Yes, helmets are required. The track has helmets available.

Depending on how tall you are there are a few ways to fit in with a helmet.

We can always get you some race seats installed with custom brackets to get you lower to the floor!

I'm just shy of 6'7" I'm going to try and see if I can borrow a friends helmet tonight to see if I fit. Not sure race seats are worth it considering I am not a track guy I just wanted to see how I do and see if I can crush some DCTs

Thanks,
David

Well we hope you can make it out. I think there may be at least one DCT for you to destroy

How late are you accepting registrations for the solo group (non race car)? I'd like to attend but need another day or two to sort out my schedule.

We are accepting registrations until early next week so that there is enough time to preform the Track Inspection in our shop. This way if any issues are found they can be corrected in time for the Track Day.

Let us know!
