all gonna depend on your comfort level. Day 2 started with a couple sessions gradually building speed. I still wasn't sure what the car could do but I gradually increased speed all while trying to learn the nuances of braking and hitting the apexes correctly. Now, when you go for your ride with an instructor mid day that's when the light bulb will go off and you'll realize you have been babying your car around the track! Make sure to listen to what they are telling you and ask for tips on corners you are having trouble with. After that ride around the track with her my lap times and execution of certain corners greatly improved in the afternoon sessions and I was less intimidated by the speed. Its absolutely amazing what these cars can handle and do. Such a blast!!

I wasn't going to go and then Mike Furman talked me in to it. So glad he did! Thinking about going back after I take delivery of my Z06. Has to be a completely different experience with 650 horsepower.
