CAMPING & CREW
Camping is included with all Time Attack registration. You will have space in the primary paddock to set up camp. There is no charge for RV’s or pull behind campers for drivers. The paddock for this years festival will be restricted to drivers and crew only. If you have Crew & Friends with GA tickets that you intend to have paddock with you they must arrive with you as well. We will not be allowing any GA ticket holders into the main paddock area without driver or team approval. All Crew and Friends must have either a crew pass / GA ticket and a camping pass if they are staying overnight.
Paddock space at this years event is going to be extremely tight. We will be doing all we can to allocate appropriate space for everyone throughout the weekend but please keep it tight in the paddock. Double up with friends if possible and help make space if needed. We have expanded the paddock, built new concrete slabs and put in new grass paddock space on the west side of the facility to accommodate all the drivers attending this year.

As much as we would like everyone to be able to access power there just simply isn’t enough power boxes for all drivers. Pre Distribution of these boxes has proved very difficult in previous years so we will be distributing power at the gate on a first come first served basis. You will be paying Gingerman Direct at the gate. Please double up and share power boxes if applicable. Generators will be allowed in the paddock for those that wish to power their own spaces.
All Time Attack Drivers must go through registration at Time Attack HQ located South of the Timing Tower. Here you will receive your transponder if needed. Claim your final Run Group and pick up your banners, Door Cards, Numbers and Contingency Decals.
We have a number of contingencies available for all competitors this season, From Powerstop / Maxxis / SpeedFreaks / Koyorad / Quicktrick & More. All contingency details and required decals will be available at registration. For a list of contingencies check the contingency roundup page located here. We will be adding additional contingencies all the way up to the week of the event.

CLASSES / AUDIT
TrackBattle classes are self selected and based off a Scouts Honor system. We trust that all vehicles will be built according to the rules of their Class in a fair and friendly mannor. All vehicles may be subject to a build audit at any time during the competition. The top 5 finishers at the end of the competition may be required to go through a build audit on Sunday before awards are distributed. Build audits may be requested of another competitor suspected of bending the rules. But please this is fun so lets keep it fun.

TrackBattle will take place on all three days of #GRIDLIFE Midwest. Friday - Sunday.
Each driver will have 3 sessions per day at roughly 15 minutes each to lay down their best laps. Times from all sessions can be counted towards competition.
The TrackBattle field will be re gridded after each session on Friday based off of lap times. Be sure to check in at TrackBattle HQ for posted times, run groups and grid order after each session.
Each TrackBattle group will have roughly 22 cars on track and will be sent onto track as a pack. It is the responsibility of the group to make sure that their is adequate space between you and the car in front of you so that you are able to get clean laps. There is no warm up lap, after going out onto track your first time across start finish will be the beginning of the heat. In the event of an off we will be doing hot pulls whenever possible to keep the track hot for the duration of the Time Attack session. Flags and on track etiquette will be covered in the Time Attack meeting each day.
The awards ceremony will take place following Final Grid at the end of the event on Sunday. Please plan to stay through the ceremony to celebrate your friends and competitors.
