Event requirements

Event requirements

Drivers will be divided into three run groups based on their driving experience. 

 

There will be a pace car with no passing allowed in the “green” group for drivers who are new to the track or have limited driving time.  The green group will be a relaxed driving opportunity for people who have no or limited track experience.  These drivers will be able to get a taste of the track without having to be concerned about passing as they learn about themselves and their cars.  Some instructors will be available at no charge to give newer drivers a few driving tips and teach them the line of the track. In this group only, no helmets will be required and VIR’s roll-bar rules will not apply (so you can drive any stock Boxster).  For SUVs... Only qualified track vehicles (For example: Porsche Cayennes or Macans, BMWs and Mercedes-Benz SUVs) will be permitted for either group.

 

 

Yellow group will be allowed to pass on the three straights with point by (will be discussed in drivers meeting).   To qualify for the yellow group you must have completed 5 past track events that have been recoreded on motorsports reg.  

 

Passing will be allowed in the "red" group for experienced drivers in certain areas (will be discussed in driver's meeting). To qualify for the red group you must have completed 10 past track events that have been recorded on motorsports reg. 

Please contact Paul Murphy at pmurphy@euroclassics.com for more information regarding which group you should sign up for.
