Podium Club @ Attesa

Casa Grande, AZ 85193
Track Configuration - "Full Course - CW" both days
Fabulous Tutorial Video from our friends at WDL --> Podium Club Track Guide Clockwise - YouTube
Fri Practice - The track will be hosting their 2nd Annual Veterans Day SpeedFest on Friday prior to our event so there will NOT be a "practice day" available. We will be allowed to come in and setup for the weekend but there will be many on and off track activities including music, a bouncy house and slide, and kid’s activities. Food trucks will also be onsite to offer a variety of cuisines and refreshments.
Camping/Gate Times - Camping and/or drop-offs will be allowed but the gates will only be open during the below times:
Sat Night BBQ
We will have a Sat night BBQ once the track goes cold. Please BYOB/drinks.
All participants are expected to adhere to the NASA Club Codes & Regulations found here (https://members.drivenasa.com/rules/ccr.pdf)
All participants need to also be aware of the NASA Arizona region specific Supplemental Rules found here (https://nasaaz.com/nasa-arizona-supplemental-rules/)
NOTE: Attesa management also requested us to inform all participants that they do not allow Drones. They also warn of iPhone 14+ phones on track due to the ability to automatically deploy an ambo if the phone detects an accident.
“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 recommend 45-60 mins prior to the drivers meeting (@ 7:30AM) to allow enough time to 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.
All HPDE cars require an onsite tech inspection prior to being allowed on track (1 tech inspection is good for both days). 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 annual inspection. Forms can be found @ Forms - NASA (drivenasa.com)
NOTE: Race group is encouraged to get their renewals done at one of the offsite shops. We can do "renewals" onsite for a fee of $20 (via pre-reg - or cash onsite). Race cars without a logbook are highly encouraged to get their first tech inspection done offsite at a shop. Primarily we ask this is done so that there is an opportunity to fix anything that requires a change. If a safety item is identified onsite, you may not be able to race or even run in TT/HPDE, unless you can also fix it onsite. Tage will be able to handle some annual tech onsite on Friday near Driver Info.
Will be located just South of the metal shipping containers near track entrance in the tan RV or in the 48' white gooseneck trailer). Look for the "Driver Info" sign.
Rental helmets are available @ $20/day which will be available for registered drivers first. Helmet rentals for passengers will be on a 1st come 1st served basis after the Drivers Meeting.
