Talking 2014 Camaro5 HPDE @ Gingerman Raceway: You're Invited!

It's that time again...And if you can't make it to the Camaro5 Fest in Texas, this might be a good "other" opportunity for you to come hang out with some Camaro5 people for some good fun and racing!
WHEN: August 4th, 2014. 9am - 5pm

WHERE: Gingerman Raceway (61414 County Road 388, South Haven Charter Township, MI 49090)

WHO: All Experience Levels welcome! Novices encouraged!

HOW MUCH: $185 (+$50 for Instructors)

WHAT: This is a HPDE, a High Performance Driving Event. But it is also educational for the novice and experienced driver alike! Camaro5 is very excited to have partnered once again with CGI Motorsports to offer a race-day (⅔ reserved for Camaro drivers), where instructors are available, and you get as much track time as you can handle! Participants run for 20 minutes at a time, with a 40-minute rest/cool down time in between runs.

You must bring your own car, prep your own car, and understand that you will be pushing your vehicle past the performance and speed limits it reaches in day-to-day driving. Passing is allowed in certain ares of the track, depending on the class you are in. There will be a mandatory drivers meeting in the morning to explain all of this.

**Automotive Racing helmets are required**

Please read all of the following carefully

We have established a special rate with CGI, and reserved 25 spots for Camaro drivers. If demand exceeds this amount of drivers, we'll look into expanding it. Last year, we had about 20 people participated, and they had a blast. This year, we're looking to grow.

1) You'll need to register using CGI's website, which can be found here:

(Note the famous BeckyD's Bella Diabla ZL1 on the front page!)

2) Scroll to the lower left-hand side of the page and click on "Monday - August 4"

3) Locate the "choose one" Run Group selector, and choose the Group you feel most comfortable with: Novice, Intermediate, Advanced.

**PLEASE NOTE: It is better to choose low if you're unsure, and "graduate" during the day. If you choose "Advanced", for instance, and you fail to demonstrate ability - you will be asked to drive with one of the less experienced Run Groups. Likewise, if you feel you can run with a more advanced group, accommodations may be made. This is not a competition, and there is no peer-pressure to "show off". Drive safe. Most Camaro participants will likely be running in the Novice Group, anyways.

4) Scroll to the bottom of the page, and select whether or not you would like an instructor to be available to you. Instructors will cost an additional $50 for Intermediate and Advanced participants, the cost is INCLUDED with the Novice Run Group Price.

**Please note: Instructors are REQUIRED for Novice drivers. These experienced drivers will coach, guide, and teach you new ways to approach a racetrack with your personal vehicle. They can drive if you prefer, or ride throughout the day. Take advantage of the expertise they provide to improve your performance driving skills!

5) Click "Add to Cart", and Register (If new to CGI) or Log In (If returning from last year)

6) Select that you will be driving at the event, and click "save and continue". Enter your vehicle's information...

7) When you are on the page where you must enter your credit card information, make sure you input the "CAMARO5" Promotional Code in the bottom of the page to ensure you receive Camaro5 pricing, and get included in our reservation count.

If there are any questions, feel free to post them below or PM me - and I would be happy to help in whatever way I can.

Happy Racing, and We'll see you there on the 4th!
