Absolutely, anyone may attend and partake in the paddock activities at no cost: camaraderie with dozens of Mazda owners; tech talk, modifications galore, food, pro shop, all at no costs, except for what you eat. In order to enter the facility you must sign an insurance waiver and best of all, you may DRIVE ON THE RACE COURSE proper in Parade laps at lunch. Parade laps are at normal highway speeds following a pace car. Only Students and Instructors will be able to drive at race speed.
There is no better place to learn how to handle your vehicle is situations that come up fast than in a safe environment with plenty of run off and both in class and in car instruction. Most students experience solo driving after successfully demonstrating basic skills and appropriate on-course behavior. Typically, Ľ to 1/3 of the participants are new, similar abilities are grouped together.
Aside from the track, there is parking lot socializing and group dinners out on the town. The evening headquarters for most of the MDA participants will be the Comfort Inn and Suites (formerly Howard Johnson), in Danville, Virginia, 434-793-2000. Special group rate 1-4 people, $73/night, a block of rooms reserved for Friday, March 26 and Saturday, March 27. One needs to mention "Mazda Drivers" to receive group rate. Just look for all the Mazda’s.
If you have not done a track event before, this is a great opportunity. Not only is this one of the most enjoyable school I had the pleasure of attending last year, but they are safe, fun and I have learn alot from them. The time on track is plenty. The instructors are friendly and answer all the questions you might have. If you do not want to drive on track, just go to enjoy the people and all the cool cars that are going to be there. You can still learn alot and meet some new friends.
I can't say it enough, this is a great event.
