Honing your high performance driving skills in the relative safety of a closed track is always enjoyable plus the experience makes you a better street driver. High performance driving in your AMG Mercedes is all about learning car control – concentration, vision, familiarity with your car, its responses to your inputs, and your reactions to its responses. Note this is NOT a racing event! It is a safety, control and opportunity to enjoy driving your car.

 

Additional registration information on this website.
Fee for the event is $225 (limited to 25 entries).

Book your hotel room soon; rooms are extremely limited.
