Re: DRIVER'S SCHOOL AT WATKINS GLEN
Eric, I would say don't get on the Quattro Club's case on this too much;
I believe entire difference is due to liability insurance. As I remember,
tracks generally want event organizers to have multi-million dollar liability
insurance to cover the possibility of injury to a bystander. This costs
money for organizers to purchase. The Porsche Club is able to purchase
a global policy that largely covers all events; the additional insurance
needed to be purchased by the event organizers (i.i., our PCA region)
for a specific track is minimal (sometimes zero).
There is an organization called "TrackTime" that puts on schools very
similar to the Porsche Club events; however, since they have to purchase
all of the liability insurance themselves; their costs are significantly
than the Porsche Club events; I think they're significantly higher than the
Quattro Club as well.
My own opinion is to lighten up a little on the general mailing lists, or
else pursue the Quattro club specifically on your own.
