About this event

2022 Tour de Frank 2-day Autocross & Points Event #5
  • Twickenham Auto Club is hosting a special 2-day autocross on June 4-5, 2022 at Milton Frank Stadium in Huntsville, AL. The event will feature 6-8 runs each day. Your best run from each day will be combined to determine your placing. Each day will have a separate course in the 60-second range. The Sunday course will be set up on Saturday evening. On Sunday, we will start 45 minutes early to allow out of town folks to get home.

  • CASH PRIZES for class winners, top 10 PAX, and top 10 novices! Must run in the same class both days to qualify for class prizes.

  • It will be hot, please plan accordingly (sunscreen, sun umbrellas, cool towels, etc). Free bottled water will be available near the timing trailer.

  • Bathrooms are available on site.

  • Security will be provided over night. Camping is permitted but no hookups or showers. 

  • Results from Saturday will be used to score TAC/TVR points event #5. If you skip Saturday or the entire weekend, that will count as only one drop.

  • Course maps will be posted here 1-3 days prior: https://teamtac.org/e107/e107_plugins/forum/forum_viewtopic.php?126970

Run Groups and Course Working
  • Efficiency is a priority at our events, we typically use a "2 Run Group" format and get 6-8 runs.
  • If you participate in this event, you must also work the course, both in the morning and in the afternoon. We do not allow half days.
  • Skipping your work assignment is not fair to everyone else and causes hardship to event organizers. 
  • If you have a special situation (e.g. not a football game) which would prevent you from working, let us know on the registration form, look for "Special Requests".
     
Membership
Championship Series Points
  • The Championship Series will determine the most consistently outstanding drivers for the year for each class, Top 10 PAX, and Top 10 RAW. 
  • To win a class championship you:
  1. Must be a member (TAC or TVR).
  2. Must compete in more than half of the points events (6 or more for 2022).
  3. Must have at least 36 points (with a 12 event season). 
    • For any event you where you are the only car in class (e.g. where ran by yourself), you will be awarded 1 point. If you are in a low attended class, we would encourage you to check out CAM, Race Tire, XS-A, XS-B, or Pro. If this negatively impacts you, please shoot us an email. For more details, check out section 6 of the TAC rules linked below.
       
New Drivers (Novices) and the Herb Aderholdt Novice Championship
  • New drivers are welcome. The Novice (N) class is intended for first-year autocrossers. If you have run 5 or less events prior to January 2022, you're eligible to run Novice Class all year. At each event, we also provide a Novice Walk-thru where a veteran autocrosser will go over the basics. Entering the Novice class is not a restriction, however it will allow you to get extra help if desired. To enter, select the "Novice" class during registration.
     
  • Novice class drivers will be able to qualify for our year-end Novice Championship event. The Novice Championship winner will receive a free Season Pass for the following season. Details about how to win will be posted here: https://teamtac.org/e107/e107_plugins/forum/forum_viewtopic.php?124191.post (will be updated for 2022 mid-season)

Rules and Car Classing

Event requirements

Sound
  • We have a strict sound policy, due to our residential location and agreement with the Milton Frank Stadium owners. Your car must not be louder than 96 dB without exception. Sound will be monitored approximately 50 feet from the course. The type of exhaust (stock vs aftermarket) is not restricted, but it must not exceed 96 dB. If your car exceeds 96 dB on a run, you will be notified, the run will be scored as a DNF, and not allowed to run again. If you show that a modification has been made to reduce noise (driving at half throttle does not count), then you will be allowed to run again. If your car exceeds the limit a second time, you will not be allowed to run for the rest of the day. We want EVERYONE to have a great day autocrossing, please make this easy by fixing your car before the event!
     
Helmets
Classing and "Being Legal"
Scooters (and similar)
  • Scooters can be "Walked" anywhere.
  • Scooters (and similar) should not be "Ridden" on course walks.
  • Scooters should not be "Ridden" anywhere considered to be "Hot areas" (e.g. any place helmeted drivers are driving).
  • Course setup workers and event organizers may drive scooters on course, but only for purposes outside of course walking.
  • This policy is subject to change.
