Ok, so I cannot claim to be a track expert, but I'm learning. It's incredible to see what these cars can do on a real road course. I've only been to THREE events at Putnam Park in Mt. Meridian, IN, yet I've learned a lot about my car, and how to drive. I witnessed a 99 miata, almost completely stock with the exception of a stiffer front sway bar, aftermarket shocks and really stick Hoosiers, burn up the track! I watched Kumar (of www.predatormotorsport.com) as he was all over a Z06 Vette's butt just waiting to get around. I was so impressed! He was so much faster than me (even though I'm more powerful). Learning how to drive and how to carry speed through the corners is such and art and such a skill. It's something I'm looking forward to getting into much more someday.
