1. Make sure that you check your car using the technical inspection guide before you come to the track.You may learn that your car may need additional maintenance. All cars must pass a technical inspection the morning of our event before being approved for track access.
- Check your mirror when entering a passing zone and allow passing. These are also good places to slow down a bit, check your gauges, listen to your car, and compose yourself.
Pit if you're holding many cars up and allow everyone to pass then go back out. Gives you breathing room and allows everyone to enjoy the track. Likewise, a fast car can pit and then return to the track after allowing for space. AVOID THE RED MIST OF TRACK RAGE.
- understand what the track flags mean and follow them.
3. Pitting cars must signal your intention to pit - this is done by holding your left arm out the window pointing up, making a fist.
4. Keep three to four car lengths (45-60 feet) between cars in the corner section. Keep a greater distance in the straight sections, especially where there are elevation changes, unless you are preparing to pass. Tailgating will create an accident.
5. Passengers must wear proper safety helmet. The ONLY people allowed to drive on the track are those who have signed up and paid. You may not allow your 'buddy' to drive your car on track.
6. Don’t "save” your car (try to keep it on the track) if you make an error. If you drop a wheel off of the pavement, ease off throttle and slow to a controlled speed. Merge back onto the track as traffic permits. "Saving” your car is considered jerking your car back onto the track, which usually causes loss of control and cutting back across track. Pit as soon as you come to pit row and check out your car. Mosport's cement walls have scars from people who've tried to "save" their car. It doesn't work!
7. Legitimate loss of control may occur, however, you will only receive one warning. If you go off track, pit as soon as you can and visually inspect your car before re-entering the track.
8. Any car to car contact, no matter how minor, will end of the day for the offender. Your insurance will not cover you during this event. Be responsible and avoid having to discuss this with the driver of the car you were in contact with.
9. Irresponsible behaviour – the driver will be asked to leave immediately via track security, no questions asked. This means:
-- NO RACING, this is a track lapping day, not a race event.
-- being rude to or not following direction from a CTMP staff, track marshal, instructor, pit out crew or organizer
-- No drifting, this is not a drift event. Drifting will be considered reckless driving. Tire smoke will cause distractions for other drivers.
-- No burnouts or smoke shows, again this will be a distraction.
-- No top speed competitions down the straight. That is, don't go down the straight to see how fast you can go with no intention of getting a good line on the next turn.
-- No doughnuts, smoke shows, etc., in the parking lots or pit areas
|10. Anybody exhibiting extremely poor car control will be considered a risk and will be asked to improve. If not, you will be asked to leave the track.
-- locking up the brakes in every corner
-- pushing through every corner
-- (not smooth) throttle steer/oversteer out of corners
-- sawing at the wheel to recover after corners
-- holding up traffic through the corners and then accelerating down the straights so no one can pass/lower powered cars can’t pass. (If you see a line of cars behind you, pit, let them pass, then go back out. Don’t hold other cars up. If you get a Blue Flag - allow passing!)
11. If you are having car problems, hold your arm out to indicate need to pit (left arm out and up (90 degree) with hand in a fist). Also put your hazard lights on. If your car has stalled, put on your hazard lights, stay in your car. Assistance will come to you.
12. If you borrow something, ask first and make sure that you give it back. If you lend something, make sure you remember who you lent it to. Need we say more?
Both Feet In - means clutch in and hard on the brakes. If you don't do this while spinning off track, you'll bounce back across the track and involve someone else in your accident!
Push yourself, push your car, but do not push the other drivers on the track. Be ready to have fun!
There are 40 spots available. The two groups will be based upon experience level and car capability. They are flexible groups, meaning that you may go out in either session. This event runs rain or shine, so come prepared for the weather.
Mandatory - if you miss this Driver's Meeting, then you sit out until the organizer or a delegate can go over the day with you.
