There will always be a drivers' meeting right before the track is opened up. In it, the organizers will discuss the basic rules, indicate the passing zones, and review the flags. Afterward, there may be an additional meeting for the newbies. Here, Open Track Racing driving instructor Allan Crocket discusses the basics of the driving line, braking and acceleration techniques, and how to safely pull into or out of the pits. We recommend attending this meeting even if you think you know what you're doing. It's always good to review.
