Open top automobiles must have factory rollover protection or an SCCA Time Trials approved roll bar. Race Prepared Cars running in a GCR Race class must meet all requirements of their respective class including cage, window nets or arm restraints, fire suppression system and driver safety gear including fire suit, gloves, socks and driver restraint system.

Special Introductory Offer: If you have been 'on the fence' trying to decide if track events are your cup of tea Reno Region has established an introductory discount just for you.  Instead of paying the original Track Event Novice entry  we are offering a special $50 discount for first timers that are not experienced 'track junkies' and have not run with us previously.  This Special includes entry in our Track Event (TE) Novice Class, four 20 minute on-track sessions, ample classroom instruction, in-car coach and lunch.  You know you want to do it, now is the time. 

Regular Entry Fees: Track Event (TE) / Time Attack (TA), Day 1 - 3 Mile =$290, Day 2 - 2 Mile =$225, Both Days 3 Mile & 2Mile =$390 (recomended)

For those who just can't get enough track time we offer a Dual Entry. For an additional $75 you can run the same car and driver in both Time Attack groups (TT 1 & TT 2). That's a mind boggling 2 hours and 40 minutes of track time, each day!
