Mike has one spot for him (S2k) and one spot for his son (Evo). Nick, is an awesome guy and got a bunch of spots for him and his employees at Rallysport Direct.

Message from Trey regarding the track day...

Track Day Rules

A few guidelines I'd like to establish as a means to provide us all with a safe and enjoyable track day.

1) No passengers for the first few sessions, unless the driver holds a track license (ie: SCCA/NASA racing, TT, instructor, etc). In the afternoon, we may allow some driver's to take a passenger if we feel their driving skill warrants. Its a safety thing, nothing else. Novice drivers need to focus on the racing line and developing good habits, not impressing their friend in the passenger seat with their finely GT4 honed racing skills.

For those of you who want to have some instruction, we will thankfully have some experienced drivers willing to put their necks on the line (joking!) and ride with you.

2) Starts will be from the pits, and will be spaced out to allow drivers the ability to focus on their driving and not the car behind/in front of them. Remember, this isn't a race!

3) No passing for the first few sessions. If you get stuck behind a slower driver and want to go at your pace, you will need to go to the hot pits, maintain the safe pit speed, and then re-enter the track once instructed by the person operating the pits. CHECK YOUR MIRRORS when entering the track, don't assume no one is coming simply because you were given the go-ahead. People have died during lapping days because of people entering/exiting the pits incorrectly (not a joke). PAY ATTENTION.

If after a few sessions we feel certain run groups can pass, we will designate areas you are allowed to pass if given a point by. Passing rules will be fully explained in the event we decide to allow passing.

4) Any spins or 4 wheels off require you to immediately return to the pits so we can talk to you. Failure to return to the pits will result in a black flag, and you will not be permitted to run the next session. If you spin or have 4 wheels off more than once in a session, you will not be permitted to run the rest of the session.

The reason for requiring a pit-in is so we can inspect the vehicle for damage. This is for YOUR SAFETY and the safety of those on the track with you.

If you do spin or go off, re-enter the track slowly and drive off line until you're up to speed. We don't need you bringing gravel and other debris on the track for the other driver's to slide around on.

5) If you drive too aggressively, or pass in an unauthorized manner, you will not be allowed to participate in the remainder of the event and no refunds will be given.

6) No timing systems will be in place. The event is not a timed, competition event. Focus on your driving, not setting fast lap of the day. If you are interested in that type of competition, we encourage you to look into NASA Time Trial or other related events.

7) Helmets required by all drivers and passengers anytime on track. Helmets will NOT be available at the track, you will need to bring one with you or arrange to share one with someone in another run group. Run groups will be run on a tight schedule, so if you are sharing with someone that runs immediately before or after, please plan accordingly to exchange helmets in a quick and safe manner.

8) Breathe normally, relax and keep your eyes up. Maintain a light grip on the steering wheel and enjoy yourself. Ask plenty of questions. It doesn't matter how fast you think you are on the street or at an auto-x, track driving is a different animal. Leave the ego at home and open yourself to learning and having fun.

We don't want any car to car contact, any crashes, injuries, etc. This event is so we can all have a good time driving our cars on the track. You will NOT be fast the first time out on track, don't worry about trying. Focus on developing a good racing line, and slowly increase your speed over the course of the day. If you FEEL like you're driving fast, you are likely overdriving your own capabilities. SLOW DOWN. As your skill improves, you will go faster and actually feel slower. That's because your brain is better trained for the tasks at hand.

If you are behind a slower car/driver, use the opportunity to focus on practicing skills such as heel-toe downshifting, checking mirrors, improving vision, monitoring corner stations, etc. There are still PLENTY of things to work on even if you're not able to drive the car at 10/10ths all the time. Track driving encompasses much more than simply driving as fast as you can. The more you can work on training yourself mentally for all the other tasks involved, the better and safer you'll be.

We will be going over this and some of the other tips and tricks during the driver's meeting in the morning. If you fail to make it to the driver's meeting, you won't be allowed on track [period]. So, make sure you get there on time and prepared to drive.

Thanks,
Trey @ COBB

oh snap, extremely strict rules. What will I have to do to earn the right to give passengers a ride? I have two friends who took the day off work to come out. I'd be really disapointed if I can't give them rides. Plus ask anyone, I'm the biggest grand-ma driver out.

ps please point me to a good/inexpensive place to buy a helmet, I'll need two. If some one has one or two for sale, speak up!

If K-Grill gives my helmet back to me it will be available to use for the day. Otherwise hit some of the local motorcycle shops. They usually have a huge selection of lids to choose from.

Helmet requirements are like NASA's HPDE,
"Use a proper fitting helmet that meets Snell 1990 (SA1990; M1990) or newer (or
equivalent) standards for cars or motorcycles."

Giving rides will be something we decide as the day go on, no guarantees. We want to have a safe and enjoyable event, and in doing so putting as few people at risk as possible.

Thanks,
Trey @ COBB

Are there any other safety requirements besides a helmet (i.e. long pants, long sleeves, gloves, etc...)?

Other safety requirements will be based on the vehicle you are driving. For most all street cars, long pants will be our only requirement/strong suggestion. Short Sleeve shirts are ok. No gloves required though if you have them they are definitely welcome.

If you show up in a race car, or have a car you know is a potential fire risk (ie: altered/non-stock fuel or oil lines) be prepared to be required additional safety equipment.

If you need equipment locally, try contacting Rally Sport Direct. I know they have stock in Sparco and perhaps other equipment. I had to get some glooves for a track event recently myself and Rally Sport had several options in stock.

Cheers,
Trey @ COBB

Do they have gas pumps on site that we would be able to use? Any higher octane?

So are all the Subaru guys going to be on street tires or are some of you ripping out some grip?
