to me autox and track are equally fun. But track has more adrenaline rush due to the higher risk and spd and passing. It also needs more driver effort: heel toe downshifting, checking mirrors, heeding course flags, etc.

i really like mission; it's really challenging and the walls on some exits really test your nerve and skill.

PIR is longer and faster but i don't like it any better. It is much friendlier and better paved tho.

yeah track is a lot pricier but it comes w/ lots more seat time, and not having to run for your life after cones =).

$20 for about 5 minutes of track time at an autocross.
$140 for about 80 minutes of track time at a track day.
Do the math

Hard to argue the Math Kelvin, however I think most of the people out auto-xing don't have $180 to spend for one day. For them it is more value to stretch that over a whole season.

I hear ya.
Since I work 1/2 of all weekends I need to get maximum seat time in when I can. Had fun autocrossing for years, now I just prefer track days.

I hope to be the same, I'd like to start tracking this year as the auto-x events are getting a little tired. But I think it is a great way to get into the racing scene without unloading a lot of cash.

Yeah I think for seat time, track days will get you more. But I can't afford more than 2 or 3 weekends of that before I run out of cash.
