    I've never raced before... or anything.

    Mods I have are SRI and Exhaust. A-Spec body kit.

    I do have winter tires, not studded though. Should I come even though I have FWD? Or is it more for RWD/AWD?

    absolutely come out, there are 3 different classes, one for AWD, one for RWD, and one for FWD. The body kit might be an issue but that depends how much you care about it lol. Winter tires work ok, studded are better but don't be discouraged just because you don't have studded tires, you will still have an absolute blast.

    There would be some risk of rolling it during the event because of it's size/height and while your on course you have ZERO insurance so I'm not too sure if the event co-ordinator would allow it. Worst they could say is no, sign up, come out to the event and if they say no you can still stay and watch.

    OR

    Get a $500 beater car and then you don't have to worry about anything

    Anyone know just how much time you spend driving/learning? is there a lot of downtime/sitting around/waiting?

    I want to do this, but depends on the above question and need to get a snell helmet tomorrow if its a go.

    $20 - they loan you the helmet and it probably goes until the lights go out

    So no downtime at all? that would be awesome, so long as there is no waiting around for long periods before you can start driving again, that would be great.

    I'm just gonna buy a helmet anyway as I plan to do more of these from now on.

    There is down town. They line up and go one at a time. The next driver usually goes when the first driver is half way around

    You will spend 50% of your time standing out in the field shagging cones. And when you are racing, the other half of the entrants will be out there replacing the cones that you knock over.

    If you want to race, you have to work.
