So Cal Track Event

If youíre an experienced track junkie, all you need to know is: 3+ hours of track time, free lunch, low price.

If youíre new to the track, this event is going to be perfect for you. Just bring your car and a helmet (helmet rental will be available for $15 if you donít have one).

Youíll get to experience what your car can really do in a safe and controlled environment. After we go through a short classroom session weíll hit the skid pad for some braking and cornering exercises, then jump on the track for a day of instruction and lapping. Youíll have an instructor with you for as long as you want. They wonít let you out on your own until you are both comfortable with it, donít worry. Just leave your ego at home, because your first day on the track will be humbling. It doesnít matter how great of a driver you are on the street, or how many times youíve stormed the canyons, youíll be amazed at how capable your car really is.

The price of $195 includes lunch and a $15 credit to the race shop. You can grab some souvenirs, or if the track bug bites, you can put that credit towards gloves, a helmet or other racing gear.

If youíre nervous about your first time on the track, please feel free to email the club. Weíre here to help and to make you more comfortable with the experience.

Sign up below and Pay via Paypal to secure your spot. Once we get confirmation of your registration and your payment, your registration status will change from ďpendingĒ and youíll get an email about it too.

The event is actually put on by the track management themselves and they are providing instructors. There are also a couple experienced instructor who are club members and I know at least one of them is attending.

Sounds like a great event. Having an instructor in the car is very helpful. Haven't had a chance in the Elise yet, but I had tracked my Golf R a fair bit. My very first session ever at Laguna Seca was awesome thanks to the instructor's knowledge and direction. Highly recommended.
