Gainesville Raceway Track Day

I am arranging a private track day at Gainesville Raceway Circuit Course on November 4, 2012. Auto Plus Raceway
The track is roughly 1.2 miles in the configuration we plan to use. We'll have cars of all types there, so please forward this to any enthusiasts that may be interested. It will also be a great place to teach younger drivers to handle their cars at higher performance levels, with a relaxed atmosphere.

I'm selling roughly 16 spots for a full day of track time. We're keeping the number of drivers down so there will be nearly no wait time to drive. We'll go with 10 drivers minimum at $250 per car, but if we get the full 16, the entry fee will go down to approximately $160 per car (I'll refund the difference to each driver). The more drivers, the cheaper it becomes for all of us.

Rules,
4 Cars on the Track at once.
Passing Only in Designated Area, and only when waived on by the leading car (we'll explain when we are there).
Always follow the directions of the Marshall and/or fire-rescue crew (will be on site the whole day).
Street legal cars only.
Valid Drivers license.

Recommendations
Helmets if you have them.
Brakes, have them checked, and/or replace the fluid with AP600 high temp.
Check your tires, make sure there are no visible cords.
Check your insurance policy; drivers are responsible for their cars and person.
Bring some sunscreen, food and drinks with you; we'll get hot and hungry.

Please PM me or call me if you are interested.

You can drive up from South Florida. I'm in Tampa and headed that way, I also have a person coming in from South Carolina. It will be a great day and I still need to fill a few spots. I hope you can come up to join us.

Only 7 spots left. Entry will go down to $190 with the 14th driver and will drop farther as the last spots fill up.

We’re almost full with only 4 spots remaining! To pre-register for the discounted rate at $160 send me a PM or email me and I’ll forward the details to you.
If we have any open spots on the day of the event, onsite registration will cost $200.

Would this be a good idea for someone who has never been on a track before? Not to mention still getting used to the DCT?

We have 6 drivers that have never been on a track before. There will be a limit of 6 cars on track at one time so there's little risk of interference by other drivers. Also, Gainesville Raceway has no guard rails or walls so an accidental slide off the track won't result in losing paint or body panels.

The few of us that have track experience will provide as much instruction as we can to new drivers. You won't find a cheaper day with more track time anywhere.
