First time to Waterford can be a little daunting, but no need to fear.

In no order , here are some things to know.

We welcome current members with comp license from ALL vintage sanctioning bodies, along with S.C.C.A, and Waterford Hills licensed drivers.
Are memberships are at par. no extra charge for not being a member of our club.
Sound Waiver is granted by the township for Vintage Weekend ( only )
No need to worry about adding a special " Waterford only" exhaust system .
That said, Waterford is a " handling" track. Driver skill and car balance are far more important the the power your engine offers.
Some people go so far as to run the back up motor, as to save the main motor at Waterford.
Trust us when we say even race car with stock engine will keep you plenty entertained here.

We do not charge extra for Friday practice (with a paid race entry)
We also offer a unique to us mini school for first time visitors.
Track orientation with experienced racers, who hang around for the day to offer help and advice getting you more comfortable with the track.
We find this makes for a far better weekend for all on track.

We also do not charge for camping in the campground or the paddock ( racers only please )

We do not charge for your entry until you check in at registration.

Part 2.

Our paddock is well,,, intimate. We ask you try and help us by taking as little space as you can get by with.
Large haulers have become the new normal. Should you bring one, We may ask to " buddy up" folks with you to help save space.
Open/enclosed trailers are afforded parking outside the paddock, and is appreciated when done.
We make it work. We just ask you work with us , as much as we try to accommodate you.

Hello,

Is ice available at the track and where is the best place to buy 110 octane race gas?

Hello ,

Yes, Ice is sold at the track by the " Paddock Shoppe" .
If they are not open, we normally have an honor system payment can in the cooler.

As for fuel, Hamilton's of Ortonville will be there, and will have a wide assortment of race fuel on hand.
They are stationed at the far end of paddock at the tractor shed next the "swamp"
Their contact info is in the " Vendors " thread.

Thanks for asking.
Cheers
