There are 4 Runs groups:
Assertive (A) - Run at RA a lot
Advanced (B) - Run at RA several times
Intermediate (C) - Run at RA before but don't want to push the car to much
Novice (D) - Never Run at RA before or just want to take it easy going around the track

You get 4 or 5 20 minute sessions out on the track each day.

If you have never Run at RA before, then sign up in Novice and an instructor will be assigned to ride with you your first couple sessions out on the track

Lets say saturday I am novice, but then on sunday could I be at least advanced?


btw email me a forum to josh11778@sbcglobal.net
Also was just looking at the requirements, pretty much just a Snell 2000 aproved helmet?

Looks like it is time to get on forza2 with a vette and practice, LOL!

Yes you can move groups if you would like (once the instructor signs off that you can run on your own without him in the car), you would just have to see the tech folks and they can change the group that you will be running in.

As long as the helmet is SN 2000 or newer you will be fine.

Sending you an email now

Well folks.....unless we start getting some registrations being sent in within the next 2 weeks the MFBA may be forced to Cancel the Fall Event and any Future Road America Rentals So if you would like to see the event continue please send in your registrations.

Road America is a 4 mile road course. There are some pretty long straights where you can carry a lot of speed if you wish to.

This is a great oppurtunity everyone. Don't miss your chance to take some high speed laps on a world class road course. Here are my pictures from my trip to the American Le Mans Series race at Road America.
