Driver's Skills Day

I spent today accelerating, cornering, spinning, and braking my car and loved every minute of it. At the end of the day, we spent almost 2 hours putting it all together on an autocross course.

If you haven't done it, but thought you might like to, DO IT! The boxster is so easy to control, it makes you look much better than you are. It was worth much more than the $65 it cost me to participate.

Sounds like a great day!

And I agree, if you've never had your car out on a track, DO IT! Its more fun than you could ever imagine. Its not very expensive to get started, you'll be a better driver, and the Boxster is really at home running at 6K rpms!

Love to hear this and wish more people would get out and autocross with their local PCA, SCCA or other car clubs.

I've been autocrossing for over 6 years now and and next month will be dipping my toes into DE Track days (with my BMW tough not the boxster).
