RUN GROUPS
At this event, we are offering the following run groups:

  • Green: Our beginner instructed group, generally drivers with less than one full season of experience on track
  • Blue: Our intermediate instructed group, generally drivers with a full season or more of experience on track
  • White: Our intermediate non-instructed group, drivers who have been promoted to an RTR equivalent solo run group
  • Red/Black: Our advanced/instructor run group, drivers who have been solo for many seasons or are an instructor with HPDE organizations; placement at the discretion of the Chief Instructor

READ THIS if you're new to Riesentöter Driver's Education (DE)

  • I've never done a DE before. Awesome! So glad you decided to start! Please sign up in the GREEN run group.

    You probably have a lot of questions so feel free to contact registrar@rtr-pca.org - we're here to help you get comfortable and fall in love with Driver's Ed. We also urge you to read the Riesentöter Driver's Education Manual.

    Note: DE is a high speed driving school - not a racing school - conducted on a race track under the supervision of experienced instructors. You'll learn how to control your vehicle at speeds not legally attained on public roads, which will help prepare you for emergencies in normal driving while exploring your capabilities as a driver and those of your vehicle. You won't be pushed to go any faster than is comfortable for you. Our participants are organized into run groups based on experience and skill, so you will be driving alongside people with similar capabilities.
  • I've done DE, but never with Riesentöter. Welcome! Please sign up in the run group you think you belong in. We'll verify your experience with a PCA region (or similar club) you've recently driven with. Your actual run group will be determined by our Chief Instructor. Please note: New drivers aren't placed in our advanced (Black) group without a checkout ride, so don't get salty when the registrar tells you so - it's nothing personal.
  • I'm an instructor, but I've never instructed with Riesentöter. Before signing up, please contact registrar@rtr-pca.org and provide your PCA instructor number. If you don't have a PCA instructor number contact registrar@rtr-pca.org to learn about our new instructor checkout process.

CHANGES DUE TO COVID-19

  • These events have been planned to account for pandemic conditions as of January, 2021. If conditions change for the worse, we may be forced to adapt our events to ensure the safety of our drivers and instructors. If an event, or your registration, has to be canceled due to coronavirus, you will receive a full refund for any fees paid.
  • Due to COVID-19, guests are not allowed at this event. You can bring up to 2 crew members who must be at least 18 years old with valid ID and must register for this event in MotorsportReg before the registration deadline. The driver needs to register first so that the Crew Member can select the driver during their registration.
  • Masks are required when inside any building (including garages) and when interacting with other event participants. We encourage social distancing, including parking farther away from other cars than you normally would. We will not be sponsoring any social events.
  • We are particularly concerned about in-car transmission. For that reason:
    • Instructors will only have 1 student per weekend.
    • Instructors are encouraged to use hand signals, and save explication for the paddock (where both student and instructor should wear masks).
    • Communicators are allowed IF the student provides their own headset. Student Chatterbox headsets will be available for purchase at the event.
    • No ridealongs other than members of the same household. At least one of the people must be an instructor and neither person can be assigned to instruct another student or be instructed by someone else.
  • Please see our current COVID-19 procedures here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1Cbu_nMQGFeQhQgLMeea0hqQcQsdeM8wj/view?usp=sharing
  • In any case where track rules or guidelines issued by the state where the track is located conflict with Riesentoter procedures, the stricter rule shall be followed.
