Drivers are grouped by their lap times and vehicle class to ensure that they are evenly matched in pace during their runs.

Time Attack is a bridge between lapping and door to door racing; it helps drivers to perfect their driving techniques and your biggest opponent is yourself.

There will also be a lapping-only run group available for entries wanting untimed sessions. These will follow a 20 minute open lapping format and use CACC Lapping regulations to allow convertibles. There is no CACC License required for this group, and is open to all drivers including novices wishing to get out on track. Instructors for novices will be available by request, and no transponders will be issued to this run group. 

Entry Fee is $375 (not including transponder rental)

The club has a fleet of rental transponder available and they are based on first come first serve basis at $35/event; the VIMC also has their fleet of rental transponders as a back up.
