Let us tie you & your car together in a synchronized dance beyond your wildest dreams. Join us at Carolina Motorsports Park on October 9 and 10 ON THE NEW PAVEMENT for the best bargain in high performance driving education.
Learn high speed driving and car control skills through classroom and in-car or lead-follow training from experienced instructors. Bring your street car or track car: all makes and models except soft top convertibles and open cockpit cars are welcome. No previous experience necessary.
The cost is only $400 for the weekend. We are offering an "Early Bird Discount" of $350 if you register prior to midnight on July 15, 2021. We are also offering a special discounted rate of $300 through the close of the event registration for active duty military, law enforcement officers, young drivers 16&17, and all high school or college students with a current ID card.
Friday, October 8 is an open track day being run in conjunction with Turn One at CMP at discounted rates but only for advanced solo drivers and instructors registered for the school on the weekend. If you or your friends want to participate on Friday but are not registering for the school, register directly with Turn One at https://carolinamotorsportspark.com/turn-one-track-days/
We are excited about the extremely positive response as shown by the high number of registrations we have received. As a result, at this time, all registrations are automatically placed in the "Wait List" category. Experience of new student registrants is evaluated daily.
The Beginner (D) and Novice (C) Groups are almost full.
You will be notified when your registration is accepted.
ATTENTION INSTRUCTORS Your registration is initially wait listed, but all instructors are being accepted and will be converted to "Confirmed" after Jay has seen your registration.
Space is limited! Please register early to assure your spot. All registrations must be completed on line here in MotorsportReg. There is a limit on the number of participants that can be accommodated with the lead-follow method of instruction in the Beginner, Novice and Intermediate groups. Registrations that are early waitlisted will easily be approved if we are able to do in-car instruction. Based on the current COVID situation, the plan is to use the lead-follow method. We will review the COVID status through the summer, make a decision in August, and adjust our teaching method to in-car if possible.
Run group is assigned by the Chief Instructor based on driver experience/resume information that you provide during this registration process in MotorsportReg. You will receive your group assignment and a vinyl number for your car's windshield when you check in at Registration at the track.
Experience levels for run groups:
A = Advanced (Solo driving with documented advanced driver status)
B = Intermediate (Experienced with several driving school and open track events, instructor optional)
C = Novice (Limited experience with one or two prior driving schools or open track events, instructor required)
D = Beginner (No prior road course track driving experience, instructor required)
