At the Track

On the day of the Drivers-Ed event, plan to arrive at the Track at about 7am. This will give you time to get through the Check-in and Tech-Line and familiarize yourself with our schedule. In general, the following are the procedures you will encounter:

 

Registration Check-in Show PCA Membership Card & Drivers License, Sign Waiver. Pick-up Event Package which includes the Event Schedule and Security Wristband. Any Give-a-ways are distributed here.
At Gate Sign Track Waiver and proceed to Paddock area.
In Paddock Find a suitable parking spot and remove all loose items from the car, including floor mats, garage door openers, DVDs, contents of door bins, glovebox, trunk, etc. It is useful to have a tarp or protective cover in case of rain. Attach car numbers and attach wrist band on left wrist. Ensure you have both Helmet and signed Tech Form. Proceed to Tech Line in the lower paddock in front of the Restaurant.
At Tech Line Wait with your car. Be prepared to demonstrate Brake Lights. Hold car on brakes while Wheel Nuts are Torque Checked. Be ready to show your Helmet and present your Signed Tech Form to the Tech Chief. He must also sign or stamp your Inspection Sticker. Return to your parking space. Review the Schedule. Check vehicle fluid levels (coolant, oil, brake fluid, p/s fluid) and tire pressures. Ask tire sponsor for advice If unsure. Relax and grab a free coffee and donut from the restaurant. Listen for announcement of the mandatory Drivers Meeting at 8:25.
At Drivers Meeting Listen Up! This information is important for your safety and your enjoyment of the event. Don’t be afraid to ask questions.
After Drivers Meeting Make sure you know when your run group is scheduled. Listen for call to Staging. HAVE FUN !
Between Runs Hydrate yourself with water or juice even if weather is cool. Check Tire Pressures to see if they need adjusting. Ask tire sponsor for advice if unsure. Let car cool down and then check fluid levels again. Relax and review run session.
