Default 1st Track day!

Went out to Chuckwalla Raceway on Sunday with a few friends for my first track day. Had a blast. Can't wait to get out again. Here are a couple videos.

Dude! You took a hit from the track pipe and now you are hooked.

I am not sure whether I should congratulate you or send my condolences....

In all seriousness, congratulations. It is a totally addictive sport and rewarding experience learning how to drive our cars to the limit. From your video it looks like you are doing well. You will learn so much with every new outing and become so much improved in your driving. Anything you can or have done on the street will pale to what you can experience on the totally unrestrained environment of a real race track.
