About this event
2023 TT #1 -- TT & Track Day Event @ NCCAR
June 3-4, 2023
Questions regarding this event should be forwarded to:
Stephen Miller, TT Administrator, at firstname.lastname@example.org or call him at 919-815-2878.
ON-TRACK Time Trial, drivers will tackle the 2-Mile NCCAR track and vie for the best single lap during TimeAttack lapping sessions and combine that with a furious no-experience needed point-to-point TrackSprint events. The best times from each day will be combined to determine the results and the top three overall and in each class take home the trophies.
TIME TRIAL - TT: Times. Drivers race the clock and themselves to receive a fast time or beat a personal goal.
TRACK EVENT - TE: No Times. There is no pressure, no times, and no racing. Just going fast with other cars on a race track. TE can be used to shake down a car or expand your comfort level on track. Drivers share the track with the Time Trial's sessions and get to experience the 2-Mile NCCAR track. Mini Track Day participants are morning only. Full Track Event participants run all sessions and can run the Track Sprint with no published times.
OFF-TRACK: For all participants, we will provide a hot dog/brat/hamburger lunch each day, and a social on Saturday evening.
VOLUNTEERS: Those who want to experience the action, excitement, and festivities of a Time Trial close-up. Corner Workers, Tech Officials, Timing gurus, and more are absolutely welcome. Helping as a volunteer, worker, or official costs nothing (you even get some goodies such as an option to enjoy your car on track during the Worker Lapping sessions).
