This event has three registration options – Novice Group, Enthusiast Group, and Time Trial. Please choose the correct element during the registration process:

NG drivers will participate in classroom sessions covering track driving concepts, flagging, etiquette, and more. Also there is track time to practice what you have learned with lead-follow. When you are ready, you will be signed off to solo. This will also earn you a SCCA Time Trial Novice license. 
  • The Enthusiast Group (EG) is for those who have been signed off to solo and would like to have some time to practice before they start Time Trial competition. It is also for those who wish to get out on track for the fun of it without being in a timed competition. 
  • The Time Trials (TT) element is a timed event (SCCA level 2 Track Event), with the option to participate in the 2021 Time Trials Championship Series.
