  1. Avoid full open passing groups even though they may be more fun.
  2. I do not use timers since I know they will eventually make me push beyond the limit. I have great fun working on a turn by turn basis not pushing hard all the time.
  3. Spot the hot heads (EASY), give them lots of room and admire their driving prowess.
  4. Use the pit lane to find space.
  5. Prefer weekday events
Some of the best advice I've seen in a long time, particularly with "full open passing" groups. If you are considering doing that go racing with SCCA or NASA.

We ( have insured our track car with WSIB ( for several years now. No claims and hope to keep it that way, but just in case!
