I found what may be a fast track to authentic racing, beyond the amateur club racing enthusiast’s level!
One of the social networking sites I lurk in is classic car insurance href=”http://linkedin.com” target=”_blank”>LinkedIn (it’s like social networking for business). I am a member of a racing enthusiast group (within LinkedIn) called NASA Pro Racing.
An individual named Mike Branan, of that group, recently put out a “Ever wanted to get behind the wheel of a GT or LMP?” solicitation. Here’s that posting content:

WOW & Hmmm! Do you happen to have an FIA license and some spare cash? If so, subscribe to LinkedIn, join the NASA Pro Racing group, look for Mike through LinkedIn & get ready to go REAL racing.
Interesting they would offer such an opportunity to an individual they don’t know…
Racing Ready is really curious about this -I had NO idea that racing rides were for sale like this!
