AROSC HPDE/Time Trials/Races/Enduro Buttonwillow May 14-15

Post by Slaysman » Fri Apr 08, 2011 6:00 pm

Join AROSC at Buttonwillow Raceway for our May event. We have lots of run groups, including High Performance Driver Education (HPDE), Time Trials/Time Attack, Wheel to Wheel racing, and our annual 2 hour Endurance race. You will get about 2 hours of track time each day. Buttonwillow has great facilities, including RV parking, garage rentals, excellent cafe, showers, a go-kart track, and more. The grassy areas are perfect for pitching a tent/umbrella and relaxing between runs. The 3-story tower offers a great vantage point to see the whole track, especially the Endurance race.

Our run groups:
- HPDE: For people who have not driven on the track before or who are uncomfortable driving solo. This will be a highly controlled driving training environment, including classroom and in-car instruction.
- Solo Group: Passing only on straights and only with a point-by. This is for people with roughly 1 to 7 track days or who think they would be uncomfortable with less restrictive passing.
- Point-By Group: Passing is allowed anywhere on track but only with a point-by. This is for people who have about 7 to 20 track days.
- Open Passing Group: This is for people with 20-plus track days or drivers with race or race school experience.
- Race: Wheel to wheel racing action
- Enduro: Our annual 2 hour endurance race on Saturday. You can drive it all yourself, or with up to two other co-drivers. Entry fee is for the car, regardless of team size. This year’s Endurance event will run from 4 PM to 6 PM, and will include a qualifying session on Saturday afternoon.

All makes & models welcome!
