3 Day Garage (Thurs-Sun, up to 6 cars)
Each garage space will have a single allotted space for their hauler in the area across the fire lane from the garages. This holds true for multiple cars/teams sharing a garage. One garage = one support vehicle/trailer. Haulers may not necessarily be parked directly in back of each garage due to facility structures in this area; we will endeavor to park the hauler as closely as possible across from each garage for easy access. No awnings or other side structures beside or off the haulers will be permitted for those with garages (as we expect all garage-users to place all their support equipment in either the garages or within their hauler). Once the garages have been parked, we will allow other users of those garages to enter the Paddock near the Garages to unload their cars and equipment. After unloading, these cars and trailers must be removed from the Paddock and taken to Lot A. Vehicles must not be started and/or run in the garages. Vehicles may not be refueled in the garages. There is a space in front of each garage separate from the fire lane where vehicles can be pushed out to be run and refueled. Age and attire rules are in effect in this area and the rules will be enforced. These are safety considerations, and no exceptions can be made. There shall be no egress to pit road via the south-facing garage doors. These doors may be required to remain closed at all times if violations occur. No fueling of cars inside permanent garage buildings will be allowed. No fuel storage in the garages.
Event Shirt
2016 COTA Club Race shirt. Short Sleeve Unisex. This is a very soft shirt with 100% combed cotton. Shirts will be mailed directly to you before the event.
