Thumbs down

Are you a track whore? Never been to a track? This is an awesome opportunity if you live in socal.

Cheap, Safe!!! Redline Track Events!

I have no affiliation with them but, would love to meet some fellow Z owners at the track. This is seriously cheap track time, $100 for at least 2 hours of driving time! If you PM me however I can get you in for $90!!! This is through a Miata group I belong to who attends these things often enough to deserve a discount.

Anyway just thought I get this out there! If there is an event or track forum put up a link 'cause this couldn't locate it.

Hope to see you there!

I'd really like to get out to the west coast to try those tracks. Unforunately, the only way I see that happening is if I either (1) move out there (which I'd love to do if somebody has a good paying job available) or (2) I fly out there and somebody lets me "co-drive" their car.

For those of you in SoCal, you have a sports car, take it to the track and use it for what it's designed to do!

I hope you don't mind, the orange was a bit too hard to read, so I changed it to blue

I have run with redlinetrackevents several times. About the cheapest track events available in SoCal. If you are a newbie, you MUST take the driving course for an extra $30. You will get the same amount of track time. Streets of Wilow is a good track for beginners, and drivers with good handling low-hp cars. Frankly, it is my LEAST favorite of all the tracks I have driven in SoCal and N.W. NV. The big track at Willow Springs and Buttonwillow are WAY more fun in a high hp car like a 350Z. Longer straights, but plenty of twisties too.

A very good driver in a Miata will make mince meat out of a relatively new (say 3 - 5 previous HPDE events) in a 350Z at Streets. Let him try that at Big Willow.

Have fun out there.

Understeer is when you hit the wall with the front of the car and oversteer is when you hit the wall with the rear of the car.

Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall, torque is how far you take the wall with you.

2000 Formula Mazda -- race car
1992 NSX -- for street and track
2006 Mitsubishi EVO IX MR -- bone stock daily driver
2002 Jaguar Vanden Plas -- luxo-cruiser
