THSCC - #maylotta Weddingcross

Danville Regional Airport

About this event

THSCC

Information

THSCC presents the #maylotta Weddingcross on September 30, 2018 at Danville Regional Airport! Andrew and Maria wanted to share their love of autocross with their friends, so what better way to do so than with an actual event following the nuptuals?

This will be a slightly different format than most events. We will run what is essentially a “couples challenge”. There will be two-person teams (usually a “bride” and a “groom”), and the scoring will be determined by combining the fastest PAX run from each team member. The fastest total PAX time wins. What is there to win? Absolutely nothing at all, just bragging rights and perhaps a justification that you gamed the system.

Of course, gaming the system is strongly encouraged. There is no limit to how a two-person team is configured as long as they are participants - two brides and/or two grooms is perfectly acceptable. We will also not police any ringer teams, otherwise we couldn’t even let Sam and Shelly run together. Again, this is all for fun and too many rules spoil the fun, so we will keep it simple.

It is recommended that you figure out your own teams, and we will need to confirm this when you check in for registration. The entry list and/or FB event page can be used to scout out potential teammates, and you can update your registration on MSR at a later date with your partner's information. If you are unable to find one (or your partner does not check in), we will put all the single drivers in a hat after the close of registration, and draw names until everyone has a partner.

The schedule will be slightly more relaxed than usual, as many of us will likely be hungover from the night before and would probably be grateful for an extra hour of sleep. We will also keep the run count to a relative minimum in order to give people time to catch any return trips home, especially the out-of-town’ers. As a reminder, RDU airport is roughly 1.5 hours from Danville. We will try to work with everyone as much as possible to be done early to give you time to get back.

For those that haven’t done this before and would like to participate, we run a fairly healthy novice program within THSCC and instructors will be available. We will give you a basic overview of how to drive the course, and also how to work the course. The standard work/run rules do apply to this event, and all participants will be expected to work.

Lastly, this is a private event for now until wedding guests have had a chance to register. If we don’t hit the cap 3 weeks before the event (September 9), we will open it up to the public. Please do not share the link for the event or the FB event page to people who are not attending the wedding until that time.

Registration

Entry is $30, due upon registration.

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.

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.
