I started the beginning of my track days one year ago. It has become some what of an addiction, so be prepared for the inevitable track bug. I started with the PCA and they put on some great events that are run safely and they teach you what you need to know to enjoy your car while minimizing the risks. If you are worried about damage, there is track insurance available through the PCA. I think the best news is the Porsche warranty will handle non-crash related mechanical problems, further demonstating that these cars are meant to be driven on the track...don't try that with a GT-R! With the PCA, all you need is a proper helmet, get your car tech inspected for about $100, pay your entry fee and off you go to the event. It seems involved the first couple of times but if you ask some of the people at the event, they are always helpful to tell you where tech and the classrooms are. I hope to get to Lime Rock one day. Maybe we'll see you there. For now I have to slum it at Sebring.
