Friday Prior to Event: Registration must be completed by no later than the Friday Prior to the event at 11:59PM. There is no on-site registration.

8:00-9:00AM: Registration and Tech Inspection

  • Registration occurs at the table next to the trailer. You will need to check your name off of the list to show you arrived, get your wristband, and sign the waiver.
  • Tech Inspection: Each car that competes must pass a safety inspection. Please have your class and number on the side of the car prior to taking your car through tech. The inspection includes wheel bearing tightness, tire tread (no cord showing), secure battery placement, removal of loose items inside the car, and proper brake/fluid operation. Other items may be checked by the inspection team as well. The number one item not passing tech inspection is a loose battery.

8:45AM: Novice Walk Through

  • At every single event there will be an experienced driver to suggest the best way to navigate through the course. They will offer tips on how to complete the course and suggest paths that might provide quicker times. The walk through instructors are there to help the new drivers to the sport and will gladly answer questions you may have. To attend the novice walk through listen for any announcements and meet at the starting line at 8:45AM.

Please note the run work order and the number of runs is announced at the drivers meeting. It is not posted prior to the event or during registration as the heats are subject to change based on attendance. Regarding the number of runs, we typically offer six timed runs.

The length of the day will vary depending on the number of participants, the conditions of the day, and any potential delays or other variables. However, we encourage competitors to stay after the event is over for the awards and trophies. We offer some form of trophy to the top thirty percent of drivers in each class. Equipe Rapide is also unique in that we offer cash payouts to the top 20 PAX winners at each event as well.

Race results are typically posted on the website within one day of the conclusion of the event.
