All participants should have gotten an email copy.... if not, here it it.


NASA HPR Participant,

Thank you for registering for the April event at HPR. We know you are as excited as we are to be
able to use this new facility.
Since this is a new facility, please bear in mind it is just that. The primary focus on HPR was
getting asphalt down and for Colorado racers to have something to drive on. It痴 missing a few
amenities, but nothing that will keep us from having a great time. Also, due to the newness of the
facility and a few items still in the air, please bear with us if we run into any slight snags during
the weekend.
We will be trying an initial layout for the paddock check page 6 of this document for a map. This
is just a suggestion of where you park so you can be with your fellow competitors.
Tip Of The Weekend Print the attached schedule and have it with you. There may not be a
working PA system so don稚 rely on any announcements. Show up to grid and your meetings on
time according to this schedule and you will never be late!!!!!
There is an entry list posted online double check your class and car number to see if it is
correct. http://www.nasarockymountain.com/nasa_forums/showthread.php?t=2775
It is important that you check the NASA Rocky Mountain forums for all of the latest information
including schedules, maps, etc. We want to make sure you have a great weekend so please read
through all of the information on the following pages!
We値l see you this weekend And thank you once again for supporting us!!!!

Important Track Information
The speed limit within the paddock is 5 mph. Pit lane speed limit is 35mph.
Children under 14 and pets must be supervised at all times.
Do not leave any hazardous materials (used fluids, tires, batteries, etc) at the facility.
In the interest of safety, only licensed drivers may operate wheeled vehicles anywhere within the
facility. This includes bikes, scooters, ATV, skateboards, etc. Any vehicles being used in conflict with this
policy will be confiscated by NASA for the remainder of the weekend.
If you are parked on an asphalt surface, place boards under jacks, trailer legs and canopies to prevent
damage. If you spill fluids get them cleaned up quickly (water on gas spills, kitty litter on oil/etc) and report
the spill to a NASA official if you need help. Any damage done to the paddock facility by a participant will be
the responsibility of that participant.
For those just chomping at the bit to get on the track for some early practice have two options. Judy Faass will be
holding a school on Thursday. You can get more info by contacting Judy at: 719-761-1372. HPR will be holding open
lapping on Friday. You can sign up for open lapping at: www.highplainsraceway.com
Wrist Bands
Everyone entering the HPR property must stop at the front gate and sign the waiver. You値l receive a general
admission wristband (no charge for entry for NASA participants and guests) wear it at all times. Passengers must
get a wrist band from Driver Info.

means that if you miss the meeting, you will need to go to the Chief Instructor and grovel for your wrist

be made directly with HPR. The fee is $35 for one day and $60 for the entire weekend.
