AFM Mentor Program
What is the AFM Mentor Program?
The AFM Mentor Program is designed to pair up new racers with seasoned AFM experts to help answer any questions, offer insight into the AFM and set expectations for the upcoming race event. Most of the contact will be through phone calls and e-mails, but occasionally we can pair a racer with someone local for hands on help. The goal of this program is not to make you a faster racer; we leave that to the trackday providers. The goal of the Mentor Program is to make sure you have the information necessary to prepare for an upcoming event and a friendly face in the pits that you know you can turn to for help on race day.
Who should have a Mentor?
Anyone new to racing or new to the AFM should have an experienced club member to contact before and during any event. If you already have support but they don’t have the extended expert level experience of others in the club, it’s helpful to have that extra person to turn to as a sounding board or to validate the advice you were given or found online. Even if it is your 3rd weekend out, it is still nice to know you have someone experienced you can turn to for questions.
How do I get assigned a Mentor?
The program is voluntary, and there are 3 ways to get connected:
If you are signing up for the NRS, talk to your trackday provider about the program to see if any of their instructors are AFM mentors.
Look for us at the track. We will have an “AFM Mentor Program” banner displayed in the pit area. Where ever you see that banner, you can find someone to answer your questions.
