Event requirements


THIS EVENT WILL RUN RAIN OR SHINE ** We will not run in heavy fog (corner workers must be able to see from one station to the next).

This is NOT a race school - Our events focus on learning proper high performance driving technique that will translate well into both street and track use. We focus our instruction on car control, on-track protocol, and advanced techniques that will be used with most clubs that run on-track driving events. We pride ourselves on the safety of our participants and our guests. We have developed an event that we feel offers the most value for your track dollar while keeping the costs reasonable and the risks minimal.

As of January 1 2011, all helmets must be Snell SA2005 specification minimum. We will no longer accept M rated helmets of any year, nor will we accept Snell rated helmets older than 2005.   We have a very limited supply of loaner helmets that can be reserved on a first-requested, first-served basis.

All participants' cars must complete our annual vehicle inspection before attending their first event with us each year. The inspection can be done at any of our annual inspection days (announced on or at any independant shop with access to a car lift. The inspection form must be filled out and signed or stamped by the mechanic. The form will be turned in at event check-in and a THSCC tech sticker will be issued (if you don't get one at the inspection.) The annual inspection form can be found hereTHSCC does NOT do on-site tech inspectionsYou must have this inspection completed before you arrive at the event.  (However, time trial equipment can be inspected on site.)

All convertibles participating in the event (HPDE AND Time Trial) must have an SCCA Approved 4-point sctructural roll bar built to SCCA GCR specifications for Time Trials. Factory roll-over protection is not acceptible for our events. *********All Time Trial drivers will be required to use an approved head and neck restraint device.********* Please see our tech guide for more details.

All participants, staff, and guests must sign the event insurance waiver at time of check-in. Everyone may also be required to sign the track's waiver as well. Armbands will be issued when the waiver(s) are signed and must be worn at all times.

Each track has its own set of rules and regulations regarding the use of its facilities. A copy of these rules is available upon request from track Management or THSCC.  All participants and their guests are required to abide by the track's rules and regulations. Any infractions may be cause for expulsion from the event and any fees charged by the facility for rules violations will be assessed to the individual(s) responsible.

All participants will be expected to read and follow the guidelines set forth by THSCC to ensure a safe, fun, and extremely rewarding event. You will receive event-specific information via email about two weeks prior to the event, but please feel free to contact us at any time if you have questions or comments.
