When people say 'track car,' there's a particular image that comes to mind. High cost, high power, high value European badge. Ferrari Scuderia, Porsche RS, that sort of thing. Is there something better?
Could it be possible that it's better to take a car that's not designed for track use rather than one that is? When we were talking about how motorsports could spice up a boring car, KillerBee verified our speculation.
I autocross with a guy who drives a Toyota Echo.
In my eyes, he wins every event based solely on that fact.
This makes me wonder - what's the most inappropriate vehicle you've ever seen on the track? For instance, above is Jack Baruth of TTAC testing if a rental Camry really is grounded to the ground around an empty Nelson Ledges. Surely you've seen better, though.
