Updated: Monday, October 28 2013, 08:48 AM CDT

With a state of the art race course in their backyard, racing enthusiasts in Austin are no longer standing in the bleachers.


"The average person can purchase an Aston martin GT4 Challenge Cup Series car. He goes through training or she goes through training, by April they're a full fledge GT4 challenge competitor," says Sonny Morgan, Aston Martin of Austin.


If you have an extra $250,000 to spend, you can live out your fantasy of becoming a race car driver.


"I think it's a great car that you can buy at the dealership and keep in your garage and take it out to the race track. There's nothing better than that," says John Mayes, Austinite and racing enthusiast.


30 drivers will participate in the series come April. There will be eight races in the GT4 Challenge Series and we've been told one of them may be right here in Austin.


"The race enthusiasts have always been in Austin they just always had to go somewhere else to enjoy the places. Now they have the most technological and state of the art track right here," says Morgan.
