HPDE / Open Track Event at Streets of Willow Springs
All types and makes of cars welcome! The Streets of Willow is a great short track, and local favorite. This track provides a good start for novices, yet gives advance drivers a challenge as well. We'll be running the full track with the bowl. This is a 1.8 mile road course with 14 turns and three elevation changes, and plenty of run-off space for a safe track going experience. This is a timed event, there will be multiple cars on the track, beginner groups will adhere to strict passing rules in specific safe-passing zones (straight's) when waved to pass only. Vehicles are grouped by driver experience and speed.
January 19th, paddock arrival 7am-8am. Drivers must attend mandatory drivers meeting at 8:15am. I suggest you get there before 8am for a good pit spot, get registered, (tech if you have not already done so
), get your transponder, helmet, etc.
Regularly $120, now $95 for the full day
of track sessions with timing/transponder (coupon code sow33)!

Be sure to download a Tech Inspection Form. Present completed form at the morning of the event. If you need help with self tech, see a mechanic or contact be BEFORE the track day.
WILL I DAMAGE MY CAR?
Driving on track is a little bit rougher on your car. If you are running street tires, you probably will not use more than 2/32" of tread. However, this is really up to you. If you are set on trying to drift around every corner, your tires will wear much more quickly. Typical, well controlled fast driving will not use up your tires as long as they have a good amount of life remaining. You should make sure you have at least 50% of your brake pad left before showing up at the track. If you have less, it may be wise to get fresh pads installed. Novices typically will experience much less wear than an experienced driver, because they are not pushing their cars as hard.
BUT I'VE NEVER BEEN ON A TRACK BEFORE...
You must sign up for the beginner group. Group instruction is given to all beginner group participants. There will be a general driver's meeting, covering the different flags and their meanings, as well as the passing rules. After the driver's meeting, there will be an additional beginners classroom session, followed by an on-track lead-follow session for you to familiarize yourself with the track at a comfortable pace, following an instructor.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
Closed toe shoes are required. Long sleeve shirts and pants are preferred.
