Where exactly is the RX course at Summit?

And is anyone interested in splitting cost of a hotel on Saturday night?

I am on the fence about whether to do just T&T or go to the advanced school. I only have 3 events under my belt and was in the mix with the more experienced drivers in MR, but I know that doing just 1 HPDE in my daily made me aware of so many things that I'd never thought of in all of the autoX events I had done.

Is it an issue to do driver's school with multiple drivers? I co-drive with someone else, so we might need to just do the T&T so that we don't only get 1/2 of the instruction time.

We don't have a back seat, so it isn't even like we can ride along and pick up on pointers at the same time.

Both of you can sign up for the school (either, up to you) and get the full experience. We are not sitting in the car the entire time with you, so you could just switch drivers as needed. Usually it goes instructions to the students, then we hop in the cars and practice it one at a time.

Thanks for the follow up. Like I said, I am on the fence about T&T or ADS because I need seat time, but limited instructed seat time may be more beneficial than lots of uninstructed seat time.

Better to learn the correct way then to develop bad habits! It really is up to you though. Adam K. is the final word, but we (the instructors) have no problems if you only want to go to the school for a little, then head over to the T&T.

Whatever you guys want to do. I can't guarantee you'll immediately be driving if/when you come over to the test/tune.

+ history of WDCR RX
+ Night before camp/hotel accommodations
+ Prepare for a full day outside
+ What's avail at SP
+ How to get involved with mid-atlantic stage rallies
+ All volunteer and your part
+ Why the track and event is formatted as it is - sanctioning requirements
+ Review of event format
+ Useful car mods
+ Course strategies
+ Turn physics
+ Walk a course and discuss what to do and where/when
+ Practice starts and long radius and 90 degree and slalom.

and then plenty of seat time in the PM for practice and ride alongs and ride withs.
I am signed up for the T&T and am a new rallycrosser - would it be OK if my son also attends (but he will not be driving the car) - I want him to learn as I do. It's more for me, but he may join the group mid season and co-drive my car.
