Description Florida Citrus Region is hosting another PCA/Motorsport Safety Foundation Instructor School (10/12) and DE (10/13-14) at Roebling Road Raceway, near Savannah GA. Descriptions of the Instructor School and DE are separate below. Please read both and then register separately for each. Attendees to the School will receive substantial fee reductions for the following DE. 

Direct links to both are:


The event begins on Friday as an Instructor School. Successful Candidates will be granted Level 2 Certification from Motorsport Safety Foundation as well as membership in the PCA corpse of instructors. 

The school is intended for:
* Solo drivers seeking to become DE instructors;
* Current PCA instructors wanting to be certified by Motorsport Safety Foundation;
* Solo drivers looking for lots of open track time;
* Solo drivers that are considering whether or not to become an instructor may attend the school as "observers". They may participate in all classes and exercises, but will not be Candidates.

All drivers in the school must have at least 4 solo events and Candidates must have at least 4 solo events with open passing with a point.  All must have equal seats and seat belts for 2 occupants. Mentors will drive Candidate cars for all school exercises.

All candidates will be sent an on-line course with critical information. The course must be successfully completed prior to attending the school. No exceptions. 

The School is heavy on role playing and classroom participation. We will alternate between role playing on and off the track, with lots of track time. Candidates can use this day to learn the art of teaching high performance driving as well as to converse with experienced driving Instructors. Instructors can practice and sharpen skills in a small group setting. Instructors and solo drivers will enjoy open track sessions while Candidates are in class.

Candidates successfully completing the course will be eligible for National PCA DE Instructor Corps Membership as well as Level 2 MSF Certification, and should instruct at the 10/13-14 DE. Only a limited number of Candidates will be accepted.

Don't miss this opportunity to sharpen your driving and teaching skills. For more specific info contact one of us, as below.

DE 10/13-14/2018:

A High Performance Drivers Education event will also be held on Oct. 13-14, 2018 at Roebling Road Raceway. Register separately at the link above.

This is a 2 day driving event focused on developing high performance driving skills for all drivers. Instructors will be provided for all students in the Green (novice)and Blue (advanced novice) groups. Space is limited to 22 drivers for student run groups, and 25 for solo groups. The event will fill up early, so sign up now.


MEDICAL: HPDE events expose participants to mental stress, high acceleration, braking and turning, as well as the possibility of high temperatures, loud noises and vibration. For safety, you should be in good health and free from untreated high blood pressure, heart, back or neck problems, motion sickness, or other conditions that could be aggravated by participation in this type of event. Contact your physician if you have questions about your participation.

GATE HOURS: Gates will be open at 5:00 pm Thursday, 10/11 and will remain open until 6:00 pm Sunday, 10/14. Camping is allowed for a fee. Remember quiet hours are 8:00 pm to 8:00 am every day. No loud motors. Also, do not drive trailers on Ziegler Rd. Rather, continue on Rte. 80 past Ziegler Rd. and turn right on Rte. 17 for about 2 miles and turn right onto Roebling Road to the track. 

TECH AND REGISTRATION: Registration and tech for the School will be at the track Friday morning. Registration for the DE will be at the hotel on Friday starting about 6:00 pm until 8:00 pm, and at track on Saturday morning 7:00 am to 7:30 am. Tech for "trailer" cars will be at the track on Friday evening and Saturday morning. "Street" cars may be teched at the track, or at the Country Inn starting Friday at about 6-7 pm, or at the track Saturday morning 7:00 am to 7:30. Again, remember, no loud motors at RRR during quiet times (8:00 pm to 8:00 am), and 11:00 am to 12:00 pm Sunday. Strictly enforced by RRR management.

HOTEL AND SOCIALS: The host hotel is the Country Inn and Suites, Savannah Airport, 21 Yvette Johnson Hagins Dr., phone 912-966-1717. Reserve early and mention Florida Citrus – PCA to get the special rate of $89+ per day. This is a very busy weekend in Savannah, so hotels will fill up. 
In addition to track events your admission also includes a social Friday evening at the Country Inn. Lots of pizza, wings, beer, wine, and good times. Also, enjoy a fantastic dinner bash at the hotel Saturday evening. Excellent menu, more great beer, and lots of bench racing. Cost is $30. Please sign up while registering. Questions, please contact or 970-406-2090.

HARNESSES AND RESTRAINTS: Starting January 1, 2019, the DE Minimum Standards will be expanded to state that if a driver uses a harness system, he or she will ALSO be required to utilize a head and neck restraint system, commonly referred to as a HANS device.  A head and neck restraint device is an integral part of the harness system. Because the rule of equal restraint always applies, if a driver uses a harness system there must also be a harness system available and used by the passenger. Thus, both the driver and passenger will be required to use a HANS device. We highly encourage all DE participants to not wait until 2019 to comply with this new minimum standard. Head and neck restraint system devices are now more affordable and easily purchased online.  Contact Linda at Apex Performance 866-505-2739.  She is an expert in fitting helmets and restraints.

CAMPING. RV/Camping on grounds at RRR is available for a flat fee of $50 for 2-3 nights, plus the RRR fee for electricity usage. See "Options" to register.

ENABLE TEXT MESSAGING: We may need to send text messages during the event with important information. Please be sure to enable text messaging in your clubreg profile.

RIDE ALONGS: PCA regulations severely limit “Taste of the Track” ride alongs for non-driving students.  Such rides must be at low speed and without helmets.  Instructors may offer ride alongs to driving students in a run group one step higher than the student’s group.  For example, an instructor may give a ride along to a blue student in the white group.  During such student ride along, the instructor must drive at speeds appropriate to the run group and must obey the passing rules for that group.

See you soon.
