About this event
NCCAR Lap Event presented by Tidewater Sports Car Club
All skill levels are welcome from beginner to track veteran!
This will be our first ever lap event. We will split participants into 4 groups of 15 drivers. One of the four groups will be dedicated to novice drivers who will be required to run with instructors. Each run group can plan on four to five 20 to 25 minute sessions, and all solo drivers may take part in a one hour open track session at the end of the day.
Green: This is the novice group for anyone who has zero, or very limited track experience (2 weekends or less). An instructor will be provided for all members of this group.
Yellow: This is the Intermediate group, which is for anyone with multiple weekends of experience. Instructors are available to all members of this group, but not required once the driver has been signed off for Solo.
Blue: This is the Advanced run group, which is for anyone with many track weekends, no instructors.
White: This is the instructor run group.
