This event will be limited to a total of 3 groups of 35 cars each.  Advanced Group will have open passing rules and Intermediate and Novice Groups will have restricted passing rules.   

The groups will be classified as follows:

____________________________________________________________________________________

Advanced Group

You must have a minimum of 18 track days experience or equivalent .  Passing without a point-by will be allowed everywhere except through the corkscrew.

 

Due to the Coronavirus, there will be no Beginner Group at this event since this would require us to put a coach in your passenger seat.  

(Update) There will be no passengers allowed on track. We have discussed this with the track officials and they are not budging. This is outside out control.

Laguna Seca enforces a strict sound limit of 90 db for this event

This event will run rain or shine.  There will be no money back cancelations.  If you need to cancel and we can fill your spot by March 14th, then we will offer you a transferrable rain check for a future event within one year.

We will not conduct a tech inspection on your car.   You are solely responsible for the safety of your car.

For drivers experiencing mechanical failures that result in dropping oil on the track, damage to track property such as broken brake markers, etc., and deployment of the fire truck which results in any additional charges to us for clean-up, repair to track property, etc., we will consider whether to pass on these additional costs to the responsible driver on a case-by-case basis.

Open top cars MUST have a roll bar that attaches at four locations on the body/chassis. Decorative, or "Style Bars" are not allowed.  Factory installed roll-over protection including pop-up bars are allowed.  Drivers of open top cars must wear eye protection.

All cars must have numbers on both sides of the cars for Identification.  Pick any number.  Digits must be 6” tall minimum.
