Event Requirements

Registration closed August 12, 2018 11:59 PM on August 12, 2018 11:59 PM PDT Registration ends August 12, 2018 11:59 PM on August 12, 2018 11:59 PM PDT Registration opens February 4, 2018 12:00 AM on February 4, 2018 12:00 AM PST Registration runs from February 4, 2018 12:00 AM to August 12, 2018 11:59 PM

Track Day Requirements: Safety is our primary concern. We require a helmet certified as SNELL M (novice school only) or SA2000 or newer. We have helmets available to rent ($10) also.

We strongly recommend 100% cotton or Nomex clothing: underwear/bra/socks, long-sleeve shirts, long pants; leather shoes and gloves (no nylon inserts). Long pants and closed-toe shoes are required. 

If you have made track driving your hobby, we highly recommend that you invest in Nomex driving attire. Please do your research before buying, as "not all that glitters is gold." We also recommend installing at least a partial roll cage in your car (but this is not a requirement for driver training days).

You will bring your own vehicle. It may be a daily-driver, modified street car, or fully-prepped racecar. It must be in good condition, free of leaks or safety issues, with fully-functioning seat belts (for driver and instructor), and plenty of brakes and tire tread. Convertibles/open-cockpit cars must have approved functional roll bar(s) -- see note below. No pop-up roll bars will be allowed.

Cars will be inspected before being allowed on the track. This inspection and roll bar acceptance is not a certification of a car’s safety or its ability to withstand the stress of this driving event. You are fully responsible for finding and remedying any safety issues prior to the event.

Per our insurance requirements, all entrants must be 18 years of age or older and show a valid driver's license at registration.

Items Covered in the Vehicle Technical Inspection:

  • Adequate tire tread
  • Proper tire inflation
  • Loose items removed
  • No cracks in Window in Drivers View
  • Seat belts in good condition and working order
  • Driver and passenger seats secure
  • Brake lights functional
  • Ensure the positive terminal on the battery is properly covered
  • The battery needs to be mechanically secured to the car
  • The helmet requirement is Snell SA2000 or Snell M2000, or newer.
  • Roll bar (convertibles)
  • Eye protection (convertibles)


  1. Convertibles are defined as cars with retractable tops, whether soft-top or folding hard top and all cars without any top.
  2. Convertibles must use a 5- or 6-point harness for each occupant.
  3. Cars equipped with only factory pop-up posts or similarly activated rollover protection are not allowed.
  4. Cars with factory installed, fixed roll over protection (targas, T-Tops, etc) are a Cascade Sports Car Club decision on an individual basis.
  5. The roll bar must be within 6 inches of the back of the occupants' helmets and the top of the helmets must be below the top of the roll bar.  If the roll bar is farther than 6 inches away from the back of the helmets, the top of the roll bar must be 2 inches above the top of the helmet and the occupants must pass a helmet reference plane standard.
  6. Material, welding, bracing and mounting plates for roll bars must meet certain standards.  Listed below are a few of the standards.  Be sure to review the entire Appendix E for a complete list of roll bar standards in the "CSCC Convertible Roll Bar Requirements".
    • Material - Drawn Over Mandrel mild steel tubing (SAE 101,1020,1025 or equivalent)
    • Size of tubing is based on vehicle curb weight.  Curb weight includes fluids but not occupants.
      • Under 2000 lbs, 1.50 x 0.120 or 1.75 x 0.090 inches  (outside diameter x wall thickness)
      • 2001 lbs - 3500lbs, 1.75 x 0.120 inches (outside diameter x wall thickness)
      • over 3500 lbs, 2.00 x 0.120 inches (outside diameter x wall thickness)
    • Welding shall conform to American Welding Society D1.1, Structural Welding Code, Chapter 10, Tubular Structures
    • Bracing, roll bars shall have two (2) fore/aft braces with tubing diameter and wall thickness the same as the roll bar.  Roll bars shall have a diagonal brace with tubing the same size as the roll bar.
    • Mounting plates for roll bar hoops and braces shall be attached to the chassis and must be at least 3/16-inch thick.  If mounting plates are bolted they shall have a minimum of three (3) bolts per mounting plate.
    • The list above are a few of the standards required for roll bars.  Be sure to read and understand the entire Appendix E to avoid having your roll bar fail inspection at our Driver Trainings.
