NCM Thread??

Although there is a drag racing thread, I did not see a thread about NCM.

I know a few of us are interested in making a turn here and there.

How does this event work? Do you follow a pace car or is everyone out there on their own after some instructions?

Each Novice driver will have a ride along coach with them if Hooked On Driving has enough instructors to go around otherwise it maybe a coach in a lead car and everyone follows. Intermediate and Advance will go out on their own when the track goes hot.

Lead-Follow is extremely difficult on this track, as if you are third/fourth car, you never get to see the lines the instructors are on. Or when they are braking or accelerating, but that doesn't impact the fun you are having.

But at the same time, I had a freakin blast and would do it again as a novice. Get in your car, go have fun!!

Only problem I had in Novice A was a guy in a turbo car would never give a wave around and he was definitely slower never got over 55 mph. Thinking about intermediate or Novice B.

Transponder rental

Could transponders be made available for run groups C and D?

If it happens again come in and ask for some space instead of having a conga line like I saw a lot of last year

It's a standard practice if you end up in a train to roll thru pit lane. This will give you some space behind the train when you get back on track.
Also most of the events I've done are self-policing. If you have a problem with how someone is driving it's up to you to talk to them in a NON-CONFRONTATIONAL manner. Sometimes the individuals don't realize they're doing what you're seeing or they just don't know any better.

At some tracks the corner workers will black flag a car for not pointing by others and at other tracks you're on your own (see above).

You make a good point didnt think about that, I believe he may have been under the impression of no passing or was scared to take his hands off the wheel to do a wave around.

Ms Ruby definitely wants a ride-a-long coach! The guy I had last year was awesome & getting to ride with him was also a blast. Can't wait!

Helmet came today. Guess I'm committed now. Drag, NCM or both?
