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. 

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 have a family event that I must attend, but I already registered. Is there a way to cancel? Cancelation fees? Policy? Thanks.

      Does anyone know if you can have two drivers for the same car?

      • Randall Prince

        Yes, you can. As long as you're not in the same run-group, you guys should be fine. Depending upon the order of the groups, you may be caught running back-to-back, but we'll try to watch for that when coming up with groups.

      Are Federal 595 RS-R o RS-RR allowed?
      According to Federal spec info they are 200 and 220 tw. But they still have 140tw on a side of the tire. I bough them way after spec was updated on fideraltire.com

      Hey Randall, this PDX event in July at Sebring, is this an avenue to be able to enter TT events? I'm doing SCCA track nights by Tire Rack now. What I need is to take whatever school is required to do the TTs. The track nights are great because they have the novice run group which teaches the flags and has classroom between runs. The guys in PBIR also set up the apex and braking cones beautifully and explain the cones to the novices well. But do these events get you qualified to do TT? Or do I just wait for an event with the NCM format of school before the event to come to FL?

        I think what's probably most important at the moment is whether you attend Track Night events OR the CFR Sebring event, ask one of the event managers for a Time Trials log book. This will help you capture all your experience to obtain a full Time Trials license. CFR will have the specific requirements as to what they will allow (with regards to licensure) - so you'll probably have to email them to confirm (I see some contact here: http://www.cfrpdx.com/2018/sebring_CLUB.html - but I would also CC Lee Hill - the local board member and someone who's been involved in the new Time Trial primers - lhill@scca.com). From what I hear, the Saturday of the CFR event is going to be a more traditional track event with instruction that will help get people ready for Sunday, which will have fully timed sessions on track (I do not believe they'll be doing the TrackSprint that we do at the National Time Trial events). Even if they require greater experience and licences that we do at the TT Primer events, it's still important to get that log book. If you can get it filled up with 2 non-competition events (Track Night, for example) and a competition event (either this CFR TT or a TT Primer), I believe that will fulfill the current TT license requirements. From there, it comes down to individual events and making sure you can run your car there (some regions / divisions have more comprehensive safety requirements than the TT Primer events - often due to the track you'd be running at). Does this answer everything? Feel free to email me also: prince@scca.com
