Hey Opal, Congrats on the new car. I have not made it to the track yet, but plan to soon. I live right down 121 from you, hope to see you out and about some time.

Any been to Driver's Edge? I'm thinking about heading to Motorsports Ranch or TWS this Sept. or Oct. on their driver's ed.

When you guys say 'track' do you mean 1/4 mile or an actual :p track with turns and stuff? Because I have seen a lot of 1/4 miles around where I live but I never knew any actual tracks existed in Texas. Are there many? And where are they located?
I'd love to turn my STi loose! (and probably lose to a bunch of Miatas :lol: !)

I know in Houston, the local SCCA club does some track time at the HPD training course. Up here in Dallas, the only track I have found is out in Mineral Wells. The S2000 crew go out there ocasionally. I need to talk to my dealer, he races Pro Solo and should know of some local events.

In Dallas there's Texas Motor Speedway and Motorsports Ranch...
I haven't been to either but my buddy who's moving in with me says that for $40 you can run on Motorsports Ranch all day. Texas Motor Speedway is a giant oval so you can test out your top end speed :p .
In College Station there's a track called Texas World Speedway. It is an oval with a road course in the middle. I've been to this one 4 times with the Driver's Edge. The road course is 2.9 miles of turns. And on the front straight, I got my 99 Civic Si up to 105 mph. This was a bone stock Si with only ZR rated tires. WOW. Can't wait to go there with the STi.

I have been to Motorsport Ranch twice (once with The Drivers Edge and once with a friend who has a membership there--in the rain). It is well worth going to--especially Rick's Drivers Edge events. I am signed up for the September 6/7 event and will be in my new STi if it get here/is broken in by then or my Comptech Acura. The Drivers Edge will teach you so much about driving at the limit--I highly recommend it.
