Barber Race Track is one of the most challenging and fun tracks to drive in the Southeast. Challenge the elevation changes, blind turns, and speed. We will be doing a combined Double SECS. Double SARRC and Track Trials on Labor Day weekend. The Double SECS can qualify you for the SCCA Runoffs. The Double SARRC will be the last SARRC event available to qualify for the SIC. The SEDIV TT Championship Series returns to Barber with a fantastic opportunity for the SEDIV TT drivers to race on one of the best road courses in the country. Time to set the SEDIV TT Track Records at Barber.
The Track Trial sessions are an excellent opportunity for extra practice time since there is no Friday Practice Day. Each TT group will have two sessions before SECS/SARRC Qualifying and one session between Qualifying and the SECS/SARRC Races on Saturday and one session each before qualifying and also before the SECS/SARRC races on Sunday. Plenty of opportunity for the SECS/SARRC drivers to get extra track time at reduced cost from a normal practice day and without the Friday time off work and extra expenses. Road Race drivers wanting additional track time before Qualifying 1 should sign-up for the One Day Track Trial on Saturday, in addition to the SECS/SARRC. That will provide an additional 50 minutes of track time. For additional information, contact Race Chair: Craig Farr Email: email@example.com
Workers will be reimbursed for expenses at $50 per day and lunches will be offered for each day worked. Come on out and join the fun!

Improved Touring – EZ
The purpose of IT-EZ is to create a regional class where cars built for ChumpCar or Lemons racing, or for cars that could be ITE legal but do not belong in the fast race group, to have a place to race on an SCCA Regional race weekend. As opposed to any other class of SCCA road racing, IT-EZ competition is designed as a “fun run” class, without any promise of intent of performance equitability. ITâ€EZ is designed to provide a way for drivers to earn an SCCA racing license and race in regional competition, with the absolute lowest cost vehicle. In no way will any waivers be considered or granted in areas regarding safety of vehicle or driver. IT-EZ vehicles may race with prior accident damage, as long as that prior damage does not create a danger to the driver of that vehicle or fellow competitors.
Non-functional additions to vehicles, whose primary purpose is to express creativity, theme, are allowed only if do not create a potential safety hazard to the driver or fellow competitors.
IT-EZ eligible vehicles: Must be a “mass produced,” gas or diesel powered, four wheel passenger car. Minimum weight of 1800 pounds and a maximum weight of 4000 pounds and a production based engine. Tires must conform to applicable Improved Touring rules, i.e., must be DOT rated tires, and sizes must be consistent with allowable dimensions per the GCR. 190 wear dated tires are not mandated, but they may be used if the racer prefers. Preparation regarding brakes, suspension, and engine must meet either Chumpcar rules or SCCA Improved Touring rules".
