  • 2021 Time Attack / Time Trials Season


    In 2021 we have created a new Time Attack dedicated group, Speedy Goat Motorsports Club which will be hosting the 2021 Time Attack / Time Trials season. You will still see the same smiling faces, organizers, and volunteers committed to offering a complete Time Attack series. The new group will also promote alongside VCMC and UBCSCC in their lapping events.

    More information can also be found at:

    Time Attack offers a safe environment for drivers looking to join a group of people who test both their personal limits and the limits of the car. We aim to create a constructive community for participants to work together and defeat the proverbial clock. Time Attack is also a logical choice for those who enjoy competing in auto-X, but would like a little more seat time per dollar.

    Run heats will be staggered based on each cars fastest time of the day. If you surpass another vehicles lap time, you will run ahead of them in your heat. Organizers will actively update and stage drivers based on their perspective lap times.

    FAQ:
    What is Time Attack / Time Trials?
    Time Trials events are the combination of an Autocross event mixed with a Track / Lapping event. Drivers get the opportunity to drive around the track unobstructed and measure their best lap. Drivers work to improve both themselves and their vehicles as they can monitor their progress throughout the season.

    Is my vehicle eligible?
    Stock and modified vehicles are welcome! If you have driven your vehicle at auto-X or Lapping/ HPDE event, you are eligible. You will need to check your car as a technical inspection before and at the event.
    All vehicles must be in a safe condition and pass an inspection to be conducted prior to the event. All items in this section are to be inspected to ensure the vehicle meets all requirements without exception and are subject to the approval of the scrutineer at each event.

    Am I eligible?
    Yes, you are encouraged to come out! We will have coaches available for your first event to help guide you through the day and allow you to safely learn the track. Vehicles and drivers are paired into groups with similar experience and driving styles to keep everyone drivingly smoothly on the track.
    To aid learning and driver focus, your first event will not be timed (you do not need to rent a transponder). Drivers are also grouped into similar lap time sessions allowing participants to drive at their own pace without feeling pressured to over-drive.

    What safety gear is required?
    You will be required to me SCCA required safety for your class. Most cars meet these requirements with a properly maintained vehicle.
