Run Groups


THE RUN GROUPS

VIA (Novice)

“Via” or “street” is the run-group dedicated to novices, and members interested in participating in a very controlled environment. This run-group is a helmet free introductory group. The format will be a paced, three designated passing zones session, with instructors. The intent is to bolster confidence, learn the track, and enjoy the experience.

Via will run two sessions in the morning, and two in the afternoon, as an introduction to the track. One classroom session will be scheduled at the start of the day, and another before the second run. There will be three passing Zones for this Event.

This group is structured as an introduction to running on the track. Simple concepts and description of the track will be presented, in classroom format, before the cars are released.

The charge for members attending Via - $420. There will be plenty of time to socialize and interact with others attending other track programs.

SCUOLA (Intermediate/ Advanced)

“Scuola” or “School” is the run-group dedicated to members interested in participating in our regular performance driving school format. This is open to intermediate to early advanced drivers. This is a “helmet only” group with instructors, and three designated passing zones.

Scuola will run two 20-minute sessions in the morning and two 20-minute sessions in the afternoon.

Scuola group members may run extra sessions in the Misti group if the drivers don't mind running with other marques in a mixed skill level group. This bonus can almost double the track sessions for Scuola group members!

There will be three passing zones for this Event.

Two mandatory classroom sessions will be scheduled during the first half of the day.

The charge for members attending Scuola - $450.

We welcome members who normally would be attending a full driving school. Instructors will be required to ensure participants are encouraged during the event, introduced to the run-group structure and the Piloti program, and surveyed for feedback. Drivers can be signed off in this group.

PILOTI (Advanced Lapping)

“Piloti” or “performance driver” is the run-group dedicated to members interested in participating in longer, instructor-free, driving sessions. This group is selected on the basis of high degree of skill and safety on the track. There are a set of parameters which must be met, in order to qualify attending this group. This group has achieved a high skill level based on an instruction profile developed for Scuola participants

I encourage long-time track participants, who have been signed off, to apply for this group. New members must earn an invitation by instructor recommendation, and evaluation on the track. Instructor evaluation sheets and defined performance levels will define the members of this group. Cars in this group will be monitored on the track by circulating instructor car(s), to ensure quality driving. Periodic use of the optional instructor time is recommended to maintain and sharpen the driving skill set.

This is a helmet, driving suit, and fire extinguisher, group. Piloti will run two 20 minute sessions in the morning and three 20 minute sessions in the afternoon. In addition, we present the option to run extra sessions in the Instructor group for those drivers who do not mind running in mixed marques. Keep a sharp eye for fast traffic.

Piloti Group has a pass anywhere policy except between corners 5a-5b, between corners 8-10, and at the apex of the corners. Passing is only by "point by" invitations only.

The charge for members attending Piloti - $475. This will be track intensive, and we hope to attract members who have been going elsewhere for their track experiences.

The Misti Group

The Misti group was created for FCA members to bring their "other" cars to the track event. This group is the only group reserved for FCA members ONLY.

This group has strict rules for attendance. Please contact me before you register for this group (see contact info below). You must be an FCA member in good standing, and we will not accept outsiders, or remote relations, for this particular group.

The Misti group is open to all marques of cars. They must have a recent tech inspection and a completed tech form, before they arrive at the track. We will not allow cars that have not had a full tech inspection (at their preferred mechanic) on the track. No form>>>No track.

This is a run-group dedicated to FCA members interested in participating in our regular performance driving school format with their "other" cars. This group is open to intermediate to early advanced drivers. We do not prefer NEW drivers in this group, as this is a mixed skill level group. Inexperienced drivers will jam up the session. Please note that there will be more advanced drivers in this group that will need to be allowed to pass. Keep an eye on your mirrors for these cars. NO PASSING WITHOUT A POINT BY

This is a “helmet only” group with instructors, and three designated passing zones.

The Misti group is also a mixed skill level group. There may also be a wide range of skill levels and horsepower. Please watch your rear view mirror for faster cars. Waving blue flags are a reminder that there is a faster car wanting to pass you. Drivers not allowing cars to pass will be receiving the dreaded black flag, and be required to return to pit lane for a chat.

Misti will run two 20 minute sessions in the morning and two 20 minute sessions in the afternoon.

Two mandatory classroom sessions will be scheduled during the first half of the day.

The charge for members attending Misti - $450.

Scuola group members may run extra sessions in the Misti group if they don't mind running with other marques in a mixed skill level group. So, there may be Ferrari and Maserati cars on track with you.

 

Family Touring

Here is an opportunity for any FCA member, or participant, to take family members and friends on a relaxed tour of CTMP. Helmets are not required and speed will be strictly controlled by pace cars.

This touring session will be available to all drivers already registered in any of the groups.

In addition, any FCA member not registered for the day may also participate in this touring session provided that he/she visits the registration desk in the morning, signs a special waiver and obtains a special touring driver wristband before proceeding to the staging area (charge $100/car). Only current paid-up FCA members, or exempt drivers, will be accepted on this basis.

Any passengers wishing to participate in the session must be sponsored by a driver and must also visit the registration desk in the morning to sign a special waiver and obtain a special touring passenger wristband.

There will be a charge TBD per car, for attendants not registered for the track event. Track program participants have this included in their packages. This will be collected at the track when the wristbands and windshield stickers are distributed.

This new policy is necessary to contribute to the growing expenses incurred putting on these events.  A strict wrist band policy will be enforced. NO WRIST BAND >>>> NO TRACK.

THERE IS NO PASSING DURING THE FAMILY TOURING SESSION!
