Anyone contemplating this? It's more expensive than a regular track day, but for 495.00 you are getting only 2 run groups all day. (15 cars per run group). I'm going back and forth about it, but it sounds like a good time. September 17th, 2008 @ Thunderhill Raceway in Willows, CA.
..:: Hooked On Driving ::..Sports & Exotics is a special track event that was created based on customer input from those who would like a bit more time and space on the track. With only 2 run groups of 15 cars each, this event almost always gets reviews like, "The best time I've ever had at the track!"
A full breakfast and lunch is served, meetings are held to a minimum, coaches are available as needed, and everyone gets so much track time that most end up pooping out before the end of the day. The two run groups are loosely defined as "Race-Prepped" cars – with racing safety gear, running with mandatory point-by passing – and – Exotics (we have a non-snooty image of what exotics are) cars driven by mature adults who are looking for lots of practice on an uncluttered track, without lots of external disturbances. There are no "de-brief" meetings, as most drivers in need of coaching are served on an individual basis. Bottom line: Sports & Exotics is for those drivers who are looking for TONS of track time (3.5 hours!), and an intimate, semi-private feel to the day on track, and camaraderie with other autophiles like themselves
