TIME TRIALS Registration!

 

Time Trials

Format change for this event - You can do One or Both days!
 

After completing the two scheduled sessions this season, we've worked with the participants to come up with some improvements to the format and schedule.    

We were only scheduled for race weekends 4 and 5, but with the interest growing we want to encourage participation in this new program. Interest in an additional weekend was expressed by many, so we have the chance to get on the schedule if we can get 10 participants signed up for each day.   I've set up registration so you can select Saturday and Sunday individually.  

I've also set it up so no one is charged unless we get the required number of participants for the selected day!    No risk!

 

2013 09 26 Update!   We have reached our goal, and are officially on the schedule for this weekend!    


What do I need to participate?

  • Vehicle
    • Good condition that can pass a basic safety inspection.
    • Preferrably a manual transmission
    • You don't need a performance car to run these events!

How it works:    
  1. We will zip tie a transponder to your vehicle during the Tech Inspection
  2. You'll complete a quick ~1/2 hour meeting to explain how the event works
  3. Participate in a timed practice session in the Morning.
  4. Choose your target lap time based on the timed practice session runs
  5. We'll place you out on the track by order of fastest to slowest to minimize traffic
  6. Drive your  session and try to get as close to your chosen time as you can.
  7. Your best time will be used to score your runs.   The lower the differential, the better your score.
