Re: Need some help

Whoa young grasshopper.

You must walk before you run.

Have you done trackdays? If so how many and where?
What class you going to run in?
What org are you going with?
Do you have a race licence?
How many credit cards do you have that are not maxed out, yet?

It's amazing how stupid some people can be.

Take an advanced track school.

Take a race school.

Apply for a license w/ a race org. CCS, WERA, whatever.

Fear and Distraction are the enemies of presence, and concentration is the cure.

Re: Need some help

If you are looking at racing....get ready to do alot of traveling. The tracks cannot come to you. Barber is not too far. VIR is not out of the question for travel.

It's amazing how stupid some people can be.
