Definitely not! Regardless of how well you do I'm positive that you'll have a blast. Plus there is a bunch of support around the track!

We all started somewhere....... you will also be able to get help from other racers at a larger race, that you will never get running a club race. Most will be running Serpents, but look me up as I have run the gtp, and will be running a DM1.

You'll learn a full seasons worth of lessons in a weekend. From the amount of track time to the experience around you there is no con to making a run at it. Everyone has their first big race and man is it an experience. I will never forget mine

Make sure you find us at the race! There is a good group of us that will all be together that are be more than willing to help you out.

Prep wise: I like to check over everything lol. From bearings to set screws it never hurts to make sure its all in tip top condition. Its a good idea to have a set of tires for the main and another set for practice but its not necessary. Ultimately nothing will make you faster than getting to know the car and track so get out there and practice! Don't worry I'll be up there too!

Not sure about exactly what time you HAVE to be there but being there for a full days of practice is always a good idea.

Well for big races like these, it's a good idea to be there around 7:00 - 8:00 AM.

LAX and Long Beach airport are the two closest. I believe Jet Blue is the only one that flys into long beach.
