The Open Track Lapping at Palmer Series (OT LAPS) is open to all drivers.
OT LAPS provides three (3) track sessions per group (experienced, intermediate, novice).
For novice drivers, our coaches and staff will help guide you in classroom and track sessions.
Classroom sessions introduce the basics for driving on the race track:
» Track safety basics: safety flags, pitting procedures, point-by passing rules.
» Vehicle dynamics: Traction limits, weight transfer, friction circle physics.
» Threshold braking and initiating turns for speed and traction.
» Consistency in driving, car placement, and sighting/visual focus.
» What to do in a spin, reacting to on-track incidents at speed.
Experienced drivers can expect 3 track sessions and 60+ minutes of track time.
Novice drivers may wish to reviewHPDE school requirements and experienced track drivers may review lapping day requirements. For questions, please
