HCP Cups and Saucers Advanced DE at WGI 05/12/10 - 05/13/10 **REGISTRATION NOW OPEN**

**REGISTRATION NOW OPEN**

The Hudson-Champlain Region will be hosting the premier Advanced Drivers Education event, “Cups and Saucers”, at the famous Watkins Glen International, Wednesday and Thursday, May 12-13. This is a fantastic, no-nonsense event for White, Black and Red run group drivers wishing to get maximum track exposure. (White run group drivers must have completed a minimum of 6 track days in the White run group prior to the event.)

The unique “Cups and Saucers” format was designed to allow drivers to share the track with similar skill levels and equipment. This year, we will feature expanded passing zones in the “Cups” run group. Adding to the experience will be individual coaching available from Speed Secrets Driver Development Services. Speed Secrets personal coaching will be available in 1 (one) hour sessions, available both days, at a special rate of $275 per hour for early sign-up. Come meet Scott Leder of Speed Secrets during the social hour in the lounge of the Harbor Hotel, our host hotel, the night before the event, May 11th. There will also be a free guided track walk at the conclusion of driving on Wednesday for all interested participants. Drivers can expect to get about 3 hours of track time each day (6 scheduled 30-minute sessions for each run group).

The highlight of the social events will be the “Cups and Saucers Dinner” at the Harbor Hotel Wednesday night. Following dinner, Scott Leder will give a seminar that will include reviewing and analyzing data and video from that day, and a question and answer session. Cost for both the dinner and the seminar is $40 per person. This is an opportunity to have your best run professionally reviewed and coached for free!

The Harbor Hotel is offering special rates of $129 plus tax for Village View rooms and $149 plus tax for Lake View rooms. These rooms and rates are limited and on a first-come basis, contact the Harbor Hotel directly for reservations and mention the Hudson Champlain Region PCA for these great rates.

Early drop-off and registration will be available from 6-8 PM on May 11th and a limited number of garages assignments will be available for the price of a small charitable donation; however camping will not be available. This year we will be using ClubRegistration.net for all event and options registration.

Don’t miss the opportunity to join us at the Glen for this exciting DE, remember that registration will only be open for a limited time so register early for a free T-shirt. For additional DE details, contact Don Schneider, Track Chair, at [email protected] or Jim Morgan, Registrar, at [email protected].

We have added some great new features to this year's event, so please join us for two great days at WGI. Registration opens on March 17th.

Not unless you moved to the black run group in 4 days; so no.

I've done this events twice and it's excellent. Even better this year with the dinner and coach available.

Question: I am a novice and will have had 4 track days at VIR with instruction. Am I eligible to enter this CUps and saucers event? Ed
Ed thank you for your interest in our event. This event is open to Red, Black, & White run group drivers only. (White drivers must have a minimum of 6 track days in white). So with only 4 days you are not eligible for this event.

If you have any other questions please do not hesitate to contact me directly. Thank you.

Ed, there are many great PCA events at WGI open to all levels of drivers. It's a fantastic track with tons of great things to do in the area.

Even if you are a solo driver you will want to drive it at least once before you go to an advanced DE like cups & saucers. It's no fun for you if you constantly have your arm out the window!! Also unlike VIR there isn't a lot of run off area. The "blue bushes" are very unforgiving

Props to Aaron and the crew for running a great event. The weather was nasty day one and my power steering failed day two so for me personally there was a lot of suckage, but you can be sure I'll be back next year.

If you are an advanced driver this is a must attend event. Well run, safe, great drivers, lots of track time and intresting cars. Track walk, a great dinner and Speed Secrets coaching.
