Event Requirements


Registration closed May 8, 2015 11:59 PM on May 8, 2015 11:59 PM MDT Registration ends May 8, 2015 11:59 PM on May 8, 2015 11:59 PM MDT Registration opens December 30, 2014 12:00 AM on December 30, 2014 12:00 AM MST Registration runs from December 30, 2014 12:00 AM to May 8, 2015 11:59 PM

Driver Requirements:

Valid drivers license. GDL is acceptable.  (Prospective students with only a learners permit should contact the registrar BEFORE registering).

- Valid registration and liability insurance on the participating vehicle.  Unlicensed and uninsured race vehicles are not suitable for this event.

MotorsportReg driver profile must be filled out INCLUDING PREVIOUS TRACK DRIVING EXPERIENCE. Your profile should also include information about transferable skills such as sanctioned racing events you have been a participant in, track driving schools you may have taken, lapping at other tracks, atutocross, time attack, solo, rally, etc. so we may assign you in the most appropriate run group. Unknown drivers without previous driving track experience in their profile will be placed in the novice run group.

- MINORS, whether participating or observing, must sign special waivers AND BOTH PARENTS MUST ALSO SIGN WAIVERS.  This MUST be completed in advance if both parents are not going to be in attendance at the track.  Waivers are available for download on our website ... please contact us if you have any questions.

 

Vehicle Requirements:

PERMITTED VEHICLES include track-worthy and safe sportscars only.  Trucks, Sport Utility Vehicles (SUVs), and Sport Activity Vehicles (SAVs) are NOT permitted without prior approval. Convertibles, cabriolets, and open-top cars ... please contact us BEFORE registering.

Vehicle technical INSPECTION completed in advance of the event.  Inspection form can be found at http://nabmw.webs.com/documents/NABMW.Inspection.Form.PDF.  The vehicle must be inspected by a licensed Automotive Service Technician with knowledge of the rigors expected in road course driving.

BRAKE FLUID must be less than six months old as of the event date.  Please note that the energy required to stop a vehicle at speed must be dissipated as heat. Repeated application of the brakes on a road course will cause a significant heat buildup.  This heat can cause a number of underlying mechanical problems to become apparent, in particular that water absorbed into aging brake fluid will boil (referred to as "boiling the brakes").  Should this happen, there will be enough steam in the brake lines to cause a SUDDEN AND COMPLETE FAILURE OF THE BRAKE SYSTEM. This is prevented when there is fresh brake fluid in the reservoir, lines and calipers.

HELMET:  Snell-approved M-2005 (motorcycle) or SA-2005 (motorsport) or newer helmets are permitted in all run groups. ALL Snell-approved helmets bear a Snell rating sticker, typically found by lifting up the helmet liner (you should not need to remove any glued portions of the liner to view the sticker).  Open-face helmets are preferred in vehicles with air bags; closed-face helmets are preferred in vehicles without air bags. If you do not have access to a helmet, a very limited number of helmets are available for rent (availability is shown when you get to the registration form).

CLOTHING:  Shirts with long sleeves and long pants are strongly recommended.  Clothing should be comfortable without restricting movement. Natural fibers (i.e. cotton) are preferred.  Smooth, rubber-soled shoes are recommended.  A thinner sole is preferred as this will enhance pedal feedback and feel.  Leather-soled shoes are not recommended.  Open-toed shoes are not permitted.

EVENT WILL GO RAIN OR SHINE … please be prepared.  No refunds for inclimate weather.
