    Get back into the game. I have only been to the track 3 times in the last 6 months, which is an alltime low for me. And even at that, I sucked, being too afraid to push the NSX hard (and it's not set up well at this point), and still not being comfortable to be going really fast in the Formula Mazda.

    I plan to buy someone else's well-sorted race car or track day car soon, and will be getting out to various tracks to have some fun. Looking forward to seeing you guys out there.

    Happy New Year!

    P.S. I'd like to run Circuit of the Americas, or fulfill my long term wish to attend the Jim Russell race school in an open wheel car at Le Circuit Mont Tremblant in Quebec.
