I got started the end of 2011 and raced 4 races in 2012. Great racing and the participants are a solid group of car enthusiasts. ...they don't like Hondas, BMWs, and Miatas very much though. So, my friends and I built a Miata and a ED9 Hatch. Close up of the CTR badge > It is cheap racing...but don't be surprised if your first couple of races don't feel so cheap. Building the car takes time and money. Look at spending about $3000-4000 to get a car prepped for the race. $500 max purchase price for the car and $2500-3500 for safety items (brakes, wheels/tires, fire, roll cage, etc) that are excluded from the $500 budget for the car.
