When you arrive at the track
New to the track, or just new to HPDE at NASA SoCal? Here is some information to help you find your way at your first event.
Prepare yourself and your car
Check the schedule as soon as you arrive at the track.
Look for the time of your mandatory drivers’ meeting, and the time of your first session.
Clean out your car including the trunk.
Use blue painter’s tape to put numbers on each side of your car.
Attend the drivers’ meeting
This is where you will receive instructions for the day.
Don’t be late; ALL drivers’ meetings are mandatory!
After the drivers’ meeting, you will go to your first classroom session, unless otherwise specified.
Go to tech so they can issue the appropriate sticker for your class.
Go to tech if you need:
Tech fees (cash only):
To change your car/driver information;
For a printed copy of the schedule;
To pick up or rent a transponder
To register for another session or event;
To turn in a completed minor waiver or complete/sign a minor waiver;
To sign a waiver and get a passenger wristband.
