    Hi. Can someone please contact me regarding what to expect at a TNiA at this site? I’m hoping to blend a business trip with some track time but confused by the way the track is described. For reference I normally go to Heartland Park Topeka so trying to understand if this is more like a solo event or a true race track, or even a hybrid. Thanks!

    It is a drive your own car event, last time I went, July, 2023.

    The track has you on the throttle, per instructor comment, they use it for law enforcement training, student driving and these track days/nights. Its great fun with elevation change, hard on tires.

    David, DCTC is not a race track.  It's a training course.  Almost no part of the track is wide enough for safe passing, there are no corner stations, there is almost no run-off to speak of, and speeds over 80mph are fairly rare.

     

    Think of it like an autocross, except instead of a huge parking lot it's just a huge set of paved roads.
