This was not an SCCA event... like my previous event at Laguna Seca this was a Miata Club event. Probably 25 Miatas (many souped up), a 1st Gen RX-7, a Twin-Turbo RX-7, a Turbo MR-2, a Boxster and an e34 M5 showed up.
Unlike Thunderhill and Laguna Seca, Sears Point has a lot of walls. There are very few runoffs, so if you screwup badly the odds are high you might hit a wall. With that said, there were 3 spinouts that did not result in any damage to participants.
My suggestion to you is to try Laguna Seca first and then Sears Point. As long as you drive in the 6/10's realm you will have a fun low stress day. These are world class tracks and should be seen at least once from the tarmac!
: Thanks for the write up. I did Thunderhill back in november and had a blast. Was the day at Sears point organized by SCCA? Also, I remember hearing that Sears point has a lot of walls; is this true, and is there a danger of hitting a wall if you lose it somewhere? The nice thing about Thunderhill is that there are no walls except on the straight..
