THSCC Points Autocross #7

Virginia Motorsports Park

About this event



The Tar Heel Sports Car Club will host Points Event # 7 on August 20th  at Virginia Motor Sport Park in Dinwiddie, VA.  VMP is nationally known for drag racing and locally known for having an extremely large asphalt parking lot. It affords us a tremendous amount of flexibility to design a very challenging and fun course.  We like to do VMP in August because they provide us with a large ice cold room for competitors to relax and cool off in when they are not on course. The other bonus is real rest rooms. It's easily accessible from I 85 and I 95 as well quaint Virginia back roads. Come join us for challenging competition and a fun time with fast peers.

Event requirements


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, 2000 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.
