    So, the first thing to note is that COTA's special conditions create the necessity to charge a track fee to instructors. Unfortunately, the traditional precedent of giving a comp entry to instructors is not possible for this specific event. Instructors that are selected will receive a discount of 80% off of the posted track fees of $999, a discount of $800.
  • SELECTION: Obviously, only a limited number of instructors will be accepted. That quota is 25 instructors. We've already received numerous inquiries; it's certain that the interest will exceed the availability. So, Instructor registration WILL NOT BE first come/first served. Instead, we ask all interested instructors to SEND AN EMAIL to apply for instructor status, but DO NOT REGISTER YET.
    >> If you are a new applicant, IT IS MANDATORY to provide a detailed summary of your track experience and instructor history. Send to
    >>If you are a currently qualified instructor with Chin Motorsports, we already have your history of track days and instructor experience.
    Once we have a large enough pool of instructor applicants, we will select the top 25 instructors, and those instructors will be invited to register for the heavily discounted track fee of $399.
    >>When to apply? DO IT NOW! Applications are being accepted. Send an email to
  • CRITERIA: This pool of applicants will no doubt have a very high median level of experience. So, if you have fewer than 60 days overall on track, and less than 20 days instructor experience, do not waste your time to apply. Only instructors whose experience exceeds those minimum thresholds will be considered. Having prior on-track experience at COTA is helpful, but not mandatory. We know that there is not that many instructors who have already driven there. And, we know that many lifetime veteran instructors have the capacity to adapt rapidly to the lap on their first visit and be effective instructors. So, there will be some exceptions to the Chin standard practice that prior experience is required on a particular lap to be eligible to instruct.

Online registration begins on Monday, June 2nd, 10pm EDT

Drive Well, The management
