About this event
Participation will be limited to 24 registrants (two drivers may co-drive one car). If the event is full, you will be placed on a wait list.
Drivers are encouraged to participate on all season tires (just to save race tires - LOTS of runs...) Students must bring a notebook.
Each student will be assigned to an instructor (3-4 students per instructor per run group). Students will have a different instructor in the afternoon.
Tentatively committed instructors:
- Cameron DeGraff
- George Curtis
- Skyler Sisson
- Stephen Curt
Course design will be short, approximately 30 seconds per run. Course will contain many of the elements commonly found in a typical autocross course:
- Fast Sweeper
- Decreasing Radius Turn
- Pin turn around
- Chicago Box
- >120 degree turn
The morning will start at 8:30, when drivers will be assigned to an instructor. Instructors will then conduct a course walk with their instruction groups. The instructor will then split his instruction group into two run groups; the first group to drive first, and the second group to begin working the course, and driving second.
Drivers will be asked to run the course while the instructor observes. Drivers will record their best time as a bench-mark for the day’s progress.
Instructors will teach by a combination of riding with, observing, reviewing data (if available) and driving the car of each student. The first instruction period will last for 1.0 - 1.5 hours, where-upon the students will switch with the workers, and the workers will receive their first instruction.
A lunch break of approximately 3/4 hour will begin shortly after noon, and instruction will resume at 1:00. Pizza will be served, and it will be a working lunch.
Students will have a different instructor for the afternoon group. The afternoon instruction session will mirror the morning session with the exception that each student will finish the session with two solo timed runs which they will be able to compare to their beginning runs to measure their own improvement. The afternoon session will conclude with the instructor giving each student a short list of things to pay attention to for continued improvement/good habit formation.
Everyone will be asked to help with setup and clean-up. We can access the lot at 7:00 and must be cleaned up and off of the lot promptly at 4:00 pm. Everyone will be asked to help with setup and clean-up.
