THSCC will host our Annual Novice School and our third points event of 2017 at Danville Regional Airport! If you are interested in autocross and motorsports in general, or you just want to test the limits of your car (or a buddy's car) come on out for two full days of autocrossing with Tarheel Sports Car Club.  At the school you will be paired with an experienced instructor who will teach you the basics of autocrossing. You will learn basic driving techniques as well as the ins and outs of an autocrossing event. Lunch is included for the school on day 1. Most students will get the equivalent of a half to one years worth of competitive seat time in one day.  Autocrossing is not too stressful on a car in good condition, but there will be tire wear. At the points event on Sunday, you will get the chance to use what you have learned in competition. 

Please note that preregistration is mandatory for our novice school event to give enough time for instructor/student pairings; late registration is NOT available for Saturday's event.

Check out some videos of the previous events to get an idea what this event will be all about:



Novice School (Saturday only):  $45 (Novices who preregister for both days get a discount on Sunday's entry fee)

Members (Sunday only): $25

Non-Members (Sunday only): $35

Novice School and Point event: $65

Note: You may register at the event for an additional $10 fee EXCEPT FOR NOVICE SCHOOL EVENT (Preregistration only for Saturday).  

We encourage you to prepay online through the secure MotorsportReg website. Payment is deferred and accounts will not be charged until registration closes, so if you register and find out that you can't make it please cancel your registration prior to registration closing and you will not get charged. If you prefer to register at the event, you will be charged the increased day-of registration fee.

If you would like to redeem an event voucher (i.e. Season Passes or Event Passes) please register normally online and then email the registrar and your registration will be modified accordingly.
