With most tracks, you can't just "show up" and drive your car on the track. The track typically needs to be rented or "alotted" for the day (typically to race teams for tuning purposes).

Generally, you need to find a group who is renting out the track for the day(s) and sign up to run with them (unless you are going to pay to rent out the track yourself which looks to be upwards of $3500 per day).

N. PARK WEEKEND ADMISSION
1. $10.00 Park Admission fee per person, kids 8 years & under free, will be collected at park entrance(s) and retained by W.S.I.R. No Exceptions.


ten bucks to get on the property and spectate, paddock access, etc... "go where you want, do what you want" is what the guy at the front gate told us one time. classic!

to drive on the track + $$$.$$

Fees listed show what it costs to rent the track for the day for testing. Willow normally has an open(to any racer holding a license from any sanctioning group) testing day on fridays(call ahead to see if it is for motorcycles or cars). cost is usually $75 for the car, $75 for each driver, and $75 to join the testing club(this is a once a year fee). To go and spectate and watch the other clubs in action will cost you $10 for the weekend.

Keep in mind all the corner workers and emergency personnel they are required to have out there for you.

those fees and all test days do not include safety personel and/or flaggers. these services have to be arrainged by the renter just like a race weekend. The track likely has contact info, but it is not supplied with the track rental. this is why test days can be somewhat dangerous as the tester is responsible for there own medical people and there are no flaggers.
