Participants will require a helmet that is in good condition with a minimum Snell M2010 ,Snell SA2010 certification or current SFI equivalent.
High centre-of-gravity vehicles (SUVs) are generally not eligible to participate due to a higher risk of rollover. Some models (BMW X1/X3/X5/X6, Porsche Cayenne/Macan) may be acceptable in the novice/beginner groups. Please check with us before registering to verify.
Non-plated specialty vehicles (track/race car) are approved on a case by case basis and are allowed in the Instructors and Advanced run groups only.
Convertible cars are eligible to participate if they have appropriate rollover protection.
Please contact the registrar if you wish to participate with a convertible.
Inspections will be arranged as required.
Basic requirements: Factory Rollover protection (bars) like Z3, Z4, Boxster are OK for Novice/Beginner groups. For more experienced students or instructors, full SCCA/CASC approved rollbars are required (bracing, proper tube size etc). Broomstick rule will be applied (must be clearance over top of helmet). 'Pop-up' protection like 3er or 911 convertibles are not sufficient. Check with us first if you are in doubt!
Calabogie is a long and challenging track with over 20 corners, many with blind entry points and numerous elevation changes. Novice and Beginner students are only eligible for Saturday/Sunday. Intermediate and Advanced students may also participate on Friday but must be pre-approved by the chief instructor.
An option is offered to Approved ISG
For approved students that wish to enjoy the event in a more collaborative environment, we are offering an 'ISG' (Independent Study Group) group. This group offers increased track time (has the option to drive in all 'A / Group 2' and most ('Instructor / Group 0' sessions). We have a team of Coaches / Mentors assigned to the ISG group for the event. They will be available to the individual students. Regular discussions will take place as an informal group rather than the standard classroom type experience. Contact us for more information and to check your eligibility to this group.
