Event Description

Join us for our annual Test & Tune/Open test and practice day at Marina. This is an open format event - no run groups or car classes will be assigned, just plenty of opportunity for tuning, practice, and of course fun driving! This event runs from 7am till 6pm, or until no one is left - whichever comes first.

We will offer three exercises:

1) Figure 8/Skidpad/Oval (multi-purpose exercise)
2) Short slalom
3) Mini autocross course (approximately 40s)

The Figure-8 is an excellent exercise to explore oversteer and understeer, skid recovery, throttle and steering smoothness, trail braking, vision, and braking smoothness. It is not for practicing drifting or burn outs - you will be asked to leave if this is your goal for the day!

The mini-course will include various elements you can expect to see during a competition event. The timing equipment will be set up with the display at the finish so you can run the course and see if your tuning and driver tweaks are making you faster.

We will start set up around 0715am and expect to open the test areas by 9am. Any help setting up is always appreciated! Donuts will be provided to fuel the setup crew, so come early, lend a hand, and socialize with your fellow club members.

Upon entry you will sign waivers, then proceed to the trailer to sign in, get your helmet checked, and get a wrist band. Only registered participants will be allowed on site - no guests please.

Participants are welcome to come and go throughout the day and run the exercises as much as you want. A note on format: This is a free-form event. No run groups, no guarantee of number of runs. It's simple: get in line, do a run, go back to the end of the line and wait for your next run.Two (or more) driver cars won't have a special lane and won't get rotated in like we do at other events. Everyone gets in line and waits for a run.

This event is limited to 50 cars. Two registration options are available: Driver & Car for $55, Driver Only for $20. Sandwich lunch is available for an extra charge. Gates open at 7am, event concludes at 6pm.
