Maybe you can get your racing 'fix' of superbike racing by revving a 7 speed Yamaha R1 in a Dwarf Car!
Best of both worlds...Super fast acceleration and grip on the track, oval or autox. Fully adjustable for any course. Check this site: http://dwarfracing.ca/
Not to sway you away from Autox because that's where you really learn how to drive, although I know individuals that start out and get really discouraged because they 'think' they have the car and 'driving ability' to race, and then have a rude awakening when they come out for their first couple races! They ususlly get discouraged, like a fellow last year at Kal Tire Place coming out with a new BMW Z4, got completely discouraged and left the session after 2 runs!
Again, not to discourage you, but it's the reality of the sport. Ask Bjorn. I invited him to Autox, he has an AMG Benz, has driven Nurburgring, says "Yah! Love to come out to race!" and gets spanked, like all noobies, including me my first couple seasons. But, Bjorn didn't waiver, kept at it, and improved his skills. He now races a Dwarf Car in addition to Autox, and has just officially set the fastest lap record last Fall at Penticton Speedway, including winning several races in his first year!
Anyways, there's no substitution for improving your driving skills at Autox but driving in a 'stock' car because any perks in driving a fast car, or improving suspension, engine, tires etc. doesn't necessarily help you race better until you 'pay your dues', so to speak (with seat time). That's what I did, drive 'stock' and still do. As Angry Turtle mentioned in a post, I race 'stock', not by choice at this point in time, but because that's all I can afford. Sure, I'd love to race a new higher performance vehicle every year or 2, or dedicate a Honda (btw, Honda Rules!
) specifically to Autox and spec it to the limit in it's Class to compete against the other Civics, or track race at Mission, or attend Regional US Nationals, but I don't have that time or extra cash to play the upper game, so just have a 'daily driver' for Autox which is better than NO Autox. Talk to Angry Turtle. He used to race a Toyoto Corolla in 'stock' so he knows where I'm at in the 'stock class' world. And he learned very well in that car, and spanked many of us in that car! Now he spanks us in his Angry Turtle!!
Good luck in your new ride, and enjoy the new experience of Autox. There's a wealth of expertise and help from Brain, See23, Riceracer, Angry Turtle, Autoschmidt, and so many other excellent driving veterans in the Club.
