    Try googling local tracks You would like to drive. Check out there weekend schedules. This will give You info on local clubs that hold events there. I drive with a couple of different clubs at Willow springs raceway Ca. All were helpful and supportive. I just drive on open trck days. In that way I can drive at my own pace and get better at the art driving. And the rules are usually somewhat relaxed as well as the ambiance. Oh yea and for a one day event, You could get 4 20min. sessions for as little as $125. Thats alot Yahoo! for the buck

    Open track days are awesome and one hell of a lot of fun. BUT, be careful because your car is probably NOT set up to handle the continued stress of a short track. If you run your car hard, the first thing you will notice after about 4 laps is brake fade. Standard DOT III brake fluid has the lowest boiling point of any fluid out there and will cause your brakes to fail if you run your car hard. When you feel them start to fade, take a slower cool-down lap where you use your brakes very little to help get your brakes back before you park and let everything else cool down.

    Also consider what kind of brake pads you have. I run ceramics; although they are great on the street, they are no good for short track. One open week event and I had to replace the pads on all four corners. They literally came apart in pieces.

    If you want to get serious about short tracks, the first upgrades you will need are to your brakes (fluid, pads, brake lines, etc) and engine cooling system. All said and done, it is an awesome time out there...go burn some rubber!
