DRIVERS MEETING

At 11:45 AM there will be a mandatory drivers’ meeting for all registered participants. The meeting usually lasts about twenty minutes and covers information that is important for the safety of all drivers. Procedures, flags, rules, and track information will all be covered. Any drivers not in attendance will not be allowed on the track and refunds will not be given.

FLAGS

Pay attention to flag stations when you drive by them. It’s the only way we can communicate with you. Your instructors will show you where these stations are on the initial laps. 

All participants must understand and follow all flagging procedures.

  • Green Flag: Track is hot, drivers are on the course
  • Checkered Flag: The session is over. Exit the track at Pit In on this lap.
  • Yellow Flag: Something is happening ahead that requires attention. Pay attention and be alert for a potential hazard. 
  • Red Flag: The session has to be stopped immediately. Put on your hazard lights, ease off the throttle and slowly come to a complete stop at the next corner station.  Follow the instructions of the corner workers once you come to a full stop.
  • Black Flag: If the black flag is displayed to you, there is an issue with your car or your driving that is serious enough to warrant having you pull off the track. The black flag is displayed by the corner worker pointing at you.  If you are black-flagged, come back to the hot pits and one of our staffs will chat with you and tell you what was wrong with either your driving or your car.

  • No timing.
  • 95db static noise limit.
