However, if you do bring your pet, it must remain restrained (leash, cage, pen, etc.) at all times. Do not dump oil, gas or coolant anywhere. Take your fluids home. You must take everything you bring to the track with you when you leave. Use caution and common sense when raising your car and supporting it on jack stands. Part of the paddock area is grass so it is recommended that you use plywood or metal plates beneath your jacks and jack stands. No glass containers are allowed on the property. Anyone riding an ATV or motorized scooter must be a licensed driver and wear a helmet.

The Following Regulations Pertain to TrackCross Only.
The course will be run between two points on track marked by pylons. Autocross timing equipment will be used for timing purposes therefore no transponder will be needed. Placing any tires off the paved racing surface at any time during a run will result in a DNF.
Eligible Classes: All SCCA Solo Classes (see 2018 SCCA Solo National rules) and a catch-all for any Time Trial cars that don’t fit into any Solo class (TT).
Driver Eligibility: All drivers must hold a valid State Driver’s License. All drivers aged 15 to 17 must contact event officials before the event. A completed Annual Parental Consent, Release and Waiver of Liability, Assumption of Risk and Indemnity Agreement and a completed Minor’s Assumption of Risk Acknowledgment is required (note: forms vary by
state and witnessing method). A SCCA Time Trials or Competition License is not required. Current SCCA membership (weekend memberships are available) is required.
PASSENGERS: Passengers are not allowed except when cleared by the Time Trial Safety Steward or Event Chair for instructional purposes.
HELMET AND EQUIPMENT: All helmets must be M05, SA05 or later. There is a considerable gap between a minimum standard and the best protection that current technology can provide. It is recommended that seats, restraint systems, roll bars, and helmets meet the highest safety standards possible. All participants shall wear shoes which fully cover the foot at least to the ankle and long pants while on course.
VEHICLE PREPARATION AND INSPECTION: The entrant is responsible for insuring that the vehicle being used is properly prepared for operation under elevated acceleration, braking and cornering forces. Have a Tech inspection sheet completed and available to present to the SCCA tech inspector.
FLAGS: • Yellow, standing – You are approaching an incident where your and other’s safety are at risk. The racing surface may be clear but there is immediate danger to you or others if you left the racing surface. Slow significantly and proceed thru the incident at a reduced speed. There is no passing from the flag until past the emergency incident.
• Yellow, waving - You are approaching an incident that has great danger to you and others. The racing surface may be partially or completely blocked. Slow significantly and be prepared to stop. All efforts should be made to proceed through a Waving Yellow Flag in single file order. There is no passing from the flag until past the emergency incident. The no passing zone starts at a perpendicular line across the track from the flag and ends at a perpendicular line across the track from the last component of the incident causing the yellow flag. The last component may be the car, driver, responding officials, other vehicles and/or large debris.
• Red & yellow, striped – there is debris on the track ahead, possibly oil, coolant, dirt, an errant animal and/or parts of a fellow driver’s car. Be prepared to respond accordingly.
• Red – STOP as quickly as safely possible, pull to the side of the track to allow maximum room for emergency vehicles, stay in your car and await instructions from a corner worker. We REALLY don’t want to show this flag!
ELIGIBILITY OF VEHICLES: All vehicles must provide factory original (or better) seats that are securely mounted, seatbelts (SFI or FIA rated are recommended), and roll over protection for both driver and in-car instructor (if used). Hardtop and Targa top vehicles are allowable. Vehicles that are in compliance with road race, solo, rally or time trial rules are allowable. Drivers of open top vehicles should use arm restraints or run with the top up.
Convertibles: It is highly recommended that all convertible vehicles be equipped with an aftermarket roll bar that meets or exceeds the standards set in the SCCA HILL CLIMB Safety Standards. However, convertibles should meet one of the following criteria:
1. The vehicle is equipped with an aftermarket roll bar that meets or exceeds the standards set in the SCCA HILL CLIMB Safety Standards.
2. The vehicle is equipped with documented factory installed roll over protection (examples of manufacture documented roll over protection would include hydroformed and reinforced a-pillars or windshield frames and factory installed roll bars and/or “popup” bars that are designated as roll over protection.
3. The Vehicle is a 2006-year model or newer.

EVENT SCHEDULE/RUN GROUPS: The event schedule or run groups may be changed at the discretion of the Chief Steward, with concurrence by the Race Chair, depending on pre-race entry counts or as needed to accommodate situations that may be encountered during the event.
PASSING: There will be multiple cars on the course at any given time. Passing will be allowed on designated straights with a point by from the driver being overtaken. The overtaking driver shall not pass without a “point-by” from the driver being passed. Passing shall be started and finished within the designated passing zones as shown herein.

FLAGS AND THEIR MEANINGS:
• Yellow, standing – You are approaching an incident where your and other’s safety are at risk. The racing surface may be clear but there is immediate danger to you or others if you left the racing surface. Slow significantly and proceed thru the incident at a reduced speed. There is no passing from the flag until past the emergency incident.
• Yellow, waving - You are approaching an incident that has great danger to you and others. The racing surface may be partially or completely blocked. Slow significantly and be prepared to stop. All efforts should be made to proceed through a Waving Yellow Flag in single file order. There is no passing from the flag until past the emergency incident. The no passing zone starts at a perpendicular line across the track from the flag and ends at a perpendicular line across the track from the last component of the incident causing the yellow flag. The last component may be the car, driver, responding officials, other vehicles and/or large debris.
• Red & yellow, striped – there is debris on the track ahead, possibly oil, coolant, dirt, an errant animal and/or parts of a fellow driver’s car. Be prepared to respond accordingly.
• Red – STOP as quickly as safely possible, pull to the side of the track to allow maximum room for emergency vehicles, stay in your car and await instructions from a corner worker. We REALLY don’t want to show this flag!
• Blue / yellow stripe – a faster car is following. Allow it to pass at the next passing zone. Acknowledge the blue flag with a small wave to both the worker and the following car. This courtesy prevents tailgating, mirror driving, and promotes safety and reduces aggression. Observe the Blue/yellow striped flag.
• Black – enter the pits at the next opportunity to consult with an event official.
• Checkered - will only be shown on driver’s left at Starter stand. The session is over. Proceed on a cool-off lap by slowing down and using the brakes as little as is safe. Allow your car and yourself to cool down and relax. Proceed to pit lane and attempt to wipe that silly grin off your face.
