Does anyone, at all, know what's going on? The reg page on MSR says to watch this forum for information.

We're less than 2 weeks from the event, reg closes in 8 days, and we have zero feedback. I would really like to register but can't until we have the basic details.

I suppose we could guess based on last year's event information (which was posted a month before that event ) but it would be nice to hear the official word on it.

Thompson 2022
April 23 – TEST DAY


Attention race-car enthusiasts!

Our first event of the year will be at Thompson Motorsport Park on April 23, 2022. We can expect all of the usual.

GARAGES

 Rented through MSR.
 The first four garage spots are reserved for COM staff. Tech may run through one of those bays, keep an ear out for any announcements.

TRACK ACCESS

 Entry on Friday evening is until 7:00PM. You will probably need to sign in at the gate.
 Late entry not allowed, send me a message if this is a problem.

 You should be able to enter at any time (surely any time after 6:00 AM). Garages will be open at 6:00 AM. Check your entry email for registration and tech times.

 Sound must be limited to less than 103 db. If you are black flagged for sound, you get one chance to fix it. No refunds for failing sound. No race engines may be started before 8AM.

 No smoking in the garages or hot pits. No fueling in the garage. - No electric cords across vehicle pathways. There are a bunch of other common-sense rules written into our contract that I’m not going to repeat here. Use your head please.

 The food trailer will be open 8:00AM. The clubhouse will be open 10am – 9pm. The Ice Cream Shack might be open on Friday and Saturday. If you plan to go after the track closes, please go around to the other parking location so they can close and lock the main gate

 Gas is available 24/7, credit card/debit card only. Please do not block access to the gas pumps as others may be waiting.

 Guests and family may attend but unattended children (under age 16) are not allowed as it is a fast-paced event and movement around the paddock can be a safety hazard. Members are responsible for the actions of their crew and guests.


 Travel around the garages is counter clock wise, keep the garages on the left and the speed down.

 An ATM is available in the Pro Shop. The Pro shop will probably be open.

 Your RFID timing cards should be on the PASSENGER side of your car.

 Showers are available in the old oval buildings. Ask for directions when at the track.

Here’s what’s not allowed:
a. Firearms and fireworks of any kind.
b. Pets not on a leash
c. Dumping of fluids- bring it in, take it out with you
d. Any destruction of the pavement – mark with chalk only
e. Radio controlled drones or any device that intentionally leaves the ground
f. Riding unregistered cart/4 wheelers/bikes outside the track area
g. Bedding of brakes on any of the roads outside of the actual racing surface
h. Alcohol consumption while the track is hot
i. Any drugs any time


If there are any questions, post them here and we will try to give timely responses.

Keep an eye on the app for updates throughout the event....turn your notifications on.

See you there!

Anyone know if Thompson has a waste oil dump, and if it will be open?
