How Do I get into the Racing world

I want in. I was born to be behind the steering wheel of a beast. To take those tight curves, and push the car to the brink, just as it loves to. Im not sure if it takes money, or knowing people, but I was born to race in motorsport.

With an aftermarket SVT Cobra pushing 650 HP, all I can do is street race. Its dangerous to others besides myself.

Best thing to do would be to find your local SCCA or NASA region.  Get started with autocross or a track day.  Start slow, get your feet wet, and meet people.

 

And please, keep it off of the street.  Racing is dangerous enough in a "controlled" track environment.  Racing on the street is basically kinda stupid, and makes those of us who do it properly look like idiots, just by association.
