$30 extra for no work, but don't pay me that. That will be worked out between you and some slave worker bee. And only if we can work it out.

What you need to bring.
A helmet is good, but we can provide loaners also. Helmet must be SNELL 1995 or newer per label on it.

Sun screen. Sunglasses. Hat.
Driving shoes?

Car should be "race ready" for technical inspection. Enough air in tires. Check your lug nuts. Make sure your battery is mounted well. Remove loose items from inside the car and from inside the boot. Tape up anything you want to tape. We recommend the blue painters tape for that.

Paypal'd too now I'm officially in the event, question I have a Motorcycle full face DOT helmet, can I use that for the event?
Hopefully it wont rain that day, and If it does is there a contingency plan?

Any way too many questions look forward to participate on the event

The motorcycle helmet should be fine.

Rain means we run in the rain. That is actually fun. We would only cancel for lightning or if it was really really bad. Which does not happen often in SoCal. I predict perfect weather.

Stars are for people that want to pay to not work.

CountD... probably 15 runs? 20? Hard to say. Its all about the math.

Car every 30 seconds means 2 cars per minute or 120 runs per hour. Times 8 hours would be 960 runs, divide up by 60 drivers would be 16. But some drivers will drop out early so harder core people will get more runs.
