2018 Tire Rack SCCA Charlotte Match Tour

zMAX Dragway

About this event


 

Match Tour

These are the latest addition to the Tire Rack SCCA National Solo® Series and behave more like three events at once rather than a single event.

Match Tour events take place over the course of a weekend, with two sessions per day. Saturday sees the first two sessions, each being a “traditional” three-run autocross. The best run from the morning and afternoon sessions are put together to determine class winners.

On Sunday, the format ramps up with a 3-run session to determine Challenge round qualifiers. Using an equalizing index, the top eight from each heat qualify for the Top Dog Challenge and 9th-16th place qualify for the Under Dog Challenge. Everyone else can enter into a drawing for the Lucky Dog Challenge.

The fourth and final session of the weekend are the challenge rounds, where drivers who have made it into each challenge run a series of single-elimination rounds to determine overall winners for each and the Match Tour event.

Match Tour events are also part of the “Solo Triad” – the triple crown of solo for a special award and the chance at a lifetime membership.

To learn more, see the schedule below or explore the “Match Tour” guide to the right (bottom on Mobile devices) and learn about rules, special awards and contingency prizes available.

Event requirements

In an effort to allow more competitors from the hosting region the entry cap for this event is set to 225 initially. Two weeks prior to the event, entrants on the waitlist whose region of record at the time of registration is the host region, will be moved into the event based on when they registered. If the entrants from the region of record do not fill the event to the final cap (250), then entrants from outside the region of record will be moved into the event.

 This cap does not include Formula Junior drivers. 

All events must have 120 entrants 2 weeks prior to the event.

Registration Fee is:

Regular online entry - $90

Registration Policies 

Registration Policy (after online closes)

 

Online registration closes at 6:00 pm Central, Wednesday prior to the event.  After online registration closes, you can still register for the event on-site from 3:00 pm – 7:00 pm Friday and the first 30 minutes of registration on Saturday at the SCCA timing trailer unless the event is sold out.  Please note, there will be a late entry fee imposed on all on-site registrations.  If the event is already full, we will not allow entry on-site.

 

Car Number Policy

 

The number selection is first come first serve. The Motorsportsreg.com system does not allow drivers to reserve their codrivers number. With that, if there is a conflict where someone signs up for a number and someone else who isn’t the codriver signs up for the corresponding number, the person that signed up first for either the two or three-digit number is the owner of that combination. If you notice a discrepancy in numbers, please contact Brian Harmer (bharmer@scca.com) or Jamie Mullin (jmullin@scca.com). Motorsportreg.com provides the date/time of registrations to determine who registered first and is the rightful owner of the number combination.

 

Cancellation Policy

All cancellations must be made in writing.
Please contact Brian Harmer (bharmer@scca.com) or Jamie Mullin (jmullin@scca.com) with questions or to cancel.

Please review valuable information regarding refunds below. 

Partial refunds (SCCA keeps $20) for cancellations IF:
Entrant cancels PRIOR to 6:00 pm central the Wednesday before the event. 

NO REFUNDS for cancellations IF: 
Entrant cancels AFTER 6:00 pm central the Wednesday before the event.

 

Waitlist Policy

 

The Tire Rack SCCA National Solo events (ProSolo, Champ Tour, Match Tour) are incorporating a new waitlist policy for 2018:

  • The initial entry cap will be set 10% lower than the final cap (example: A final cap of 250 will be set at 225 initially).
  • When an event hits the initial entry cap, the remaining competitors will be put on a waitlist.
  • Two weeks prior to the event, entrants on the waitlist whose region of record is the host region at the time of registration, will be moved into the event based on when they registered. If the entrants from the region of record do not fill the event to the final cap, then entrants from outside the region of record will be moved into the event in the order they registered.  
  • For those entrants on the waitlist, there is no guarantee the entrant will get into the event.
  • As entrants on the entry list cancel, the next person in line on the waitlist will be notified via email that there has been a cancellation and they have now been moved into the event. When that entrant is moved over, they will be required to log into MSR and pay for the event (MSR does not charge waitlisted competitors). The entrant will have 24 hours to pay for the event before that entrant is placed back on the waitlist and the next entrant is put into the event.
  • We will continue to move entrants off the waitlist as we receive cancellations up until the time online registration closes.
  • After online registration closes, no entrants will be moved off the waitlist onto the registration list for the event. The waitlist will be officially closed, and even if there is a cancellation, no one will be taken off the waitlist to fill that spot.
  • On-site registration for sold out events will not be open to anyone on or off the waitlist.

 

Onsite Event Registration and Car/Class Changes

For any event that is not sold out, on-site registration is allowed from 3:00 pm – 7:00 pm on Friday and for the first 30 minutes of registration on the day of competition All on-site registrations will be charged the event late fee (see event registration page for pricing). Car and class changes are allowed at check-in on Friday from 3:00 pm – 7:00 pm and during the first 30 minutes of registration on Saturday. The purpose of allowing changes the morning of day 1 competition is to allow entrants time the night before to find a way to make a class. Any car or class changes made after the first 30 minutes of registration on Saturday require the approval of the Chief Steward for the event.
