ApexFest 8 Track Weekend at NCCAR - March 28-29, 2020

On March 28 and 29, 2020, Apex Track Events and SCMC will host a High Speed Driving Event called ApexFest 8! This will take place at North Carolina’s Center for Automotive Research’s road course. This road course is ideally situated in Garysburg, NC and features a 40 feet wide bi-directional freshly paved road course with a ½ mile straightaway, 11 constant radius turns and large grassy run-off areas. There is no competition for times or trophies but a lot of fun to be had. Virtually any car is fully capable of handling this type of event.

Cost for one day is $179 and the cost for both days is only $299!! You will get up to 5 sessions per day with time between to cool down your car and socialize with other drivers. This also includes classroom instruction and in car instruction for Novice and some Intermediate drivers.

You must have a valid driver's license to attend. You will be able to download a technical inspection form that your personal mechanic will perform before you leave home. All you need to bring is this and a Snell SA2010 or later helmet.

We will have an at track safety inspection at the track on Saturday morning and Sunday morning (for Sunday only drivers.)

This event is open to all makes and models and you do not have to be a club member to participate. There will be a full day of track time and classroom instruction with 4-5 sessions in a non-timed HPDE set up. Car sharing is allowed with separate registration for each driver. This event will fill very quickly, so you will need to place your entry soon. The price for this fun at the race track is $179 for one day or only $299 for both days! Instructors will be able to track for no charge. All we ask is that you help one novice student and one intermediate student. Driving History/Experience will be verified for all Instructors.

All skill levels are welcome from beginner to track veteran.

We split drivers up into 4 experience groups: One of the four groups will be dedicated to novice students who will be required to have in car instructors.

Green Group (Novice) This group is for anyone with no or very little on track experience. An instructor will be provided at no charge for all members of this group.

Yellow Group (Intermediate) This group is for anyone with some on track experience. An instructor will be provided at no charge to members of this group. Once considered safe to run alone, drivers in this group can be "Solo'd" so they can drive on track without an instructor.

Blue Group (Advanced) This group is for anyone with plenty of on track experience.

White Group (Instructor) This group is reserved for instructors only.

Even solo drivers can have professional instruction using Racers 360 Video Analysis for as little as $99

Send in your onboard video to Racers360 and their pro coaches (Mike Skeen, Memo Gidley, Dion von Moltke and more coach with Racers360) will review it and film an in-depth corner by corner coaching session on top of your video. You will get back a roughly 15 minute coaching session where a coach has identified the main techniques and line changes that will help you find speed and stay safe on track! If you have any questions on how Racers360 can work with you please email them anytime at [email protected]

We have a block of rooms reserved at the discounted rate of $79 per night. Just call and mention the Group code "Apex"
