BenSlocum Always found tracks boring. I've played around a bit off road with a 2002 SVT, not quite ready to move my new one on to gravel yet.

Auto cross would be a dream around here, so we make the best out of straight line racing and sunday night cruise.
Back in the day(giving away my age here) there was a road around here where the start/finish line was painted in 3ft letters right on the road for years.I was to still to young to drive but I remember asking my dad about it...the only constant is change I guess.

IMO, driving a slow car in a straight line is boring whereas driving almost any car at the limit of adhesion can be quite exciting.

Not everyone can afford the fancy race car or to dump mass amounts of money into the engine.
Theres a reason why older people hate teenagers who drive. We have to much fun, drivings not a chore its excitment.
