Thanks,
Driver Education, short for High Performance Driver Education, or more simply put, lapping days on a road course.

I fall into that category. Going to Barber Motorsports Park this weekend in my Vette, but I have a friend coming with, and I think I may have him drive the Z instead of his car and see if I can't take it out for a session fairly stock to see how it does.

looks like we need to add more forms of racing to the survey... including ones above and time trial and wheel-wheel racing

so, havasu... I'm still kinda new to arizona... wassup with all the sandcars ? i was driving back from vegas recently and there were literally legions of them being trailered up and down the highway... must be really big here huh ? is there a definitive website where I can look into it ? and also, why do so many of them look like golfcarts!?

I am planning on finally doing some trackdays again next year, most likely at Autobahn Country Club or Blackhawk Farms. It's about time, the last trackday I did was in 2006 at the Zandvoort circuit.
