I would love to get into something like this someday if I ever have the money. It has been a dream my whole life to road race.

Thanks for the simplification!

*I don't get why they request the air bags to be removed.*

That's why its outdated. They make you take out the airbags so that if you bump another car on track the air bag wont go off and blind you possiably causing you to hit the wall or another car much harder.

Since the class is cancled you dont have to have the badges to run in PTE. Unless you are building a dedicated race car dont worry about it.
