I went to my first track day at Blackhawk Raceway in South Beloit,IL. I had a blast. It’s a 2 mile road course with 7 turns. There were over 65 racers in three categories. Advanced, Intermediate, and 2 groups of Novice. You also go through a 40 minute classroom before. As a novice, you are given a instructor who first drives your car with you in it for a couple of laps and then you take over. Sessions are 20 minutes. It’s very well organized and they stayed on schedule most of the day until 1 Guy in the Advanced group spun into the tires. Not a lot of damage. It took about 3 sessions until I got an idea of what I was doing. The car had WAY more b#lls than I did. My car has all season tires, and a supercharger with an automatic transmission. Not exactly a road race setup. I installed Hawk HP+ pads on the front, and they did very well. On the front straightaway, I hit 110mph before going into a almost 90° right hand turn. I had no problems stopping hard and ABS never kicked in. In the last session, I think I did pretty good. Definitely going back next year.
