Are there places in Nor Cal where I can practice doing circuit runs.
A place that's not too expensive. I'm not ready to compete,
and I don't want to street race, so where can I practice?

look around the site a lil more....there's a solo2 practicing event for 35 bux, 25 if you're a scca member. the only thing cheaper than that is on the streets and that's just stupid.

The practice events are a good way to get your feet wet. Usually you get teamed up with an instructor, they teach you the rules/safety, how to walk a course, etc. and you get way more passes then at a competition.

I see the street racing appeal now.

street racing is so overrated. i'd much rather pay 200 bucks to race at california speedway or 20 bux to race at the drag strip than racing on the street and getting a 4k ticket, impounded car for a month, and 6 month suspended license.

Just come to an autocross event and run your car as it is. Easiest and safest way to do it. Don't worry about being competitive, no one is when its their first time. I'm slowly getting into road racing but it takes a dedicated car which I don't have. And Opak Racing (the guys who run the Spoon DC5, S2k, and Fit) are looking for MR2 road racers too. Once in a lifetime opportunity but unfortunately I can't commit to it.

If you want to go a bit further, try this:
