About this event
A WEEKEND AT INDE IN THE SPRING TIME? HOPE YOU ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO IT AS MUCH AS WE ARE!
Catch the details below :)
A speed and experience level for everyone: There will be several different "run groups" which will be separated by experience/skill level: Novice, Intermediate, Experienced and Advanced. There is a run group for everyone- so don't hesitate to sign up if you have little to no experience on track.
To ensure everyone registered has a good time at the track, the amount of cars in each run group is limited. Sign up early to avoid being waitlisted!
PCA Instructor School training on Friday: If you are currently instructing for the PCA and are looking to get your PCA National Instructor's card, this training is for you.
HPDE on Saturday: The full course (Configuration 1) will be ran on Saturday as a HPDE only. You'll get four 25-minute sessions of track time.
HPDE on Sunday: The full course (Configuration 2 Counter-Clockwise) will be ran on Sunday as a HPDE only. You'll get four 25-minute sessions of track time.
Instructors are free!

Open-faced and closed-face style helmets are permitted, however, motorcycle helmets are not permitted- these usually have the designation "M" preceding the year i.e. M2010 or M2015.

Check-in / Schedule
Gates open at 7:00 am and check-in closes at approximately 8:00 am when the driver's meeting starts. We will be conducting check-in and safety inspection at the red tent in the upper paddock area (follow the signs for “PCA Vehicle Safety Inspection after you enter the track). When you arrive to the track at check-in, please have your Driver’s License and Speedwaiver credential pulled up on your cell phone and make sure everyone else coming with you also has their SpeedWaiver credentials ready to display on their phone. It helps keep the check-in process going smoothly and quickly. We will provide you with your driver package there which includes the weekend schedule, track map, and wrist bands for your run group.
Driver Check-In Requirements and Drivers Meeting
You must check in prior to the mandatory driver's meeting that starts at approximately 8:00 am to document that you are present. Check in closes 5 minutes before the driver's meeting starts- if you have not (at minimum) checked in before the meeting starts, you will not be permitted to participate in the event and your registration may be forfeited per the cancellation terms. Prepare for a line and arrive appropriately. You have a one hour window to check in the morning of the event- from approximately 7:00 am to 8:00 am.
Vehicle Pre-Technical Inspection and Vehicle Numbers
A pre-technical inspection must be performed on your car prior to the event (exception: Track Tour only participants do not need to complete). If you are qualified to complete the inspection on your own, you may do so i.e. self-tech is ok. Otherwise, have a shop perform the tech inspection for you. If you are self-tech'ing, print your name on the form where it states "Tech Inspector Name"
Download and print out the pre-tech form here: 2022 PCA Driver Tech Form.pdf
Complete the pre-tech form and bring it with you to the event. You will turn it in when the final safety inspection is performed at the event.
If you are not qualified nor know someone that is qualified to perform the pre-tech inspection, the following three shops are able to perform the pre-tech inspection for you:
McIlvain Motors in Tempe, AZ https://www.mcilvainmotors.com/
Autohaus Tucson in Tucson, AZ http://www.autohaustucson.com/
The final safety inspection at the morning of the event will consist of checking for: Loose objects in the car, functioning brake light, gas cap and battery secure, wheel lugs torqued, any leaking fluids, approved helmet, proper attire, and car numbers in place (you will choose your car number during the registration process here). Vehicle numbers are to be placed on both the driver and passenger door. Numbers must be 10" tall or greater. Using blue or white painter's tape to form numbers is acceptable. It is recommended that you get to the event early enough to avoid long lines at vehicle safety inspection.
Harnesses and HANS Devices
If your vehicle has a multi-point harness system, you are also required to utilize a head and neck restraint system (HANS device). Because the PCA rule of equal restraint applies, if there will be a passenger in your car (such as an instructor) there must be both a harness system and a HANS device available and used by that passenger.
Convertibles MUST have roll-over protection- either built in from the OEM, or aftermarket. Porsche convertibles from the beginning of the Boxster era have adequate built-in roll over protection from the factory. Convertibles should be driven with the top-up. If there is no convertible top, hand restraints must be worn.
Sound Restrictions for INDE
There are no sound restrictions at Inde Motorsports Ranch!
