All track vehicles will be required to undergo a technical inspection prior to the event. Inspections must be performed by a qualified individual or shop. Self tech. inspection is acceptable. Please note however, this technical inspection is very important to your safety. Also, a good technical inspection helps ensure you have a reliable car; car breakdowns and not completing all of the track exercises will prevent you from successfully completing the school. If you are unsure of your ability to self tech. we highly recommend you use a qualified shop. A technical inspection form and a short medical form (similar to what you would see at a HPDE) will be sent to you along with other Club Race school materials.
