Auto racing isn’t quite as accessible as, say, running or golf. But thanks to an increasing number of private driving clubs, as well as programs created by professional race tracks, enthusiasts across the country are getting behind the wheel and revving their racecar, track machine or sports car to the redline.
What’s more, these private tracks aren’t solely for the well heeled. Some traditional tracks have a range of programs available that get enthusiasts lapping for just a few hundred dollars. On the other hand, those with bountiful bank accounts can enjoy a full immersive automotive lifestyle at a premier country club track that can even include a custom home and garage. In between is a range of options that can be suited to most any budget and desire.
Not to be overlooked is the social component. Track programs and facilities bring together kindred spirits to share their passions with like-minded aficionados.
Regardless of where you might fall within the spectrum of options, what’s clear is that track owners and developers are fully embracing the need for gearheads and racers to have a place where they can safely and responsibly enjoy high-performance driving, plus the associated lifestyle that comes with it.
