Event Requirements

HPDE Track Day Requirements

Safety is our primary concern. Cars and personal safety equipment will be inspected on the day of the event prior to being allowed on 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.

 

PERSONAL SAFETY

  • A helmet certified as SNELL M2005 (novice school only) or SA2005 or newer is required. We have a limited quantity of helmets available to rent ($10).
  • Long pants and closed-toe shoes are requiredWe strongly recommend 100% cotton or Nomex clothing: underwear/bra/socks, long-sleeve shirts, long pants; leather shoes and gloves (no nylon inserts).
    • 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." 

 

VEHICLE SAFETY

You will bring and use 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 must be the same level & quality for both), and plenty of brakes and tire tread. We also recommend installing at least a partial roll cage in your car (but this is not a requirement for HPDE).

HPDE participants may not be allowed on track if their instructor does not feel safe in the vehicle (concerns about seats, seat belts, equipment status, etc.). The organizers will make every effort to secure a replacement instructor for the HPDE participant, but in the situation where one cannot be substituted the participant will not be able to go on track in the car. If this situation occurs, then the participant will not be charged for the event. It is the participants responsibility to ensure that their car is in satisfactory condition, especially all safety equipment, for the rigors of high performance driving on a racetrack. 

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

The following are the vehicle items that are covered in the event 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
  • Roll bar (convertibles)
  • Eye protection (convertibles)

 

SPECIAL NOTE ABOUT CONVERTIBLES

Convertibles are defined as cars with retractable tops, whether soft-top or folding hardtop. Convertibles are not allowed to participate in sessions driven at speed without a roll bar and a 5- or 6-point harness for each occupant (which also implies seats that allow for proper mounting and routing of the 5- or 6-point harness). Arm restraints are strongly recommended. The use of a roll bar meeting the minimum requirements is described in CSCC-ConvertibleRollbarRequirements.pdf. Cars equipped with only factory popup posts are not allowed.

Cars with factory-installed, fixed rollover protection or removable roof sections (including Targa tops and T-tops) may be allowed only if the both the driver and passenger are within the protection of the Helmet Reference Plane described in section A.1 in CSCC-ConvertibleRollbarRequirements.pdf

 

PAYMENT

This online registration process uses a "deferred payment" process. Your credit card will not be charged until the week prior to the event. A pre-authorization check is done electronically to confirm validity and capacity of your account by msr.com, much like a hotel might do. The pre-authorization should fall off your account within 24-72 hours depending on your bank card's practices. DEBIT CARD USERS, you can use your card on msr.com, but you should treat the pre-authorization as a debit and account for this until the "hold" is dropped by your bank. 

Note that your registration is reserving one (1) of a limited number of spots for this event. As such, you must be aware of our cancellation policy, which is:

  • No charges will be processed on your account if you cancel 7 or more days before the event date 
  • A $50 cancellation fee will be charged if you cancel 2 to 6 days before the event 
  • You will be charged the full amount if you cancel less than 48 hours before the event or are a no show 

*** PLEASE NOTE that your registration reserves one (1) of a limited number of spots for this event. You will be charged even if you do not participate and you do not cancel prior to the event. 

 

HPDE Intermediate Requirements

  • You must have previously participated in either a CSCC HPDE Novice track day or have attended another similar HPDE track day or driving school that offers similar curriculum.

HPDE Advanced Requirements

  • Must have prior approval from a CSCC instructor for participating in HPDE Advanced, or have a verifiable history of solo HPDE track day events within the past two (2) years. 
    • This prior history must be present in your MotorsportReg.com account. Otherwise, you will need to submit this driving history to the event registrar via email. 
  • Must have a passenger seat and seat belts that offer the same level of protection as the driver. (For example, having a race seat with race harness for the driver and an OEM seat & seat belts for the passenger would not be acceptable.) 
    • Depending on your prior history and approval for CSCC HPDE Advanced, you may be required to have an instructor check ride for the first session unless you've received prior approval from the event registrar. 
  • Must understand and obey all flags and CSCC HPDE passing rules. 
    • You will be driving without an instructor and you will be expected to follow all rules and safety communications at all times.

  • You must have a Competition License (ICSCC, SCCA Regional or National, CACC, NASA or FIA).
    • If you are looking to test / shakedown a race car but you do not have a valid race license, then you will need to register in one of the HPDE sessions. 
  • You must have a fully prepared race car with all applicable safety equipment in good working condition.
    • A current annual inspection for your vehicle can be accepted for the HPDE/TnT event technical inspection.
