On the day of the Driver's Ed event plan to arrive at the Track at about 7:30 to 8:00am.
This will give you time to park and onload your car, get through the check in line, drive through the tech line
and familiarize yourself with our schedule. In general, the following things are what you can expect to do, and
the procedures you may encounter.
Stop at the gate to check with security, sign their waiver, and then proceed to the paddock area as directed.
In the paddock find a suitable parking spot and remove all loose items from the car, including floor mats,
garage door openers, cassettes, contents of door bins and glovebox, trunk, etc. At
registration check-in show your PCA membership card & drivers license, produce your Tech Inspection Form,
it's advisable to also bring a Drivers Log Book ready to be stamped or signed.
Sign the event waiver. Pick-up the event sticker for your car with your run group color, an event schedule and
put on your event wristband. Affix your car registration sticker to the windshield in the top driver side location.
Affix your car numbers with either painter's masking tape or white shoe polish if you did not bring vinyl or magnetic numbers.
At the tech line wait with your car, unlatch the trunk and engine hood for inspection.
Be prepared to demonstrate your brake lights,
and throttle response and return to idle. You may be asked to hold the brakes on while the lug nuts are checked for torque. Be ready to show your
helmet and present your log book for inspection by the tech chief. He or she should then sign or stamp your car's registration sticker.
Return to your parking space. Review the schedule. Check your vehicle fluid levels (coolant, oil, brake fluid, p/s fluid)
and tire pressures.
At the driver's meeting listen carefully.
This information is important for your safety and your enjoyment of the event. Don't be afraid to ask questions.
After the driver's meeting make sure you know when your run group is scheduled. Listen for your call to staging.
Between runs hydrate yourself with plenty of water even if the weather is cool. Check your tire pressures to see
if they need adjusting. Let your car cool down, and then check fluid levels again.
