    I've already had my Abarth out on Summit Point Raceway this year!! My son has a modified Subaru Forester that he runs...it makes for super fun days either at the track or on a local Auto-X track once a month. We have 3-4 more visits to Summit Point scheduled for this year along with about the same number of Auto-X days. He is the one who got me hooked on this stuff and caused me to go out and buy my Abarth! We love it!!

    Scooby,
    I only taught it once, but it was a lot of fun and forced me to really think about my driving and how to talk to a young driver. I'd done some novice instruction with autocross, and I think the fun of any coaching is knowing that a first timer is going to drop plenty of seconds off their time, besides learning some new skills. My Street Survivor student had only been driving a few months, so I know they learned a lot by going through the exercises, which I think should be taught to all drivers. Among other things, they learned what the parking brake was, they honestly didn't know what it was before!

    It was THEIR version of "auto-cross"...where we were basically running about half the track as the course (no cones) for time. Then in the afternoon, we covered the other half of the track, so during the course of the day, we got to run the whole track at some point. I like these types of events because you get to run on the racetracks without any real restrictions and you're by yourself (just against the clock) so you don't have TOO much to worry about with tearing up your car. I guess this is very similar to time trials..??

    That sounds like fun. Yes, time trials are just you against the clock, although that would be with multiple cars on track the way most groups run it. I've done autocross on a track but they also had cones out, which is probably a good idea to keep the speeds a bit slower, (and I still overdid it and went off track on my final run!). Come to think of it, any time spent on track is great fun! Last year I did another HPDE in the Abarth and enjoyed it, and then did a Lemons race in an old Altima, both were too much fun.

    I completely agree...ANY time spent on a track with these cars is great fun!! I've got a local auto-x tomorrow that I'm looking forward to!

    Indycar racing at the Austin F1 circuit tomorrow (Mar 24). Disappointing qualifying from Hinchcliff, on a track I figured hed do well on. But the Swedish rookie was on fire. Turn one should be good....

    Hi Robert,

    I’m planning on attending my first AutoX at the Nassau Coliseum in early July. Keep me posted on track day plans, I’d consider a ride to Lime Rock as long as I upgrade my brake pads, fluids and lines. Oh, and your Abarth’s front struts are holding up well on my car, they made for a great ride at FOTD this year!
