Re: Track Budget
Most places do 20 minutes sessions. So you'll get 20 minutes in the 9 o clock hour, 20 minutes in the 10 o clock hour, etc. So if people fall alot then you lose out on some time. It might not seem like much, but if they run through lunch, you end up getting 160 minutes of track time, riding as hard as you can, which is enough to wear anyone out. 500 is probably in the right range when you're starting up.
If you're looking to go to a track for the first time, and are from southern cali, I would suggest buttonwillow or streets of willow. The big track at willow is really fast and not that technical, its a fun track, but fast lap times just come from not being a wuss in turn 2 and 8. Fontana is a great track, with lots of runoff room, but it normally runs around 300 for a track day. Streets of willow desperately needs to be repaved, but its a nice little technical track and is really fun. Buttonwillow is amazingly fun run counter clockwise and is pretty smooth, its just a farther drive from the LA area than the other tracks.
