Club Race & Driver's Education at NOLA Motorsports Park in New Orleans.
The last day to register on-line is Monday, September 11th. This event will also be one of the PCA Cayman Club Sport races for 2017.

This is a 3 day event and the original 2.75 circuit with the "esses" will be used. There will be just one DE group for solo drivers only and it will be limited to 50 cars. Open to all makes and model cars. At this time we are offering a 3-day registration, a Saturday/Sunday registration or a single day on Friday. There will be 4 DE sessions each day of approximately 25 to 30 minutes each.

There is also an option to share a car by splitting sessions with a co-driver. The fee for the co-driver is $150, and it includes the Friday night party at Nolasport, Saturday evening dinner, event T-shirt, and box lunches for the same number of days as the primary driver. The co-driver must register separately and indicate the primary driver by listing him/her as a co-driver.

On Friday only we will offer drivers who are new to NOLA the opportunity to have an instructor ride right seat for a few laps in the first or second session to teach the line.

Parade Laps – We will be doing parade laps of the 2.75 mile course from 12:00 to 12:30 each day. $20 per car covers all three days. You will take about 5 laps behind a pace car at normal highway speeds.  Passengers are allowed. See Event Options.

Be sure to keep your personal info up to date, especially your email address and Emergency Contact info. Go to the Main Menu Tab and select Edit Profile. Also, when choosing a car number, please check the roster first to see if your number is already taken.
