We have received a great amount of interest from both students and solo drivers who hoped this event were going to take place on a Saturday Night and provide for student and solo drivers!

We can now allow the first 20 students (Green, Yellow drivers with Instructors required) to sign up.
The first 20 Instructors who sign up will be able to run at no charge.
All participants will be organized into run groups in accordance with experience, skill, and type of vehicle based on the experience of the applicants. Participants not "signed off" to solo will be required to drive with an instructor on board at all times. Under no circumstances will timed laps be permitted!
We have been able to keep the cost of this event below $200.00.
