I could be mistaken but I didn't see a registration fee listed anywhere on that page, yet they give you an address to mail the cheque to...?

^ Don't worry, 400 bhp on 275/40/18 is the standard ! You need a few more injectors

This course is highly recommended to anyone wanting to improve their general driving skills and learn the limits of their car... on pavement that is. This is not just for people wanting to get a novice racing license. I did it a few years ago and would do it again except the price seems a little steep for a second go round. I only paid $300 at the time. Everyone should do it once.

I'd do it but for $480 (plus tax right?) I'd rather buy a body kit for the car.

I think that the course is more for fun than education/improving skills.

b/w why do you need to have a driver's licence at a closed race course? And why do convertables have to have an approved roll cage/bar? M3 comes with those things that jump out of the rear head rests in case on an accident, and work just like a roll cage/bar, from the manufacturer.

That's actually even better... The Victoria Motorsports Club holds driver's training a couple times a year, they have a 3 day event too and it's only $100-$200 I believe. I wanted to do it for like 4 years in a row but I could never get time off work... I'd jump on that.

I'm just not baller enough right now to whip out $480 like it ain't no thang

You need a driver's license because...ummm...you need to be at least 16 years old to operate a vehicle? ALso, I would NOT go into a course, regardless of supervision, with someone who did not have their driver's license.

Convertibles need an approved roll bar because if your car flips, the roll bar protects your head. I'd hate to see somebody die on the track. I have a rollbar on my car, but is not SCAA approved, but I'll just put on the hardtop.

Does anybody know how often this course is offered? And what can be had with a novice license?

offered again in june derek.

novice license lets u race wheel to wheel, but you gotta do either 5 or 10 races with ur jr novice license and FINISH it (you will be watched by some senior members iirc). then you can move on up.

and anyone who's considering this, DO IT! they teach you pass going into corners, blahblahblah.. and on the final day, you get to run a simulated race .. meaning passing EVERYWHERE is allowed.. not your regular max 3 zones, etc.

Hope my new boss & my bank a/c will let me do this with 5zigen. A few friends took this school before and it's quite different from just HPDE events as they said. May I know what kinda helmet we needed to use slowguy? Coz my M95 full face is getting too old. I must get a new one this year for auto-x & lapping events.

Spent too much time working last year so missed too much fun. Not gonna dump anymore $ on mods but on seat time and maintainence from now on.

Do T-tops count as soft tops?

I've been looking for more reasons to cage the car, this could be a good one.

Well the only way it's diff from HPDE's is basically the exercises you do .. ie @ mission, they make you do t1-2 with a guy @ each corner to critique you.. then you move onto 4-5-6 etc etc.. and as mentioned before, you can pass anywhere on the race day .. it's a really good venue to improve your skills though (particularly at mission only imo)

as for my helmet, i used an SA2000 helmet last yr. they didnt allow motorcycle helmets.. i'm surprised some of the venues you attended allowed motorcycle helmets! (M is same as MA right? )

Yeah that's right I was using my M95 before while some ppl use M2000 or SA rated helmets when I went to Proformance's events down at Pacific Raceway. It really depends on which club is hosting the lapping event I guess. Those I went to are pretty much lapping events which passing is only allowed with "point-by" in the specific passing zones. Which is totally fine for me. I'm out there to learn and enjoy.

It would be a lot more fun if I take such a course down at PR due to the elevation changes(up & downhill turns etc).

Anyway I would look into some SA rated helmets this time I think.

I have a set of Hoosier race tires to sell (205.45.16) for anyone that wants their WRX to do a similar lap time to an STI. They were heat cycled and used for less than 10 minutes on some class winning autox runs. Their first time out my GC8 2.5RS was 2nd fastest overall on the day (to the Phantom!). Cheapest way to set really fast lap times in a WRX. Email or PM if you are interested (not checking the forum that much these days).

No, sorry. Cheap HID bulb retrofits in reflector housings are a hazard on the street and certainly not welcome at a race track.
