Do you think it would be a good idea to buy a used race car as a project?

Has anyone on here done this already?

Would it even be suitable for road use?

What types of car Would you consider drag, rally, circuit, drift?
 
Look at the service history and track miles. 10 track miles is worth 1000 road miles in terms of wear and tear.

Competition clutches, high RPM power bands and emissions from the exhaust all cause problems for daily driving.

It depends so much on the car. A classic car restored to Rally spec would be the sort of thing I'd go for. The mechanical side should be quite simple.
