Default 30K In the bank, dream race roadtrip/year off.

I am thinking of taking a year off, and being a track rat. I live in Canada, am recently seperated, and thinking that I will only have the chance to do this once. It feels like now of NEVER.

Where would you have to go?
What tracks/races would you have to attend?
Let the ideas flow here guys.

Tell me what you would do if this was your money/year off.

Thanks guys

I would hit up Score in Savannah.GA for one of the large races. Socal would be my 2nd stop(month) and my final trek would be YATABE arena in Japan. I would use the oppurtunity to see the East and west coast as well as over seas.

Your missing out on one of the biggest (And funnest) race of the year now. You should of been flying out yesterday to AZ for the Nitro Challenge race.

http://www.neobuggy.net/modules/news...p?storyid=5662

And then head over to SoCal for a few months. There's a big race about every weekend there in the Spring and Summer. Plus all the mid week pratcies that draw 50-75 racers a night. I see you race an 808, and SoCal has a strong following there too. Would be a great area to get help (If needed) from some top racers.

I agree.. I'd keep club racing and invest 30k into something more useful. In today economy there is a lot of money to be made in the market.
