Looking out over the next two months, spring will be in the air just about everywhere. That opens up many tracks that shut down for the winter.
Here are some picks that are worth travelling to in the next 8 weeks:
Iconic Track
Track: Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course
Location: Lexington, OH
Dates: April 17-19, 2015
Host: NASA Great Lakes

More information:
Track: Road Atlanta
Location: Braselton, GA
Dates: March 20-22, 2015
Host: SCCA Atlanta Region
Format: Club Racing
Event: Majors
Backstory: Stop for the Amelia Island Concours on the way to Road Atlanta (March 13-15). After the race, the dogwood should start to bloom, so stay and relax for a while. And if you know a billionaire, snag a round at Augusta National before it shuts down for the Masters.
