    SPRING TRACK DAY




    This event, terrific value for a lapping day. A great way to get your feet wet for a first time attendee or if your just looking to shake the rust off before Mosport with the Golden Horseshoe guys.
    Keep in mind, need to call DaSilva's to pre register and yes price is plus tax.

    Track day guidelines

    1. The first and most important rule for the lapping sessions is to remember these are driving sessions - not a race! There are no positions and no prize money or trophies. If you are driving erratic, competitively, or in violation of the rules and procedures, you will be ejected from the track and facility with no refund.

    2. Track will not provide any official lap times during lapping sessions.

    3. There shall be no contact between cars at any time.

    4. Do not stop unless disabled on track.

    5. Do not tailgate another car.

    6. Do not group together on the track.

    7. Do not block faster cars that are closing on you.

    8. Watch your mirrors, as you must signal faster cars by you.

    9. If you suspect serious mechanical problems while on the track, pull off the track slowly and await assistance. If you can continue, do so slowly and return to the pit area. Get off line and use hand signals and flashers to indicate that you have a problem while returning to the pits.

    10. If it starts to rain, slow down to a speed below that at which you know you can drive safely in the wet. The sessions will continue in the rain unless the track becomes unsafe to do so.

    11. If you spin, run off track, or make contact with another car, you must report to the pits prior to continuing the session.

    12. Windows all up or down. Verts (cage or not) must run with top up and properly secured.

    13. Helmets optional for hard-top vehicles, mandatory for soft-tops (driver and passenger). Strongly suggested for all vehicles.


    14. Passing zones, front and back straights and only after being clearly signaled by the vehicle in front.
    No signal = no pass...........no exceptions. No passing anywhere else regardless if the vehicle in front signals you to do so.15. When being passed, lift off the throttle, do not turn it into a drag race to the corner

    16. Flagman controls all actions on the track via flags. As your coming into the last corner, give a quick glance his way.



    Notes.

    ~When coming off the track with hot brakes, do not use your parking brake, leave vehicle in gear. Hot pads can and will stick to your rotors

    ~Should you be black flagged, don't panic. Come in and see the flagman for further instructions.

    ~Should a vehicle crash or otherwise become disabled, do not run onto the track under any circumstances.

    ~If your brake pedal is getting soft, safely come off the track and allow them to cool. Only go back on when / if your brakes feel and work as they should.

    ~If you have, bring a torque wrench to check wheel nuts.

    ~When exiting the track, signal your intentions either with a hand signal or signal light on your vehicle

    ~Do not enter the track unless directed to do so via the flagman

    ~Cars will be divided into two groups. Rookies / Experienced. Flagman will display a flag to indicate which group is out. Please pay attention, do not go out with both groups.

    ~After each session, good idea to take a look under the hood / under your vehicle for any fluid leaks

    ~If your in among a group that is clearly faster than you and it's making you uncomfortable, cycle off the track and head over to the flag man, return to the track once the groups passed.

    ~If your in the experienced group and your finding the pace too fast, you might want to drop down to the rookie group.

    ~While at least some rookies will be tempted to move up to the faster group, first time out should be about hitting your marks, logging laps and getting experience.

    ~Remove all loose items from your vehicle including from console, glove box, floor, above your visor (remote door openers or similar). Same for inside the trunk, don't want any 1/4 panel dents from the inside. Remove or fully secure spare tire and jacking equipment.

    ~No cameras outside your vehicle unless secured to a permanent mount. Inside vehicle must also be either mounted or secured to passengers hand via wrist strap or similar.

    ~At no time should yours or your passengers hands or arms be out the window.

    ~No drones permitted, pitts or race track

    ~Helmets must be worn properly and secured via mfg's strap.

    ~Have a question, lots of experienced peeps there. Don't be shy about walking up and asking someone. Only stupid question is the one you don't ask.

    ~Yes we will be doing a parade lap or two for the rookie class. Track looks totally different from the drivers seat, will help you get your bearings.

    ~Let's all be safe and have fun.

    Many thanks to Joe and everyone at DaSilva Racing for organizing this event.............as per the norm, you guys rock!!

    Good idea to print yourself off a copy of the above.
    Did I miss anything OR any questions?
