Chin Motorsports HPDE Track Days
The Chin Motorsports TracQuest format
Our track event model is based on lower enrollment, fewer run groups, and more track
time. Our trademark TracQuest format utilizes only 3 run groups. All drivers are
classified according to experience. For newly enrolled members, be sure to provide
a summary of your experience to us via email, before you register for an event.
During the event day, groups rotate sessions on track every 30 minutes. And, every
Chin Motorsports track event features a popular "all drivers open track" session
in the final hour of the day. Our typical daily event schedule provides for about
3.5 hours time on track.
The 3 scheduled sessions are:
GREEN: Entry-level drivers who will have an assigned instructor providing
in-car coaching. Also, drivers that have only recently received a solo qualification
are classified in the green group (solo - yellow). And, an experienced driver that
may be visiting an unfamiliar track will drive in the green group until safely oriented
to the new track. Passing rules in the green group require a point-by signal, and
passing zones are restricted to straightaways only.
BLUE: Intermediate solo. Drivers that have substantial experience and have
earned a valid solo qualification are classified in Blue. Drivers at this level
have visited several different road courses, and have received numerous days of
in-car coaching/on-track instruction. The driver has already satisfied solo qualification
protocols with well-established programs like Chin. Passing requires a point-by
signal, and passing zones are unrestricted.
RED: Advanced solo. Our top classification includes drivers with years of
experience and thousands of laps (typically 50+ track days at a minimum) at numerous
different tracks. The driver's road course skills and traffic management are now
instinctive, and the driver has superior situational awareness. Drivers at this
level are comfortable with side-by-side conditions, passing anywhere on track, driving
off-line, and promptly yielding to faster traffic. Qualification for the RED group
of Chin Motorsports requires an on-track driver evaluation by one of our senior
instructors. Passing requires a point-by signal, and passing zones are unrestricted.
In the typical TracQuest format, over 3 hours of scheduled track time is available
each day of an event. Groups will rotate on 30 minute sessions. Please see the detailed
schedule that is linked at the bottom of any event details page of our website.
Street cars and fully prepared race cars alike are welcome.
Also, some Chin Motorsports TracQuest events feature optional gourmet catering options
for lunch and/or dinner.
