THSCC 2018 Points Autocross #2 Guys n Gals

Danville Regional Airport

About this event

THSCC

Information

Tarheel Sport Car Club Points Autocross #2 will be held at Danville Airport on April 22nd,, following the day after THSCC's much anticipated Chick's School. It's a platform for the ladies to show how much they improved, but all genders are welcome to the points event. Please join us for a challenging and fun day of autocrossing.

Danville Airport is one of our favorite sites. We are provided with a retired runway and taxiway with the flexibility for many creative configurations. We usually use the big high thrills sweeper between the taxiway and the runway followed by a variety of segments, a 180 degree turn around at the end of the runway, then we fill the length of the runway with yet again more challenging segments. Our typical course will be 45 to 55 seconds long.

We welcome all of the new Novices. We have a web site, THSCC.COM that will be very helpful at getting you ready for this event. Select the “autocross” tab to find everything that you need to know for an autocross event such as what to do, which class you should sign up for, and directions to the site. You will find classes and numbers that you can print by selecting “forms”. Novices only need to print the “NOV” class, not the actual car's class. Remember to bring tape to post your class and number on the side of your car. A mandatory instructional novice walk will start promptly at 8:45 AM. Please have your car ready and be there on time. We will be having a Novice School on May 26th. Be sure to sign up.

Event requirements

THSCC

Your car should be teched BEFORE the drivers meeting. To pass tech, you must:

  • Clean out any loose items in the car, this includes cell phones cables, garage door openers, loose change and such.
  • The battery has to be properly secured.
  • If your floor mats are not physically attached to carpet, they will have to be removed. We don’t want the floor mat to bunch up under the brake or gas.
  • Hubcaps and center caps on wheels should be removed. If your hubcaps mount to the wheel and are held in place by the lug nuts, then they can stay on, otherwise they should be removed.
  • Have a SNELL approved helmet, 2005 or newer (M-rated or SA-rated). We do not accept DOT-only approved helmets any longer.

It is your responsibility to:

  • Check basic fluids such as oil, coolant, and brake.
  • Make sure you torque the lug nuts to manufacturer's recommended tightness.
  • Make sure you have no active leaks on the motor, transmission or diff. Oil on the track is a bad thing.
  • Check tire pressure. If you don’t know what to set it to, ask ASAP.
  • You WILL experience greater than normal tire wear. Your tires MUST be serviceable, meaning they have appropriate tread, no chords showing, etc.

In addition, TO ANYONE ATTENDING THEIR FIRST AUTOCROSS:

  • In regards to displaying your class and numbers, please keep in mind that you should use tape or printed letters and numbers that contrast to your car's color, i.e. no blue tape on blue cars.
