About this event
2023 Jim's Race TT & Track Event @ CMP
Brought to you by SCR, NCR, and Racing for ALS
November 11-12, 2023
10% of all entries will be donated to Racing for ALS
ON-TRACK Time Trial, drivers will tackle the 2.30-Mile CMP 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. TrackSprint is 3 attempts at an autocross-like run on a portion of the course. The best times from at least one TimeAttack session on each day and from the TrackSprint will be combined to determine the finishing order and trophies.
ON-TRACK Track Event, drivers share the track with the Time Trial's sessions and get to experience the 2.30-Mile CMP track, and an option to upgrade to the Time Trial at any time. Those few that join us for both days have a chance to take home a unique trophy. All participants will be issued a transponder in order for us to more accurately grid all participants and ensure cleaner on-track sessions. Times will not be published for Track Event competitors.
OFF-TRACK: Spectators are allowed at this event. Spectating is allowed from the paddock or any cold area. For all participants, we will provide a social on Saturday evening. Lunch will be provided for SCCA volunteers.
VOLUNTEERS: Those who want to experience the action, excitement, and festivities of a Time Trial are not limited to drivers. Corner Workers, Tech Officials, Timing gurus, and more are absolutely welcome at the event and at the parties. Helping as a volunteer, worker, or official costs nothing!
