I purchased a 2015 WRX a few weeks ago and I have just found a local racing club that puts on Autocross events several times a year. I want to put my car on the track so I can get over trying to drive 100 MPH to work and the grocery store but have a few questions first:
1) I'll have around 1600 miles by the time of the next event, is this too soon to drive aggressively on the track?
2) Not that I plan to, but will it damage my car if I smash into one of the cones that make up the "track"? (dumb question, I know! But I've never hit one of those things and don't want to be sad with the outcome if I do...)
3) Anything else I should know? The past events look pretty laid back, you're alone on the course and just timed to place.
