Thanks for the responses.
How would you know what they server in those clubs?

Well you don't have to go there to know those drinks are a little foo foo. But if you are asking if I have been to one, yes. My ex girlfriend liked the music. It was actually pretty fun. Wasn't west Hollywood. It was Laguna Beach. I think it was called the "Boom Boom Room"

Not necessarily. I taped up my bumper my first track day but didn't bother the other times. I've seen other cars tape up their entire bumper along with headlights and fogs etc. Just depends on whether or not you care about debris possibly chipping paint. If you have a clear bra on the bumper you should be fine. If you don't have mud flaps and are worried then I would tape up the part where the fenders flare out in front of the rear tires. Other than that, have fun!

be prepared to clean your car after you get home. it picks up the small liquified flying rubber from other cars. I had black streaks of rubber on my car hood after track days. Oh and clean out the little pieces of rubber from the your rims too!
