Sound Policy

As there are residential areas near our site, the sound policy will be in effect with our normal limit of  96db and will strictly enforced.  You can find the detailed sound policy here.

Your Vehicle Must Pass Tech

Before any car can run, it must be inspected to make sure it is safe and in compliance. The basics of the inspection include:

  • Battery securely bolted down. (This is the most common problem)
  • Tires – no cord showing
  • Wheel bearings, shocks, steering, and suspension in good operating condition.
  • Seat belts in good operating condition.
  • Brakes – firm pedal with no detectable drop with car not running and proper level of fluid in reservoir.
  • All loose items removed (radar detectors, floor mats, etc.)
  • Hubcaps and wheel rings removed unless they bolt on.
  • All lugs present and tight.
  • Throttle return action safe and positive (no sticky throttles)
  • No excessive fluid leaks

Acceptable numbers and class designation must be on both sides of car.

You are responsible for this. Buy magnets, bring painters tape, masking tape, or frog tape (in a contrasting color from your car), or print your numbers and letters at home and tape them to the car. Whatever your solution, it should be legible from 100 feet.

New for 2015: Novices must include "N" in your class letters on your car. The "N" should be first. Example: NAS, NSTS, NXP

Examples:

 

Waviers

Any competitor or passenger must sign the SCCA wavier, available on site.

Weekend Memberships

SCCA Membership cards will be verified when you check-in at the registration trailer. If you are not an SCCA member, you must register for this event as an SCCA weekend member. Any passenger in a competition car must be a weekend member, but there is no fee for passengers.

Special Wavier for competitors, passengers, or participants that are under 18

All minors under 18 years old require a minor waiver to compete or spectate. For competitors the waiver must be signed by both parents, or by a verified single parent/guardian (requires evidence of status). This waiver is good for all events for a full calendar year from the date of its signing as long as the minor retains the pink waiver copy. For a minor spectator, one parent or guardian can sign a waiver good for a single event.  Althought ETR has minor waviers at the event, it is best to be prepared ahead of event day – get the minor competitor’s waiver completed with all the parent/guardian signatures required.

THIS FORM MUST BE PRINTED IN COLOR

The minor waiver can be downloaded at: http://www.scca.com/documents/insurance/Minor%20Release%20Form%20MS-L.pdf

Print the form (IN COLOR), get it signed by both parents or legal guardians, and present it at the registration table at the event.

Please visit our community forum if you have any questions about this wavier.

Helmets

Loaner helmets are available. If you bring your own, it must be SNELL rated. Learn more about helmet requirements here.
