to watch ccs races you will have to pay to get in. For events like Nesba (track days) its free to get in and you will be in the pit areas hanging out with your friends. come on down on the 17th!!!

Rob is correct. A two-day spectator pass to the CCS races is $25 - if you only come on Sunday, however, it's $15.

With track day clubs there is no admission... cuz it's not racing.

You should be able to get $10 back if you leave by a certain time. 4 or 5pm. Not completely sure.

YOu have to thank those people a few years ago who paid for a one day pass on sat and stayed the weekend for the new set-up.

I'm not crazy, my mother had me tested.

Arrive at the CCS races at 6:30 am, sign up for corner work, and then you get to watch with a front row seat, for free! After the first day, you will get a bit of pay for corner working. They feed you too! There is a great group of people who will show you the ropes.

Anyone can do it, as long as you're over 18. I will try and make it for corner work at least one day, not for the money, but because it's fun!

Plus those gate fees, are what they use to cover the air fence so at least your money is going for a good cause.
