A number of regular questions are answered below.
Run Group Is Best For Me?
MVP Track Time will assign you to a run group based on your
track day experience. Our run groups are as follows:
Novice (Group 1 - Red):
Little or no track experience.
Intermediate (Group 2 - Yellow): Limited track experience.
Advanced (Group 3 - Green):
Licensed racing and experienced track drivers.
use our "best fit" philosophy for group assignment. If you feel you are
wrong group and would like to move up to a
higher run group, with our permission
and approval of an instructor, we may allow you to do so.
Room in the run groups
will also determine if a driver
can move up or down to another run group.
Much Track Time WIll I Enjoy?
MVP Track Time
generally schedules six, 20-minute run sessions for each of the three (Novice,
Intermediate and Advanced) run group each day. Expect 2 hours per day.
Instructors Be Available To Help Me?
Yes! We will have seasoned instructors available
to all Novice drivers for each track event.
These instructors are complimentary with your registration, please be nice to them.
Our instructors will not drive your car on track, nor will they
request to drive your car on track.
Are Convertibles Allowed to Run On The Track?
Maybe! Certain convertibles, notably the Porsche Boxster, the Honda S2000, and
any convertible sporting a hard top, are permitted to to run without an additional
roll bar. Also, convertibles with automatic "Pop Up" rollover protection are
permitted in the Novice and Intermediate run groups. All other convertibles
must have a roll bar which passes the "Broomstick Test".
Despite these restrictions, we encourage all convertible owners to install a roll bar
which complies with the "Broomstick Test" for their own additional safety. Please
contact me at (314) 249-3770 if you are unsure whether or not your car is

please contact us in advance.
All passengers must sign our
"Passenger Waiver" form before being allowed to ride on track.

Car With Another Driver?
Yes! Drivers can share a car in the same run group. The second driver will
be required to register and pay $100 - $150 atop the first driver's normal entry
Drivers sharing a car in seperate run groups will be required to register and
pay seperate full registration fees.
How Long Is Each On-Track Session?
We generally run twenty (20)
minute sessions for each run group. We've
found that shorter
runs ruin the rythm and any longer run allows fatigue and
inatentiveness to settle in, causing
Is There a Minimum Age Requirement?
Yes. All drivers must
be at least eighteen (18) years of age and hold a valid
automobile driver's license.
Can I Drive
My Truck or SUV On The Track?

can NOT allow any trucks or SUVs to run on the track for our track days.

What Happens if
I Can't Attend a Track Day I've Registered For?
MVP Track Time understands schedule
conflicts so we make every effort to accomidate cancellations. That being noted, we are on the hook for the contracted
If you cancel before three weeks (Circuit of The Americas is four weeks) prior to the track
event, we will refund your registration fee MINUS a cancellation charge.
If you cancel inside of three weeks (Circuit of The
Americas is four weeks) prior to the track event, there is no refund.
Updated 8/29/2016: We will no longer transfer any current registration to a future event
nor to another driver. We have tried to assist attendees by graciously moving registrations to future events or
other drivers, but this courtesy has been abused so MVP will no longer move your existing registration to another
event nor another driver. Going forward you will simply cancel the existing event, pay any cancellation
fee, and re-register for the new event.

Yes. Most tracks, if not all, have both unleaded and leaded
race fuel available. It is NOT
