Fabulous Tutorial Video from our friends at WDL --> Podium Club Track Guide Clockwise - YouTube
Camping/Gate Times - Camping is available all weekend. Dropping off of equipment (i.e. "Priority Check-In") is available as well. The track now charges NASA for this service so we ask that you pay for the appropriate option (Camping @ $30 or Priority Check-In @ $20).
Anyone entering the facility will need to sign the Podium Club Waiver. NASA also needs an original copy of signed NASA Waiver. All drivers MUST sign BOTH to get on track. Anyone else must show proof (i.e. Wristband/s) that they signed at least one of them to be on the property.
Fri Practice - The track will be open for "Podium Club Members" to drive as a normal Member day. NASA members who are registered for Sat and/or Sun may also drive on Friday ($350/full day 9AM-5PM or $200/afternoon only 1-5PM). Registration and payment can be handled at the track.
Sat Night BBQ
We will host a Sat night BBQ once the track goes cold. Menu is TBD.
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)
Race car annual "renewals" can be done 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 so that there is an opportunity to fix any found not in compliance. If a safety item is identified onsite, you may not be able to drive.
NOTE: Annual Tech will be available on Fri afternoon (2-5PM) and all day Sat & Sun.
Will be located just South of the metal shipping containers near track entrance.
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.
Drivers Meetings / Downloads
The Sat AM drivers meeting is mandatory for ALL drivers, instructors, officials/admin. All other meeting times and locations will be announced by your respective Group Leader directly after the drivers meeting.
Looking to take a passenger along for a ride on track? No problem but there's a few more steps required:
1. Passengers need to be 18 (with photo ID proof of age)
2. Passengers are only allowed in HPDE3, HPDE4 or Time Trial
3. Passengers are required to sign the "Passenger Waiver" (in addition to the general "Gate Waiver")
4. Pay the $20 fee
Need to be checked out at registration
Need to be returned to registration within 30 mins of your final session to avoid penalties.
