Nelson Ledges: School & FunDay Sept 10th & 11th
« on: August 26, 2011, 02:04:08 pm »
A couple years ago we asked you ( our auto-X crowd ) if you wanted to do a PDX at the Great Pumpkin.  We saw quite a few hands go up to say "yes" at the driver's meeting, but we didn't get enough interest to hold a PDX session.

So to make things simple for us and you we are going to piggy back off of Nelson Ledges own NLU Drivers School and FunDay.  There are fellow WNYers going down from NYSpeed, and a few of us will be going down to test out out LeMons.

Who: you, the driver, no prior track experience necessary
What: driving on a 2.0 mile road course, fast, in your own car*
When: Sept. 10th & 11th
Where: 3 hours away in Ohio
Why: because driving fast on a track is fun

*Car needs no special safety equipment, just factory seat belts, Snell SA or M helmet.  Nelson is very easy on brakes but still I do recommend upgrading to front track pads (Hawk Blue, Carbotech XP10, etc.) and high temp fluid (ATE superblue, Motul RBF600).  Other than that if your car is auto-X worthy, it probably is track worthy.

General Information
We, here at Nelson, want your FunDays experience to be as pleasant as possible and we take every precaution to ensure that. We ask that all FunDays participants adhere to the following general rules in addition to our FunDays driving rules.

    Absolutely no aggression/road rage is tolerated. One warning is given then you will be asked to leave the property.
    Track time will be between 20-25 minutes per session. This is for your safety.
    A helmet is required. (Snell approved motorcycle is OK)
    All open cars and convertibles must have a roll bar, reinforced factory rollover protection; similar to a Porsche Boxter or BMW M3.
    Proper attire is required. This is defined as sleeved shirt, closed-toe shoes and long pants. NO shorts, tank or halter- tops, sandals or open-toed shoes are allowed; shoulders, legs and feet must be covered. Again, this is for your safety.
    We do allow a passenger, over the age of 18 and helmeted, in the car with you.
    There is a Drivers Meeting prior to the beginning of the FunDay. This is important, so please attend.
    For your safety, it is important to listen and comply with track personnel.
    Please check your car thoroughly prior to going on the track or have a mechanic do so prior to coming to the track. Check brakes, brake line, hoses, cooling system, tires, power steering system etc. Under track conditions, belts and hoses do break, so do not take a chance on missing the day with a broken part.
    All participants must be over 18 yrs old, carry a valid driver’s license, and have current auto insurance.
    We reserve the right to refuse service.
