    Lots of Spa and Bathurst for tracks to race. My vote was Le Mans only because I'd love to do the 24H. But yeah, it would be awesome to race at Spa but if I couldn't race at Le Mans, Bathurst would be my second choice.

    Default Great Thread idea

    Track you would most like to drive, anywhere in the world
    Nurburgring, after much consideration, with Bathurst coming in a close second. LeMans third place.

    Track you would most like to race, anywhere in the world
    Spa, no question.

    Car you would race if you had an unlimited budget
    This one:
    2012_chevrolet_corvettedaytonaprototype2.jpg

    Series you would race in if you could only do one series
    Grand Am Daytona Prototype

    Car you would race on a 100k/yr budget
    Is a Star Mazda doable at that price?

    The Spec Miata pictured at left.

    Crazy project car you would like to build (have built for you) with a 100k budget
    A Super Lite, with a Renesis motor and a sequential gear box.

    Probably, this color, too:
