I will also need to know the car you will be driving, your previous track experience and your preference for a run group.

Group A - First time or inexperienced drivers

Group B - Intermediate experience level. Know racing line, capable of running consistent fast laps

Group C - Fastest Group. Experienced drivers who can run very quickly at Thunderhill. More aggressive passing rules.

If you have a car number preference, let me know that, too.

You'll get at least 2 hours of track time, broken into 30 minute intervals over the day, along with "debrief" sessions with Q&A, feedback, etc. from experienced race drivers.

Groups A & B will run the short 1.7 mile, 9 turn course at first, then work up to the whole track later in the day. Group C will run the full 3 mile 15 turn track configuration. There is no racing, just an opportunity to drive your car fast in a safe environment.

Instructors will be available. Passengers are OK. Group 1 drivers need an OK from an instructor before taking a passenger out on the track.

Your car does not need to be modified or race prepared. You'll need typical highway safety equipment and a helmet. Your car does need to pass a technical inspection, which is performed at the track.

Thunderhill is located near the town of Willows, about 70 miles north of Sacramento on Highway 5. More information and directions on Thunderhill's website at http://www.thunderhill.com The track is open at 7:00 AM. Participants need to be there before 7:30 to get their cars inspected. Drivers meeting will begin at 8:30, and we will be on the track by 9.

If you have questions, please contact me at [email protected] or at 415-455-9192
