Re: Race Your Own Car! ([email protected])

I might have to try something like this next summer/fall. I don't live far from Summit Point, so I'd really like to do some laps on that track. I've had the chance twice this season but it didn't work out. They often let street cars on the track for around 45minutes during the lunch break at a cost of no more than a $20. The two oddest cars I saw on the track was a stock Geo Metro and a Ford Excursion. I wouldn't want to be on the track ahead of an Excursion on a 10-turn road course known to be hard on brakes! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emsmileo.gif" BORDER="0">

Looks like a boat, but maybe it's fast. One of the fastest cars in my region is a mid '90s Chevy Impala. There also a guy who runs an early '60s Plymouth Barracuda. The best part is that it blows blue smoke the whole way around the course!
