RACE CARS: (FAST CARS)

At track day I put the quickest cars into Group A. Some of these cars are capable of lap times in the mid to low 50’s on the Sprint track.

These are cars such as the Radical Race Cars, the Porsche Cup Cars, and the Highly Modified R35 GTRs.

We have previously allowed the drivers of these cars to share a driving place with another driver. The second driver has been booked into Group B.

As these cars are so quick, they are much quicker than the cars normally in Group B. This means they are constantly lapping the drivers in Group B, and they are not getting clean laps.

So now instead of sharing the quick cars into Group B, I am asking the drivers to book all day and have one driver in the morning and one in the afternoon or have the drivers take alternate drives in Group A.

We love having the quick cars at the track, and want them to keep coming. We just can't share them with drivers in group B anymore.
