To those that have never done a EVO school. Its worth the money and I highly suggest it. I credit Jinx Jordon for making me a decent auto-x'er.

Just saw there is a Street Survival school the same day as Event 4 on June 17th. What's the deal? How's that going to work?

Maybe they'll have them out on track?  :-\


By the way, the Evo School registration is open on MotorsportReg.  I just signed up for both days.  Probably means I'll have to skip the PVGP School, but I did say two years ago that I'd stop going if I was faster than my instructors  :P

Howdy,

Presumably that's for both days?

Its actually remarkably cheap if so.  Evo has been at the $250/day mark for a LONG time and even back when I was doing stuff, nobody was getting rich off that, after you paid site rental, instructors (fee + travel), insurance, etc.

And if $500 for the weekend horrifies you, don't think about the tire wear of 60-ish runs... :-)

The PVGP school has been cheap because the PVGP has already rented out the whole facility, there's a blanket insurance policy, and the instructors are local and all donate their time.  None of that applies to Evo.

@josh that is correct PittRace has scheduled for the 18th. I need to fix that in the calendar. We have another change coming soon to one of our events.

Ok, so there are couple of changes to the schedule.

1. We have moved the Sunday May 21st Event to Saturday May 20th to help support the FASTTrackPGH Charity Event at North Park. Think of it as FastTrack Dual event weekend! More details to follow.

2. I had the date all screwed up for the June 18th weekend event which should now say it's actually on Sunday June 18th for real.

Also, Evo School registration is officially open for anyone who is interested in attending that school! This includes the Friday Evo School Advantage event the weekend of the Match Tour.

That is all! Happy Friday!  ;D
