What is a tracktool?

My definition of a tracktool is a street car modified for use on race tracks. This distinguishes a tracktool from a race car, which is purpose-built only for competition use on tracks. Tracktools are usually meant for use during track days and other events on race tracks, such as the Touristenfahrten on the N├╝rburgring Nordschleife. In many cases, tracktools are road-legal, making it possible to travel to the track without the use of a trailer.

It is often a goal to achieve maximum driving pleasure on a limited budget. Because of this, used sporty cars, which can be had for a reasonable amount of money, are often used as base vehicle. Besides driving itself, working on the car is an important part of this hobby.
