2011 NICOFEST Carlisle, PA:Official Registration Information

Postby EZcheese15 » Tue Jan 04, 2011 6:47 pm

Welcome to the 2011 NICOfest autocross/drift registration thread at the Carlisle Performance and Style Show! May 14-15 (Sat-Sun) at the Carlisle Fairgrounds.

If you're interested in auto-crossing your own car on a wickedly fun autocross course, or displaying your drifting skills without any fear of getting arrested, this is the place to sign up.

We're talking unlimited runs over two days, drift, auto-cross or both. Any make car is welcome. No track experience necessary, opened to all licensed drivers 18 or older. There are no special modifications required for most cars, no special skills required from you. For a small one-time $10 flat fee, (over and above the Performance and Style admission,) you can join us in the private fenced-in NICO paddock beside the track, test your skills with your car, or get an extra close view of the action. Non driving guests are welcome but they will be subject to the same fee.

For those of you who are new to this event, Cars at Carlisle is nationally recognized for their excellent car shows. Five years ago, we brought NICOFEST to the Carlisle Performance & Style show, and the nice folks at Carlisle allowed us unlimited use of their track for NICO members. Needless to say, it was a huge success. But rather than us being the only ones having all of the fun on the track, you are cordially invited to join us with your own car to test your skills and have fun. We're now on our 5th year, and this year will be the biggest yet . The plan is to once again alternate between drifting and autocross throughout the two days. This translates to literally hours of track time for both autocrossing and drifting.

The link below is a recap of last year’s event. This should give you a taste for what it’s about.

http://www.nicoclub.com/archives/nicofe ... -2010.html

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT!

2010 Formula D Champion, Vaughn Gitten Jr., will be at the even on Saturday, May 14th for 2 drifting demonstrations. He will also be signing autographs all day. Don't miss out on meeting the 2010 Formula D Champion!




SIGNING UP

Registration will be slightly different this year, but still very easy. For both NICO members and non-NICO members, please visit the registration link below. You will be prompted to Paypal $10 to NICOclub with Carlisle Registration as the subject matter. Please register separately for each guest. If the name on your Paypal account is different than yours, please indicate so in the comments field on the Paypal transaction. Only names registered through Paypal (or indicated as different in the comments) will be considered registered. No exceptions. If you do not have a Paypal account, major credit cards are excepted via the Paypal website as well. To verify your registration, click the button below. Please note your registration does not update live and may take up to a day after you submit payment for it to reflect on the registration list.
The registration link will require your real first/last name, not NICO handle. Posting on this site will not be enough to register this year. Sorry.

The Paypal link for the $10 fee will be for track registration only. It is completely separate from the Performance and Style general registration. This link is also safe. As in the past, there are no obligations, no extra fees, no hidden charges, no junk mail, no spam. You do not need to own a Nissan or Infiniti to participate. We welcome any make/model car to join the fun. Guests are welcome, but will be subject to the same one-time $10 fee.

Please use this thread for any questions or comments. It will be closely monitored by NICO staff, and we’ll answer you as quickly as possible.

"Walk-in" registration without signing up here will also be permitted, but they will be subject a one-time $25 fee. Good for the duration of the event, with all the same privileges.

Remember, registering for the NICOfest auto-cross and drift does not exclude you from enjoying the many other activities that the Carlisle Performance and Style show offers. It’s a huge show full of features and activities over two days.

Here are the general rules/requirements to participate in the NICOfest Carlisle Drift/Autro-cross event:

Motorcycle helmets are also acceptable, but they must have a Snell rating of M2000 or newer. We will also accept helmets with a BSI safety rating of 6658 Type A.

If there is no valid Snell or BSI sticker, that helmet cannot be used. No exceptions. Bicycle helmets are also not acceptable. It is okay to share helmets, but please be forewarned, no one will be permitted on that track without wearing an approved helmet. Please advise during tech/registration if he or she is sharing helmets. If people are sharing helmets, the helmet only needs to be tech'ed once.

- All Participants are asked to volunteer to help operate the event, like corner working, registration, or tech. The cars can only run if the corners are staffed.

- And most importantly, Have fun.

CAR "TECH" REQUIREMENTS

Here is what will be required to pass the technical inspection. Essentially if your car can pass a state inspection, it should pass tech. Please be sure to check your over carefully before coming. It would be a shame not to be able to run because of something small.

Engine compartment: no leaks, fluids okay, belts tight, throttle free, no cheap tape on hoses.

Brakes: fluid clean, full

Brake lights/signals: operational

Battery: mounted securely

Wipers: functional

Tires: Autocross: no cuts, no cord showing, no dry rot. R-compounds or slicks are permitted
Drift: no tire requirements.

Wheels: no missing lugnuts. Torque will be checked during tech.

Interior: all loose items removed, glove box empty, floor mats removed

Restraints – factory seat belts are acceptable.

Fire Extinguisher – optional, but if present must be securely mounted

Trunk : emptied, and secured

Helmet: SA2000/M2000 ratings or newer. No cracks. DOT/SAE (only) rated helmets are not acceptable

Gas cap : present and secured.

VOLUNTEERS

We’ll need volunteers to make it happen.Volunteers are naturally welcome to drive. But with the track open for so many hours, we’ll need everyone to volunteer some time. Here are the areas where we are asking for volunteer help:

Tech inspector: working a simple checklist, don’t need to be a mechanic.

Registration: checking in attendees, signing waivers, assigning car numbers, issuing wristbands.

Corner workers: for safety, picking up cones, reporting knocked over cones, watching for debris, spin outs, fluids, etc.

Starter: In charge of safety, launches drivers. Coordinates with corner workers.

OTHER DETAILS

You will go through tech prior to registration. Tech is located at the NICOfest tent just outside the entrance to the paddock. Once you,your car, and your helmet pass tech, you then register at the same tent, where you will sign waivers and be issued a wrist band and a number for your car. The number is to be taped to the inside of the driver side rear window. Please wear the wrist band for the duration of the event (All weekend).

If your car already has a number, we will let you use it, but please let us know that number when you register, so we don't give it out to someone else.

You only need to register once for the duration of the event.

The Carlisle main gates will open at 0800 both days. The official address is as follows:

Carlisle Fairgrounds1000 Bryn Mawr RoadCarlisle PA 17013-1588

Carlisle is just west of Harrisburg PA. convenient to the PA turnpike and I-81.

The track is located on the north side of the property, and can be seen from the PA turnpike. Once you come through the gate into the fairgrounds, and pass the buildings, you will turn left and head for the big tent.

The track itself an out-and-back asphalt course with a grass infield. There are some on and off camber turns that make this course much more interesting than a normal parking lot auto-cross setup. It is a second gear course. You should find it easy to navigate, but challenging to get through fast. There will also be a lot of spectators which adds to the excitement. Both the track and paddock are fenced in.

We will publish the auto-cross/drift schedules as soon as they get finalized. The drifting will be featured by the show so expect plenty of spectators.

To register for the Performance and style show itself, please refer to Carlisle's Registration page here: http://store.carlisleevents.com/SearchR ... asp?Cat=22 and make sure to choose "NICO" as your club affiliation. This will get you credentials to get into the show. Once you are inside, if you are registered for the track event, simply come on down to the paddock and check in. There is also plenty of parking if you choose not to run on the track.

Some other tips.

You are on your own for overnight accommodations. There will be no camping at the fairgrounds. We will announce where most of the staff will be staying, but you under no obligation to stay there. There are many places to stay in the Carlisle area in all price ranges.

If you are after maximum runs, we recommend getting tech’ed/registered on Friday afternoon, and arriving at the Fairgrounds early on Saturday so you can get on track immediately. Tech lines can get long on Saturday morning. The lines to get on track traditionally have been smallest early on Saturday morning, and Sunday afternoon until closing. The drift/auto-cross schedule runs tight, so if you’re planning to run, you might want to give yourself time to get prepped before the session begins.

That's it for now, please stay tuned in case of any changes or announcements.

Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask here. We hope you will join us at the Carlisle Performance and Style show for some extra special fun with your car.

Any questions can be addressed here and either Joel (Bubba1), the eventmaster, or any other staff member and we will do our best to answer your questions as quickly as possible.

Thank you,

Torry

NOTE**** idgaf how far you drove with missing lug nuts or if you dodged farm machinery in the road with a bungy cord wrapped around your battery holding it down, make sure everything is secure on your car and not half-assed, it saves a lot of time checking all of these cars

We'll have 2 tents. One inside the pit fence and one outside. By registering for the P&S show, you'll have general access to the fairgrounds and are more than welcome to hang out at the NICO tent that is outside the pits (our registration tent).

If you want to get into the pits and hang out in the pit tent, it is $10 per person (good for the entire weekend)--regardless if you bring in a car or not.

Thank you, Evotyler & Heavy. We really appreciate your help. :bigthumb: Tech will be the same as last year. The only thing that might come in handy is an extra torque wrench if you remember it. We'll have have pens, clipboards and the other stuff.

Once I get the main entrance registration sorted out, I will also register for this (even though I don't have a car there)

EDIT: Also, put me down for Tech inspector, registration, corner worker, and starter duties, as required. I'll help out with whatever is needed.

so just to be clear, I pay the $10 to Nico via paypal and then the other amount for the 2011 Carlisle Performance & Style Race Paddock. Is that all I need? I dont plan to show my car, I do want to hit the track as well as see the cars that are being shown. sorry for being difficult.

To clarify, the $10 paypal is strictly for the track use. It is separate from the admission to the Performance and Style show. The P&S admission is also where you decide whether you want to pay the extra to show your car(called getting judged by P&S) . If you don't want to "show" your car but still want to drive it into the fairgrounds, you purchase a "non-judged" admission.

Hope that helps.

That's correct. It looks like Carlisle has set up a Race Paddock and non-judged entry this year, both for $40. I believe those are pretty much the same thing. So $40 to get into the fairgrounds with your car (paid to Carlisle), and $10 (paid to NICO) to get into the pit/track area.

I also have everything set up again for Nico Members at the Holiday Inn in Mechanicsburg. This is where the night time party is.. lol Ask a member who stayed here before, it's crazy. Just tell them you're with NICO and you'll get a discounted room rate.

The Holiday Inn has now changed names to the PARK INN!!!!!!!

Does the discounted Nico rate require full payment up front? They usually have a lower rate at that hotel if you prepay, that's why I'm wondering. What is the rate?

I'm will have the final rate from her tomorrow morning.. I don't think you have to pay up front. She's been pretty good to us the last few years... I'll let you know for sure in the morning..

Torry - I canceled my contract with the hotel because LBC already has so many rooms. If we need more, it's cheaper to add on to his contract than open a new one, so we'll have to ask him what the rate is. Although they shouldn't have to be paid for until you arrive. Atleast that's how my contract was.

LBC - My parents only live 3 miles from the hotel. I'll just crash there.. lol But you still owe me my damn NICO t-shirt!! lol

Keep in mind, Brian's rooms are nearly all taken already. In fact, I just emailed him that I'm taking one, so he's up to 14/17 claimed.

Also, his rooms are the Lodge rooms that are a much cheaper rate than the standard rooms at the hotel. I think the standard rooms were about $110/night if prepaid, but like $130 if you don't prepay. Not sure how your rate compared.

I have been texting LBC about the rates he has received. Maybe it's because they are NOT the Holiday Inn anymore, but we are not getting any real type of discount on rooms this year like we have received in the past. The lodge is always the best way to go, but after that I'm not sure.. :wtf2:

Lodge rooms are all booked.

Managing payment and etc for 17 rooms (and 17 different niconauts) is going to be enough for me to handle... but I wont leave any niconaut out to pasture!

If you guys want std rooms at $110 a piece you can email/pm me and I will help you secure them, but the highly sought after Lodge Rooms are full.
