This run group is designed for drivers requiring instruction, looking to be signed off by a Speed Therapy Instructor, or speeds are consistent with others in this group. Instructors are provided free of charge by Speed Therapy.

Advanced Session:
“A” Group

This group is designed for drivers with previous driving experience at the venue and have been signed off by the Speed Therapy Chief Instructor. Drive with other experienced drivers. Speeds should be consistent with the rest of the run group.

Open Session:
“O” Group

This is a restricted run group designed for advanced drivers, many of whom hold valid Race Drivers. Passing is open, unless otherwise specified during the mandatory Drivers Meeting. Each driver must be signed off by the Chief Instructor for the Event.

Please note that it is each Registrants obligation to understand and comply with the rules as outlined.

Any failure of drivers to obey the rules-of-the-day will at minimum be sent back for instruction in “B” group or in much rarer circumstances be banned from participating in the Event (no refund will be offered in such situations). We take safety very seriously.

Sessions are 20min each, starting at 9:00am. Specific details or changes for the Day are provided during the Drivers Meeting held at 8:15am on each day of the event. It is mandatory for all drivers to attend the Drivers Meeting. Failure to do so may invalidate participation in the event without refund.

The Organisers may at their soul discretion combine Session Groups if vehicle numbers are limited in any particular group. In such cases, Session times typically are adjusted to 30 minutes each. Additionally, on occasion the organisers may chose, again at their discretion to run Open Sessions under the traffic control of the “Pit Out” Marshall.

Lunch will be provided, unless otherwise noted during Registration for an Event.

Please inspect or have your vehicle Inspected so it meets or exceeds the following minimum requirements. Your certified automotive dealer or your preferred Tuner shop can provide all the help required to prepare your car for the Driving School. We are not able to do this technical inspection/preparation for you. You will have to certify that this inspection was done properly.

  • Muffler system: A Verify pipes and attaches. We have already found muffler parts on the track.
  • Brake Rotors: No cracks or chips. Cross-drilled rotors crack easily.
