Open Practice - 10/05/2018

Summit Point - Summit Point Circuit

About this event







Open Practice is non-timed, non-competition track time for licensed racers. This program is designed for those seeking additional seat time for driver improvement, vehicle and chassis tuning, and for those who want more practice time on the race circuit prior to a race event. This program permits open passing in order to maximize the use of time spent on the track. This is also a great opportunity to shake down your car or test for an upcoming race. 

Chumpcar and LeMons licenses are NOT accepted at Open Practice events. 

AER license holders should inquire with the office before registering.

Passing is permitted in curves.  Mock racing or overly aggressive driving is not permitted.

Once track officials know the number and types of cars attending, Summit Point will divide the cars into groups of similar configurations and performance. Summit Point reserves the right to modify the run groups at any time during the day. Each run group should expect a minimum of four 20-minute sessions.

Must be 16 or older to participate. Under 18 MUST have parent or guardian present.
