Autobahn Racing License School to be held on Wednesday April 10th at 9:00 am

Completion of this school is a prerequisite for obtaining an Autobahn Racing License which will allow you to participate in our Member Racing Series. This school is designed for both the member with no previous race experience and the member who has previous experience.  However, if you are a novice driver, completion of this course may not qualify you to take part in the NASA school if you are interested in that, this will be reviewed by NASA on a case by case basis. Full safety equipment and a race prepared car are required to participate in this school. For more information on the class or requirements for a license please contact Tom Bagley [email protected] or Tony Kester [email protected] .

Tom and Tony Have a New Address

For all of you looking for an instructor this year, this green door is the door you will need to enter to find Tom Bagley and Tony Kester.  This is also the location that you and your guest drivers should visit for guest driver orientation.

For your guests to experience a full day of track activity, it is best to be on time or slightly early for the 8:30 am orientation.  This will allow Tom and Tony time to give them all the guidance and information they will need to receive their green band and get out on track and have a great time.  We appreciate your cooperation and look forward to serving both you and your guests in 2019.

Reminder for all Team Unit Owners
