MotoringFile Sections: Motorsports, Official News Mar 31st, 2015 4 Comments

16C_7526If you want to really drive your car and practice your drifting skills in a safe environment, there’s no better way to do it than on a track. And if you want to perfect the setup, we highly recommend doing it at night. To that extent, Sports Car Club of America (SCCA) launched a brand new program that allows drivers with no prior racing experience to have fun with their rides on a track. It costs only $150 and doesn’t even require drivers to be SCCA members. The program will visit 20 facilities across the U.S., so let us know if any of you decide to participate because we’d love to hear about your experience. More details on the offer after the break. continued →

Join MotoringFile in wishing them and the rest of the team luck as they tackle Sebring this weekend.
