Track Day/Time Trial @ Fall Sprints
September 19 @ 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm
But Wait, There’s More… (another Track Day/Time Trials event)!!
Chicago Region SCCA returns to Autobahn Country Club for a Road Racing weekend and an abbreviated evening Track Event and Time Trial.
This event is put on by the SCCA Chicago Region.
Join us for this daylight shortened track day and time trials event. Because of the earlier sunset at this time of year, we’re only getting two 20 minutes sessions per run group, but we’ve added a Time Trials group so you can get some officially logged lap times via transponders.
The Track Event is for drivers of all experience levels. Participants will be divided into run groups depending on the number of track days in which they have driven and their demonstrated skills.
The Time Trials is a timed event for intermediate and advanced drivers and instructors ONLY. For safety reasons novices aren’t eligible to participate in the Time Trials. Although a license is not required, we are urging everyone who registers for the Time Trials to get an SCCA Time Trials license. Visit the Time Trials “Driver Eligibility and Licenses” page of SCCA.com to apply. We will accept Time Trials licenses from other organizations. If you have one, please bring it with you when you check in at the event.
The plan is for there to be three run groups total. Each group is scheduled to have two 20-minute sessions.
The entry fee for SCCA members for either the Track Event or Time Trials is $110. For non-members, it’s $125. Not a member? You can join at SCCA.com Transponder rental for the Time Trials is $30. You may use your own transponder, if you wish. You can also use a personal lap timer, but your times won’t be recorded or published.
Check-in on event day begins at 2:30 PM. The mandatory drivers’ meeting is at 5 PM, and on-track activities are tentatively scheduled to start at 5:30 PM
The schedule calls for three groups running two on-track sessions of approximately 20 minutes each. For safety and everyone’s enjoyment, drivers will be divided into run groups based on skill and experience. You may select your preferred run group during registration, but the registrar reserves the right to change your run group as needed.
Both events will follow SCCA Time Trials Level 1 safety gear and car requirements. These can be found in the Time Trials section of SCCA.com under the “Need to Know” tab. Helmet and close-toed shoes are required for drivers. Trucks, SUVs and crossover vehicles, as well as most race cars, are not eligible.
