    Sucks that it's in AZ only now. Basically a rich boy's thing now, or if you're local. Normal middle class need not apply.

    Did they try to upsell you? I heard that was happening.

    It's to bad it's in one spot now. The crew that I had in Daytona for the Abarth Experience last year were some of the nicest and most courteous people I have run across for a long time. We had a smaller group so they let us drive the track alot. It was the funnest time in a long time
    I am sure the new place will have customer courtesy also.

    no upsell. I am flying from Houston southwest airlines, Easter weekend, flight about $300 rt, room at days inn, $70 a night and rent a cheap car for $35 a day. Will be so worth it. First day $1000 value is free and 2nd day you can add $499 which I did, they give you your own car for the ride through the area.
    I'm 57 on my 4thAbarth, anyone
    beat that??? 17 Celeste Blu manual, black mirrors, bronze wheels, gone 15 white cabrio, manual of course.Long gone 13 Black manual, loaded, sunroof, red stripes,leather and 12 red, red leather, white stripes, manual. ITSAWGOOD

    That seems like a rather extreme reaction. I can't really speak with any authority on this because I'm a total newb but the guy who's acting as my guide for track days this summer says I should expect $300-$400 of fees to get on the track plus whatever fuel/tires/brakes I run through.

    Paying ~$1000 for a two day driving vacation seems like a good value to me. As an added bonus you get to beat on someone else's car at the track so you don't have to race with the threat of losing the use of your daily and getting slapped with a hefty repair fee hanging over your head.

    So, obviously, free is better, but I would hardly say that it excludes the majority of 500 owners (read: middle class) unless you are saying that track events in general are only for rich kids.

    Just got back form the Bondurant Fiat Experience day in Arizona. Met great bunch of Abarth owners, awesome facility and staff, highly recommended! I wish I could do it few more times.

    As compared to driving about an hour and having it for free. $1000 is not chump change for most of us.

    Yeah, my bad. I was looking at it from the perspective of "out of pocket track day" vs "travel and lodging for a free track day". When compared against spending no money it's obviously a raw deal.

    Of course the definition of "chump change" varies wildly. Personally I'm having a hard time spending the cash on smaller mods that some people would purchase before taking delivery of their car.

    Just meant to offer a meaningful comparison, did not mean to offend anyone. My apologies if I did.

    No offense taken.

    Yeah, I do spend on mods. In my mind, that makes more sense because it's something I can keep, and isn't gone in one day.

    I had a blast at the Abarth experience when they held it at Motorsports Ranch in Houston, run by the SRT group. I would love to be able to do something like that again, but open track days are so rare at the track in Houston that it's usually crowded on those days. 99% of the time it's closed and members only.
