Don't be scared, it's as good as it sounds. Make sure that you check out the Facebook event for info on how to jump the line so you can be sure you get to drive.

Make a video and send it to www.octaneacademy.com. But remember you can't include any driving footage in your video!

Thank you.

Finally, three pages of nothing about WHAT this event is before somebody gives a basic description. Their FaceBook page is just as cryptic.

This event lets you qualify to be on the show Octane Academy. There are two ways to do it, one you can submit a video of yourself telling them why they should consider you, the second is to show up at one of the two events and drive. If they like your driving skills then you qualify.

Sure, but we are limited by time. How long does it take to install the handicap driving controls?
