HPDE Advanced Only Drivers: Please read our HPDE Information Packet for event information and FAQ’s. You’ll find answers to many common questions about run groups, how the days are scheduled and the best place for you to start in one of our fun and informative events. (Some information in this may not apply as this event is HPDE Advanced Only. 


Track Time Trial (TT) Drivers: Unlike other TT events, ours is structured to place an emphasis on driving consistenly fast laps rather than getting that one overall fast lap. The first session in the morning will be a practice and qualifying session, where your fastest lap time is used to establish which class you will be placed in: TT-A, TT-B, or TT-C. Classification is entirely lap time based and is not determined by car or modifications. The remaining sessions are used to earn points: fastest lap in your TT class from each session, and the numbers of laps that are consistent with your average lap times in that session. You’ll find the TT event rules and scoring procedures, including answers to many common questions about how our track events are structured and what to expect in our TT Event Information Packet.

Event requirements

TT & HPDE Track Day Requirements

Safety is our primary concern. Cars and personal safety equipment will be inspected on the day of the event prior to being allowed on track. This inspection and roll bar acceptance is not a certification of a car’s safety or its ability to withstand the stress of this driving event. You are fully responsible for finding and remedying any safety issues prior to the event.

Due to insurance limitations for our track events, all drivers must be eighteen (18) years of age or older.

No passengers allowed except for approved CSCC HPDE instructors.


  • A helmet certified as SA2010 or newer is required. We have a limited quantity of helmets available to rent ($10).
  • Long pants and closed-toe shoes are requiredWe strongly recommend 100% cotton or Nomex clothing: underwear/bra/socks, long-sleeve shirts, long pants; leather shoes and gloves (no nylon inserts).
    • If you have made track driving your hobby, we highly recommend that you invest in Nomex driving attire. Please do your research before buying, as "not all that glitters is gold." 


You will bring and use your own vehicle. It may be a daily-driver, modified street car, or fully-prepped racecar. It must be in good condition, free of leaks or safety issues, with fully-functioning seat belts (for driver and instructor, and must be the same level & quality for both), and plenty of brakes and tire tread. We also recommend installing at least a partial roll cage in your car (but this is not a requirement for HPDE).

It is the participants responsibility to ensure that their car is in satisfactory condition, especially all safety equipment, for the rigors of high performance driving on a racetrack. 

Per our insurance requirements, all entrants must be 18 years of age or older and show a valid driver's license at registration.

The following are the vehicle items that are covered in the event technical inspection:

  • Adequate tire tread
  • Proper tire inflation
  • Loose items removed
  • No cracks in windshield within driver's view and no cracks that go through all windshield layers 
  • Seat belts in good condition and working order (5 or 6 point harness for drivers in convertibles) 
  • Driver seat secure
  • Brake lights functional
  • Ensure the positive terminal on the battery is properly covered
  • The battery needs to be mechanically secured to the car


Convertibles are defined as cars with retractable tops, whether soft-top or folding hardtop. Convertibles are not allowed to participate in sessions driven at speed without a roll bar and a 5- or 6-point harness for each occupant (which also implies seats that allow for proper mounting and routing of the 5- or 6-point harness). Arm restraints are strongly recommended. The use of a roll bar meeting the minimum requirements is described in CSCC-ConvertibleRollbarRequirements.pdf. Cars equipped with only factory popup posts are not allowed.

Cars with factory-installed, fixed rollover protection or removable roof sections (including Targa tops and T-tops) may be allowed only if the both the driver and passenger are within the protection of the Helmet Reference Plane described in section A.1 in CSCC-ConvertibleRollbarRequirements.pdf



This online registration process uses a "deferred payment" process. Your credit card will not be charged until the week prior to the event. A pre-authorization check is done electronically to confirm validity and capacity of your account by (MSR), much like a hotel might do. The pre-authorization should fall off your account within 24-72 hours depending on your bank card's practices. DEBIT CARD USERS, you can use your card on MSR, but you should treat the pre-authorization as a debit and account for this until the "hold" is dropped by your bank.

Cancellation requests sent through MSR must be acknowledged by the CSCC HPDE event registrar to ensure any eligible refunds are applied to your method of payment. Note that your registration is reserving one (1) of a limited number of spots for this event. As such, you must be aware of our cancellation policy, which is:

  • No charges will be processed on your account if you cancel 7 or more days before the event date
  • A $50 late cancellation fee will be charged if you cancel 2 to 6 days before the event
  • You will be charged the full amount if you cancel less than 48 hours before the event or are a no show

*** PLEASE NOTE that your registration reserves one (1) of a limited number of spots for this event. You will be charged if you do not cancel prior to the event, even if you do not show and participate.
