Speedy Goat Time Trials #6 - Saturday Aug 14th

Vancouver Island Motorsport Circuit

About this event


Providing BC with a 2021 Time Trials Series


Join us on Saturday August 14th, 2021 for a Time Trials track day at Vancouver Island Motorsport Circuit

Gates open at 9:30am with on-track activities from 10:15am - 5:30pm.

 

Time Trials events are open to both new and experienced drivers looking to join a community, improve their driving, learn safe track etiquette, and have a fun day. Compared to a Lapping or HPDE event, Time Trials limits each session to 3 full hot-laps, but offers an increased number of sessions per day. This format reduces the peak temperatures your car sees and reduces overall costs.


This event is limited to 35 time trial seats and 7 first timers (non-timed spots).

Instruction will be provided to the novice group in either a lead-follow format or in-vehicle instruction depending on COVID-19 regulations. This will allow you to safely become acclimatized to the track. In order to focus on instruction and learning the track, the novice group will not be timed for their first event.
