How am I assigned to a run group?
Run group assignments are made by the chief instructor based on demonstrated speed (at earlier schools) or on anticipated speed (predicted in part by experience level and the capabilities of the car). The objective of dividing students into run groups is to minimize the speed differential among students on the track in a particular session. This reduces the need for passing and the frustration of being caught behind slower drivers or the pressure of being overtaken repeatedly by faster drivers. Instead, you will be able to concentrate more on your own driving, and your day will be more productive as a result. Remember that assignment to a particular run group is not a badge of honor, but is a simple administrative division. You may request a particular run group assignment, but the chief instructor will make the final decision.
