General Information:

 

  • All competitors will receive a total of 6 testing bracelets (one for you and five additional crew members/team members) that will allow access through the gateway during the test weekend. No one will be allowed thought the Gateway who does not have a testing bracelet.  The bracelets will be different colors for each of the two weekends.  The bracelets will be mailed to the competitors 3 weeks prior to the test.  It will be the competitor’s responsibility to distribute the bracelets to the appropriate crew members/team members. Competitors who sign up for both testing weekends will get two sets of six bracelets mailed to them (one set for each weekend).  If there are unique circumstances that require you to have more than five crew members on Pikes Peak for the test, please contact PPIHC directly to pay for additional bracelets.
  • All competitors are bound by the 2015 PPIHC Official rule book.
  • Everyone must sign the participant waiver before they are allowed through the gate (each day).
  • Pikes Peak Highway officials will lock the Gateway at 5:00am. No one will be allowed up after that time.  The start line will be shutdown at 4:50.  No one will be allowed past the start line after that time.
  • It is your responsibility to be in the assigned area prior to the start line in the lower section being closed. No Exceptions!
  • If you designate a bracelet to a member of a media organization/marketing team member who would like to take photos or cover testing from outside of the designated areas, that person must contact PPIHC to be properly identified.
  • Technical inspections will be made for safety requirements only (per the 2015 PPIHC rule book). We will not judge as to the legality of vehicle for the race.
