Just got done with the Skip Barber course

...and I'm hooked. It was my first time on a track of any sort and thoroughly enjoyed the adrenaline pumping through my veins. I managed to turn in the fastest lap of the day in auto X and Limerock with the Lotus Evora sans driver aids.

I really want to do this more often.

That can become addictive.

I took the 2 day driving course a number of years ago and was hooked. I went back the next year and took it again, Then I took the 3 day racing school (3 times) the 2 day advanced racing school (2 times) the Car Control Clinic (16 times) and started doing laping days in the formula cars. Eventually I joined the Drivers Club at Lime Rock when it was formed in 2008.
