The full-day school introduces key concepts applicable to performance driving and offers participants the opportunity to develop motorsports skills while working with professional performance driving instructors.

Professional instructors teach:

  •          Vehicle dynamics
  •          Traction management
  •          Vision and control
  •          Tips and techniques custom tailored to match your needs and ability level

Starting Line participants leave ready for motorsports competition if that’s where their interest takes them, but everyone gains an understanding of the capabilities of their vehicle and is given the opportunity to have a little fun with it.

Participants receive an SCCA membership, entries for optional future events, as well as subscriptions to SportsCar and Grassroots Motorsports magazines.

    Can a street legal car do it? What time is this event ? Can we get our inspected there the day of the event or does it have too be a day early ? 

    Andrea Albin

    Street-legal cars are welcome. The event will take the entire day, with gates opening at 7 am. A brief safety inspection will be done before you start driving the morning of the event.

    Can I drive a spec miata racecar with only drivers seat?

    John Hunter

    The school has the instructors ride with you, so there needs to be a seat for the instructor. I’m not sure they would be super enthused about riding on the floor!  

    Steve M Grizzel

     Lol, I'm sure!  Thanks John!

    Are V8 powered convertibles allowed at this without a rollcage?  Reason I ask is they are not allowed at Track Night in America.

    Andrea Albin

    Yes. This event operates under SCCA Solo (autocross) rules.
