Hi All,
I am a possible new member, and I definately want to come and experience an event. I have read through the entire website and it looks really great! I am an older enthusiast in my mid 30's with shifter cart racing experience and years of sim racing but do not like to race the public roads. We all know what can happen there. I drive a slightly modded (for now) '05 Stone White SRT4 and would love to have a safe and controlled place to see how it can cut the twisties. Chin Motorsport looks like a fantastic way to accomplish this. How have you current members enjoyed CMS? How does it compare to other track groups? Can CMS really give you that much track time? Any comments about CMS and comments about your experiences would be greatly appreciated. I look forward to seeing some of you at a meet soon.

I have been doing Chin Motorsports events since around 1999, when they first started doing events at Sebring. It's always been a complete pleasure. They run the events very efficiently and safety is always a priority. After getting started with Chin Motorsports, I went on to get my SCCA license and have been racing Spec Miata on and off since 2001. It's a great way to get a taste for the sport and then you can get as serious about it as you want. I still do events with CMS whenever I need to knock off the cobwebs and get some extra practice in.

Thanks for the input. I have been a motorsport lover of almost all classes since I was a child, and CMS sounds great! It gives more safety conscience drivers a place to run hard without worrying about killing yourself or worse someone else. I too want to achieve my SCCA lisence in a showroom class and compete on a higher level, especially, now that I'm older and can afford it. I look forward to seeing you at a future CMS event.

You may already be aware, but observers are welcomed at our events. We'll be at Sebring Sat/Sun this weekend. There is no admission charge to visit the track. You can register as a passenger ($20/day) and get hot-lap rides with advanced drivers.

some of our senior members would be very amused to know that someone in their 30's is an older enthusiast! CMS has some very experienced drivers in their 70's!

The first Chin event I attended at VIR was about my 4th HPDE event. You can be sure that no group that I'm aware of provides more track time. The open track format gives them the edge, but may also be somewhat intimidating for a new driver.

Regardless, I've never felt unsafe or uncomfortable at one of their events and I'm glad one of my early instructors recommended them.

Welcome to the addiction!
As for your wife and kids - can you say pit crew?

I am very new to Chin Motor Sports, and am looking forward to being an "observer" at the Sebring event. If I wanted to sign up for riding with an experienced driver for some hot laps, would I need to bring a helmet?

Getting a passenger ride with an advanced driver is a great way to get introduced to the hobby, and the legendary road course at Sebring. Helmets are definitely required. Rental helmets are available at the track.

I'm new here to Chin and I'm looking forward to having a lot of fun with all of you on and off the track. I joined because this is the best chance I'll ever get to put my car out on a track where it is in a controlled and safe environment to be able to see what it can do. I don't want to ruin my hard work by wrecking it. I have a HEAVILY MODIFIED 95 Dodge Neon. Yeah, I know, not the best. But you do what you can with what you got. With a little bit of time and practice behind the wheel on the track. You just might catch me in your rear view.

Welcome, Sabin... We look forward to seeing you and your Neon on the track. The Neon has been tracked widely over the years... from the early spec-Neon category in SCCA years ago, to late model heavily prepared SRT-4 Neons in World Challenge competition. When well driven, it is a very capable FWD track car.

Drive Well, The management

I have personally found that out on the street, but there's too much risk to take on the street...It will be a lot more fun on the track.
