    I'm ready to get beat by a Yaris! Again.. When can we sign up for the school? That was probably the best 'motorsport money' I've ever spent.

    I'm going to intend to come out, mark it on the calendar, and then probably sleep in instead. I like the idea of doing it though, and would likely enjoy it..

    But there's a bigger point here. The 1-series is the last car that BMW engineered before the Germans, as a car-making culture, fell out of love with driving.

    I want to give it a shot. I find it looks more intimidating than the track through. Looks easy to get lost

    I think that getting lost is expected at first?

    I'm gonna give it a go this year as well.

    Getting lost is a rite of passage.

    Depends on the course. We have a relatively new guy designing the courses this year, so we'll be giving him guidance to try and make sure that they're not too visually complex. Generally people don't get entirely lost, you're much more likely to miss an element or 3 and then pick the course back up without realizing you missed anything. That happens all the time, to new comers and veterans alike.

    If you do get lost, no big. Just keep heading in the right general direction and try to pick the course back up. If you starting heading in a dangerous direction (towards another car) we'll stop it before you get too close.

    Everyone's really nice and open to chatting too, kinda like a 1morelap event with much less expensive cars.

    Awesome driver development, and cheap to boot. No reason not to come out.

    Autocross is the best driver development you can get short of snow cross. You learn more about vehucle dynamics in Autocross than you do at then track. The years I spent Autocrossing saved my ass several times on track.
