It is! My advice is
1. to do the walk through(obviously)
2. take your first run SLOW (as painful as that is to do)
3. Try to identify the few tricky parts and remind yourself which way to look
4. Ride along with other people as much as you can early to learn it better, or take an instructor who will yell directions to you. NJBMWCCA allows this but I hear SCCA does not.
