San Diego SCCA TRACK/TIME ATTACK December 4-5 2021

Chuckwalla Valley Raceway

About this event

San Diego SCCA Track Day and Time Attack
at Chuckwalla Valley Raceway

 

December 4th Saturday(CW) - Track Day
Max 80 Driver Entries (4 groups of 20 drivers - this is not counting co-drivers)

December 5th Sunday(CCW) - Track Day / Time Attack
Max 60 Driver Entry (4 groups of 15 drivers - this is not counting co-drivers)

(Sign up for one or both days, a 2 day entry gets a discount!!)

A full weekend of high performance driving!  $180 for either single day or $310 for the weekend, four run sessions per day. 

Additionally on Sunday, we'll be running a Time Attack event. This event will run alongside the Track Day, so participation is optional (but encouraged). The Time Attack event allows you to record a time in a specific class. The same basic set of track day rules apply,  the only trick is it's on you to find enough free space to set a best lap time. More information on the classes and format can be found here: https://sdrscca.com/timeattack/. BYOTD (Bring your own timing device), we allow any GPS based timing system so long as it can be shown to the timing staff as you come off track of a timed session. 

SCCA Track Days provide an environment for drivers who simply want to increase the enjoyment of driving their vehicle. For most drivers all it takes to be a part is your safe street car, a valid driver’s license, and an approved helmet.

That’s it. The goal is to give you a thrilling experience and stories to share, all from an environment which gives everyone a level to feel comfortable.  It is not to give a high pressure experience and high stakes of "winning." Track Days are not races - any on-track passes are limited to specific passing zones, and only with a signal known as a "point-by." 

You will receive some instruction while you’re there. That instruction often comes in the form of how to safely enjoy yourself, rather than how to drive at the limit. Think etiquette, how to learn a driving line, passing zones, and general techniques, which may allow you to move from a novice to intermediate or advanced groupings, as you feel comfortable.

The schedule will be released closer to the event date as we balance five groups. Our typical start time is 6:30am for registration with an end time close to 4pm, but is subject to change.
