Event requirements

IMPORTANT STUFF

1.   Registration is critical -- priority for instructor allocation and acceptance into this limited event is decided by date of registration. In the unfortunate event that you register but we don’t have an available instructor or place available, you will not be charged for registration or a cancellation fee. Your credit card is not charged at the time of registration. It will be charged on a space-available basis as we confirm you in to the event and prior to the event taking place. Registration does not guarantee track time. You must sign all waivers and comply with the rules of the event to qualify.

2.   While instructors may be male or female, the invitation to attend as a driver is extended to women-only for this event.

3.   You will be assigned an instructor unless:

  • You update your MotorsportReg.com profile with your track driving experience (i.e. # of events driven, tracks driven, OK to solo by whom and when), or
  • You have been signed off  “OK to Solo” by Scott Mann, Chief Driving Instructor

4.    You must present a completed safety inspection form and a valid driver’s license during the sign-in at the track. Accelerating Change will assign and supply sticky numbers for your car which attach to the glass of your windshield and rear window. Please find our Tech Inspection form here.
