What you need to know about Time Trials Nationals:

1- First and foremost, TT Nationals is an experience.  Our mission is to deliver the best possible experience we can both on and off the track.  There will be socials each evening, track walks, t-shirts and elements designed to keep the event fun and engaging at all times.  On track you will be participating with drivers of your experience level, regardless of class.  This will ensure that you are getting the best possible driving experience in all sessions. 

2- TT Nationals is also a competition.  Whether you are competing for a class win, a podium or just a personal best, timers will be running at all times at TT Nationals.  Times from previous sessions will be used to set the grid for the next session to ensure you are with drivers at your pace and to minimize traffic management.  We will trophy the top three in each class as well as the overall top times in the event.

3- TT Nationals is a National event, but it is not a National Championship.  In SCCA, to have a National Championship a program must have rules and classing approved by the Board of Directors.  This event is a pilot event that is running with an extensive set of supplemental regulations for classing and event procedures and within the safety and event requirements of the Time Trials Rulebook.  As such, we will not and cannot crown National Champions at this event.

 4- TT Nationals competition consists of 5 elements.  This is not a ‘set your best time and park it event.’  Friday sessions will be used to set the grid for Saturday.  Saturday morning you will get two sessions on the Full Grand course to set your best time.  Saturday afternoon you will get 3 runs on an East Course TrackCross, and 3 runs on a West Course TrackCross, your best time from each will count.  On Sunday, two more sessions to set a best time and then a full lap TrackCross with your best time counting.  These 5 scored sessions will make up your total time, with the lowest time winning.  So, to win TT Nationals you have to step up to the challenge 5 times.

5- At TT Nationals, we use the “same team” philosophy: If you read and understand only one thing about this event, please let it be this- we are all on the same team.  The workers, the drivers, the officials, crew, family, friends and even the track staff are all coming together this weekend with one shared goal- to have fun with cars.  

 To achieve this goal as a community, we need to make sure we do a few things:

  1. Follow the rules.  The rules are there first and foremost to keep things safe and fair.  Staying within the boundaries ensures that everyone has an opportunity for a positive event experience.
  2. See something/say something.  We all have ownership in this event, and we all want to make sure that it goes best case.  If you see something that concerns you, or an opportunity to improve the event, your experience or someone else’s, speak up.  This is particularly true in the case of things that can affect event safety or operations.
  3. Do your best.  This is a competition, and we should all strive to do our best.  However, this is not an environment appropriate for trying to grasp what is beyond our reach.   I think of it as a yard stick- come to an event and see how you measure up.  But, trying to make a mark beyond yourself is a sure way to end your event on the tiltbed.
  4. Be excellent to each other.  This event seeks to create a community of like-minded, fun seeking automotive enthusiasts.  The success or failure of the experiment will rest in our individual investments in one another.
  5. It should also be stated that the Same Team Philosophy is not just what we as event organizers expect from you, it is also what you should expect from us in how we manage the event.

I can't find the specification for numbers or placement on the car. Please advise.

More Exocet questions - I really don't want to arrive and find out I can't runfor some reason.  (I posted this below my earlier question, but didn't get a response so I think they are lost in the thread)

The Exocet can run in Max class if on 200TW street tires.  The Max 3 Exocet rule states "minimum 1425lbs with driver".  My car is 2L and about 1600lbs with the driver.  (depending on what I ate for breakfast...)

I'm looking at Max 3:  Vehicles with a displacement of less than 2.61 liters, not less than 1750 lbs.  Do I need to ballast the car to the 1750lbs or is it OK for Max 3 if over 1425 lbs?  In other words, does the 1425lbs overrule the M3 1750lbs rule?

Also, is there a noise limit at the event?

System Service

Sound regulations are: 103 db 50' from the track edge.

System Service

I'm reaching out to the track about sound. We don't have anything in the supps at the moment.

Andrew Maffessanti

I read it the same as Randall. If the Exo is explicitly allowed with its own weight number in that class, that supersedes the overall weight.

James Wayner

"There is no allowance for Ballast in Sport/Tuner/Max, so at 2 liters and 1,600 lbs -  it's a Max 2 car." -  I assume that this is authoritative, so I'll be running in Max2 (with the aerodynamics of a large brick)

Is there a noise limit?

Jon Raymond Krolewicz

There is no allowance for Ballast in Sport/Tuner/Max, so at 2 liters and 1,600 lbs -  it's a Max 2 car.

Randall Prince

I'm fairly certain the Exocet rules override others, but I'll pass this along to our rules wonk to get a ruling. Thanks for the message!

Ian Micheal Stewart

How bad would it be to skip friday and show up friday night late. 

Randall Prince

JK: I have Friday as only Practice runs. I think he should be ok.

Jon Raymond Krolewicz

You will miss one of the competition events, and with cumulative scoring it might make things tough. :-(

Lukasz Zuryk

Hey there, im new to tracking my car and just got dedicated 100 TW tires due to my daily's are about twice the price. Besides that car is completely stock and i suck as a driver. Where would that put me in this event? 

Can i even bring these tires??? 

Jon Raymond Krolewicz

Unlimited with the DOT tires also means at least a 4-point bar, harnesses, etc.

Ian Micheal Stewart

100tw in my size is literally half the price of the 200tw and 5x the fun to drive on. Oh's well. Car came with a set of Rival S's. I'll burn those up. 

Randall Prince

200TW is the unofficial universal "street tire" TW limit... whether you run SCCA, ProTouring, LeMons, ChumpCar, etc... even if the tires have "DOT" on the site, the treadwear is what most organizations care about.

Andrew Maffessanti

You can, but you'd be running in the Unlimited category.

Anyone from the Central Florida region planning to trailer their car and has room for a 2015 VW Golf?
