Gripfest 15 sponsored by Injector Pulse

presented by Tidewater Sports Car Club

Do you have a tuned and built engine, but never had your injectors flow tested?  You may be leaving power on the table!  Check out Injector Pulse to see how to eek out that last bit for whatever you drive, whether it's your street car or your Spec Miata! 

There are new rules and a new classing structure for this event, please read ALL of this page and those that follow it.

Run in a single lap format against the timer. Cars are sent one at a time with a safe amount of distance between participants. This is not a passing event. Open vehicle classing, so a helmet and a safe car are all you need. All skill levels are welcome from beginner to track veteran!

This is an excellent event if you want to dip your toes into track driving, without the worries of passing/point-bys/stress of 20min sessions on your brakes and tires.

Pricing is $150 for TSCC members, or $175 for non-members.

If you instruct with us at the HPDE the day before, we are inviting our instructors to run for only $35!!  Choose member or non-member as applicable, and as long as you are flagged as an instructor in our system, there will be a check box for a discount.

This event will be run in the same format as previous Gripfest events.  We will need at least 6 volunteers to work the flag stations during their "off" heats. These individuals will be credited $50 towards future Time Trial events with TSCC.


We have partnered up with Racers360 to provide one-lap video coaching feedback!  We will be raffling off TWO of these coaching videos, one novice and one general competition.  Bring your Gopro and get video to be reviewed by a pro driver!  A short example of our last event winner's VIDEO CAN BE SEEN HERE.  The full video was 20+ minutes long with tons of great tips tailored specifically for the driver being reviewed.

This event is not part of the TSCC Annual points championship and is NOT a normal Autocross style event.

The format will be a blending of road racing and autocross. Competitors will perform a standing start, single lap of the course and cross a finish line before exiting the course, driving all the way out and around the main security building, then coming back and pulling onto the grid. This will be a "rolling grid". The day will be broken into two heats and divided into 2 sessions, a morning session and an afternoon session. All competitors will be given runs in both sessions. Sessions will be based on time allotted. There will be no guarantee on the number of laps provided.  A maximum of 2 drivers can co-drive the same car for this event (running different heats).

NEW FOR THIS EVENT: We have a new classing structure for our Time Trial Events!  We no longer have just Street Tire and Open/Race Tire classes... we are implementing this TSCC Classing Calculator to place cars in classes "A" (fastest) through "F" (slowest), with an additional "U" open/unlimited class which is where all tube chassis dedicated race cars will go by default.  Ridiculous fast cars can also get bumped to "U" with enough points/modifications.  If you have any issues, feel free to email trackevents@tidewatersportscarclub.com with as many details as possible about your car and we will get you sorted out.

Competition is open to any street or race legal car provided it meets the same basic safety requirements as an autocross plus our Supplemental Time Trial Rules(below). As the speeds are generally expected to be higher than our normal events extra attention will be paid to the safety and maintenance of vehicles entered for competition.

All open top vehicles will be required to have proper roll over safety gear in place this includes all convertible car, all open top vehicles must pass the broom stick test. *Note a hard top for a Miata or S2000 does not meet the minimum requirement for roll over protection.

All TSCC Time Trial Supplemental Rules will apply.  Read these rules in their entirety. Information on proper harness mounting and broom stick test procedures are contained within.

Go-karts, motorcycles, and trikes are not allowed to run in this event. We are allowing open wheel cars and formula cars to run. Cars that are not production based, please contact us before you register to verify if your vehicle will be allowed.

You must have a SNELL SA Rated Helmet (SA2010 or 2015) Some loaner helmets will be available on a first come first serve basis.

METHANOL INJECTION IS NOT PERMITTED AND SHALL NOT BE BROUGHT ON-SITE.  YOU MUST REMOVE THE TANK FROM THE VEHICLE TO RUN ON TRACK.
