Post Welcome to Texas - Road Course / Auto-X Track starter kit

From an email I put together for a friend coming to Texas, I thought it would help fellow driving enthusiasts with an itch to get their car on the track where it belongs!

Some of the clubs in Texas to drive with, on their websites you will often find the information about the local tracks. Some just do HPDEs at this time (fun track days, no time trials, coaching/instruction) --

NASA: http://www.nasatx.com/ (HPDE/TimeTrial/Races)

For two auto-x clubs check out: http://www.autocross.com/er/equiperap...
http://www.dfwautocross.com

There is also a lot of PCA and BMWCA and of course SCCA stuff in our area...

Here are the tracks, many have their own "drivers days" also, check out their websites or call them for opportunities to drive their tracks:

That will get you started, hope that helps!! Welcome to Texas!


For a preview of some of the tracks I have my own videos posted. I find spins and whoopsie's interesting so I collect those but I do have some regular fast lap videos as well if interested:

Aggie113 - every time I see a super car or some hot modified car at the track I think to myself, "they/we will all end up in a Miata one day" hahah

There have been some updates since I created that original email above...

Eagle's Canyon (ECR) - Decatur, Texas -
They finally totally re-poured the entire track and the full track (now 2.7mi vs the original 2.5mi) reopened. I was there first on 11/24/19 for four 15min HPDE sessions - a lot to learn with this new config. Do not assume the section that is still like the old config is 100% unchanged!

Wow, I love the track. Way better then when I drove it last in 2012 when it was already falling apart. Back then they tried to fix it but concrete was coming up so bad in chunks that it would have totaled my car. Now the track is glass smooth and beautiful again and I like the new config much better than the original one. Everyone needs to get out there and get some rubber down on the track to increase its grip! This track deserves a re-visit if you have not been there after the Nov 2019 reopening. Keep safe out there!

Harris Hill Road (H2R) - San Marcos, Texas -
Has now also been TOTALLY resurfaced! I have yet to revisit but I thought it was a fun track but the back straight was horribly bumpy. Not anymore! I look forward to going back.

I did not mention previously but for historical reasons wanted to note that I am sad to say that TWS has closed permanently and rumored Bluebonnet will not be built.
