Tips for Gateway July 22nd-24th

Gateway July 22-24: Tips for the Weekend

Friday:
Gateway is asking that we do not show up too early, our contract starts at 1pm. You can park outside the gate by the main entrance until 1.

When the gate opens at 1pm it will be open for the rest of the weekend. Once “normal” gate hours are over (7pm-ish), no trailers can leave the facility without title/proof of ownership or accompanied by the race director.

When pulling onto the facility Friday make a left and go past Security booth and drive into infield and sign waiver. Please do not set up your pits until all set up work is complete on the track. If you set up your pits before work is done, you will be publicly criticized all weekend over the P/A and social media and Mike Magee will be assigned to help you in your pits for the duration of your stay.

Air fence set up will start at 1pm and straw bales will start about 4pm. We will be pulling a name to give away one track day to a lucky club member for helping out. We’ll have a cooler of water.

Registration and tech will be open from 5-8pm for your convenience.

Saturday:
If you were able to register and tech on Friday, you will be able to casually make your way to the 8:00am riders meeting held in the Drivers Meeting Room. Otherwise registration and tech will open at 7am. All participants must attend the 8am riders meeting.

Race Clinic:
We will meet in Drivers Meeting Room after the 8am riders meeting.

Racers:
We will have a mandatory racer meeting during the lunch hour for all racers. If this is your first time racing with us please view our rulebook:

Camping:
Camping is allowed at the track, but we are not allowed to put poles in the ground. Gateway does not have RV hookups, so plan on using your generator if you’re bringing a camper or RV. You are not allowed to set up a tent and sleep on the ground.

Pot Luck Dinner:
Saturday after last bike in, we’ll be having a pot luck dinner and everyone is welcome. We’ll have some burgers, dogs and drinks along with whatever else shows up.

Looking forward to a blazing hot good time with all of you!
