Understanding time trials shouldn’t be complicated, that’s why we are excited to announce the all-new North American Time Attack Council Championship presented by Grassroots Motorsports.
The NATA Championship simplifies time trials by presenting a format that lets drivers easily collect points in participating events across Global Time Attack, Gridlife, and SCCA Time Trials.
“Grassroots Motorsports has long believed that a rising tide raises all boats,” explains Tom Suddard, Director of Marketing and Events for Grassroots Motorsports. “So we’re thrilled to partner with the NATA Championship and believe in its mission to promote a healthy time attack community across different regions, classes, and sanctioning bodies. By shining our spotlight on this event, we hope we can grow the sport as a whole and bring new faces into this fantastic corner of motorsports."
The NATA Championship is comprised of three classes, each determined by tire size:
- Unlimited Tire: Any car prepared to any specification and fitted with any tire.
- Large 200tw Tire: Any car prepared to any specification and fitted with 200tw or higher tires wider than 255mm indicated section width on the widest tire on the car.
- Small 200tw Tire: Any car prepared to any specification and fitted with 200tw or higher tires smaller than or equal to 255mm indicated section width on the widest tire on the car.
The more events a competitor enters, the more points they can win. In addition, sign up is automatic, and every participant is eligible. At the end of the season, a winner from each class will be awarded an exclusive trophy and a feature story in Grassroots Motorsports magazine.
Upcoming events that qualify for the 2023 NATA Championship presented by Grassroots Motorsports are the Super Lap Battle at Circuit of the Americas in Austin, TX, March 11-12; Gridlife Midwest at GingerMan Raceway in South Haven, MI, June 2-4; and the Tire Rack SCCA Time Trials Nationals Powered by Hagerty weekend at NCM Motorsports Park in Bowling Green, KY, Oct. 12-15.
