Anyone want to clue us in on what to expect, and what should be done ahead of time?

 

Things to do:

Comp Application

Recharge Fire Extinguisher (expired)

Physical... cough!

What to expect is simple: don't be involved with anything metal to metal, don't put four wheels off, make sure you pass a couple people, take the drills seriously, watch out for random emergency flags, and make sure your car is 100% in compliance with the CCR. The on-track instructors will do their best to mess with you (late braking, riding your bumper, etc), keep your cool, run cleanly, and when they pass, do your best to keep up.

 

The day is great, the instructors are top notch, and the event is well run. You will be fairly tired by the end and you won't have much (if any) time to work on your car during the day (so make sure it is ready to go the night before). Oh and eat breakfast.

NASA-MA supercomp school is a blast, probably the most fun day you'll ever have on track.

 

Have someone else deal with your car if possible, even if it's just "add fuel, check oil, torque lug nuts, check tire pressures, clean windshield." You'll be back and forth between the classroom and on-track stuff pretty much all day.

 

Yes, there is usually a written test based on anything and everything in the CCR that pertains to racing.

 

Also, make sure you can get out of your car in 10sec (in full gear, with window net up, etc.)

Correct, no need for a passenger seat in comp school (it's the instructor clinic that you would need one for.)

 

And yes, Thursday PM would be the preferred time to get a logbook issued.

Do I need to schedule the car for tech and issue of logbook at the track?
