TAC/TVR Summer Test and Tune (w priority lane)

Milton Frank Stadium

About this event

2023 TAC & TVR Summer Test and Tune
  • This test and tune will be an autocross playground of sorts featuring: 1) a ~30 second autocross course (timed, but not scored), 2) stand-alone oval skidpad with 2 standard 180° corners (think Martinsville Speedway), and 3) stand-alone slalom.
  • This event is limited to 55 drivers -- first come first serve.
  • This event is not appropriate for new drivers. Must have several autocross events worth of experience and must know how to work a corner on your own.
  • "Priority Lane" will be available to ensure co-drivers get equal seat time.
    • You may also use the priority lane if you are spending considerable time working on your car. For example, if you spend 30 minutes changing your tires or disassembling your suspension, you may use the priority lane for your next run or two. Turning knobs, adjusting air pressure or hanging out in grid does NOT qualify you to use the priority lane. The priority lane will be self-regulated, but the Starter will have absolute power to squash you back if you overuse it.
  • This is not a spectator event. Guests should be accompanied 100% of the time.
  • All drivers (including early workers) are required to work only 1 of 6 sessions. The remaining 5-6 hours is free to run, eat, work on the car, hang out, or leave early. Drivers should be able to average 18-25 runs if they choose (essentially unlimited).
  • Gates will be closed during the event, but drivers will be able to let themselves in and out.
  • Workers will "hot swap", meaning we will not stop the event to switch workers and cars will run continuously.

Event requirements

  • We have a strict sound policy, due to our residential location and agreement with the Milton Frank Stadium owners. Your car must not be louder than 96 dB without exception. Sound will be monitored approximately 50 feet from the course. The type of exhaust (stock vs aftermarket) is not restricted, but it must not exceed 96 dB. If your car exceeds 96 dB on a run, you will be notified, the run will be scored as a DNF, and not allowed to run again. If you show that a modification has been made to reduce noise (driving at half throttle does not count), then you will be allowed to run again. If your car exceeds the limit a second time, you will not be allowed to run for the rest of the day. We want EVERYONE to have a great day autocrossing, please make this easy by fixing your car before the event!
Scooters (and similar)
  • Scooters can be "Walked" anywhere.
  • Scooters (and similar) should not be "Ridden" on course walks.
  • Scooters should not be "Ridden" anywhere considered to be "Hot areas" (e.g. any place helmeted drivers are driving).
  • Early course setup workers and event organizers may drive scooters on course, but only for purposes outside of course walking.
  • This policy is subject to change.
