About this event
Providing BC with a 2021 Time Trials Series
TENTATIVE UNTIL WE REACH THE MINIMUM DRIVER COUNT
We must reach 10 drivers signed up by August 29th at 6pm.
This will be a non-series test and tune Time Trials event.
Join us on Friday September 30th, 2021 for a Time Trials/ Time Attack HALF-day test and tune at Mission Raceway
Gates open at 7:00am with on-track activities from 8:30am - 12:00pm.
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. During timed sessions, a maximum of 7 vehicles are on track at any given time, allowing each driver the chance to drive unobstructed. This format also reduces the peak temperatures your car sees and reduces overall costs.
This event is limited to 28 time trial seats and 0 first timers (non-timed spots).
Entry Fee - The final fee will be based on the total number of registered drivers on the day of the event. Please see below for pricing
- Minimum number of drivers (15) - $325
- Your credit card will not be charged until the 2 days prior to the event
