Brian said it, again. I say it all the time; unless life totally stops you GO to a darned GAME.
What you can learn there makes this site like a cheap kindergarden popup book.
You're new? You are really interested? Find the contacts and games on here and just go.
Sometimes this place looks like a bunch of teenagers drooling over cars when they dont even have a driver's license (or the right to have one). And when the same teens have the chance to go see a race or car show (to learn more), they stay home and read magazines.
This site is FULL of resources that so very few use. It's sad.
