Maybe I'm looking at this the wrong way, but I see track events as a way to hone my riding abilities in a relatively safe environment. Of course, the plan would be novice classes and my goal wouldn't be to set fast laps, rather my concern is just gaining experience and getting better. Everything I learn there will make me a better and safer street rider. Am I looking at this the wrong way though?
Ultimately the bulk, if not all of my riding would eventually be at the track at some point.
For whatever it's worth I do have track experience in my car.
If you are comfortable at the controls, you will be fine at the track. Most TD organizations have control riders for beginner groups. Usually round robin with classes in between in the morning. Afternoon is less restricted, and usually does not allow inside passing in the corners. Trust me, you will learn more in one track day than in a year at the track. Don't delay.
