You can't just say you drag raced the mini without telling us the time...............

Not too many, but I've tried a few:

Autocross

Rallycross

Trackdays

TSD rally, both touring and technical, as a competitor and an event organizer/writer

High-speed all-gravel TSD (stage rally stepping stone)

Drag racing

Drifting

Indoor Karting

Riding dirtbikes (motorsport or recreation?)

I've crewed for Stage rally and endurance road racing

I've been involved in Stage rally as an organizer, stage captain, course marshal, sweep crew, etc.

I'm hoping to add both flat track and motorcycle trackdays to the list this year. smiley

Competitive motorsports:

Bracket racing

SCCA RallyCross

TSD

Non-competitive motorsports:

General drag racing

Autocross

 

A note.  That is not a dig.  I have only entered one SCCA Solo II event, and given that I was the only car in FP, I was not competing with anybody.  All other autocrosses I have entered were free-for-all non scoring, non classed, track day style events.

18-something.

It was at a Friday night event and as I launched down the strip in the dark desert, I realized I had no idea 1) what the finish line looked like and 2) where to go after that. Luckily, there was a faster car (a stock 1996 Miata) in the other lane so I was able to follow him :)

In reply to Keith Tanner :

If you hadn't replied, I was going to chime in from personal experience: "he can't give you a time until he's finished.  Check back next week..."

Probably leave something out but:

  1. Road Rally (same as Claff, with my dad late 70s early 80s)
  2. Go karts, commercial and few years ago won an all day thing with a local legit gokart track, arrive/drive
  3. Autocross
  4. Rallycross
  5. Track days
  6. Drag racing twice (1st time at Challenge 2017)
  7. Slot car racing (as child and adult)

Probably it, unless you count a driving experience at Tank Town USA in GA driving an APC around a mud and water course. wink
