RACE COST/WAIVERS
$200 per vehicle class entry

Race participants (drivers/co-drivers), must be at least 16 years old. Participants under the age of 18 must fill out (along with their parent/guardian) the part of the waiver (will be emailed upon registration) highlighted in green. Participants over 18 must fill out the part of waiver (will be emailed upon registration) highlighted in yellow. Failure by all participants to fill out the waiver will result in the participant NOT racing.

Please hand in exact race fees (change will NOT be available) in a sealed envelope with your names/race team/vehicle number on the envelope. Along side the envelope, please hand in loose waivers so we can confirm all participants. Fees and waivers can be handed in at the registration booth – see map for location.

If you do NOT hand in waivers and/or money prior to lining up for your race, you will be asked to leave the line up and be moved to the back of the line with your corrected time being assessed from your original start position.

TECH INSPECTION
Please find Bill McGibbon, Marek Smid, JP Morin or Joel Demeyre on the evening of Friday September 24th in the Greasy Clown Motorsports pit or Saturday morning before your race. You must pass tech in order to qualify.

*If you received a Conditional Pass (yellow tag) previously – you will need to fix the outstanding tech issue and receive a green tag in order to participate in this race.

If your conditional pass was due to a missing number plate/shark fin, you WILL be able to race without it but be aware, it is in your best interest in having a shark fin as this is the easiest number plate for lap counters to identify your vehicle – lack of number plate may result in miscount of laps.
