Mandatory for all first time racers!  Anyone is welcome to come but we require all first time racers to attend one parent meeting when we’ll go over how the car inspection, practice time and race day work. What equipment to bring for your pit and pit crew. What time to come to set up. We’ll explain about car pushers and how random pairing, timing and the starting gate and laser finish are controlled and much more! We’ll have plenty of time for questions. Sign up for one of the meetings when you register. IMPORTANT New Racers – You will not be allowed to race if you didn’t attend one of the parent meetings.

Mandatory Car Inspection

All cars MUST pass Inspection before they will be allowed on the racecourse.  Brakes will be tested, weight , axle and steering will be checked. Drivers must be able to brake the car independently.

Also for all 7 & 8 year olds  the seats must be enclosed with solid sides. We recommend that all cars which are already built put solid sides on either side of the driver. See an example here
