    Just curious if there are any people who autocross, drag race, attend track days, or race in an actual organized series?

    I was super close to auto-x in Cali with my Sky, but working 3/3 12hr shifts meant my schedule never lined up with weekend events :/

    There is a a track/dragstrip up here and an Auto-X club or two, so who knows...

    Street Touring most likely. There's an event in Tustin on Sunday.

    I race both bikes and cars on sealed circuits. Cars I race in muscle car classes and bikes I race in unlimited bike classes. Just a bit of fun to pass the time when I have spare time.

    Never been able to hit a closed track... just never seemed to be able to carve out the time while working shiftwork in the Air Force.  Sadly, it's only gotten worse since I retired. xD

    It would have been soooo awesome to hit a track day at Sonoma (which was

    Now...?  I can't even drive my Sky (there's a pic of Guen' in my photos) because it would drive me absolutely bonkers in my traffic riddled commute.

    I am retired so have spare time. I do track days during the week and race on weekends when there is an event organised.

    If its something you passionate about do you reckon you could go pro at it? I mean its a nice way to pass time given you have the skills for it.

    I race in two sports clubs in Michigan at M1 Concourse and Waterford Hills. There is a picture of my current car in my profile. Used to race a Honda CBR600RR as well. Fun stuff.

    Been racing for about 20 years, formula cars, endurance racing, club racing, circle track, autocross, drag racing and land speed @ Bonneville. I guess you could say I like race cars.

    Drag races @ track(s) or on the street? [:cool:] 

    And if it was on the street, did that have anything to do with no more vehicle access?  I know some states (Cali) have had to take a really hard line on street racers.  To the point where there are some pretty ridiculous rules on the books regarding after market parts and modifications. [:tired:]
