Track days in Norcal/Bay Area?

Anyone here go to track days in the Norcal area? I did a quick search on this forum and it looks like mostly SoCal folks.

I used to go with TEAM Racing (they mostly had events at Thunderhill) but they've since dissolved.

Thanks, will check them out. would be good to see at least another F30 to run with.

In your opinion, how many cars did they usually have per run group? One thing I liked about TEAM were the smaller run group sizes.

I have an F30 but I track a prepped E36 M3 Sorry. I will track my F30 once with my KW suspension once it's installed but that's just for curiosity.

NASA has a lot of cars on track. All others are good about keeping cars to a minimum.

Always a good idea but I don't since my E36 is a dedicated track car. When I was tracking my 335 I had State Farm, which covered me at that time. They have since changed their Exclusion Policy and no longer cover a car on any race track surface.

Prior to getting the State Farm insurance, I did track my 335 for 2 years without coverage when I was on the track.

You should call your agent and ask if their policies cover on the track. If they do then you just have to watch for any changes in their exclusion policy, which they are supposed to send you whenever they make changes.

Other than that, you can get track day insurance. You can check this for rates and programs: http://hpdeins.locktonaffinity.com/Default.aspx.
