The best track events are the ones in YOUR car, regardless of it's capability, as that will teach you about it's limits in a safe environment.
The heavy / huge thing only means you need to factor in the cost of a set of front tires and a set of front brake pads more often depending on how often you track.
Remember, track is crack!
