On September 16th and 17th, 2017, Apex Track Events will host a High Speed Driving Event and Instructor Clinic on North Carolina’s Center for Automotive Research’s road course. This road course is ideally situated in Garysburg, NC and features a 40 feet wide bi-directional freshly paved road course with a ½ mile straightaway, 11 constant radius turns and large grassy run-off areas. There is no competition for times or trophies but a lot of fun to be had. Virtually any car is fully capable of handling this type of event. Saturday, the 16th is open to all experience levels however Sunday, the 17th is only available for drivers who have been "Solo'd" We will be conducting an Instructor Clinic on Sunday so instructors will not be available for in car coaching. We will run in the popular counter-clockwise configuration both days.
You must have a valid driver's license to attend. You will be able to download a technical inspection form that your personal mechanic will perform before you leave home. All you need to bring is this and a Snell SA2010 or later helmet.
We will have an at track safety inspection at the hotel on Friday night and at the track on Saturday morning.
This event is open to all makes and models and you do not have to be a club member to participate. There will be a full day of track time and classroom instruction with 4-5 sessions in a non-timed HPDE set up. Car sharing is allowed with separate registration for each driver. This event will fill very quickly, so you will need to place your entry soon. The price for this full day at the race track on Saturday is $175. Instructors will be able to track for no charge. All we ask is that you help one novice student and one intermediate student. Driving History/Experience will be verified for all Instructors.
All skill levels are welcome from beginner to track veteran.
We split drivers up into 4 experience groups: One of the four groups will be dedicated to novice students who will be required to have in car instructors.
Green Group (Novice) This group is for anyone with no or very little on track experience. An instructor will be provided at no charge for all members of this group.
Yellow Group (Intermediate) This group is for anyone with some on track experience. An instructor will be provided at no charge to members of this group. Once considered safe to run alone, drivers in this group can be "Solo'd" so they can drive on track without an instructor.
Blue Group (Advanced) This group is for anyone with plenty of on track experience.
White Group (Instructor) This group is reserved for instructors only.
We have a block of rooms reserved at the discounted rate of $79 per night. Just call and mention the Group code "ApexJN"
