I second this.. Never raced a day in my life but I'd love to watch and eventually learn.

Here's the link to the Oklahoma Region SCCA's website. Looks like their next event is on May 4th.

The only way to learn is get out there and do it! See if you can get someone to ride with you on your first time out, it helps a lot.

Thanks maxfactr! I managed to find a rulebook and read exactly what you've mentioned. I also wouldn't mind riding along with somebody else. Get a feel for how they do it and the techniques used.

As one of my first instructors so eloquently explained to me, "You go real fast, and don't hit the cones." :) Seriously, though, riding with someone will help, having them ride with you will help even more! See if there'd be someone willing to mentor you for an event or two.

That definitely sounds ideal! I like the idea of critique as I drive. Thanks xorpheous!
