In car Instruction and Coaching!!

We (GVC) offer in-car instruction and coaching (driver and instructor) at HPDE’s, as well as other dual-occupant driving events (e.g., driving tours, safety schools) under the following circumstances:

Both occupants in the car have been fully vaccinated and are at least 14 days after second or booster Pfizer/Bio-N-tech or Moderna Covid-19 vaccination, or 28 days after Johnson & Johnson single-dose vaccination.

Proof of vaccination status or cohabitation is required for any participant wishing to take advantage of in-car instruction.  Proof of vaccination can be in the form of a digital photo of the completed vaccination card (both sides), a valid NYS Excelsior Pass, or equivalent.  At event check-in, those with proof of vaccination or cohabitation will be provided a unique wristband in addition to the usual run group wristband.  You must wear both to participate in dual-occupant in-car activities.

Please submit proof of vaccination to Sean Grant sgrant1983@me.com at least one week in advance of the event.

In-car instruction is completely optional

To Opt-in, you must provide proof of Covid-19 vaccination information. 

To Opt-out, please inform the registrar (Sean Grant, see above) that you wish to utilize Lead/Follow instruction at least one week prior to the event.

For instructors and advanced drivers qualified to run solo (see below), there will be two run groups, fast and faster, which will alternate on track each day.  You assign yourself to one or the other run group according to your preferred pace and comfort level.  Regardless of which run group you choose initially, after a couple sessions running separately, all drivers in these groups have the option to drive in either group at any time when the track is "green" as long as appropriate respect is paid to the run group's pace and "culture". All standard BMW CCA safety protocols and passing rules will be in effect. Instructors available by special arrangement for lappers new to NYST.

Intermediate students drive separately in their own run group along with their assigned instructors in the morning and right after lunch.  Additional sessons in the morning and afternoon will be provided running in the open lapping session with your instuctor to gain experince with other groups. Classroom sessions are scheduled between track sessions each day.  Fundamentals of vehicle dynamics and high-performance driving techniques will be presented by a senior classroom instructor in an interactive format encouraging student participation.
