Key items to note:

1. Sound testing will be required the morning of the event. If you don't pass you will receive a promo code for your registration fees to use toward a future NASA AZ event (less a $20 processing fee).

2. You may purchase add'l guest/crew passes for $20/each. No guests will be allowed onsite without a pass due to site limitations. The crew pass includes the passenger ride along wristband. Please note their name in the comments section of the registration page.

3. If you are part of a team, the second driver will need to purchase a crew pass.


How do I pre-check my cars sound levels before showing up?

We get this question all of the time and here is what we have learned:

* Most cars will pass the sound requirements if left stock

* Some cars with ultra high output motors may not pass sound even if completely stock (Ex: Ford GT500, Ferrari, etc.)

* If your vehicle's sound levels are questionable, they should be tested prior to showing up onsite so save administrative time for everyone. *Some* decibel meter applications for smart phones are relatively accurate (within 2 dB) when compared to AMP's high end sound testing equipment. To pass sound at AMP, you need to be @ 96dB or less when full throttle (under load, not just revving in neutral) and near redline when measured from 50' away from the track surface.


Rules

All participants should be aware of and follow the NASA Club Codes & Regulations found here (http://nasaproracing.com/rules/ccr.pdf)

All participants should also be aware of the NASA Arizona region specific Supplemental Rules found here (https://nasaaz.com/nasa-arizona-supplemental-rules/)


“What time do I need to show up?”

This is the #1 question we are asked, especially by the folks new to NASA. See the event schedule (below or attached) for exact times but we always recommend ~1 hour prior to the drivers meeting (@ 7:30AM) to allow enough time to get through the front gate, sign the waiver, find a spot, check in with Driver Info (if you’re HPDE1) and get your car through tech and any other last min items before the drivers meeting.


Tech Inspection

All HPDE cars require an onsite tech inspection prior to being allowed on track. HPDE participants should print and fill out the "HPDE Tech" Form prior to arriving to tech. Race group & Time Trial competitors will use the “Annual Race Car” Tech forms if they haven’t already done their 2021 annual inspection. Forms can be found @ https://www.nasaproracing.com/forms
