About this event
RMM Members Time Attack
The Time Attack is split into 2 separate sessions – Afternoon 12:40-3:50 and Evening 4:10-7:30PM. Please only sign up for one session until we see the interest so we can give as many members the opportunity to participate as we can. If there is a lower response than we are anticipating we will invite members to participate in both sessions. Please arrive in time to be well prepared for the start time of your session. The full schedule can be found here: Time Attack Schedule.pdf
Time Attack is a competitive timed lapping event which allows for people to use their cars in a competitive event on the track. The event is safer than wheel to wheel racing, as there is passing with a signal (or point by) in designated zones only. The competitors best laptime of the day counts as their score, so there is no rush to be fast on every lap, and competitors should allow people to pass if they are caught during a session. The objective is to practice, give yourself some room, and then set a fastest lap. Please be advised that you will be able to see other participants who have registered for this event.
Each session will have room for 16 participants. We will be running two groups of 8 for 20 minutes sessions, with a 4 minute changeover between sessions. We will break the competitors into 4 laptime classes. Participants will be classed together based on similar lap times, and there will be 4 classes with 4 participants. The participants in each group will compete against each other to determine the “winner” of the group.
Each vehicle will need to be fitted with a GPS unit (standard practice) AND a MyLaps transponder. RMM will supply the transponder for these events. RMM has partnered with ARCA/WCMA and we will work together to run the time attack events. We will be using the WCMA Time Attack Rules, and the Time Attack with Passing format. ( see rule set attached Section 2.9. on page 21) This will give the participants twice as much seat time as the non-passing format.
With the ARCA/WCMA’s involvement, time attack points will be available provided you are an ARCA (or WCMA) member and you have a Time Attack license. For any member that isn’t a member of ARCA, memberships are able to be purchased at any time https://albertaracecar.ca/3/miscellaneous10.htm . For members that don’t have a Time Attack license, Maxx will work with ARCA/WCMA to grant these. For more information, please see https://www.wcma.ca/solosport/time-attack/
This is a Member specific event and guest passes are not able to be used, passengers are not permitted, but you are welcome to bring spectators if you would like.
As this is the first event of this style at RMM, there will not be a charge, however one may be added to future events of this nature.
As you will see in the schedule, we are sharing the TA day with the RUSH Canadian Championship Series races. This allows us to share in some of the expenses and enhance the competitive nature of the day.
