DMS Newb School & Practice Day

Stratotech Park

About this event


DMS Time Trials Newb School & Practice Day - A beginner school & practice day for the StratoCross & StratoAttack competitions.

This is the absolute best bang for the buck "performance mod" you can do to get faster this season!

Half the evening is spent going through the basics along with one on one time with an instructor to help you get up to speed! The last half of the evening is open practice on an combined Autocross & Track Sprint course. You can expect to leave this event feeling confident in coming out to your first competition, along with learning new driving skills that will make you more competitive this season!

Starting at 5:30pm we will go through the basics of how these competitions work along with some tech talk in how to get yourself & your car ready. Followed by a course walk through a short StratoCross course with explanations on how to navigate each obstacle you will encounter. After, low speed "follow the leader" practice runs will be done to let you get a feel for the course. Followed by runs taken at your own pace with an instructor.

Later on, the course will be changed to a combined Autocross & Track Sprint Course with a few more "follow the leader" runs followed by runs at your own pace with an instructor.

The last half of the evening will be open practice on the combined course for everyone. The timing system will be setup, but times will not be recorded for later viewing.
