THSCC Points AutoX #8-Rescheduled

Cary Towne Center

About this event

THSCC

Information 

Envisioning the impact of hurricane Florence, the staff of THSCC postponed Autocross #8. We imagined cones being blown or floating away, hydroplaning cars, our patrons making for high ground, and our fear for the worst. For those who have suffered the wrath of Florence, you have our sympathy and our prayers.

The fantastic news is that Autocross #8 has been rescheduled for Sunday, October 21st at Cary Towne Centre. Look forward to a fun and flowing course. 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.

It's time to have a little more fun. Halloween is just around the corner from autocross #8. We would like to see some creatively themed cars and drivers. For example, if you have a black 350Z, Darth Vader may be a good costume. If you have a Miata, go as a hair dresser, how cute. All we ask is that no masks be worn while driving or working the course. The staff is planning something, so don't be a drag, come as your alter ego.

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.

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.
