Track Night in America

I decided to bite the bullet and sign up for the August 13th event at Thunderhill. It’s been almost 5 or 6 years since I’ve been on the track and I thought that this would be a great opportunity to go.

It is a little difficult going on a Thursday, but I was able to get the day off to do so. My schedule has been a little hectic, and I decided that this event would be a good way for me to do something I want to do instead of something I need to do. I’ve heard that events at Thunderhill was a little thin, so even more so to do it. Should be a lot of fun.

There’s a lot of good things going for Track Night in America. I like that it is an afternoon/evening event. I also like that it is a half day deal instead of a whole day experience. The cost is very convenient as well. I might get better value with a whole day event, but it is still $175, where as a half day event, even though a  little more than half the price, isn’t as big of a drop in the bucket.

Like I mentioned in previous entries, I am planning to take the Impreza to Thunderhill. The car has some new(er) tires on it, and was recently aligned by Auto Innovations. Just need to check a few things and it should be ready to go.

I think the idea is an awesome one. It’s such a shame that Thunderhill is so far away. However, I think there are a lot of regions what will really benefit from this program. I think this is also a great gateway into motorsports. People can certainly choose to stay casual with this non-competitive environment, but for those who want to be competitive, this is a great way to get their foot through the door.

And in regards to the age old question: “track or autocross?” Check this link out. Makes sense to me!
