I'll consider it when my trackday laptimes would put me mid-pack in a race.

well, if enough of y'all start racing now, your times would be middle of the pack. Me, i am going to stick with TMGP, it is a of a lot of fun racing and it is much cheaper.. i will of course continue to do trackdays on the 600.

You're assuming that the people considering racing aren't already faster than me.



They are.

Don't let that stop you. I've heard this for many, many years from folks, and it's likely to always be roadblock. I've always encouraged folks to just do it. You'll be surprised how much you can learn in that environment versus the track day environment. Besides, how are you gonna catch me if you don't grid up and hammer down?
