Started this great hobby attending an HPDE event August 2019 at Atlanta Motorsports Park - what a blast. I've completed 11 events / 21 track days so far - all in the Southeast. I plan to drive 5-7 events / year, and add one new track each year. After safety items, the most important mod is driver seat time.
