    Hello,

    Any experience with this driving school? Do I need an invitation to join the VARA's annual racing? I've seen an event shared on the BMW forum, the date is January 18-19, 2020. I'm a student at The University of New Orleans.

        Slip that spam in again and we'll ban you...

        If you're for real, they have a sign up kit. The E30 would be a good car to take for a lot of reasons but youll want to make sure its in good condition mechanically. Where are you located?

        I plan to take my Datsun to it, but Ive planned to take my Datsun to several events over the last 6 months that havent panned out... Im hoping 2020 is the year

          I attended last year, it was a great learning experience with track time as well as class time. You can expect to max your car out on the skid pad, brake test and track rain or shine. It was $425 for two days of instruction with a race car driver in your car every track session.
          An elderly woman sideswiped a tire barrier all the way down the side of her car last year, but not much other carnage than that. Which reminds me, as a qualified drivers school it gets you a discount on your car insurance.

            I did Vara U in 2011, great way to get into racing, and you can't find a cheaper way to do it. Everyone is pretty clean in terms of driving,

            Here is a really bad video of one of my sessions.
