Event Info Welcome to MazFest 2011, hosted by Speed Ventures, at Auto Club Speedway's Auto Competition Course ("PRO COURSE") and Autocross.
Registration on this page is for MAZDA drivers only.
There will be a GATE FEE of $10 for everyone entering the facility, including drivers, guests, and spectators.
Each road course run group will receive 4 x 25min. sessions (as opposed to our usual 5 sessions). Autocross runs depend on how early you arrive, how late you stay, and how many people sign up. Most drivers report getting 12-40 runs per day.
Auto Club Speedway is located at 9300 Cherry Ave., Fontana, CA 92335. Use the main entrance to the track off Cherry Ave. and, once through the gate, drive to the left side of the Speedway and then curve right to get to the tunnel which takes you into the interior of the track. The autocross is located on the left after you enter through the tunnel. However, you must go to Garage 2 to sign in and get your wristband.
ARRIVAL: For road course drivers, please show up at the track by 6:50am and go straight to Registration in Garage 2 (G2), the second garage, to check in. Please check in BEFORE unloading or working on your car. Check-in will close at 7:40 and the Drivers' Meeting may begin as early as 7:40am (depending on your run group) in the Drivers Lounge (also in G2). The Drivers Meeting is mandatory for all drivers - unless you have received prior clearance from Speed Ventures to show up late.
Autocross drivers can show up whenever you like, although there will be a drivers meeting for those who arrive early between 8:30 and 9:00am. Just come to registration to get your wristband before pitting your car.
DRIVERS with GARAGES: remember that you must pay for a garage in advance and get a garage sticker at registration. Do not take a garage unless you have reserved one and received your sticker at registration.
GASOLINE: 98oct and 110oct fuel can only be pumped into full race vehicles and will not be sold to drivers with streetable cars. Gas jugs must labelled "RACING FUEL for USE IN COMPETITION VEHICLES ONLY". In addition a CARB form must be filled out for each purchase (we will have forms available at the track). Make sure you show up with enough gas to run your first session at least! There will be no gas available until 8:45am. The schedule for gas is 8:45am-900am, 10am, 12noon, 2pm, 4pm. The attendant will only wait for 10 minutes to sell gas. Gas is purchasable only using CASH. Speed Ventures does not guarantee that race fuel will be available. If it is critical to running your car, you might consider bringing your own.
LOADING IN the day before: if you want to unload on Friday night, you must notify us in advance and we will give your name to security. Load-in is between 4pm and 7:30pm on Friday evening.
CAMPING is not allowed inside the Speedway due to the added cost of security. If we get enough people willing to pay for camping, we can possibly add security. Please contact us if you are interested in camping.
LODGING: Speed Ventures has secured a drivers discount at the Sheraton Ontario Airport Hotel. Just tell them you're with Speed Ventures to get the discounted room rate. The hotel is right off the 10 Freeway about 5 exits west of Cherry Avenue (the Speedway exit). Address: 429 North Vineyard Avenue, Ontario, California 91764. Phone: (909) 937-8000. Website: www.sheraton.com/ontario
CAR NUMBERS: You must have car numbers, at least 8" tall, located on both sides and either the front or back of your vehicle. This is mandatory for all drivers.
TOW HOOKS or TOW POINTS are required on the front of your car for the road course (not for Autocross). If you do not have a tow hook on your car, please figure out a tow point we can use to hook on to in order to pull you off track in the event of a mechanical problem. You are responsible for establishing a tow point - Speed Ventures is not responsible for any damage done to your car.
The TECH FORM is a must-have at the event (not required for autocross). Be sure to print it out, fill it out before the event, and bring it with you to registration:
