HOD loves Sonoma Raceway!  This iconic track is a challenge to driver and car. It is said that if you can drive Sonoma Raceway well, you are ready for any track in North America!

HOD maintains reasonable sized run groups in a non-competitive environment which is focused on providing a safe, fun and rewarding experience.

We operate carefully managed events at Sonoma for intermediate and advanced drivers only. You must be solo-signed off by HOD, or another recognized group, before you can drive with HOD at Sonoma. If you have yet to be sure of your qualifications to drive with HOD at Sonoma, please email us at and we will be happy to discuss this with you. We will provide orientation laps and safety orientation to experienced drivers who are new to Sonoma.

Note that a family membership/username in Team HOD is required. This is a once-a-year membership with worthwhile benefits. The membership can be shared by a household, including offspring up to 25 years of age who are still living at home. If you have yet to become a member of Team HOD, the HOD registration process will have you join when you are registering for an event.

6" numbers are required on both sides of the car. Numbers are available from HOD at helmet rental for $5. Helmet rentals are available in a variety of sizes for $25.

The Sonoma Raceway gate opens at 6:30am and check in starts at 6:45am in the John Cardinale Media Center.
