Jim, thank you for your reply and info. Perception does not always equal reality, but I wanted to add my non-rr experienced perspective for the purposes of this topic. Like I said, I’ve been interested in trying road racing at some point, but those are some of the things that have held me back.
Understandable about Laguna Seca being more expensive than Thunderhill. I’ve experienced that when I’ve done track days with my dad in his car. Great to know, too, that there’s a first-timer introductory price. Thank you for telling me that. Is that anywhere on the NCK website? If it is, I cannot easily find it, which would pose a problem for prospective new road racers. I was only able to find out the Laguna Seca pricing based on going through the initial steps of the registration process.
