Bottled Water

We will have coolers of bottled water placed strategically around the paddock throughout the weekend. We encourage you to stay hydrated.


Chalk Talk

A Chalk Talk presented by Dave Scott of Racecoach.net will be held immediately after the Track Walk in the "Press Room" next to COTA Cafe in the Media Center Building. See SCHEDULE for time/date.


Disposal & Recycling

COTA has trash and recycling recepticle bins at various locations in the paddocks and collection facilities for used fluids and waste materials. Participants are required to make use of these for all waste materials. Spills of damage causing fluids such as oils, hydraulic and brake fluid and gasoline etc. may occur. All spills must be treated immediately. Please contact one of our Paddock Marshals immediately in the event of a spill.


Food

All three days of the weekend the "COTA Cafe" will be open from 11:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. serving hot lunches and sandwiches. We will also have the Red Fin food truck serving breakfast and lunch options all three days of the weekend.


Fuel

Fuel at COTA:

  1. COTA plans to sell to Premium 93 Unleaded and 101 unleaded at the fuel pumps between the two Paddocks. Credit or Debit Cards only.
  2. VP Fuel will sell race gas at the same location. VP will have Performance Unleaded, 110 and MS109. If you want a fuel other than one of the two listed, please email Brad at vphq@vpracingfuels.com.

In addition, participants may bring their own fuel in 5 gallon containers (COTA prohibits the refueling of cars inside the garages).

Also, there is a Exxon gas station just to the east of the main entrance to COTA on Highway 81.

VP Fuels' sales of race fuel will be on a cash-only basis. VP Fuels will not accept credit cards. There is an ATM machine on-site at COTA, located in the lobby of the Media Center Building. However, because race fuel sales will be made on a cash-only basis we advise that you plan accordingly.

VP Fuels plans to arrive at COTA on Thursday and will depart Saturday afternoon. No fuel will be available from VP on Sunday.


Garage Information

There will be a limited number of garage spots available for this weekend on a first-come-first-served basis. Note you must both register for a garage AND PAY FOR THE GARAGE AT THE TIME OF REGISTRATION. We will only be renting ¼ garage spots for $375; limit of a maximum of four ¼ garage spots per customer.

Garages are available for rent on the Registration site. They are 20 feet wide x 65 feet long (or 6 meters x 20 meters). Garages are equipped with 120v outlets, 220v, 30 amps, 60Hz, private bathrooms, epoxy floors, compressed air hookup (no hoses), and double automatic lifting garage doors. Garages have space for up to 6 cars.

Tim Strehl (schnellfest@gmail.com) is in charge of garage assignments for this event. Approximately 10 days prior to the event an email will be sent to all drivers who received garages. It will ask for their preferences concerning persons you would like to be garaged with, needs you may have for parking support vehicles, etc. The email message will request a response within 48 hours. Based on those timely responses we will assign drivers to garages in accordance with their preferences to the extent possible. Drivers who do not respond within 48 hours will be assigned to garages randomly. Approximately 5 days before the event a list of garage assignments will be sent to all drivers who rented garages.

Hospitality Suite

We will have one of the large COTA second floor Hospitality Rooms available for use throughout the weekend. This is a comfortable air conditioned/heated space where family members can relax while you are driving. It also is a good spot to watch cars on the main straight heading to Turn 1, and cars coming through the carousel.


Parking

Staging on COTA BLVD starts at 6:30am Thursday (please utilize various lots off of COTA Blvd before then). (Group 1) Big rigs, toter rigs, RVs with trailers, and all designated garage support rigs: line up in the curb-side northbound lane beginning 150' south of the tunnel 2 guard shack. (Group 2) All other tow vehicles with trailers, line up in the 2nd lane from the curb, also northbound. (Group 3) All track cars being driven in line up in the southbound curbside lane starting 150' north of the tunnel 2 guard shack. Load-in will begin at Noon with Group 1, then Group 2, followed by Group 3. Please make your way to the guard shack to sign the COTA waiver and get wristbands (all persons must have wristbands before entering the campus). Please do this BEFORE your group starts load-in. The two center lanes must remain open at all times for thru-traffic. Do not block driveways or fire lanes. We have to "stage" parking at COTA in order to use the Main Paddock space most efficiently. This means that big rigs that need to be close to a particular Formula 1 Garage must be parked first so that they can access their assigned parking spot before the paddock fills up with cars. Don't be upset if a vehicle that arrives after you is allowed to park before you do - it's a function of efficiently filling up the available paddock space!


Parade Laps

At Noon on Saturday and again on Sunday we will do paced parade laps for charity. Folks wishing to participate in the parade laps should go to the grid at Noon. A nominal donation is required which will be shared equally among the sponsoring clubs' charities. No passing is allowed, and speeds will be paced, but you can drive your family car and your family on the racing surface of COTA!


Saturday Evening Awards Dinner

Saturday evening after the track goes cold we will have a complimentary dinner for all participants and volunteers at Moorespeed. Tickets for extra dinners can be purchased from our registration staff.

Vendors

Winding Road will be on-site at the event providing safety gear and supplies.

WindingRoadRacing.com is an Austin, Texas based race gear and race style store. Our goal is to supply "what racers need to go faster." While we sell primarily through our website, race gear can be a daunting purchase for some buyers, especially new racers. We pride ourselves on personal service by providing in store support for local shoppers and live chat/toll-free phone support for all other customers to help ensure they are satisfied with their purchases.

We carry the gear racers need at the track (helmets, race suits, gloves, shoes, action cameras, trailer accessories and much more) as well as lifestyle items (CT Scuderia watches, apparel, books, cameras, etc.). Some manufacturers we carry: MOMO, Alpinestars, OMP, Bell Racing, Stilo and Arai.
