Hope you’ve had a GREAT summer break! Now… let’s get it on! See you next month at the Barber Time Trial and the Dragon Hillclimb! 

CCR July Hillclimb – Cancelled

Central Carolinas Region had requested a date to be kept open for a possible hillclimb for July. There were two possible sites but unfortunately, neither one was deemed solid enough to hold a July Hillclimb event this year. 

Our Time Trial officials and drivers  are continuing to look for hillclimb sites here in the Southeast Division. Your help in finding sites is greatly appreciated. Please contact Ted Theodore with possible sites and he can arrange a time to come and review . Here are a few of the items to look for :

General :  Location : road surface condition, hazards, through traffic, spectator areas, paddock area, restaurants / hotels for workers/drivers/spectators.

Course :    Water / Trees / Boulder / Walls / Wildlife / Spur Roads / Residents / Edges of road / Run Off areas / number of high speed areas

 Operation : Radio Communications accessible /  Staging areas / Cool down areas / Shuttle bus / Course worker line of sight / Spectator Parking areas

Community :  Good for local economy / Sound Ordinances /  Site Owner / Wildlife / Camping

If you find a possible site, don’t hesitate to pass it on for considerations. MANY of the potential problems can be overcome with “work arounds” and safety precautions.

We will continue to look for new sites for 2015.

PDX on the Banks of Charlotte Motor Speedway! August 16, 2013

Central Carolinas Region put on a PDX at Charlotte Motor Speedway August 16th for drivers in Intermediate and Advanced groups. The performance driving experience event was held as a part of CCRs Daylight to Dark Road Races . Over 20 drivers participated and enjoyed the infield and banked walls of the super speedway. All signs point to doing this again next year so plan ahead for 2014! Great thanks to all participants and those who worked and staffed the event.

BARBER REGISTRATION IS OPEN! August 31st – Sept. 1st

Barber Motorsports Park, Birmingham, AL

Registration closes: August 26, 2013 12:00 PM CDT

ALABAMA & TENNESSEE VALLEY REGIONS SCCA Double SARRC and Track Trials

August 31-September 1, 2013 Sanction #: 13-R-2411-S, 13-R-2412-S, 13-TT-2413-S

A Spectator Regional Racing and Time Trial Event on the 2.38 Mile Barber Motorsports Park Road Course located on Route 20 just East of Birmingham, Alabama. 

Make time to visit the Barber Vintage Motorsports Museum, the premier collection of vintage Motorcycles in the country. www.barbermotorsports.com

Barber Race Track is one of the most challenging and fun tracks to drive in the Southeast. Challenge the elevation changes, blind turns, and speed. We will be doing a combined Double SARRC and Time Trials Level 3 on Labor Day weekend. The Double SARRC will be the last SARRC event available to qualify for the SIC. This will be the first ever SEDIV TT held at Barber and a fantastic opportunity for the SEDIV TT drivers to race on one of the best road courses in the country. Time to set the SEDIV TT Track Records at Barber. Although a Friday practice day will not be held, the TT sessions are scheduled before SARRC qualifying and before the SARRC races on both days. Plenty of opportunity for the SARRC drivers to get extra track time at reduced cost from a normal practice day and without the Friday time off work and extra expenses.  For additional information, contact: TVR: Craig Farr Email: farrout@knology.net or Alabama Region: Vincent Coker Email: vinnyv81@gmail.com

The Track Trial sessions are an excellent opportunity for extra practice time since there is no Friday Practice Day.  Each TT group will have one session before SARRC Qualifying and two sessions between Qualifying and the SARRC Races on Saturday and one session each before qualifying and also before and after the SARRC races on Sunday.

Workers will be reimbursed for expenses at $50 per day and lunches will be offered for each day worked. Come on out and join the fun!
