Test your skill and equipment with other enthusiasts or just enjoy a fun and challenging, yet safe, track.

A recreational event offering timing for cooperative drivers with an competitive spirit.

We will be running the very technical Reno-Fernley Raceway Config C course, approx 3.2 miles in length. Expect a lot of elevation change, blind corners, off camber corners, and high speed straights. It is amazingly fun and one of the best course layouts in the US.

**You must have solo track experience to participate in this event. However we are accepting three track newbies to work with a PCA/BMW credentialed instructor. We ask that you sign up for either two or three days if you desire to be one of these students.**  If you have run solo at other events or attended a driving school conducted on track then you should be fine running in the DE group with no instructor.

Helmet requirements: HPDE group Snell M2005 min. For the two faster groups with their higher speed potential- Snell SA 2005 min.

This is *not* a race however transponders will be used to help sort drivers into groups by lap times. Transponders are available for rent from the host (tick the checkbox during registration). Transponders are optional for DE group. Choose the DE group for lazy lapping or slower lap times (2:20+ Thunderhill/1:55+ Laguna). TT/Medium for moderate lap times (2:02+ Thunderhill/1:42+ Laguna) and TT/Fast (sub-2:02 Thunderhill/sub-1:42 Laguna) for, well the faster lap times.

Please be prepared with new brake pads and new tires as the number of curves (26 give or take) will do a great job of consuming your consumables! If you want to bring extra pads there will be a technician available (for hire) to install.

Fuel will be available onsite from a mobile fuel vendor. Expect 100 Octane unleaded only and prices around $10/gal for the convenience. Alternatively you can drive 8 minutes into Fernley for unleaded from the pump.

Registration fee includes one catered lunch each day, you may purchase additional lunches on the next page.

Drivers are welcome to share a car however each driver must be individually registered and paid. You car will need to display numbers (your choice) while on track, either front/rear or both sides is acceptable.
