Rennlist Driverís Education Watkins Glen October 18th and 19th, 2004



Dear Driving Enthusiast:


Thank you for your interest in the Rennlist DE at Watkins Glen October, 18th and 19th of this year. Some of you I have met either on the board, through the AC jack stand group buy I ran this past spring, or at a track event. For those of you who don't know me, I reside primarily on the 993 board on but have been known to visit the Racing and Drivers' Education Forum as well. I hatched the idea for this event earlier this summer as a way to get out on the track with other Rennlister's and, perhaps most importantly, ensure myself lots of track time at a track I happen to really love. The event is sort of a group buy of track time and will be limited to 111 cars, broken into three run groups of just 37 cars each. I have run at DE's with a variety of groups, a few PCA regions and other for-profit track groups, and tried to take the best of what I liked while leaving what I did not care for out. The basic concept is lots of track time with as few cars is as financially possible. Run groups will be intermediate and advanced only. I am sorry but I can't offer a novice group at this time as the logistics of lining up 37 novices and the accompanying 37 instructors will be too difficult.Participants must be intermediate or advanced drivers who have been signed off to run solo in previous DE's. That is to say you have come to the DE and started the day running solo as opposed to being in a novice run group and being signed off for the last session or two of the day. This is not a for profit venture but more of a group buy of track time so to speak so limiting the event to solo drivers will make the spaces easier to fill. The event will cost $255 per driver and will include the following:


2 days of DE at the Glen with 5 - 28 minute sessions per day.

Continental breakfast each day in the garage.

Garage space available on a first come first served basis.

Light lunch in the garage each day.

Banquet dinner (cash bar) at the Glen Club Monday evening.

Instructors will be available on a first come first served basis.


Those Rennlisters not participating in the DE are welcome to attend the banquet at a charge of $30. In addition, Rennlister's names can be left at the front gate and they can get a feel for what a DE is all about as well as check out other lister's cars and show off their own. The Glen does allow any car to ride on the track at highway speeds during lunch at a cost of $5 per lap, this is a good opportunity for those not participating in the DE to get a chance to check out the track.


This will be a great opportunity to get lots of run time at a great track while meeting some of the folks from Rennlist at the same time. Space will be limited to 111 cars to provide lots of run time as well as ensuring plenty of room on the track. Please fill out the attached application form and fax back to me at 609-399-3333. If you have any problems you can phone me at 609-992-6665 or 609-399-8300 or email me at [email protected] and I can arrange to send you the application in a PDF file.


As with PCA events, convertibles must have rollover protection to participate. If you are interested in instructing please indicate this in the return e-mail. Upon acceptance, you will be notified via e-mail or phone.


I look forward to meeting and driving with you at the Glen in October.


Thank you.
