This race event is intended as a moving showcase for vintage/historic sports and racing cars. On-track driver conduct is to demonstrate an attitude of friendly, wheel-to-wheel competition. The cars are the show; winning is secondary to a clean event, and no driver shall commit to a situation which leaves no margin for error – their own or another’s.  Drivers found at fault in damage-causing incidents will withdraw from the event and will be placed on probation for a period of thirteen months, with notification of said probation forwarded to other sanctioning organizations via the Vintage Motorsports Council’s Infraction List. Further incidents while on probation may result in additional penalties.  Any car suffering damage in an accident must be repaired and re-inspected by Scrutineering before continuing in competition. Minor/cosmetic repairs may be allowed; no car will be allowed to continue after suffering structural damage or rollover.

First time competitors at Waterford Hills are encouraged and welcome.  A track familiarization and orientation session will be held Friday morning prior to open practice.  We offer Friday practice and instruction service at no additional charge to help ensure a enjoyable weekend for you and your fellow entrants.

Waterford Hills is located in what is now a residential area. Many facets of the track’s operation are strictly controlled by local Township ordinances. Such restrictions include the hours of operation and sound control. Race engines may not be operated prior to 10:00 a.m. or after 6:00 p.m. on any day.  Questions of sound limitations may be directed towards the event chair.

Every vehicle will be inspected and cars without an approved sticker will not be allowed on the track. The primary purpose of this inspection is to ensure that the vehicle is mechanically sound and safe for competition. Among the items to be inspected will be the roll bar, seat belts/harness/anchorages, steering linkage, brake lines, suspension battery mountings, exhaust/muffler system, brake lights, oil lines, fire extinguisher, tires and driver’s safety equipment.
Vehicles will be inspected in each competitor’s paddock space and competitors having vehicle logbooks should present them at that time. Cars must be presented in a clean condition and “ready to race.” The Chief Scrutineer is empowered to exclude any competitor for general appearance or condition.
Ensuring that the eligibility rules of this event are met will be the responsibility of each individual competitor and his fellow competitors. Only items of gross non-conformity will be noted during the technical inspection.
The entry fee will be refunded to any competitor whose vehicle fails to pass the technical inspection.

Access to the paddock will be restricted to vehicular traffic only while race vehicles are on the track. There is limited space for transporters and large trailers in the paddock. This will limit competitors to the maximum of one support vehicle per entry. Please note: A support vehicle is one enclosed trailer or one vehicle (i.e., car, van, or truck).  There is a designated area for tow trailers outside the paddock if they are not the support vehicles. The support vehicle sticker is required to be affixed to the actual support vehicle. NO EXCEPTIONS. Unauthorized vehicles will be removed from the paddock area. Multiple entries for one car must share one support vehicle; only one pass will be issued. We have a very crowded paddock. Please drive slowly and carefully. Remember, drivers are responsible for the actions of their crew. We thank you in advance for your past and future cooperation in helping our paddock run smoothly. Children under 12 years of age are permitted in the paddock only if strictly supervised by an adult. Waterford Hills is a pet friendly facility, however, pets must be kept leashed or otherwise restrained at all times and owners are responsible for picking up after their pets.  Please follow rules of common courtesy and consideration to others.

NO ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES may be opened or consumed in the pits and paddock until the completion of the last race of the day. Crew members or guests who violate these rules will be ejected. Drivers will be responsible for the conduct of their crew at all times.

Large tents will be erected for use as garage space in lieu of support vehicles. A limited number of spaces will be available for rent to competitors. Those who wish to reserve space should check the appropriate box on the application. Note that larger tents may be used for multiples competitors. Space will be allotted based on date of application received. Competitors requesting space will be advised of availability.  Cost of tent rental will not be refundable if applicant cancels.
