THSCC Autocross Jimmy V Charity Event (Pts 4 & 5)

Cary Towne Center

About this event

THSCC

Information

TarHeel Sports Car Club will host its annual Jimmy V Charity event at Cary Towne Center. You can spend June 30th and July 1st crushing cones against cancer! THSCC will hold raffle drawings with prizes and give-aways. There will be plenty of competition for anyone who is willing to put their car (or their friend's car) through it's paces. Come out and help us support a great cause! All of the proceeds for both days and the raffle will be donated to the Jimmy V Foundation for Cancer Research. Raffle prizes are donated by local car enthusiast businesses. Other than financing an end to cancer, the best part of this weekend adventure is that Cary Towne Centre has given us access to the largest portion of their parking lot “””EVER””. The date has been changed from last year so that we can use the portion of the parking lot normally used by the Special Olympics State Games. Our Jimmy V event is one of our most popular so be sure to register early. THSCC regulars will be competing on Saturday for annual points at event #4 followed on Sunday by points event #5. If you have wanted to learn more about autocross or you have had an urge to give it a try, this is the event to start. There will be plenty of instructors on hand to help you get started. It's our only event in the middle of the Triangle.

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.
