Dominion Raceway TrackCross - Saturday 6/1/24

Dominion Raceway

About this event

Hello Performance Driving Enthusiast!

Thank-you for your interest in our TrackCross series.  We currently have plans to hold additional TrackCross events on the following 2024 dates, so note them on your calendar TODAY!

   Sunday 7/7  |  Saturday 8/3  |  Sunday 9/8  |  Additional Dates TBD

TrackCross is a like Autocross, however instead of driving around cones in a parking lot, participants are driving around the technical (i.e. "twisty") section of the Dominion Raceway Road Course.  TrackCross speeds are a little faster than a typical Autocross event, and like Autocross, cars are staged so that there is no chance of two cars colliding into one another.  Runs are timed so that you can monitor your progress AND also compare your times with other participant's times.  There are no work assignments unless you want to help with the event in exchange for a discounted registration fee.  The event is held rain or shine.

Number Of Runs: The number of runs depends on many variables, including car counts, course design/length, weather, and the number of problems/cleanups. There is a reconnaissance lap before each groups 1st morning session, and the first run in both the morning session and the afternoon session is a “warm-up” lap and doesn’t count toward the results. Including the warm-up laps, you can usually expect at least 10 to 12 runs, probably more unless there are some track clean-up delays.

Experience Level:  While previous performance driving experience is NOT "required", our TrackCross events are NON-INSTRUCTED events.  So, it is important that participants have at least a basic understanding of performance driving techniques and concepts, and having actual hands-on prior experience is very beneficial.  There will be a 25-minute novice-level Classroom Session to review some basic performance driving concepts and techniques, and this session is mandatory for those without previous participation in organized performance driving events.

NOTE The Novice Classroom Session will cover only the very basics of performance driving. If you would like, OR, feel you need, more in-depth and/or in-car instruction, please register for one of our HPDRE events instead ( Click Here For HPDRE Events )

During the registration process, you will need to designate whether you have participated in 5 or more autocross and/or road course performance driving events within the last 2 years. If you do not have that previous experience, you will be classified as a "Novice" and will need to attend the Novice Classroom Session.

ENTRY FEE: The entry fee with the Early Bird Discount is just $135, however the Early Bird Discount is available for only a limited time, so register TODAY!  Once the Early Bird Discount ends the standard registration fee of $145 will be in effect for registrations received 10 or more days before the event.  Registrations within 10-days of the event will have a Late Fee imposed. Registration is limited to 60 cars (which will be divided-up into smaller groups to minimize on-track "wait" time).  

** NOTE:  Registration will normally close at midnight 3 days before the event.  Register TODAY to ensure your spot AND get the discounted rate!

COURSE DESCRIPTION:  The course start and finish points may change during lunch, and/or, from event to event, for variety.  The start-line can be anywhere from the braking markers into Turn 1 all the way down to the exit of Turn 2.  The finish-line can be anywhere from the braking point into Turn 7 all the way up to the exit of Turn 12.

Event requirements

AGE REQUIREMENT: All drivers must be age 18+ with a valid street license.

ALL CARS must have a Technical Inspection done PRIOR-TO arriving at the race track. Click Here To Access The Technical Inspection Form.  Be sure to print the form, have the inspection carried-out and the form filled-out PRIOR TO THE EVENT, and bring a completed copy of it with you!

CONVERTIBLES need to pass "Broomstick Test" and may need additional rollover protection. **NO EXCEPTIONS**  Click Here For Convertible Requirements

CAR NUMBERS:  All cars are required to have a number on both sides of the car. If you want your run times recorded accurately, THE NUMBERS MUST BE LEGIBLE for someone 100' from the track and while your car is at speed.  They should be at least 8" tall, and should be a contrasting color to the color of the car. Painters tape is fine, however, here is a link to a company that can provide them: TrackDecals.com

PASSENGER POLICY: No passengers unless they are approved instructors, and the passenger must have the same safety equipment as the driver.

CAR CLASSING:  Basic car classing exists so drivers compete against those in similar cars or of a similar skill level.

Choose "Novice" (NOV) if you are a beginner or otherwise new to this (less than 5 autocrosses or similar performance driving events) regardless of car.

Choose "Just-For-Fun" (JFF) if you don't care about car class.

Otherwise please choose one of the classes below (FWD = Front-Wheel-Drive;  RWD = Rear-Wheel-Drive;  AWD = All-Wheel-Drive):

Classing Notes: 

  • Horsepower ratings for consideration above are at the crank, from manufacturer specifications and/or via best calculation on a dynamometer.
  • If you swap your engine, add a supercharger/turbocharger, install a bigger turbo, run a very sticky tire, mount big aero, gut your interior, etc – your car goes to Competition class and probably bumps from 1 to 2 (even if it’s still a daily driver!)

Street car classes:
Shall be for street legal production cars that are stock or have limited/basic bolt-on modifications like intakes or exhausts or springs/shocks, DOT 140+ treadwear street tires, full interiors, and little to no weight reduction.

SF1 = Street FWD under 2.5L naturally aspirated
SF2 = Street FWD over 2.5L NA + all forced induction
SR1 = Street RWD under 2.5L naturally aspirated
SR2 = Street RWD over 2.5L NA + all forced induction
SA1 = Street AWD under 2.5L naturally aspirated 
SA2 = Street AWD over 2.5L NA + all forced induction

Competition car classes:
Shall be for street legal or non street legal competition or racing prepared cars with more extensive modifications like engine swaps or aftermarket forced induction, DOT R-compound tires or full slicks or any tire with less than 140 treadwear, gutted interiors, and/or significant weight reduction.

CF1 = Comp FWD under 2.5L naturally aspirated
CF2 = Comp FWD over 2.5L NA + all forced induction
