Students can either sign up for the Driving school or the TT, not Both.
TT is solo, an instructor can ride along with drivers, but TT drivers cannot have non instructor passengers.
==> Instructors: If you are doing the TT and Instructing in the driving school, then you must sign up for both events.
Tow Hooks are required. Please make sure they are on your car before going to grid.
Passing will be open to all corners that make sense. Point by is encouraged, but not required.
We need to have 12 drivers signed up 2 weeks before the event so we dont have to cancel the TT rungroup. So sign up early.
Safety, learning and fun are our priorities — in that order, safety first. And you will have FUN!

Mandatory Vehicle Inspection
A technical inspection is required of all cars, and must be completed prior to the school. This is to check the condition of your vehicle, especially the parts that will be critical for an event like this. Tech inspection forms must be downloaded from the forms page. Most safety equipment will be checked: tires, brakes, brake fluid, battery hold-downs, seat belts and more. If there is any doubt about the condition of your equipment, have it replaced. New tires are not required or necessarily recommended. The inspection can be completed by your mechanic (expect a charge) or there will be FREE technical inspections. Be sure to bring your helmet to the inspection, as it will also be checked. DO NOT PUT THIS OFF! Be sure to give yourself time in case something is found that must be fixed.
Helmets and Safety
Note: Snell 2010 and 2015 helmets only! Snell 2005 is no longer valid. Safety is our first priority. Drivers and instructors are required to wear a Snell 2010 (or newer) certified helmet while on the track. Both Snell motorcycle (M) and auto racing (SA) certifications are acceptable. Bring a helmet even if you have to borrow one. A limited number of helmets can be rented for $10 at the school, but we cannot guarantee their availability. If you plan to buy a helmet, first find and read a guide on how to properly fit a helmet. Cars, drivers and instructors judged to be operating in an unsafe manner will be removed from the track and no refunds will be given. No glass beverage containers are permitted at any time. No alcoholic beverages are permitted on the premises while cars are on the track.
Helmets must be rated to Snell, SFI or FIA standards as detailed below.
Snell Rated Helmets. Either Snell SA (Special Applications, e.g. racing) or Snell M (motorcycle) or Snell K (karting) helmets may be used.
Helmets that meet BMW CCA Club Racing eligibility rules at the time of the event are also allowed. (These presently include SFI 31.1 and FIA 8860, subject to change.)
General recommendation: Use of a full-face helmet with its face shield in place is strongly advised. The face shield of a full face helmet should either be worn closed or removed from the helmet. Any external visor above the eye-port should be removed.
Its not likely to happen, but please have your car ready and tech'ed ready to go. Assume you might get in!
Saturday Night BBQ
There will be a Saturday night BBQ after the track goes cold for the day. $20
