Open Track Days 2011 Information

Postby BigPimpin91 » Wed Jan 26, 2011 9:54 pm

Hello,

I have several questions concerning open track days that I cannot seem to find the answer to.

What are the rules and regulations for the track?
What are the requirements to bring your vehicle?
Are trucks allowed?
What safety gear is required? Helmets?
If so, do you offer helmets to rent for the day?
What is the cost for open track days?
Are you allowed to have a passenger as long as they abide by the rules?

Thanks in advance!

Lets see what I remember from the last few years.
Rules and regs should be posted here soon.
Vehicles in good roadworthy condition are considered good for the track. there is a tech inspection before the drivers meeting. In the past tech has been open from 7am to9:15am, Drivers meeting at 9:30.
Trucks? why not.
SA helmets less than 15 years old, long pants and closed toe shoes. no rental helmets available.
Back to tech. Bring your vehicle devoid of ALL loose items, please make sure it is clean with fresh fluids especially brake fluid.
Any further questions post them up. plenty of people glad to help.
Oh, passengers? Absolutely not. not a WHRRI rule, its our insurance companies.

There may be some people willing to let you borrow a helmet if you need too. I have one that I could loan...may have to do some cleaning first...LOL. Depending which open track day you want to go to, come and hang out early in the year, make a few friends and we will be glad to show you around.

We also have a muffler rule. Got to have one and it has to be under 75 db.

Thanks for the answers, Dave.

I live quite a bit a ways away and work quite often to pay the bills so coming out to a few races is kind of hard for me right now.

I'm building a 302 powered 2nd Gen RX7 at the moment and would love the chance to let her rip on a race track.

Is fuel provided at the track?
Pump gas specifically.
Or is there at least a gas station close by?

Maybe I could make it out one weekend to see what everything's all about...

Race fuel only at the track and only on race weekends. Gas at two stations less than half a mile away.
Where are you located?
