Cancellations occurring between 05/20/19 and 07/05/19 will be issued your choice of a refund to your credit card (your registration fee minus $25) or a 100% credit in MotorsportReg. Credits can be applied to any future Riesentöter Driver's Ed event through 12/31/20, at which time the credit, if unused, will expire.

You can share a car with another registered driver ONLY IF you are in different run groups. Each driver must register separately. Intro to DE and Green participate together and are considered the same run group.


Licensed drivers 18 and older
All drivers must be 18 or older and present their valid driver’s license at registration on the first morning of the event. If you cannot present your driver’s license, you will not be allowed on track.

Drivers must wear a helmet with one of these ratings:

  • Snell SA/SAH 2010 or 2015
  • Snell M 2010 or 2015

We recommend full-face helmets. However, open face helmets can be used in cars with working, factory-installed air bags.

Mandatory pre-event tech inspection
All cars must be inspected by a qualified mechanic using the current RTR inspection form. The inspection must take place no more than 3 weeks before the event.

If you live in the RTR region your inspection needs to be done by an RTR approved inspector. For your convenience, we will hold an inspection event on Saturday June 29, 2019 at Dougherty Automotive; at that event, the cost of inspection is $20.

If you live outside of the RTR region, please have your car inspected by your local dealer or an ASE certified mechanic who is familiar with your marque. The mechanic must use the current RTR inspection form.

Eligible Vehicles
RTR events are open to passenger cars of all marques (sorry no trucks or open wheel cars). See below for info on convertibles. Please check the RTR inspection form for additional details regarding vehicle requirements.

NEW THIS YEAR: Vehicles With Multi-Point Harness Systems

If you are driving a vehicle with a multi-point harness system (5 point harness, 6 point harness, etc) you must utilize a head and neck restraint system, also known as a HANS device. The head and neck restraint device must meet either SFI 38.1 or FIA 8858 or its successor.

For more information, please see: Driver Education Minimum Standards

Before registering, please review the specific safety requirements for your car on the RTR inspection form.

  • You must be able to pass the “broomstick test” (your helmet must fit below an imaginary line between the roll bar and top of the windshield) when seated in your driving position.
  • If you will drive your car with the top down/off, you must wear arm restraints. If you will have an instructor, or hope to get a checkout ride, you must provide arm restraints for your instructor too.
  • Convertibles with only “pop up” roll over protection (such as the Porsche 996, 997 & 991) are only allowed in Intro to DE. Beyond that, you must install a fixed roll bar. Having a hardtop does not replace the need for fixed rollover protection.

Cars with Collision Avoidance/Automatic Emergency Braking Systems
All collision avoidance/auto braking systems must be turned off when you are on track. Please review your car’s manual to understand how your system works and how to turn it off. If the system needs to be turned off each time you start the car, be sure to work that into your run session prep routine. Please don't confuse these systems with stability management systems that should remain ON while driving on track.
