You don't need to drive on the track or have a Vette to take the trip. There
are a lot of us that will be willing to give you the ride of your life at the track.
Just ask Dan I think he had more track time last year than any one and he
didn't drive a lick...


So come on out and join us...

If you're following Patrick, there is a good chance it will be bust. Ask him about his off road part of the trip last time. Avoid that exit.

Previous experience is not required.

There will be a mandatory classroom session both Saturday & Sunday mornings for Beginner and Novice groups. Lots of people will be willing to help. Spring Mountain instructors will be available to answer questions and usually to give rides or ride as a passenger in your car. This will make your May class even more fun.
