About this event
Welcome to the Todd Cholmondeley Cincinnati IT/SPEC*tacular Track and Time Trial Event.
Sanction # 21-TERG-20522, 21-TTTA-56468
This is your chance to put yourself behind the wheel of your street licensed or solo prepared car on the beautiful Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course. There are two options for participation - Competivie timed laps held under the National Time Trial Rules for advanced drivers and our traditional Track Event for street and solo prepared caps, with groups based on track experience. Novice drivers will be paired with an experienced instructor to show you the ins and outs of road course driving at speed. You will have up to five 25-minute sessions to hone your skills and grin till your face hurts. The 2.40 mile Club Course configuration will be used in the morning and the 2.258 mile Pro Course will be used in the afternoon. No competition license is required for this event - just a state issued driver's license.
Time Trial groups(s) will have a practice session and a Time Attack session in the morning on the club course and a practice session and a Time Attack session in the afternoon on the pro course. Transponders will be available for a rental fee of $35.
