The small Mini will be the easiest to control. Its slow speed will allow you to learn all about the types of turns and traps awaiting you on the track, but the front-wheel drive will not allow you to master all of the driving techniques. Volkswagen Golf GTI 16V or Peugeot 208 R2 are good choices for cheaper models. Then you should choose one of the classics with the AWD - Subaru WRX STI or Mitsubishi Lancer EVO X.
