SCHEDULE: You should plan to show up at the track by 7:00am. Please check in BEFORE unloading or working on your car. Check-in will close at 7:40 and the Drivers' Meeting may begin as early as 7:40am (depending on your run group). This meeting is MANDATORY for all drivers unless you have received prior clearance to miss it. Cars typically go on track at 8:00am for the Advanced groups. Please show up no later than 7:15am if you do not want to potentially miss your first run session of the day. When you arrive at the track, please go straight to registration at the main building.
Speed Ventures provides a WATER dispenser with which you can refill your water bottle, canteen, cup, or camel. Please bring something to the track to drink with. The snack bar will be open for breakfast (I recommend the breakfast burrito) and lunch.
Either a TOW HOOK or some TOW POINT is highly recommended on the FRONT (and recommended on the REAR) of your car before going out on track. The important thing is that you have appropriate tow points figured out that we can hook on to in order to tow you off track. Please determine appropriate tow points - it is your responsibility and we will not be responsible for any damage done to your car. A rear tow point is recommended in case we are forced to pull your car from behind. If you do not have a tow-point, we will be forced to figure one out on the fly!
CAR NUMBERS are required. We will have tape available at the track for making numbers. Your numbers must be at least 8" tall, located on both sides and the back of your vehicle. You should use the number you signed up with. If you would like to change it, please notify us at registration.
The TECH FORM is a must-have at the event. Be sure to print it out, fill it out before the event, and bring it with you to registration:http://www.speedventures.com/events/tech.pdf
There is a track event checklist available if you're not sure what you should bring: https://www.speedventures.com/Events/trackchecklist.doc
