RUNOFFS PADDOCK PARKING INFORMATION (IMPORTANT, PLEASE READ CAREFULLY!) For past SCCA Runoffs, Mazda purchased and reserved paddock parking for Mazda Team Support Members. This year, each entry for the 2014 Runoffs includes a 30-foot long by 25-foot wide paddock space. Larger spaces are available for participants with trailers longer than 30 feet in length for an additional cost. Unlike in the past, where specific spaces were reserved in the paddock, participants will be assigned to a paddock area based on their space needs and then parked as they stage to enter the facility. This will both ensure easy access to spaces and utilize every possible piece of real estate in the paddock. Space is limited, and the main paddock areas will be assigned by entry date.
MAZDASPEED Motorsports Development strongly recommends that you sign up for the SCCA Runoffs as soon as possible. If you register early enough to obtain parking in the main paddock, spaces will be then be assigned to competitors on a first-come, first-served basis as you enter the main paddock.
MAZDA PADDOCK AREA PARKING
Mazda has arranged for parking areas within the main paddock exclusively for Mazda Team Support Members competing in the event. The Mazda paddock parking area is located in close proximity to the Mazda Tent. These spaces will be available to Mazda Team Support Members that have received main paddock confirmations from SCCA. If you wish to paddock in the Mazda area, you will need to notify the parking staff as you enter the paddock. Additionally, if you wish to paddock with friends, you will need to enter the paddock together as there are no reserved spaces.
- Mazda paddock parking area is on a first-come, first-served basis as you enter the paddock; we cannot reserve paddock parking at the track or in advance of the event.
- Standard Mazda paddock area spaces are 25’ x 30’ and are included with your SCCA Runoffs entry fee. See map for Mazda Paddock parking areas.
- Larger Mazda paddock area spaces are available (up to 25’ x 70’) ONLY if you paid the extra fees at time of Runoffs registration with SCCA. See map for Mazda Paddock parking areas.
- Non-Mazda race vehicles will not be allowed in the Mazda Paddock parking area.
- If you wish to paddock with friends you will need to enter the paddock together.
- Once the Mazda paddock areas are full, you will be assigned a space outside of the Mazda paddock area.
MAZDA PADDOCK TENT
The Mazda tent is a covered tent structure, 180’ x 40’ (with sides). Lighting and electrical outlets are available for your use. Space is limited in the tent and will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. We plan to allocate spaces to GT, Production, Sports Racer and Formula Car racers as a priority. Please Return your Confirmation Form ASAP!
