Event Details and FAQ
If you're racing, please be sure to tell the gate you are with GPS Track Time. They will give you a wristband so you can enter and exit the facility throughout the day.
Once you are in you will follow the driveway to the pit area. You will need to check in with the GPS Track Time staff and get your car teched at the tech garage. CMC will be parking on the left of the pits on the grass near the grid and track entrance.
There will be a drivers meeting that you will have to attend at the GPS Track Time tent. The drivers meeting will provide you all the necessary information on track conditions, instructors, and scheduled run groups for the day.
In order for you to get on the track safely your car will need to pass a tech inspection. This inspection insures that you have a vehicle deemed safe for the race track. The forum below is an example of what the tech inspectors will be looking for.
What is this about?
CMC Road Course Track Day is a brand new event for 2016! This is not only the chance to hang with bros, but to push our cars to limit, have fun, learn, and for some resolve all the smack talk that's been taking place all summer! This is a HPDE style track day so you can get comfortable at your own pace. Even if you're not running, please come out and support CMC. We want to bring out as many cars as we can to show why CMC is the best!!
What do I need to bring if I want to race?
you will need a Snell SA rated helmet. SA2005 is only acceptable if it can be verified it was manufactured after 2005; we highly recommend SA2010/SA2015 certification per the recommendation by the Snell Foundation. Look for the label inside your helmet (you will not be able to participate without it!) Please note that bike helmets are M rated and not allowed.
The Autobahn Country Club has 20 helmets of various sizes available for rent for $30.
Enough talk!! Who wants to race???
