Starting Line Driver's Edge - Red Hills

South Georgia Motorsports Park

About this event

 

SCCA Starting Line will be hosting a Starting Line Driver's Edge experience at South Georgia Motorsports Park in Adel, GA in conjunction with SCCA's Tire Rack Red Hills National Tour. This weekend-long experience is geared toward those new to National Tours. The SCCA Starting Line Driver’s Edge uses a team of successful autocross veterans who remember what it was like the first few times they pulled up to the starting line to make a run on the big stage of national-level competition.

In short, you’ll be given the tools and an explanation of the ins and outs of a Tire Rack National Tour event, arming you with the information to conquer the event without the intimidation factor that comes from doing something new. Our coaches will walk you through the event information page, talk about run/work assignments, teach you how the grid works, what to do at impound, and the information available to you at the driver’s information center.

Most importantly, our championship-level coaches will help you throughout the weekend, checking in to help answer any questions that come up, touching base in grid before your run heat, and providing support and encouragement along the way. Think of them as your big brother or big sister for the weekend!

There is NO CHARGE to take part in the Starting Line Driver's Edge experience. If you are a driver that is new to National Tours, we encourage you to sign up and take part! 

You can take part in the Starting Line Driver's Edge program and not the Evo Advantage Driving School and vice versa (or both!). Make sure the correct entries show up in your cart when checking out.

 

Evolution Performance Driving School will be hosting their Evo Advantage Driving School ahead of the Starting Line Driver's Edge on Friday morning. This school is great for any skill level, from seasoned veterans to the complete novice, and allows participants to get some great seat time as well as instruction before the weekend's competition. Instruction will take place on the event's Test & Tune course and is a scaled-down version of their Phase 1 School. The program will net students a minimum of 12 runs with Evo's team of National caliber instructors. The Evo Advantage Driving School is not limited to Starting Line Driver's Edge participants, nor do you have to take part in both the School and the Driver's Edge programs if you do not wish. 

The Evo Advantage Driving School is limited to 24 students and is $125.00. Two-driver cars are allowed, just make sure to enter the other driver's name in your entry when asked.
