Eric,

We met at the Annual Awards dinner in Rocky Hill.  My son, Lucas (Ivan) is signed up for the school on motorsports reg.  I'll be along with him.  I've run a bunch of autocrosses and autocross schools with some other clubs so if you need hand I'd be happy to help.  My first priority will be making sure Lucas is OK, but I'm always willing to lend a hand to make sure these kinds of schools happen.

Just a reminder that both parents need to complete the youth waiver at the track or beforehand (notarized) in order for the under 18 to run. Forms will be available at registration. Eric Krueger

Looking for someone willing to let my daughter, May, drive their FJB kart at the kart school this Saturday. 

She has some experience from last year and if a "rental" fee can be arranged if needed.

Please message me on the forums.

Thanks,

I registered to run in D-Stock as this is a points event. Will we be able to do the school in the A.M. and get in our runs?

Bob, my phone conversation with Eric indicated that the experienced  kids are expected to help the new kids.  We can do our morning and afternoon runs.  Experienced kids will only get afternoon competition runs, and some runs on the school course in the morning.  Drop the kart in the school area in the morning and he will get all the karts to the kart paddock for the afternoon.
