Additional Information

Arriving:

1)      For those joining the run, I will coordinate everything at the gate just follow the MINI in front of you.

2)      If you are arriving separately, tell the gate worker you are with the SCCA MINI Car Corral. 

         a) Any issues, have them contact Chris Doherty.

3)      You will be asked to sign the general waiver at the gate, and given a wrist band (don't lose it!)

4)      The car corral will be located directly across from the main entrance to the track.  There will be large banners and a popup 

         setup denoting the area.  

5)      Waivers - Chris will ensure everyone has signed the SCCA waiver in the morning, and we will provide an additional wrist

         band for the track touring laps.

 

During the event:

1.      Spectating: You are free to visit any spectator areas or grandstands within the track confines.  The outer parts of the track is

         a great place to watch the racing, and the Car Corral will be in a prime location.

         a.      I strongly encourage everyone to bring folding chairs, umbrellas, etc.  If bringing canopies, make sure you have a way

                  to secure them down if it is windy.  Use best judgement here.

         b.      We are still confirming if the group will have Paddock access while racing is going on.  This is TBD.

2.      A live audio broadcast from the announcing booth will be on FM 88.7

 

Lunch Track Touring laps:

1.      Lunch laps: Lunch time laps are limited to 25 and first come first served.  Chris will shuttle everyone to paddock and grid.

2.      We expect this will happen between 11:45 and 12:30, depending on track cleanup and race group schedules.  This could be

         earlier or later.  

3.      Lunch laps will follow the Track Tour rules here.

 

Food & Snacks: 

1.      We will also be providing light individual portion snacks and coolers with chilled beverages.

         a.      The 'Che Summit' concession stand will be open in the race paddock.  Burgers/dogs/nachos, etc. will be available for

                  purchase.

         b.      You can bring their own meals, grills, snacks, etc.  There are no outside food restrictions at the track!

         c.       Your participants can bring beer, wine, alcohol, etc.  Just no intoxicated driving during lunch touring laps, which

                   should be fairly obvious.

Glad you are going to make it, the drive out is a good time with a lot of quality roads. The SCCA folks were great hosts.

There are links posted now to sign up for the drive to the track, the track event, and the club picnic being held in conjuction with the event in case you haven't gotten a notice. 
(Note: the "food" part of the track event should probably be updated with the picnic details?)

We are still working on the details for the picnic.

 

We made a separate sign up for the picnic so that when we need everyone to sign up for food etc, we can just use that link instead of clogging up the track/run sign ups. 😝

 

 Sorry for so many sign ups, but there's a method to our madness.

This is the best link to sign up for everything
