I have an idea. I want to go racing. There are some nearby events that would be a lot of fun to attend, but they involve a crew and more money than I currently have to invest in this. There are the two annual Chump Car events at Road America along with other days where for $300 and tech inspection you can do practice laps. Down in Joliet, IL, they have a 24 Hours of Lemons race. I forget if it's once or twice a year, but it'd be fun to join in and experience it. There's Grid Life over at Gingerman Raceway in South Haven, MI, which although it's not a cheap car ideology, I think my concept of a race car would fit in fine over there. They're a kind of racing and music festival with a good deal of camping going on, and it sounds like fun. I'm pretty sure Chump Car and Lemons also race there. I'm currently unaware of any other road racing within a doable driving distance from home, but I try to keep my ears open just in case. There is, however, plenty of places to autocross, and this intrigues me very much. While this is more of a solo race, I would still be able to let other guys in the team take turns driving it.
|Could be a lot of fun.|
|Look at how light that would be and how quickly that could move.|
|Something like this would only be a starting point.|
|See? They let anything in|
|We want to go racing!|
