  • There will NOT be dedicated Open Track group for this event, but as always, Experienced & Advanced students are eligible for instructor sign-offs per the opinion of your instructor.
  • Due to substantial fee increases by Watkins Glen, Instructors who are planning to drive at the event and want a garage spot will be charged $25 when they register on MSR. Fees for students have also been adjusted accordingly.
  • If instructors want a garage spot, they (instructors) must reserve a garage spot when registering for the event. Garage spots will be held for instructor registrations until April 6th, 2017. After that, garage spots will be offered to students for $25 who have indicated they were interested in renting them, on a "first registered, first served" basis.

Event requirements

This is not a racing school but rather a high performance driving school on a race circuit under close supervision by instructors. You will be taught the fine art of car control and fundamentals of vehicle dynamics. You will be able to learn the capabilities of your car and improve your driving skills at speeds that are not permitted on public roads. All drivers will be instructed on safety regulations, and general etiquette on the track. In addition to the "Pre-Event Safety Inspection" which the driver is required to have performed, an "On-Site Safety Inspection" will be performed prior to the event. A confirmation notice that explains the Safety Inspection requirements will be sent to you approximately 3 – 4 weeks before the event and after registration and payment are received and accepted.


All drivers must have a helmet which is SNELL rated 2010 or 2015, SA or M.
