    Default How did you get into racing and what was your first experience like?

    What the title says, how did you get into racing around a track? Locally we only have 1 auto cross track and clubs rent it out that you have to be apart of to go around it. Back when I drag raced at our local 1/4 mile you could show up at test and tunes on friday and "run what you brung". All my buddies were into straight lines so it was super easy to show up at the track friday after work, and hit the streets when it closed. Now that im older id like to get into autox but im a little intimidated. For 1 the car id feel most comfortable taking is my 528xi just because it handles well, i can just see my camaro losing the back end and making a fool of myself. This is by no means a fast car so im semi worried ill get laughed off the track. So how did you get started? Any tips on stuff to bring to a track day? What was your first experience like?

    I started Karting then moved on to a SCCA D sports racer and now I'm back to Karts. If you show up to your local track and you feel intimidated your at the wrong place with the wrong people, go auto x what ever car you feel you'll have the most fun with
