This was just too cute to pass up.
How to Race Your Car
One alternative is to do autocross. Many of the race clubs offer this more low key version of racing your car. I did it once a few years ago and did really well. PCA hosts many of these.
I think the best is to find women run track events. There's a different style of teaching and interaction that doesn't involve a bunch of guys scratching themselves or spitting or telling really profane jokes.
Another alternative is to do go-karts. They are much smaller really fast vehicles but it's usually in an open cart, around fairly complicated race tracks, and you're closer to the ground. Two in our area are quite fun, Go-Kart Racer in Burlingame and Speed Ring in Santa Clara. Malibu Grand Prix is ok but you're on your own on the track. The other two are wheel to wheel racing.
Never got the chance to do another tracke event and will probably have to wait a while again for that itch to get a racing type car.
