I have plenty of enthusiastic driving experience but no track experience. I would absolutely love to join in but concerned my inexperience could make someone else's track day painful. How does a newb take part without being a PITA?

This is a perfect event to get your feet wet. The Rookie Group caters specifically to first time and novice track day drivers. All you do is pay your entry fee, show up and take part in the driver’s meeting, ask questions and go out and run at a pace that is comfortable for you. Remember this is not a race, it’s a lapping day. There are rules in place for the Rookies to make the day as stress free as possible. Also, there are plenty of experienced drivers that will answer your questions and they if you ask nice, let you ride with them as a right seater to get a feel for the track before you even get on the track by yourself.

Noticing a couple comments about crashing.

This is for fun, it's not a competitive environment.
Passing is only in the two higher groups and only with a wave by in the straights.

If your getting close enough to me in the infield that I feel unsafe Im getting off and talking to the flagger.

If you start pushing breaking zones harder and go off track you end up in the dirt or grass, you pull off evaluate what happened check the car off and let your heart rate slow down.

The only wall I've ever thought about hitting is the main straight and because im terrified of it I take the last corner tight and slower then what I know is the right line and keep my distance. I don't even time laps im not going to risk tapping the wall if the rear end kicks out or I slide on some dirt etc.

This is the only group I've done lapping with and only group I will and it's because of how Rick and Joe set up the rules and make it a safe environment.

Have a question - how much fuel can I expect to burn...?

I typically run two full tanks of fuel through my own car, yes I bring fuel but others sneak into town at lunch to top off (no 94 close).

I fill up in town before hitting the track
Usually I use half or a little more 3/4
The gas station is like 10 mins away-

Have a question - how much fuel can I expect to burn...?It can wildly vary.
I went through over a 1/4 tank each 20 min session. Started full topped up with 20 liters and had the light on when I left.
Then other guys only used a half tank the whole day.
The other side effect of being in boost for 80% of the lap was I colored my exhaust https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190322/e9cc7d9512d3046cdcde52eba24f1313.jpg

I heard thereís sometimes a new flag man- a little bit of a prick for the rules. He will use the black flag if something is not right

Does anyone bother with additional track insurance for the day? My friend looked into it and he was saying the insurance company will cover you regardless unless you mention it beforehand and they say no... then you're SOL.

I won't.

One of the very best tracks out there for your first lapping day experience. No pressure to go an ounce faster vs where your comfortable, yes we have a rookie / novice group.

Driver’s meeting is at 9:30. First cars on track at 10:00. We have flags to indicate which group is on the track:
A - Advanced
I - Intermediate
R - Rookie

We will be sounding an air horn and/or blowing a whistle to indicate the next group on track.

The Advanced group will be first out, followed by the Intermediates then the Rookies. (A. I. R.) This gives the rookies a couple of sessions to be a right seater before going out solo.

Officially registered and bringing a buddy with his 96 coyote powered GT who is registered as well. One of the rare instances that I can say I am looking forward to a Monday! See you all at the TMP.

Everyone just FYI I am planning to attend, but will not be bringing my own car ... but I will have my helmet with me, and will offer my services as a coach for those who desire some assistance. Rick will introduce me at the drivers' meeting for those who have not met me previously but would like the help. I'm not a top-level expert by any means, but have been involved in motorsport for about 30 years now with a fair amount of track experience and many coaching days under my belt.

Did I mention that it has an 03/04 Cobra IRS and a Magnum T56 as well? Itís a really fun ride and he is very familiar with road course events. Unfortunately itís no longer on r compound tires anymore but still fun. He is a good guy Don, would be happy to show you the car.

I m a little worried bout the DAM rain??... :( ... 90% of 5-10 mm ... that ll kinda suck, no protection at the track... everything ll get wet :(

ZR

Been doing this a whole bunch of years now, several times in the past forecast has showed nothing but rain and day has turned out fantastic. Event is a go rain or shine, lapping when it's wet, to me is some of the most fun I've ever had there. Awesome way to brush up on real car control. Canada's Worst Driver and Icy corner challenge comes to mind.
Only means I'll be sporting street tires n wipers instead of R comps n caps on the wiper pivots is all.

Another bonus, always a good breeze there, dries up a wet track in a hurry, sorta built in Jet dryer kinda deal me thinks.
