Tour de Frank Autocross

Twickenham Auto Club is hosting a special 2-day autocross on August 18-19 at Milton Frank Stadium in Huntsville, AL. The event will feature 6-8 runs each day with each days best run being combined. Day 2 will start earlier and focus on being done on time for out of town folks (see schedule below). There will CASH PRIZES for top pax, raw, novice, and class winners! Must run in the same class to qualify for prizes. Free water provided. Stadium bathrooms available on site. Security will be provided over night.

IMPORTANT: Results from "Day 2 Only" will be used to score TAC/TVR-SCCA points event #7. Day 1 will not count towards the season points championship. If you skip the entire weekend, it will only count as only one "Drop." 

Initial entry limit of 130 with waitlist. One week prior to the event, entry limit will be raised to 150. Priority will be given to waitlisted competitors who have been competing in the TAC/TVR championship points series.

Novice Rules

To run novice class, you must have less than one season of autocross or similar experience (about 8 autocrosses or less). Current season two-time novice winners may enter novice class for this event. However, for event #7 points scoring, 2-time winners will still be omitted from novice points standings since they are auto-qualified for the runoff in December. This will be handled post-event.
 

Milton “Frank” Stadium

Courses in Huntsville are typically long, in the 50-70 seconds range or about .6-.7 miles. Charles Krampert and Lee Chhit will be collaborating on course design. Site is sealed asphalt and not hard on tires. Plenty of paddock space for car haulers. Stadium bathrooms will be open on site. Broken pavement was fixed in Spring 2018 at TACs expense. Course map will be posted on the forum between 1-5 days prior to the event -- see forum CLICK HERE.

Run Groups

Efficiency is a priority with TAC and TVR -- we aim to provide the maximum number of runs possible! We typically use a "2 run group" format, however as attendance approaches 110 drivers we may use a "3 run group" format. The final number of run groups will be decided by the Event Master and announced at the drivers meeting
 

Cost

Starting at $35 per day, and $65 for both days — details shown in the registration form.
ATTENTION! Online payment is required for pre-registration. 
There is a $5 charge for registering on site.

Championship Series Points

The Championship Series will determine the most consistently outstanding drivers for the year within a class and Top 10 PAX and RAW. You will accrue points for all the events you participated in as long as you become a member of TAC or TVR by the final event of the year. You must also compete in more than half of the points events of the year and in a single class to earn points. Further details can be found in our autocross rules here: 2018 Official Autocross Schedule and Rules
 

Novices and the Novice Championship

We welcome all new drivers to our events. If this is your first year autocrossing (or if you have minimal experience), you may register in our Novice class. If you have never autocrossed, we strongly recommend you enter the Novice class and attend our Novice Walk-thru. During the Novice Walk-thru a veteran driver will show you the basics and give course-specific tips. Entering the Novice class is in no way a restriction -- you may actually get more exposure. Please review the following:

An open letter for all novices: Letter
Novice Guide: Novice Guide

Novice class drivers will be able to qualify for the year-end Novice Championship event. The winner of the Novice Championship will receive a free Season Pass and Membership! Details about how to win will be posted here: Novice Championship Thread
 

Classing

Our events follow SCCA classing rules. Classing tables for most cars can be found in Appendix A of the rules. If you are have further questions, feel free to ask on our very active forum HERE. We sell numbers/letters on site for $1 each.
 

Loaner Helmets

We have loaner helmets available on site which you can use for free. We require head socks to be worn -- these can be purchased at registration for $1 and they are yours to keep.

If your street insurance excludes on-track driving, an Autocross + off-track Insurance policy can buy you peace of mind
