Lights: This is a night race on an unlit track. Each team must provide its own illumination. While good-quality, properly aimed OE headlight systems are generally up to this task, aftermarket driving and/or foglights are also legal. DON'T OVERTHINK IT: A small number of high-quality, properly mounted, correctly aimed headlights or driving lights is much more effective than a large number of crappy add-ons, or overpowered projector lights, or fancy-pants spotlights.
• During daylight hours, forward lights may be removed if desired.
• Lights, mounts, and associated switches and wires are considered safety items and do NOT count toward the $500 build total.
• From dusk to dawn, all cars must have at least two working headlights, one working taillight, and one working brake light. Multi-filament combination tail/brake lights are acceptable.
• The center of all lights must be no higher than 6 inches above the car's hoodline; roof-mounted lights are not allowed..
• There is no limit on the total number of lights. However, lights must not be unduly dazzling or distracting to others.
• All lights must be properly aimed. Cars with mis-aimed lights may be black-flagged at any time. For good aiming advice, check out this site:
• Teams whose lights are deemed overly dazzling, insufficiently bright, badly aimed, or problematic in any other way may be black-flagged at any time.
• All lights must be present and working during tech inspection.
Side and Rear Glass: no restrictions
Noise Limit: 92dB @ 50 feet
PITS & PADDOCK
Overnight Camping: Camping in Paddock OK. Since you've got to be at the damn track all night anyway, there's no charge for camping at this one. Note: PBIR has an event on Wednesday night and LeMons competitors will not have access to the track until Thursday morning.
Vehicle Restrictions: Vehicles (including ATVs, motorized barstools and the like) must be operated by a street-licensed driver.
Pit Assignments: First come, first serve. The paved paddock is limited. PBIR has informed us you should be prepared to have one support vehicle and trailer with your car in the paddock. Extra motorhomes and vehicles will be positioned north of the tent.
Barbecues NOT Allowed: PBIR doesn't allow grills in the paddock, however the concession stand will be grilling and will be open during the entire race.
Running Water: There is water on site for hand washing / filling radiators -but don't drink it.
Bathrooms: Permanent bathrooms are scheduled for construction this summer, so barring disaster they'll be in place. If not, port-o-fun times for everyone.
Electrical Hookups: There are a limited number of electrical hookups at $55 per day. Call Arlene Lourie at 561.622.1400 to reserve.
Pit Hours: Just be polite to the neighbors.
Fuel Sold On-Site: There will be a VP fuels truck on site.
Dead Cars: Be prepared to bring them home, PBIR wants nothing to do with them.
