Vehicle Mechanical Support- we can provide tire pressure service and visual checks but cannot guarantee we will have the proper tools needed to cover any type of car that show up. 

We strongly encourage the drivers do a proper wheel torque, brake pad check, and brake fluid flush prior to their arrival. The track can be very hard on brakes; with pads and brake fluid taking the brunt. Tires need to have plenty of tread as well. 

Registration- waivers need to be signed and wristbands will be provided to identify the drivers for the particular driving area. Wristbands must be shown in order for drivers to go onto the Autocross or Track.
