NJ Superbike racer wants to race 4 wheels
Hey guys, I also posted this in the NE region section but maybe a better fit here?
I've been racing superbikes competitively for the past few years and have been reasonably successful doing it but after ending last season with a 2 month stint in a wheelchair it has pushed me to really consider whether the risks of every race weekend are worth the continued pursuit.
I'm finally back in race shape but being off the track since last Sept has left me really itching for something to fill the void. I'm going to head down to NJMP this month for a track day but I know the only way to kick one addiction is to replace it with another; which brings me here!
I've always loved the punch that the little Elise packs in a street car and with the prices I'm thinking that maybe an older Elise might be the perfect transition car?
Because of racing bikes I'm aware of the ancillary costs and demands that come along with the track so I'm not coming into this blind but I could really use some guidance on this whole 4 wheel thing!
Are there SCCA clases that the Elise works well in? Saw a bunch of racing in Cali, anything east of the Mississippi? Will I even fit in one!? (6'3 34" inseam)
I'm in central/western NJ just off RT 78. Look forward to meeting you guys!
