How many runs can I do per day?
We have a AM session and a PM session. In between the air show takes place. We start our PM session once the air show has completed. Usually we have anywhere between 70-80 cars and can run an average of 3-4 passes per session. Pending any delays during the event may change the amount of runs. We are on a live and active airport.
Due to being in conjunction with an air show we have to follow the same safety guidelines and stay in the say zone due to insurance. Spectators are 600ft from the start line. We do not have a finish line viewing area. Finish line is slightly blocked by a hanger. We are working in providing a safe viewing area at the finish line but as of now we don’t.
Spectator cost and parking?
Spectators and parking is located at a different entrance from where the participants enter. This is controlled by air show/airport security. We have no control over the parking. $10 per person and $5 for parking. Anyone under 3ft tall enters for free. No scooters, golf carts and any motor device allowed onsite. If you are in need of a scooter you can rent one at main gate. These are reserved for the handicap.
