When you start tracking you realize that everyone in the beginning and intermediate group came with their daily driver, which they bought new, thinking it would be a good track car. Meanwhile the guys in the advanced group have a 10-15 year old modded sports car they don't care about.
I get what you're saying. Thats why I bought an older out of warranty 335. I probably should have bought another C5 Z06 but I wanted something with a back seat this time.

And they will continue to be rookies if they don't learn to drive.
