WHAT TO DO CHECKLIST

BEFORE REGISTERING

Read the Experience Requirements to make sure you sign up for the correct group.

Note: If the run group that matches your experience level is full when you go to register, contact us to be added to the waiting list for that run group. In the interest of everyone’s safety do not just sign up for a group that is beyond your experience level.

Being in the correct run group is not only safer for you and those around you, it is considerate to the other drivers in your group.

Any drivers identified as having intentionally placed themselves in the wrong group will be pulled from the track with no refund.

Read the Technical Requirements section which includes our Rules & Regulations and Tech Form to make certain your car has the necessary safety items including an approved roll bar.

You will need to complete a full safety inspection of your car prior to the event, as well as print, complete and sign your Tech Form/Waiver to bring when you check in.

Have all your required information ready, including:
  • Emergency contact info: name, relationship, telephone number

  • Your car number (number to be displayed on your car to identify you — see Miata Reunion Rules and Regulations for specifications.)

  • Verifiable number of track days completed in the past two years. (“Verifiable” means you can provide the track-day organization you ran with, the date and the track. Autocross and parade laps do NOT count as track days).

  • Have all your info gathered and ready. We’ve provided a sample registration form link below so you can see exactly what it looks like, and make sure you’re ready. It will take you through all the fields, and when you fill it out correctly you will receive a confirmation email. This is only a SAMPLE form for you to practice and is not actual registration. Payment will be accepted by credit card during actual live registration starting May 27th.

AFTER REGISTERING

We strongly encourage you to book your hotel room ASAP. Tent and RV camping are also available at the track.   Event Hotel and Camping info here.
Are you caravanning with a group? There will be groups who want to caravan together forming from all over North America, including from Canada.  There are also a large number of local area Miata Clubs and enthusiast groups you can connect and network with (see Supporting Clubs & Enthusiast Groups links on the Home Page.)
Check out our Facebook, Instagram and Miata.net to find new friends.
If at all possible, we strongly encourage new drivers  to get some seat time at Sonoma Raceway with TrackMasters Racing at one of their many events there prior to the Reunion so you can learn the track.  We’ve worked with TrackMasters for over a decade and they will be managing the HPDE portion of the event for us.
Make sure you know the rules and regulations, and know your flags. Review Miata Reunion Rules and Regulations ahead of the event to learn your flags in advance so you can focus on driving your car and learning the track line.

AT THE EVENT

We STRONGLY RECOMMEND getting checked in at the Miata Reunion Early Check-in at Event Central at the track on Friday, 20 October, from 3pm to 7:30pm. That way you’ll be ready to go bright and early Saturday morning. Your Miata Reunion event wristband means no waiting at the gate on Saturday morning to sign waivers, and you’ll be able to focus on prepping your car and attending the MANDATORY 7:30am drivers meeting.

Event Central will be open in the Media Center building all day Saturday and Sunday (see Event Schedule for specific hours.) 

There is a MANDATORY “ALL DRIVERS” meeting on both Saturday and Sunday mornings at 7:30am. E Group drivers have mandatory classroom sessions immediately following the drivers meeting, and after each E Group track session. (See Track Schedule below.) 

During the weekend follow the Main Event Schedule and Miata Reunion Track Schedule and you can’t go wrong.

For everyone’s safety we require a full safety inspection of your car prior to the event. Bring your completed and signed Tech Form/Waiver to check-in at Event Central.

HPDE Track Day FAQS

Please see our Driver Experience Requirements for detailed group descriptions and experience requirements. As courtesy to other drivers and for everyone’s safety do not sign up for a faster run group than you are qualified for. This is unsafe and may result in you being removed from the track.

All groups will likely sell out quickly as in previous years, making it difficult or impossible to move anyone from group to group at the event.  However there may be some special situations:
Prior to the event: You can find another driver to change spots with, as long as that driver is qualified for your run group.  Contact us at [email protected] to make the necessary changes in the system. 
At the event: Please see the team at Event Central to make this official for everyone’s safety. Don’t just show up in the wrong group. Due to the high level of activity at the event, we may not be able to make changes to run groups in time for the next session.

It is your responsibility to accurately assess your experience level before registration opens. If it becomes apparent on track that you signed up for a group that is beyond your experience level, the event organizers reserve the right pull you from the group due to safety concerns. As it is highly unlikely there will be room in a different group you will not be eligible for a refund.

 

Please see our Cancellation Policy with cutoff dates in red above.

Yes. You are welcome to transfer your registration to someone else. To make it official you’ll need to contact us to make the change in our system. It is your responsibility to ensure the new driver has the required experience to take your spot. If this change ends up presenting a safety issue (for example a novice driver taking a group B spot), we reserve the right to deny track access.

Please see the Required Rollover Protection section in Miata Reunion Rules and Regulations. Contact us directly if you have any questions.

Yes. For track sessions, all passengers must wear an approved helmet, with the car equipped with appropriate safety restraints. Factory seat belts are OK, but ideally real track restraint systems. Minimum age for ride-alongs is 16.

For Parade Laps, no helmets are required, however passengers must wear seat belts.  Safety is paramount, so the same rules apply as for driving on the street or highway.

YES!  We welcome the Miata’s Italian cousin to join us on track.

Yes. Miata-based kit cars and engine swaps are welcome as they depend on the use of parts that actually came from a Miata. 

Yes. Per our Miata Reunion Rules and Regulations, for your safety we require at a minimum closed toed shoes and long pants, with common-sense coverage “on top” (no tank tops or crop tops). Drivers in faster groups (A, B) are encouraged to wear approved fireproof race suits.
