Racing With Us

Your Vehicle

Every car that runs an SCCA event must first pass a technical inspection:

  • Tires - no cords showing or other damage such as bulges, nails, etc.
  • Wheel bearings, shocks, steering, seat belts and suspension in good operating condition.
  • Brakes - firm pedal with no detectable drop with car not running and proper level of fluid in reservoir.
  • All loose items removed (radar detectors, floor mats, etc.)
  • Hubcaps and wheel rings removed.
  • All lugs present and tight.
  • Throttle return action safe and positive (no sticky throttles)
  • No excessive fluid leaks.
  • Battery securely fastened down.

Pack Supplies

SCCA events are a full day affair. To get in more runs each event, we do not include a lunch break in the schedule. Therefore, be prepared to eat on the run. Tennessee summers have also been described as similar to the surface of the sun (despite what scientists might say). Please, try not to die/get dehydrated/sunburnt. The following essentials will help get you through:

  • If you're under the age of 18, you'll need to bring your parents
  • A valid driver's license
  • Military and student discounts require ID
  • Cash and checks accepted for on-site entry fee (credit/debit cards accepted for online registration only)
  • Lots of fluids, ideally in a cooler, and lunch
  • Sunscreen, SPF 30+ (you will spend 8+hrs exposed)

Extra Gear

Once you get the racing bug, and you'll get it quickly, there are a few extras you may want to bring.

  • Helmet: The TRSCCA is happy to loan newbies helmets, but due to the limited quantity, we encourage our regulars to purchase their own. Snell rating of 2000 or newer is required by the SCCA (read: M2000, or SA2000). Full-face, or open-face style is up to you.
  • Numbers and class: All cars need numbers and letters to designate their competition group. The SCCA has specific minimum size/location guidelines for these, as noted in the official rule book. The TRSCCA will help you pick your own car number, and we'll be happy to help you classify your car (post on our discussion forums if you have a question). The club will also provide paper numbers/letters, but reusable magnetic, or vinyl decals are the best option to save time/tape.

Looking for more information? Try the official SCCA website, or the SCCA Solo rulebook.

2016 Championship Points

Competitors who complete a full season within the same competition class will be eligible for the TRSCCA's year end championship. Rules, and details are as follows:

  • Competitors must be a registered member of the Tennessee Region SCCA
  • A minimum of 6 events within a class are required to qualify for the end of season awards in 2016. Any events in excess of this minimum will count towards the top scores (i.e. if you compete in 10 events, the worst 4 will be dropped).
  • Points accumulation will be based on the following system:
    • 1st Place - 20 points
    • 2nd Place - 16 points
    • 3rd Place - 13 points
    • 4th Place - 11 points
    • 5th Place - 9 points
    • 6th Place - 7 points
    • 7th Place - 6 points
    • 8th Place - 5 points
    • 9th Place - 4 points
    • 10th Place - 3 points
    • 11th Place - 2 points
    • Others - 1 point
  • Novice class competitors are not eligible for year end awards. They may compete in the Novice group for up to one (1) full calendar year, or three (3) class wins, whichever comes first. Then they will be asked to graduate into the normal class for their vehicle. However, Novices (and new, non-novice class competitors) may be selected for the annual 'Rookie of the Year' award.

Common Q&A

Q: How can I become a member of the TRSCCA?

A: Just come to one of our events, and sign up!

Q: I can only attend for half a day. Can I still race with the TRSCCA?

A: Unfortunately no, competitors need to commit to attending the full event (which generally ends by 5pm).

Q: Will the TRSCCA hold any Rally-X events this year?

A: At this moment there are no plans to hold Rally-X events. This is primarily due to lack of venues.

Q: I'm interested in becoming a SCCA Safety Steward. What do I need to do?

A: Glad to hear it! We always need more of those. First, read the SCCA rules for Safety Stewards. Then, inquire with one of our certified Safety Stewards at the next event. They'll help you with the apprenticeship.

If you have another question, don't hesitate to reach out through our Facebook page, the discussion forums, or email an officer directly.

Thank You for Visiting!

We look forward to seeing you at our next event!
