Typically for drivers with 4-6 (+/-) events that have had an instructor in their prior events. Novice-Solo is on track at the same time as Novice-Instructed.Intermediate: Drivers in this group should have completed between 6-25 events (+/-). By this time drivers should have knowledge of the line around a track, can figure it out if they are at a track for the first time, and have excellent awareness of cars behind them and the corner stations. Speeds are starting to increase and drivers are working on developing and improving their skills including threshold braking, heel/toe downshifting with rev matching, acceleration through the apex, using the full width of the track.Intermediate 1: This group is used at our full weekend events. Drivers in this group are solo approved and have completed 6 (+/-) or more events and are ready to move out of the Novice group. At this stage drivers know the driving line around the track, can drive it with relative consistency and have great awareness of corner stations, flags and other cars on track.Intermediate 2: This group is used at our full weekend events. Drivers in this group have completed 13 (+/-) or more events. At this stage drivers have excellent awareness, can always maintain their line and are ready to pass and be passed anywhere on the track. In this group drivers are working on heel/toe downshifting, threshold braking, apex speed and developing into advanced drivers.Advanced: Drivers with 25+ events. At this stage it is all about not being in the way because your skills match those on track with you. It is expected that drivers in advanced not be an impediment to other cars on track.
