More experienced drivers will be placed accordingly. So come on out to the track August 27-29th whether it is your first driving event or one of many.
NEWS UPDATE!!! With COVID still lurking we may be following some form of PCA's Lead-Follow protocol. If regulations loosen plus both the student and instructor feel safe together some instructors have indicated they'll be willing to do in-car instruction. Stay tuned for more info as we develop the program.

Nelson Ledges Friday is Instructor and Advanced driver/solo Day
Participating Advanced Solo Students
Three solo run groups for experienced solo advanced students who attend at least 75% of RSP PCA track events during the calendar year (or at least 3 out of the last 5 weekend Drivers Education events) will be available.
Students who participate in the FIDD will have separate rules from the instructors similar to Driver’s Education days and will not be allowed to drive in all run groups.
All students wishing to participate in the FIDD are subject to review and participation is not guaranteed. Even when a student is accepted, their on-track behavior will be monitored. If students do not demonstrate appropriate track etiquette they will be asked to park their car for the remainder of the day and their money will not be refunded.
Proper Etiquette is defined as (but not limited to):
- Demonstrating excellent car control, (offs that require the track to shut down will not be tolerated)
- Knowledge of the limit of traction
- Condition-appropriate driving
- Respect for other cars, both while passing and being passed (ignoring mirrors will not be tolerated)
- Respect for flag stations and lead tower
Loaner/Rental Helmet Policy: Helmets are "loaned" to Green Group drivers only for a maximum of 4 events, cumulatively. Loaner helmets MUST be returned at the end of the event. Don't make me hunt you down!! After the 4th loan the club reserves the right to "rent" the helmet to the driver for $35/event. Loaners will be tracked effective this year, and will carryover to future years. All loaner helmets are SA2015 or SA2020 and all have HANS anchors.
