This TrackSprint takes place on the North Course
TrackSprint is an exciting blend of autocross style timing and scoring using a segment of an existing race track. There are no cones placed on the track – we run it as is with a standing start at pit-out and a flying finish approximately 2/3rd of the way around the course.
No cones, no course work, just RACING! TRACKSPRINT!!!
Join Tri-State Sports Car Council for some fun, timed runs at Autobahn Country Club!
This is the first TrackSprint in our four event TrackSprint series for 2020. We will be utilizing 2/3 of the course for a time attack unlike any other event. Just you and your ride against the clock. No passing allowed, no wheel to wheel. Cars will be spaced at minimum intervals to get you maximum seat time. Catch up to the car ahead, no sweat we will get you a rerun (if time allows in later heats). No transponders or fancy equipment needed.
This is run similar to an autox while being nowhere near as hard on your equipment. You will leave pit lane from a standing start when directed by the starter and attack the course. After turn six you will be tripping the finish timer, there will be a short cool down portion of the track remaining before you enter pit lane to restage for your next run. We start with three runs for each run group and evaluate total run count based on time remaining after everyone has 3 runs in the books.
Driver check in starts at 10:00 AM with tech sheets due and helmets ready to be inspected. We do not offer vehicle technical inspection, we only verify. We do have about a dozen loaner helmets available free of charge.
No instructors are offered. Novices are encouraged to ride with advance and intermediate group drivers in the run groups prior to their own. Spectators and crew are welcome free of charge, but the only registered competitors are allowed as passengers on course.
There will be a mandatory drivers meeting with in depth instructions on track etiquette at 12:00 PM SHARP. Any competitors found not in attendance will be asked to leave, no refunds, no exceptions. Information given at the meeting is crucial to EVERYONE.
Please watch for updates to the event-day schedule. Plan to arrive early enough to check in with registration and get your car ready (remove loose items, change tires, etc.) to roll so you can be on time for the drivers meeting. Concessions will not be open so plan accordingly.
