Event Format:  We are overwhelmed by the number of Novice and Intermediate 1 registrations so we have changed the format of the event.

1-Day event; 3 group format (Novice, Intermediate 1, & SOLO Experienced; lots of track time/day. Program designed to safely introduce Novice drivers to the track through classroom discussion, skills development exercises, and on-track in-car instruction. Intermediate 1 drivers will forgo the classroom and exercises and will be trained by our on-track in-car coaches until such time that they can successfully solo. Experienced SOLO (Intermediate 2 and Advanced combined) drivers will be evaluated and coached to meet each driver’s needs. For SOLO drivers, controlled passing in designated areas with a signal/point-by.
