2023 Tire Rack SCCA Time Trials National Tour at GingerMan Raceway Powered by Hagerty

The Tire Rack SCCA Time Trials National Tour invites you to come experience the fun and excitement of competing on track with likeminded enthusiasts. From beginner to seasoned track veterans, these events are a home for anyone that considers themselves a driving enthusiast. And when the track goes quiet, the good times continue with the off-track social activities featuring food, fun, and friends! Camping at the track is encouraged, friends and family are welcome, and food and drink are available on site. Come join in on the good times!


FAST FACTS

ON-TRACK, drivers will tackle the 2.14-Mile GingerMan Raceway and vie for the best single lap during Time Attack lapping sessions and combine that with a furious no-endurance needed point-to-point TrackSprint event. The best times from each will be combined to determine finishing order and the top three overall and in each class stand on the KONI Podium and take home the trophies.

Driver Entry Fee: $325.00

* If you don't have your own AMB or Westhold compatible transponder, you will need to add a rental transponder.

OFF-TRACK: Those who want to experience the action, excitement and festivities of a Time Trials National Tour are not limited to drivers. Tech Officials, Timing and Scoring gurus and more are welcome at the event and at the parties. Helping as a volunteer, worker or officials costs nothing and those interested can apply by using the link below.
