The articles are meant to take someone with no track experience through becoming a fully licensed amateur racing driver; diving into negotiating the multiple sanctioning bodies, rules and paperwork. The series goes into depth on everything that you need to know from what safety gear to select to attending race school and even what to expect during your first event. It's all separated by common questions you like "What might I want to know about learning a new track?"
If you're even curious about becoming an amateur road racing driver this seems like an invaluable series. Conveniently, it even keeps a tally of what everything costs. Head over to Winding Road to check out the sixth part in the ongoing stories; noting that all of the previous entries are linked at the bottom of the page, as well.
