If I want to get some surprised/angry looks then I take the ls6 miata out. If I want to drive to the track comfortably with airconditioning and not have my fillings fall out enroute I take the m3. Since I got the m3 I've been daily driving as well as running it at the track.
The ls6 doesn't have abs, it doesn't have anything but it's incredibly fun but much more dangerous. With the m3 I can have lots of fun while without requiring as much concentration - I keep the digital nanny's on. But at the end of the day I have a good time learning on the track.
I started tracking when I had an ariel atom 2 300 and that was even more of a beast. Eventually it depends on driver skill. I've enough time on the track that I can probably outdrive a novice in a nice car with me in a rental.
