Overview This event will have in attendance up to three Professional Coaches for the duration of the event. They have been hand selected by Lee Carpentier (Lee’s info can be found at https://www.advancemotorsports.racing/ & https://www.imsa.com/driver/lee-carpentier) and members of the NER DE Team to specifically work with attending Solo drivers and PCA Instructors;
Before the event, all Solo Students will be required to set personal goals for the three day event and share those with the Pro Coaches and lead NER Instructors. In that way, we can assimilate your goals with a series of personalized in-car sessions. Too, all solo students will have a series of things to accomplish before even arriving at the track;
During the event – there will be four 30 minute “Instructed Sessions” each day where both Instructed students and Solo students (with a pro coach or NER Instructor) will share the track and can work on various aspects of both the track and driver training. These sessions will be run at typical Yellow Run Group pace, and affords Solo drivers a slower paced opportunity to work on a one-on-one basis with someone in the “right seat”;
The remaining track time during the day will be “Open Track” where Solo students can be paired with the Pro Coach or Instructor at their own driving pace – or of course, drive solo to work on their own goals. There will be at least fours hours of “Open Track” per day;
There will be a mandatory classroom each day during lunch (which John is working on to be locally catered?!). These classes will be taught by the attending Pro Coaches and NER Instructors;
There will be a mandatory classroom & debrief when the track goes cold at the end of the first two days (liquid refreshments will be served). These sessions are designed to wrap up the day's events and set goals for the following day;
During certain times, we will be holding a series of “On Track” driver exercises including passing skills, braking exercises, trail braking, corner entry and exit speed drills, etc.
During the event, we will also have corner “spotters” working at various times. They will share their observations both personally and in the general classrooms.
Catered breakfasts and lunches are available each day of this event. These are highly recommended as there will be classroom activities during those times that you won’t want to miss by having to run out for something to eat. The cost for this convenience is a mere $60 for the event ($20 per day) and includes a bonus (beer!) to enjoy at the end of each track day while debriefing with the pro coaches.
Cancellation & Refund Policies:
Cancellations more than one month before the event will receive a full refund.
Cancellations one month to two weeks before the event will receive a refund less the ClubReg handling fee.
There is no refund for cancellation two weeks or less prior to the event. An exception may be made at the discretion of the registrar and/or track chair and will be made only if your slot can be filled from the appropriate run group waiting list or if circumstances dictate. The refund may be in the form of credit for a future NER DE event.
There is no refund for a stopped event once a car has been on the track.
There is no refund for those who do not come to the track if we are unable to start the event. Partial refunds may be available to those who come to the track if we are unable to start the event.
Refunds may be subject to the ClubReg service fee.
When to register:
In most cases registration for all NER DE events opens on March 1st.
As a general word of warning, be aware that both NER and NCR accept entries on a first-come, first-served basis (based on the date paid). This year there will be greater demand for most events; we fully expect that some will sell out early. Although you cannot register before registration opening day, we strongly suggest you register as early as possible after March 1st (for NER events) to avoid disappointment. This is particularly important for the Green & Yellow student groups as the number admitted to any event is dependent upon the number of instructors signing up. It's also very important for all drivers wishing to attend the Mont-Tremblant event in July as only 30 cars are allowed on the track at any time (a maximum of 150 cars for the event). Student drivers, the earlier you sign up and pay the more likely you are to be confirmed for the event.
Other important information about registration:
Though NER and NCR are entirely separate and distinct regions, we’ve done our best to coordinate our policies and procedures to make the DE season as seamless as possible. Even so, please familiarize yourself with the host region's policies and protocols by reading the host region’s policies as found on their individual web sites. Do not assume the rules you are accustomed to with your home region will be the same as those of other regions. Your standard operating procedure should be to check the DE pages of any region's event you are attending far enough in advance to allow compliance with their policies (which may change from year to year).
A few NER registration caveats:
Registration closes approximately 2 weeks prior to an event:
Signing up for an event without paying is not a full registration. Until your payment is received, either by check or electronically, you are NOT registered and a space will NOT be held for you in the event.
If you pay after the 2-week cut-off or at the event with permission of the registrar, you may be subject to a $25 / day event surcharge.
All registrations will normally be for the entire event. A driver wishing to register for fewer days than the entire event may have to pay a $25 / day surcharge.
Instructors are urged to register early to allow us to admit as many student drivers as possible.
All of the above surcharges are at the discretion of the Track Chair, Registrar and/or Chief Instructor and will be determined by the individual circumstances of each event.
