Novice-Only Track Day
Our Novice Only Track day allows anyone to experience the thrill of driving fast and having fun without the pressure of being surrounded by more experienced drivers. You'll learn how to drive on the full 1.5 mile road course and learn the fundamentals of high performance driving under the guidance of M1 Concourse professional driving instructors. If you've always wanted to experience a track day or have experienced a couple and want to feel more confident our Novice Track Day is for you.
The day will include:
- On-site training
- Limited number of cars on circuit
- Lead-Follow for three, 15 minute sessions
- Turn-in and apex cones to help you learn corner lines at most circuits
- Experienced driver coaches
- Coffee & snacks will be available for purchase on site from Hazel Coffee Co. throughout the day
The day will be split into two sessions: Morning and Afternoon. We will have a limited number of full-day tickets available. Each run group will run for 15 minutes at a time. A schedule will be provided at the event.
