This is the first time I have seen a track walk available for MSRH since I started doing HPDEs there in 2015 but I wasn't really looking for them the first few years. "Experienced drivers will walk and talk you through the intricacies of this road course." Looks like the direction will be intentionally kept secret beforehand. I did a track walk of COTA as part of the Austin Schnell Fest event last fall and definitely picked up some good tips for faster laps and saw things that are not noticeable while driving even on slower cool down laps. I am definitely planning to go to this one!
The next day (Friday 7/16) they also have a time attack ($225 + optional $40 transponder rental, 1-5pm, 4x20 minute sessions per group) and track sprint ($75, 5-7pm, 2x 30 minute sessions per group). I am hoping to make it to the track sprint too. They use autocross style starting/finishing beams for track sprint so transponders are not used but you are also not required to run a transponder for time attack if you don't want to compete for official lap times so you could treat it more like a track day if you wanted. I heard that last time beginner and intermediate time attack groups required point bys and only allowed passing on the straights. Car numbers on each side are required for both time attack and track sprint. Pants are now required for just the time attack portion; shorts are ok for track sprint. Here is video from the last track sprint they did at the end of May for those not familiar with the format which was a standing start and most of a lap with nothing blocking the usual line then wait in a line for a few minutes on the pit straight then run again and repeat until the session time is up:
Race Groups Time Attack:
Green Group - Novice - 8 spots still available
Yellow Group - Intermediate - 3 spots still available
Red Group - Advanced - 6 spots still available
Groups will be limited to 15 novice, 12 intermediate, and 10 advanced drivers so that everyone has plenty of room to get their best run and have the best experience with their cars. Other places run 25 cars per session, and we are limiting the groups because we want everyone to be able to do what they need to do on the track.
Race Groups Track Sprint:
Group A - 4 Cylinder - 7 spots still available
Group B - 6 Cylinder, 8 Cylinder, Forced Induction - 5 spots still available
Groups will be limited to 15 total 4 cylinder cars and 15 total 6 cylinder, 8 cylinder, and forced induction cars for maximum runs. We learned a lot the Saturday of the last event, and on Sunday, people got 9 runs.
