(Dr.) Chin organizes a great track program. I’ve done a couple in Sebring, Florida and they were terrific. For novice drivers, there is an excellent pre-race class. Also, you get a seasoned professional driver who rides along side during your laps. The advice is well worth the cost of the class. Moreover, you get a huge amount of track time for the money. You can “graduate” to Solo, which allows much more autonomy and increased event availability.
Highly recommended. http://www.chinmotorsports.com/
