Default Racetrack Information

These are fairly comprehensive lists of race tracks in the US. Each one has a different interface, and some are updated more frequently than others so you'll have to find the one that fits your criteria.

IMO, the best route to get started is to join your local BMW CCA chapter, who often run driving events. Google "BMW CCA <state>" to find who's closest to you. These events are often inexpensive, and require fewer modifications than true trackdays.

If you have a personal experience of a track event in your ti, please respond to this thread and I will link it in this post.

Autobahn Country Club, Joliet, IL
Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course, Lexington, OH
Sebring Raceway, FL

I am omitting autocross events due to the sheer number of threads on this subject. Run a search if you're interested.

Try this link then. There are lots of events with the White Mountain Chapter, Green Mountain Chapter, and Boston Chapter at NHIS. You also are a hop, skip, and a jump away from my favrite track, Le Circuit Tremblant. You wanna talk about pucker factor??? Turns 2-5, Yeah Baby!
