Yes you can race in as many series as you want but will have to remember to run under the correct race series numbers for the right series..

When I joined outlaw street it seemed like the perfect series for a novice like me with a pretty standard car. But having priced insurance and tax for the car it would cost nearly a grand. :shock: This is just too much for a car that never even goes on the road as I trailer it to every event. (That way if I bend it or blow it I can always get it home) So I was wondering if you run any other series for non street legal near standard cars?

Hi, no sorry Outlaw Street is a full-time occupation as it is, I don't run any other race series, I'm sure some of the members maybe able to advise if there is another series out there that'll suit your car, by the way what car are you running?

Hi I'm running a toyota mr2 rev2 n/a with induction kit and sport exhaust. Otherwise standard just not taxed or insured. P.B. 15.951 @87mph So plenty of room for improvement over this season :oops: Wish you all the best with outlaw street and look forward to seeing at the track some time.

I am confused with your logic...

I am paying nearly the same for my Tax & Insurance as you so either you are under 25 with some abrasions on your licence or you are going to the wrong insurance company? Ok, I'm an old git (52) so that helps a little but I am driving a supercharged & modified, left hand drive car so to most insurance companies I would be classed as high risk (or in Insurance language - EASY MONEY).

Have you tried the specialists like Adrian Flux? Have you asked for agreed value? Have you limited your milage? Have you even put a named driver like a wife or mother as this believe it or not can drop your insurance by a lot, even being in an owners/enthusiasts car club can make a difference.

I do not understand the fear of not driving it to and from the track as you won't get home? I have no trailer and if I was to break something then it would have to be recovered.

At OS-1 we had 2 of the guys brake their toys and they both got home via the recovery services, so I don't see the issue.

I'm not knocking you as I don't know your circumstances, but to be honest, IMO, it's a lame excuse.

So, if you haven't tried some of the things I mentioned, get on that phone and shop around (On the phone - NOT on comparisson sites).

You might ask yourself WHY, WHY Bother, I'll tell you WHY... Because We all want to see you in the series and racing, you'll love the buzz, the banter and occaisionally the glory.

There arn't too many things in life to enjoy for such a small price, you only live once... so DO IT !!! ;)

52..... 52!! Vic seriously I'd never have believed that, with your youthful dress sense and spirit I though you were at least 60 :D

You sure that's not in dog years :) :lol:
