Hey guys! I wanted to write a thorough blog post with registration procedures and a rundown of what the day is going to look like Saturday. Please read this entirely before asking questions as they may be answered in the text. Thanks!
We will run rain or shine!
Arrive between 7:15-7:30am
Saturday is going to be a super packed day! On top of the Roadster Cup, there is the 86Cup and Redline practice, so it’s going to be a very busy day. Luckily, I’m going to get there early so that way we can have our own registration line. Before coming to register with me, you must have a Driver Waiver and general tech form filled out. I will have Roadster Cup tech forms available, but I recommend printing one ahead of time and bringing it with you. So you will have a grand total of 3 forms. Every participant MUST have a Roadster Cup tech form turned into timing. Failure to do so may result in disqualification.
Timing is free and included in your track day. Timing will only have one line for all drivers (so it will be a long wait!). I recommend heading straight to the timing line after registration. You will turn in your Roadster Cup Tech form to Timing. Before going to timing, make sure you have your tech form filled out with the appropriate class so Bryan (our timing guy) can input your information. You must have trade an ID or Credit Card to receive timing. Even if you rent a helmet and leave your ID for that, you still have to leave a second form of ID or a Credit Card with timing. Your ID will be returned to you once you’ve returned your transponder. If two people are sharing a car, each driver must have their own transponder and run only one transponder on the car at a time in correspondence with the driver. Failure to do so may result in disqualification.
The Roadster Cup run group will have a separate drivers’ meeting. We will go over gridding, flags, passing, and Roadster Cup procedures.
Roadster Cup Private Group
We will have a private run group. Initially we were going to grid the first session based on last year’s Buttonwillow times, however, since there will be rain, the first session will not be gridded. Sessions 2, 3, and 4 will be gridded.
Roadster Cup participants are not required to drive in the private group. If you are too fast or slow for the group, you can run in a group above or below. Times will only count from one run group if you are running in multiple groups, and you must tell me at the beginning of the day. Failure to do so may result in disqualification.
The Roadster Cup group will be the Purple group, so we will grid when they announce the session before (Green). We will try to make as many announcements as possible to make sure that you do not miss the call to grid. BE ON TIME TO GRID! Failure to be on time to grid may result in losing your grid spot, and you will be sent out at the back of the group.
Each driver has until their 4th session to set their fastest time.
If you have not received your Roadster Cup season sticker or Roadster Cup sticker I will have those available.
Awards will be immediately following Blue 5
We will take a group photo after the awards and Richie Yi will be our event photographer. We will be taking individual photos of the drivers who have not taken their profile photo yet.
We will have dinner following the track day at Willow Ranch in Buttonwillow and everyone is welcome to join. I am going to call ahead and reserve the entire back portion of the restaurant.
If you have any additional questions, feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I will see you guys Saturday!
