    How much to get started? Empty How much to get started?

    Hello!

    First time posting here, I recently got a new car and I'd love to take it out to some time. I was just wondering what sort of costs would I be looking at?

    -Looks like most events are about $300, give or take
    -I'd need to do a 'driver class' program for another $75
    -I can't tell if I'd need a helmet & flame retardant clothing based on the PDF's on the website? If so, yikes, that doubles the whole cost of getting started, at least.


    Thanks!!

    If you are planning to go wheel to wheel racing, you will need a complete assortment of Nomex gear. For Time Trial, just a helmet meeting the required Snell specification, long pants, long sleeved shirt, and closed shoes will suffice.

    Cool, thanks Smile

    I'd like to just get out there for a few laps around the track.

    Sounds like what you're really interested in is HPDE and NOT TT or Racing (not yet at least).
