We are limiting the number to 120 MINI/MInis. This will give enough time and instructors for every driver. We will have groups ranging from first timers to advanced.

For Shared Entries, each attendee must register themselves, even if you are sharing a car. On the registration form, the first entrant should select the Shared Mini option and pay the total fees of $275. The co-driver, or second entrant should select the Co-Driver option ($0).
