Participate in an Aegis Trackdays event

Participation in an event organized by Aegis Trackdays is at the participant’s own risk.

  • The participant is responsible for his own driving behavior and any consequences thereof.
  • The organisation, the instructor(s), the employees, the circuit manager(s) and/or other participants are not liable for damage to the car, clothing or other belongings of the participant, nor for personal injury that occurred before, during or after participating in an Aegis Trackdays event. Participation is entirely at your own risk.

participant.

Participants in an Aegis Trackdays event must be in possession of a valid driver’s license. Anyone under the age of 18 must possess and be able to show a valid racing license. Participants are required to sign an indemnity certificate.

Passenger

A passenger of 18 years or older is allowed to ride. In case of doubt, the organization may be asked for identification. By signing the indemnity certificate, the participant declares to take full responsibility for his/her passenger.

Helmet/seat belts

It is mandatory for participant and passenger to use the seat belts (closed). It is also mandatory to wear a helmet with a closed strap under the chin.

Driving behavior on the Circuit and paddock

We like it on the paddock. You drive here at walking pace and take the pedestrians into account.

On the track you avoid dangerous driving behavior and you don’t take any unnecessary risks. Ignoring flag signals may result in exclusion from participation. If you still have sessions to go then it’s a shame. But in this case there will be no refund of already paid sessions. You also follow every instruction from the organization.

If you as a participant see dangerous driving behavior / unnecessary risk of a fellow participant. Report this directly to the organization.

Preparing for a session and end of session

When preparing for a session, you follow the instructions of the organization. This will be slightly different on every circuit. The session ends when you pass the finish flag. A track post will indicate with a red flag where to leave the track.

Sound

Each circuit has its own rules regarding noise standards. The car must not exceed this standard. As an example: Circuit Zandvoort 92db with a day average of 88db. For evening sessions at Circuit Zandvoort (19:00 – 21:00) this is 88db with an average of 80db. The circuits closely monitor this. If this limit is exceeded, the participant will be addressed and it is possible that he or she will be excluded from further participation. The participant is at all times responsible for staying below this noise limit.

It is not allowed to refuel and/or smoke in the pit lane. The pit lane is not open to the public outside of participants and organisation. The maximum speed in the pit lane is 40 km/h.

Brake lights

The car must have working brake lights.

vehicle testing regulations

It is not mandatory that the car has a valid vehicle testing regulations. However, the car must be otherwise in order. The organization can take the decision to exclude a car from participation. (For a number of circuits it is mandatory that the car is street legal).

Tow Hook

The participant ensures that a tow hook is available during the sessions. It is even better to apply it to the car in advance.

roll cage

If the car is equipped with a roll cage (no obligation), then this must be provided with a protective foam layer at the height of the head.

car breakdown

If you encounter technical problems during your session. Then you immediately leave the ideal line and park the car next to the track as safe as possible. You switch off the car and go directly behind the guardrail yourself and possibly the passenger. You then wait for the rescue car and follow the directions of the crew.

loose items

Make sure there are no loose objects in the car. Make sure everything is secured or removed from the car before the session.

Electric cars are excluded from participation.
