We’ve put together a few promotions for the 2018 season. Registration opens at Motorsportsreg.com on March 1st.
Did you see Jeff Torrey’s “Spring is a Long Time Coming” article in the November-December Northlander? He was a first timer last fall and for those of you that are considering driving your Porsche on the track, Jeff’s words might have a ring of familiarity to them.
This spring the Driver’s Education Team at NCR is looking for a few more First Timers. If you have never attended one of our Driver’s Education events we are discounting your event fee by 50 percent when you register for your first event.
Come on out and see if you enjoy it as much as Jeff did.
Are you feeling lucky?
We are adding an incentive for those of you that use these cold, dark days of winter to plan where you will spend the bright, light days of spring, summer and fall. Anyone that registers for our Spring Opener on March 1st will be entered into a drawing to be held at the drivers meeting at NHMS on April 21st. One driver’s name will be drawn from a helmet. That individual will attend the event free.
Let’s repeat that. Register for our Spring Opener on March 1st, attend the drivers meeting, have your name drawn from the helmet, you attend the event for free!
Every one that registers for and attends all the days of our events in 2018 will receive a 10 percent discount. As the schedule below shows, that’s a free day at the track in 2018.
Spring is a long time coming

This past October I decided it was time for me to spend a day driving at an NCR DE event. I had done the Car Control Clinic, and the Charity Laps for Make-a-Wish. Those experiences were nothing but positive, so I decided to give it a try.
From a distance the DE program looked to me like a place for “race car drivers”. Folks that wanted to take their car out and thrash it around the track. So I was a bit intimidated. Not trusting myself with my car at high speeds, not trusting my reflexes with such an expensive car. A car that I enjoy driving in its “present condition”. I had signed up for the Monday driving and watched the weather. As luck would have it Monday proved to be a rain day. In my mind I flip flopped back and forth. Should I cancel, or should I go anyway. If I cancel there are no refunds. But if I lose traction in the rain and smash my car, that would prove to be a huge loss. Crashing my car was the last thing I would want to happen. Knowing many of the people who produce the DE program for NCR, I decided to go for the day in spite of the rain. I had to trust that these guys would help me avoid a crash, trust that their instruction would prevent me from having a problem on the track.
