Information

Please join Tarheel Sports Car Club for our Points Autocross Event #7 on Saturday August 31, 2019 at our Cary Towne Center venue.  CTC offers us a large parking lot to get creative with the course design. It's very convenient to those of us in the Triangle and has conveniences such as a food court and air conditioned space to take a break from August weather. This event will fill up very quickly, so please sign up early. If something comes up and you can't make it, please cancel your registration so wait listed folks can join us. If you do so before the event, your card will not be charged.

To get ready for this event, please go to our web site, THSCC.COM. 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 8:45AM. Please have your car ready and be there on time. If you are not sure of how to prepare for an event please go to our Novice Checklist

Event requirements

THSCC

Your car should be tech'd 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.
