Carlisle Events welcomes all legitimate working media members (bloggers, photographers, broadcasters and reporters) on site to cover any and all of our events. ONLY those individuals/organizations with a legitimate working function will be granted credential access. For credential consideration, please review the rules and regulations below before completing the credential application form.
ONLY working press will be issued a media credential. Working press is defined as a paid employee or representative of a known and established media organization such as a newspaper, magazine, television or radio station, web site, etc. Journalists who receive credentials must be on assignment for a specific media organization at each event.
Credential applications may be considered at anytime, however; for full consideration, submissions MUST be made and received by Carlisle Events within the established deadline set for each event. Carlisle Events cannot guarantee that journalists who submit their applications after the deadline will be accommodated. Each deadline denoted below is one week prior to the start of your desired event.

Applying for a press credential in no way guarantees that you will receive press approval. Carlisle Events will respond in a timely manner with either a confirmation or denial e-mail. If confirmed, each named party associated with your request MUST present your confirmation e-mail along with a valid ID to receive your credential from a Carlisle Events staff member.
CREDENTIAL PICK UP
Credentials, parking access and press kits must be claimed at Vendor Services. The Vendor Services building is located just outside of Gate 3. To locate Vendor Services using a navigation device, use one of the following:

Press kits are available at the Vendor Services office. These kits contain general information Carlisle Events as well as the event itself. Additionally, a free event magazine with the schedule of activities will be included.
Parking for media is available by request and on a first come, first served basis. Supplied parking passes must be affixed to the driver's side of the vehicle's windshield. Media may only park in designated "Media Parking" areas unless otherwise authorized. Media vehicles parked in unauthorized areas will be towed.
You MUST wear your credential at all times. Credentials are issued specifically for the journalist who was accepted through the credential process and are non transferable for any reason. Media outlets who wish to change the name(s) of their credentialed journalist(s) must do so prior to the beginning of an event. Credentialed journalists will receive free admission to the event and access to VIP media work areas at the event venue.
Patrons, industry guests and vendors are available upon request to be interviewed, either on site or in advance of the weekend via phone or e-mail. All interview requests MUST be made through the Carlisle Events Media Specialist, Mike Garland at (717) 243-7855 x133.
Carlisle Events recognizes the importance of photography and welcomes the media to obtain video and photography at our events. It is the responsibility of each Photographer to be responsible for the content and rights usage of all representation and likeness of the products captured. As such, Photographers must obtain permission to publish. Photographs taken at this event are not to be sold to any other media outlet, organization or individual unless permission is granted by Carlisle Events. In some cases, credentialed media may be required to complete a waiver form. This waiver allows for closer access to “high risk” areas such as the autocross track and burnout pit.
Carlisle Events would like to extend their appreciation to all media representatives who have attended the events over the years. Should you have any questions or requests please feel free to contact us directly.
