The starting point for new drivers. Classroom discussions are centered around the fundamentals of driving on track to include: flags – their meaning and recognition, track protocol – how to handle an unexpected circumstance, the “rules of the road,” and the fundamental skills of driving a car at a higher level than many have ever done. We ask that regardless of your level of experience – if you haven’t been on the specific track of our event – you start in Novice until you are familiar with the track, we are familiar with you, and we can promote you to more advanced groups during the day as appropriate. Novice drivers will generally be provided an APEX coach to ride “shotgun” with them and guide them through the first few runs. Our goal will be to sign you off as “OK to solo” but we will always be available to coach you if you want to continue to improve. Novice drivers are usually first-timers to 5 track days.
