Are You Serious. Why You Don't Need To Pay To Race Your Car. Why Why? Just Go Out And Have Fun. If Some Idiot Wants To Try To Beat You Then Go For It Race Him. You Already Pay Money For Mods/ Gas/damagedparts, Which Increase While Racing.

i would personally never track my daily driver. for many reasons.

but, if you want to do some occasional track driving and dont want to invest very much i would join a club like SCCA. or you can join a subaru club and do the occasional track day.

if you want to actually get a little serious, and actually want to be competitive and put down quick constant lap times you need to take a class and get some professional instruction. there are far to many facets of race car driving you simply can not teach yourself.

Holy cow - one guy uses no caps, one guy uses them when they aren't necessary! I'm getting a headache reading this thread

Here's where you need to go:
http://www.nasarockymountain.com

SCCA costs a lot and is more for people looking to jump into racing with a big budget. NASA is better for those just getting started and only wanting to race occasionally. They help you learn as you go without having to attend an expensive race school before you can start competing. You start out with an instructor on track and move your way up into the faster groups at your own pace, then you get your racing license when you're ready. Let me know if you have any questions, as I help out NASA here in the Rocky Mountain region.

no offense but NASA races can be scary. they will let anyone out of the track.

Maybe it depends on the region. Out here they're extremely safe as far as racing goes. I know in Norcal the events are pretty packed. But I had never heard much about unsafe situations when I was out there.

well its the race as a whole that is a questionable. maybe it is because there are so many more attendees out here that it makes it different. but i see lots of car contact in the few nasa races i have seen.
