Makes sense. I just look at $150 + fees are my expenses for the day.If you’re cool with possibly writing off the entire car, then don’t get track insurance. If you push yourself or explore your limits at all on the track, you’re going to have some offs. And even if you take it easy, others will be going balls out. And those incidents will probably need insurance.
that said, in my observation, serious crashes are pretty rare (spins are very common but as long as there are runoffs and no aggressive bunching no metal gets bent). So that’s why some people just roll the dice, I guess
You have to have to start somewhere . To be honest, it's intimidating doing something like this for the first time (especially at my age). The event I did early this month was a "Gray Day". All participants were 50+ (I just made the cut). It was a blast. Very welcoming to a new guy like me. I was one of a few with little or no experience but I got some great instruction, really enjoyed pushing my car and met a nice bunch of guys.Enter at your own risk.
If you crash into someone else's car, your character is going to be tested real quick. Not to sound like a douche, but I prefer to avoid track days filled with kids and their Civics, because the reality is the majority of them will have no means to make me whole, should they cause a wreck and damage my car.
This is why I am very selective about the track day organizers I will run with, as well as why I will always run with the advanced group (despite my skill level placing me in the higher end of intermediate). The worst thing you can ever do is run in a beginner group, because the people in those groups are more likely to do stupid shit due to their inexperience/lack of situational awareness.
At the end of the day, there's no prize for first place and the guys I usually go with don't even care to time their laps because once you start chasing lap times, that's when you start to over drive and mistakes can and will happen.
Does your hate on Jeep stem from them and other American car brands kicking German ass in WWII, because if so I totally get it. It’s like a rival thing; Rangers/Devils, Yankees/Red Sox, Giants/Cowboys, Ford/FerrariWorse than just "Jeep," a Chrysler product. Wait for two years post introduction and they'll be in the used market for 50k.
