Run Groups & Registration

Remote video URL

EFFECTIVE FOR THE 2020 SEASON:

Your run group is tied to your user account!

Image
What this means:
  • You may only register in your assigned run group or lower.
  • On an event registration form, you will ONLY see options for your run group or lower.
  • If checking for available spots on an event registration form, you will ONLY be able to check availability in your run group or lower.
  • You must be approved to move to another run group.

Existing driver accounts:

We automatically associated your account with the highest run group you recently drove in with us, but if you were approved to advance late in the season, or believe you were assigned incorrectly please follow the approval process noted on this page.

Image
New driver accounts:

If you are new to AutoInterests, your account is either unassigned or defaulted to the First-Timer run group, therefore you will ONLY be shown those options on an event registration form.

To be approved for a higher level, please follow the approval process below:

Run Group Approval Process

To be approved for a higher level, review our Run Group Guide and then please email events@autointerests.com with your road course driving experience, INCLUDING:

  • tracks driven
  • organizations
  • dates (years are fine if you don't remember month/day)
  • level/group(s) you drove in for each

Our chief instructors will review & assign you to the appropriate run group so you may register. You will receive an email once your information has been reviewed and a new run group assigned (if approved).

Please wait until we assign your run group before registering. Do not register in First Timer if you know you are Novice, Intermediate or Advanced.

Some common FAQ's on this topic can be found below.

This approval process is for newly created accounts or current drivers who believe their run group assignment is incorrect. Throughout the season and at events, if you are approved by an instructor to move up your run group assignments will be adjusted appropriately - no need to email information at that point.

What is my run group?

Check your assigned group when you're logged in by clicking on "My Account" at the top of the page, and then the "Run Group" tab.

My run group shows first timer, but I'm not a first timer.

If you are new to AutoInterests, your account is either unassigned or defaulted to the First-Timer run group. 

To be approved for a higher level, please follow the approval process as noted at the top of this page.

Image
Why do I only see Acclimation or First Timer on registration forms?

If you are new to AutoInterests, your account is either unassigned or defaulted to the First-Timer run group, therefore you will ONLY be shown those options on an event registration form.

To be approved for a higher level, please follow the approval process as noted at the top of this page.

How do I register for Novice, Intermediate or Advanced?

If you are new to AutoInterests, your account is either unassigned or defaulted to the First-Timer run group, therefore you will ONLY be shown those options on an event registration form.

To be approved for a higher level, please follow the approval process as noted at the top of this page.

Once approved and assigned to a new run group, the other options will appear on the registration form (depending on what you've been approved for).

Image
My run group isn't displayed, how do I register?

If you do not see your run group from the Run Group select box on an event registration form, please check what run group you are assigned to - go to "My Account" at the top of the page, and then the "Run Group" tab. 

To be approved for a higher level, please follow the approval process as noted at the top of this page.

Once approved and assigned to a new run group, the other options will appear on the registration form (depending on what you've been approved for).

Image
Is my run group sold out?

PLEASE NOTE: You can only check the availability of your run group, or lower levels. (If you are a Novice driver you can not see Intermediate or Advanced. If you are an Intermediate driver you can not see Advanced.)

HOW TO CHECK: On the event registration form select your desired options from "Days Driving" and "Run Group" and the remaining spots available will display below the "Add to Cart" button (or the button will change to UNAVAILABLE).

WAIT LIST: If your selection displays "UNAVAILABLE", additional spots may become available at a later date due to driver cancellations or additional instructors. If you would like to be put on the waiting list, please click the "Add me to the wait list" link.

Image
If a run group isn't listed, does that mean it's sold out?

No. If you do not see a run group listed on the event registration form, this DOES NOT mean sold out. This simply means that your account is not assigned/approved for that group, therefore unable to view/register for it.

If you believe you belong in a run group that does not display for you on the registration form, please follow the approval process as noted at the top of this page.
