General: All drivers must be 18 years of age or older and have a current California (or equivalent) drivers license. Some licensed drivers under 18 years of age may participate under certain circumstances. Contact the Director of Instruction for details.
Novice: There are no additional requirements. This group normally includes drivers with less than 10 track days experience.
Intermediate: The driver must either have a Time Trial License or have an application for a Time Trial license on file with us at the time of the event. If you don't have an application on file, you can take care of it at the track. This group normally includes drivers with 10 to 20 track days of experience.
Advanced: The driver must either have a Time Trial License or provide us with a description of applicable experience driving in this kind of environment. Contract the Time Trial Director if you have any questions. This group normally includes drivers with more than 20 track days experience.
Racing: To race, the driver must have an AROSC Race License or a Race License with some other recognized racing organization (POC, PCA, BMWCCA, SCCA, etc.). If there is a question, contact the Race Director.
AROSC HPD is highly dedicated to safety. High speed driving on a race track presents inherent dangers. To ignore them is unacceptable. We don't want you, your car or any one else to be unduly endangered. Consequently we have a variety of safety requirements which must be satisfied prior to going on track. These requirements differ for Novice, Intermediate, Advanced and Race Run Groups. There are specifications for both personal and vehicle safety equipment.
There is also a tech/safety inspection which must be preformed by a qualified individual who is familiar with the make and model of car being inspected and with safety equipment. If you are qualified, you may complete the Tech Form yourself but we recommend that someone else do it for you. The completed and signed form must be presented when you complete your registration process at the track.
Even if you and your car meet these requirements, there is no guarantee that an accident will not happen. Also, it is your responsibility as a driver to follow the safety requirements and to drive responsibly.
