4. Absolutely no metal-to-metal contact and you must use your turn signals.
5. Obey corner workers, safety staff and flags. If not, you will be black flagged and asked to stop. If this happens
more than once, you may be asked to leave.
6. Pay attention to your mirrors. If you see someone coming that is obviously faster, hold your line, slow up slightly
and let them by you.
7. Pass only on straight sections of the track...NOT on the corners.
8. No drivers or passengers under the age of 18. The only exception would be for a person that has appropriate
race credentials from an accredited racing group, such as SCCA or similar.
9. No hand held cameras or cell phones. No exceptions.
10. Any contact, and you caused it, you are done for the day.
11. If you get black flagged for dangerous driving, you will be parked for the session. If it happens more than once,
you will be asked to leave.
1. After each session, we recommend checking your brake pads (especially the front).
2. Never use the emergency brake for parking. Your brakes will be hot and you can easily warp the rotors.
3. For passenger cars, you may want to bring along an extra set of front brake pads and some brake fluid.
4. Before each session, check yourself. This activity can be very tiring and you don't want to over extend yourself on the
track. Stay hydrated.
5. Remember to remove all loose items from your car. You don't want anything flying around the car and ending up under
the brake pedal.
