Cobrahicks will not want to miss the WHRRI drivers school. It is the best value of any of the SCCA accredited schools and only happens once a year. If the budget for car, tires, gear, repairs is all too much to get started, you could start by buying your gear and seeing about the Fiesta for drivers school. Would stretch your budget through the year a bit.

P.S. for Doug. I am working on the new Fiesta program now. I think you are going to want one. :D

We have a Festiva, not a Fiesta, it is still an excellant racecar and may be available to rent.
I have driven Fiestas in the UK and love them as well but would prefer they brought over the Puma or Ka instead.
Any interest in the Festiva, let me know.

Great Idea.

I'll definitely get all my gear and hopefully a car ready to hit the tracks by school time. I dont want to have to want till next year to hit the track.

I think I'm set on graphics. I didn't crash into anything last year!

Wait, I am thinking about adding something under the door line down the side of the car. I'll send you some photos for you to draw on for concepts.
