“What time do I need to show up?â€
This is the #1 question we are asked, especially by the folks new to NASA. See the event schedule (below or attached) for exact times but we recommend ~45-60 mins prior to the drivers meeting to allow enough time to find a spot, check in with Driver Info (if you’re HPDE1) and get your car through tech and any other last min items before the drivers meeting.

Tech Inspection
All HPDE cars require an onsite tech inspection prior to being allowed on track. HPDE participants should print and fill out the "HPDE Tech" Form prior to arriving to tech. If you need a race or TT annual inspection, those will be handled onsite only on a case by case basis.
All NASA Forms (including the "HPDE Tech form" can be found) here -->

Driver Information
• Will be located near the NASA AZ trailers (see paddock map)
• HPDE1 will need to “check in†with registration. All other groups will receive their wristbands from their respective Group Leader directly after the Drivers Meeting

Rental Helmets
We have a limited number of rental helmets @ $10 available in most sizes. They will only be rented to one person per event and include a headsock. They will also be sanitized between use/events. Please let us know in advance if you need one to guarantee availability.

Drivers Meetings / Downloads
The drivers meeting per the schedule is mandatory for ALL drivers, instructors, officials, or anyone that will participate any way shape or form during the event. All other meetings times and locations will be announced by your respective Group Leader directly after the drivers meeting.

Looking to take a passenger along for a ride on track? No problem but there's a few more steps required:
1. Passengers need to be 18 (with photo ID proof of age)
2. Passengers are only allowed in HPDE3, HPDE4 or Time Trial
3. Passengers are required to sign the "Passenger Waiver" (in addition to the general "Gate Waiver") and pay a $10 fee

Transponder Rentals
• Need to be pick up from registration and returned within 30 mins of your final session to avoid penalties
• Time Attack competitors that also run in TT and/or Race --> Select the "Transponder Rental" option from the registration page and then select the lower cost TA option (since you'll already have a transponder)

Timing and Scoring
Results will be posted on the sign easels at Driver Info. Please report errors to "Driver Info" ASAP so they can get properly corrected. If you own your own transponder, please ensure your membership profile is configured with your TX # (NOTE: T&S downloads that # prior to the event to ease/automate results). 
• Live (real time) T&S @
