About this event
Come join M4theM as we revive the Rockingham roval and debut our next step in driver advancement, Race Circuit Drivers Education. (RCDE)
RCDE is NOT a race. It is an educational driver's event held on a high-speed racecourse, not a parking lot.
We will hold our first "Race Circuit Drivers Education" track day on the full roval with 2 hours and 5 minutes of track time. The only modification to the original roval will be an additional chicane at the beginning of the front stretch to make the track more suitable for showroom/daily driven cars by slightly lowering the top speeds into turns 1 and 2 and the backstretch braking zones. The infield road course section will be run as originally designed.
This is not a cone and paint, parking lot course. This is a full-length, purpose-built, high-speed racecourse. Around the oval portion, there are walls, some concrete, some SAFER barrier. Speeds will easily exceed 100MPH on the straights for all but the lowest HP cars.
We will have 5 classes spread over 4 run groups:
Instructed Novices will run with their instructor in the intermediate group their instructor deems most appropriate to their car and skill.
Intermediate Stock/Low HP. Less experienced drivers in lower HP cars or drivers wishing to run at a slower pace. Checked off to Solo by M4theM or other recognized DE organization.
Intermediate Prepped/High HP. Less experienced drivers that are driving higher HP or race-prepped cars. Checked off to Solo by M4theM or other recognized DE organization.
Veteran Stock/Low HP. Lower HP or stock vehicles whose driver has substantial track experience. Must be approved by M4theM or have proof of experience from other recognized DE organizations.
Veteran Prepped/High HP. Well experienced drivers that are driving higher HP or race-prepped cars. Must be approved by M4theM or have proof of experience from other recognized DE organizations.
NASCAR garages will be available for rent with occupancy starting Friday, Oct 1 at 4 pm until Sat Oct 2 at Sundown.
The event registration cost is $280 per person.
Garage stalls are $40 first-come, first-serve, 34 total available.
We must have 40 participants signed up by Friday, Sept 10th to guarantee the event will happen.
Drivers with no track or M4theM SCDE experience must sign up for Instructed Beginner. Instructed beginners will receive classroom instruction and have an instructor in the car or lead/follow until you are deemed by the instructor as ready to solo. Your instructor will recommend the proper intermediate group for you to complete the day if you graduate to solo before the event is complete.
Other classes have explanations of what class/group you should choose. Please choose the appropriate group. There is no ego or pecking order to an M4theM event. We strive to keep cars classed by lap time or closure rate. We want to avoid a 700hp Corvette closing on a 120 hp Miata on the straights scenario so please sign up wisely as the descriptions suggest. We will move drivers around at the event to assure maximum compatibility and safety.
