WHAT TO BRING

  • Each participant is required to completely fill out and sign a waiver/self tech form
  • All vehicles attempting to go over 180MPH are required to do 2 solo passes at 180MPH, observed by tech staff, to ensure safety and stability. Only after will they be approved to go 180+mph.
  • All vehicles that run over 190MPH require a mounted fire extinguisher, 4-point roll cage, and fire suit/jacket.
  • We recommend additional safety equipment FOR ALL PARTICIPANTS including but not limited to: Roll bar or full cage, fire suit and clothing/gloves, fire suppression system, hans or similar type of restraint for neck protection, arm restraints or window net

  • All convertibles require roll over protection: either factory or an aftermarket roll bar

Motorcycles:

  • Clothing and Gear
    • Helmets must be full face, rated Snell M2005 or newer, with appropriate stickers. Shell, liner, and strap must be in sound condition. Shatterproof shields required with adequate visibility.
    • Full leather racing suits are required. Leather gloves must be worn with no rips, tears, or openings other than breathing holes. Leather motorcycle boots must be worn and must cover higher than the ankle.

Trophy Competitors:

LICENSING & TECH INSPECTION

CARS EXCEEDING 180+MPH:

It is required that all cars aiming to trap over 180+ go through our own independent tech inspection in addition to filling out your self tech form. This will occur on grid either before your first run or before your second run.

To be licensed to go 180+mph, each driver must do two solo passes (one in each lane) between 170mph and 180 mph. This is to ensure that you can do a safe pass at that speed as observed by our staff. Once we see you have accomplished two safe passes, we will issue you a wristband licensing you to go over 180+mph.

Qualifying for a license on Saturday will be good for both days of the event.
Licenses issued in our records to drivers at any previous Revvolution events will carry over. You do not need to go through licensing again if you already did at the last event, your car will still need to pass tech inspection. At our discretion, we may issue provisional licenses for certain individuals we have seen at past events accomplish these requirements already.

If you exceed 180MPH with a car that has not been through our tech inspection and/or you are not licensed to go over 180MPH, you will be restricted to sub 180MPH. If you continue to go beyond that, you will be removed from the event without refund.

CARS EXCEEDING 180MPH:

  • Cars exceeding 180 still must meet the 180+ licensing and tech requirements set forth above.
  • Additionally, cars exceeding 180 MPH require a mounted fire extinguisher, 4-point roll cage, and fire suit/jacket.
  • Again, we highly suggest additional safety gear such as a HANS Device, full race suit, fire suppression system, and full cage.

ADDITIONAL NOTES

Rain Policy:
