Here are the pics from the HOD event i went to in July. I had a blast at this event. Not being my first time on track and being a little better prepared for the day with drinks and food, i went the entire day out on track and only missed 1 lap. Tom, my coach, even Signed off on me going solo. Driving the car much hardware and faster this time meant my tires will probably need replacing sooner rather than later, but the fun of going into the corners quickly and then pouring on the power on the exit was well worth it. I’ll be going again in October, back to the same track i was at in May. This time i expect to have a bit more fun and try and get some good videos.
Hooked On Driving started innocently enough as a Northern California club racer began inviting friends to the track to try their fun cars out in a controlled environment – away from a racing environment. That was 2001. Today, Hooked On Driving is a full-time enterprise, working hard to offer a robust schedule and mix of driving events – and is headed rapidly toward being a national presence. Why did this growth happen so quickly? We believe that we identified an under-served group of car enthusiasts, and we set about serving it!! The group? Folks with interesting cars, the spectacular sporting cars of today, the fun and quick cars of yesterday, and cars that were built for racing, with owners that are otherwise inclined. All of whom were looking for an opportunity to drive them with a group of like-minded, mature individuals who understand that driving is a blast and can be enjoyed without the risk of racing or getting tickets!
