Hey guys, I'm new to the forum, and have a question I need help with.
I'm bout to track my car for the first time at Gingerman raceway. What does DE experience mean? Apparently I gotta have it, or won't be allowed to drive. Your input will be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Ive never heard of that before but my best guess would be Drivers Education. I know some tracks require you to have a drivers licence unless you have a racing licence. I would email Gingerman to get clarification.

Thanks dude. I just got the notification of your reply now. Yeah, I had emailed them too, and ended up getting the response as you guessed it. It turns out they require that one has at least 3 prior track driving experiences so-to-speak, before letting one sign up as a novice driver. Sounds a little counter-intuitive at first, but safety-wise, it makes sense. Mos Def once once said in his rap song "why do I need I.D to get I.D.... If I had ID I wouldn't need ID". It definitely felt like one of those cases until they explained it. Lol
