[OpenTrack] Track Safety

Open Track Days are without a doubt, an exhilarating and fun-filled time for all, but it doesn’t come without a bit of caution and common sense. Though the open track is structured to run outside the traditional laws found on public road ways, it does not mean that safety is thrown out the door. In fact, safety should be of the highest concern when partaking in any given event. Please drive responsibly and take into consideration others on the course may not be of your driving caliber and may not always be able to maneuver as effortlessly as you.

Required Safety Equipment-

  • Helmet*
  • Seatbelt**
  • Shoes – Closed toe shoes
  • Pants – Long pants recommended
  • Shirt – Comfortable

Above wearing the approved safety attire, please secure any parts within the car. Do not allow for items to shift during operation. Also, a clean car not only looks great speeding down the track, but is a safe way of ensuring unneeded grim, dirt, oil, etc. from entering the premises. Any considerable amount of debris on the track is dangerous and will result in a temporary closure to remove said hazard.

With some patience, some practice, and lots of common sense, open track days can be both an exciting and safe event. Please follow all these rules.


*Helmet- Snell approved
**Seatbelt- DOT approved 3-point or 5 point SFI. 4 point not allowed
