I’m visiting Taipei this March for about ten days, and I’m trying to find some info on doing trackdays (car or motorcycle) while I’m there. I’ve read a bit of the threads about the GAMFA trackdays, and it sounds pretty great… except that I don’t have access to a car/moto in Taiwan, so I’d have to figure out something to do with rental or something else. I also only have a US (California) driver’s license (including M1). Are there possibilities, or am I just out of luck? Other related activities like short road trips with fun roads are great too, but trackdays are really where it’s at.
Some background, if anyone cares… I was born in Taiwan, but moved to the US when I was 3. I like to refer to myself as an “undercover foreigner”. I can speak conversational Mandarin with an American accent, but my vocabulary is really limited. My parents live in Taipei, I live in California. I’ve done a few auto-x events in an LS1 Camaro and several Miatas of various years. I have about 2 years of street motorcycle riding experience on a '95 Triumph Speed Triple, a Ninja 250, and my current '07 CBR600RR, and have done 5 trackdays (at Thunderhill and Reno-Fernley Raceway, all on the Triumph). I ride about a nice, slow C+ pace… I’m faster and a lot more confident on 4 wheels than on 2.
Anyway, enough talk! Thanks in advance, even if you guys just tell me I’m screwed.
EDIT: Oh yeah, and if age matters for licenses or renting or whatnot, I’ll be 26 at the time.
