We would like to invite you to the Ferrari Owners Club track Day event. This is not a race or timed event. This is an opportunity to enjoy your car in a controlled environment. There will be professional instructors on site to provide both classroom and on track instruction. Safety is of the utmost importance, so helmets are required... no exceptions! Passengers are not allowed on the track with the exception of the professional instructors.
Space is limited to 30 cars so register early. This event is rain or shine.
The price includes lunch for yourself and a guest.

Is $250 the going rate for a day at the track?
Well, if you showed up at AROC's Waterford track day this past Sunday, it would have cost $100 as a club member...

FYI, it costs $1750 to rent Waterford Hills for one day. I'll let you read what you want into that.

I suppose you didn't pay for the insurance? I'll let you read into that however you wish.

Yes, we did pay insurance. AROC provides base coverage, and we have to pay a $200 rider. Add $400 for the required ambulance, and you get around $2400 to have fun on the track.

We also added another $400 to pay for corner workers, and another $100 for water, so our grand total was just under $3000.

All I'm doing is pointing out how much it costs to put on the event at WHRRI, which is one of the cheapest tracks around, and one of my favorites, too. Someone asked if it was the going rate, and I pointed out a recent event that AROC Detroit hosted.

Who is AROC's insurer? I'm looking to do some other events, including "friendly legal 200 mph runs" on an airstrip.. and that would def. help lower the costs. The last quote for a silly thing like going 200 down an empty airfield was around $4,000

Naughton Insurance. The entire club (AROC-USA) pays something around $23k a year to insure the entire club, and the policy lets us have a rider to pay for competition events.

If you want a contact there, PM me. They have been really good to us.

Hmmm, $100 is cheaper than $250...
Tis only part of the story.

There is no national FOC insurer at this point in time... AROC pays 23k per year... of course, paid for by it's members.

This is a one time event, as compared to AROC's many events.... at some point there is a cost benefit cross over. This single track day does not meet that this year.

If you want to run the track with some cool cars besides the norm, then sign up, come on out, and have a good time. The cost is what it is this year.
