  • 2011 VCMC Track Day Registration Now Open

    Registration for all 3 VCMC Track Day events is now open. Please see the Track Days page for an overview of our lapping day program.

    New for this year, we are offering an open lapping day on September 23 for experienced drivers.

    Please post any questions you have about track days to this thread, or email [email protected]



    Supplemental Regulations

    Dates
    Thursday June 2
    Friday July 8
    Friday September 23

    Entry Fee
    $200 per event

    Registration
    Registration must be completed on-line via Karelo. Entries are non-transferable and are subject to the terms in the cancellation policy (below).

    Drivers must hold a current VCMC membership in order to register. Memberships are available on Karelo. Each event will be limited to a maximum of 40 paid participants plus instructors.

    Please note that Novices must register using the Novice forms:
    Register - June 2 Novices Only
    Register - July 8 Novices Only

    Experienced Drivers must register using the standard forms:
    Register - June 2 Experienced Drivers Only
    Register - July 8 Experienced Drivers Only
    Register - Sept 23 Open Lapping - Experienced Drivers Only

    Novices
    In addition to the requirements in the regulations, all drivers must have some previous performance driving experience (e.g. autocross, time trials, lapping, performance driving school, etc.). Instruction will be available at the June 2 and July 8 events only. Novices must attend the classroom session which will be held at the Raceway on the morning of each event. The classroom session covers the rules of a track day event, safety concerns, passing rules and mental preparation for track driving. Novices are not allowed to carry passengers except for an instructor. A novice is defined as a driver who has participated in 3 or fewer track days.

    Format
    Standard: For the June 2 and July 8 events, drivers are grouped by experience level and run in separate sessions. Each session runs for a fixed time duration.

    Open Lapping: The September 23 event is open to drivers with previous track day experience only. There will be no instruction available. Drivers who have not attended a previous VCMC track day must provide proof of experience. This event is not open to novice drivers.

    Under the open lapping format, drivers are not divided into groups. Instead, drivers will be permitted to enter and leave the track at their own discretion throughout the day. The course marshal will limit the number of cars on track at any given time. Drivers will be expected to observe reasonable time limits for each session.

    Vehicle Requirements
    Vehicles must undergo a compliance check at the track before being permitted to run. This is not a full mechanical inspection. It is ultimately the driver's responsibility to ensure that the vehicle is safe and meets all of the requirements.
    Convertibles with OEM hoops (e.g. NC Miata & S2000): hardtop and/or approved roll over protection devices are highly recommended
    All other convertibles (e.g. NA/NB Miata): hardtop and/or approved roll over protection devices are REQUIRED

    Schedule
    7:00 am - gates open
    7:15 am - tech opens
    8:00 am - tech closes
    8:10 am - mandatory drivers meeting
    8:30 am - on track sessions begin
    4:00 pm - on track activities cease
    5:00 pm - premises must be vacated

    The schedule is tentative and subject to change.

    Sound Limit
    Track noise limit is 90db measured from the racing line. Vehicles that exceed the sound limit will not be permitted to run.

    Cancellation Policy
    Club must be notified no later than two weeks prior to any given event to receive 90% refund for that event.
    Club must be notified no later than one week prior to any given event to receive 50% refund for that event.

    Regulations
    All VCMC track days are sanctioned by CACC and are held under CACC Lapping Regulations, CACC SoloSprint Regulations, and CACC GCRs. Additional resources can be found on the Track Days page.

    I looked up the rulebook on this, but it was vague. Can a
    stock Honda S2000 (convertable) come out to a track day,
    (specifically July 8th as a novice) without any aftermarket
    rollbars installed?

        Thanks for asking. We've now added this important piece of information to the supp regs.

        Convertibles with OEM hoops (e.g. NC Miata & S2000): hardtop and/or approved roll over protection devices are highly recommended
        All other convertibles (e.g. NA/NB Miata): hardtop and/or approved roll over protection devices are REQUIRED

              Looks like I will not be able to attend the June 2 track day that I signed up for. (Darn it...)

              Anyway, does anyone know the process for claiming a partial refund on the registration fee? (Who to contact?)

              Thanks,
              Pete

                Pete, send an email to [email protected].
                I recommend transferring your registration to one of the future track dates (if possible) to avoid cancellation charges.

                  Hope anyone can answer ASAP. I got a rock chip on my windshield when I drove down to us last weekend, as I remember you are not allowed to run on the track?? Or there's certain size and you can't run. Just need to fix ASAP if I have to . Thanks if anyone can answer this.

                    how big is the rock chip? anything smaller than a couple inches is usually fine. if it is a crack bigger than that we might have to turn you away.

                      I'm estimated 2 inch most but 1.5 probably; don't see any sign of cracking yet. If it's ok, I won't get fixed in rush. Thanks Carson!

                        if you are by a auto glass shop I would suggest to get someone to take a look at it, 1.5" is kinda big, you want to make sure it is safe for yourself.

                            This will be my 1st VCMC track day on June 2nd. Is there a requirement to display a car number, and if so, what locations on the car?
                            Thanks!

                              Yes, (driver's) right-top corner of windshield and right side of car as shown in photo. We'll have a limited supply of decal numbers available at check-in for those who don't have their own numbers.
