About this event
We are constantly looking for new ways for our customers to enjoy their fine automobiles. Open to all levels of experience and cars!
Track days are an opportunity to drive your car, a friend’s car and/or ride with someone on a race track! All types of cars are allowed to participate. The experience will increase your comfort with your car, improve your driving skills, give you confidence behind the wheel and let you feel how cars respond in different situations. Giving you an opportunity to explore the upper levels of acceleration, braking and cornering your car has to offer. It’s also extremely fun!
We will be on the track in 3 run groups. Parade will probably have 2 sessions, one at lunch and one mid afternoon. The other two groups will rotate with 30 minute sessions keeping track hot so plenty of drive time for all!!
Parade: A slower drive anyone can take around the course without a helmet. As needed, we will have a pace car to set max speed. No passing.
Beginners/Instruction: For people who have limited experience or the first time on a track who want to learn how to safely drive the course at higher speeds. True beginners we strongly suggest taking the instructor package to accompany you on the first several sessions at least. Or have a very experienced person ride with you. Helmets and technical inspection are required. Point by passing is allowed. Speeds are moderate.
Solo: For experienced drivers with substantial track time. Our Solo group has some FAST drivers so depending on participation levels we may break this into an Intermediate Group and Supoer Solo. Helmet and technical inspection are required. Point by passing is allowed. Speeds are highest.
We look forward to you joining us as a car owner, driver, or spectator. Spectating if free and open to all but you do need to register so you will be on the list to be admitted. That is the track rule. If you are a car owner when you register you can add people who will attend with you.
