Post by Clutch » Sun Jan 25, 2015 10:34 am

  • Each group is scheduled to get 4 sessions during the day
  • Each session will be ~15 to 20 minutes
  • Drivers are split up into groups based on experience.  

What kind of equipment do I need?
  • A vehicle that can pass a basic safety inspection (Contact me about restrictions on convertibles, open wheel, Truck, SUV and Hybrids)

  • No special tires are required!
I'm new to this!
  • Everyone was new at one point!
  • We have basic instruction in the morning
  • Club drivers can provide one on one instruction when available
  • Track day people are Awesome! Pretty much anyone at the track will be happy to help, or come find me and I'll introduce you to an experienced driver

I know it's a bit of a long shot but any chance OTD #1 might be open for open wheelers? Trying to maximize my testing time before the season starts.

I'd like to, but we need a full run group... I'll keep track of other OW drivers.

Driver's school is usually open to having you out with students if that works for you.

I would be interested in an open wheel session. Assuming I'd still be allowed since I haven't completed the school yet. I could use some testing to make sure the car is ready for the driving portion of the school.

Yeah I'm hoping to do both. I could use all the testing time I can muster.

I wanted to break in my engine after a rebuild but was denied to go out with the students last year. So don't rely on that "maybe" opportunity.

@Clutch: I'm interested in the 3 pack, any info on that? I will also be available as an instructor while participating in the specific OTD.
