For Drivers By Drivers

Headed up by some of the best, our local track days are exhilarating, fast paced and safe. Seperated by Groups of experience level, these tracks days are opened to all whether a first timer or well versed on the track.

LEAD FOLLOW

A great way for beginners to learn a new track and get an understanding for the racing line. A line forms behind the leader who drives the circuit at a moderate speed keeping everything simple. A low stress easy going drive.

GROUPING

Drivers are placed into groups based on skill and experience on the particular circuit. Groups take turns on the circuit rotating in and out based on timed sessions. This keeps stress low as people are grouped together thus allowing for drivers to be matched with like skilled drivers.

OPEN TRACK

More for the experienced driver, open track means anyone is allowed out and hot laps are going down. Anyone can participate however all drivers need to be aware of their surroundings and other drivers. Passing will happen, limits will be pushed.

FLAGS OF THE TRACK

To communicate on the track, spotters use various flags with different meanings. You may be familiar with some already and others may be new to you. Take some time to learn the Flags of the Track now so when you're out on the track, you know what they each mean!

GREEN FLAG

Pretty straight forward. This is the start of the event. Predominantly used only at the start/finish line and waved from the starters bridge.

YELLOW FLAG

Caution Flag - SAFELY Reduce speed and look ahead for a potential accident on the course. Passing is NOT ALLOWED under caution.

RED FLAG

This usually means there is a serious situation on the track and drivers are to pull off the track and come to a complete stop as far off the track as safely possible.

BLACK FLAG

Driver warning for unsafe behavior. If waved, the driver must report to the pits, at that time an official will usually direct the driver where to stop and be educated on whatever infraction or unsportsmanlike behavior caught the attention of race officials. If the flag is rolled up and pointed at the driver, it is simply a stern warning of bad behavior. If all flag operators have an open black flag out, then the session or race is being halted and all cars must report to the pits

BLUE FLAG

A faster Driver is following closely and is about to pass / lap you. Open means the car is approaching. A waving flag means the car behind is right on the slower driver’s tail. In either case, the driver needs to be checking their mirrors. The best case is for the driver to let the faster car pass.

CHECKERED FLAG

Thats the end of the Session! Congrats, you made it!
