How to Class Your Car for the 2021 Rally4Vets TrackCross at Summit Point

If you have participated in one of Jon Felton’s TrackCross events you are familiar with the classing structure below.  If you are accustomed to SCCA time trial classes, you will find this structure simpler.

We class cars so drivers compete against those in similar cars and/or of a similar skill level.  We use the honor system so it is each competitor’s responsibility to class themselves correctly and to help class all other participants correctly.

Choose “Novice” (NOV), if you are a beginner or otherwise fairly new to TrackCross (less than 5 autocrosses, trackcrosses, HPDEs, or similar performance driving events in the last 2 years), regardless of the type of car.

Note:  Novice drivers will compete only against other novice drivers for points and medals in your car class.  When you register on Motorsportreg.com, you need to select Novice and choose your car class.

Street Car Classes . . .
These classes are for street-legal production cars that are stock or have limited/basic bolt-on modifications like intakes or exhausts or springs/shocks, DOT 140+ treadwear street tires, full interiors, and little to no weight reduction:

SF1 = Street FWD under 2.5L naturally aspirated
SF2 = Street FWD over 2.5L NA + all forced induction, less than 400hp
SF3 = Street FWD over 2.5L NA + all forced induction, 400hp or more
SR1 = Street RWD under 2.5L naturally aspirated
SR2 = Street RWD over 2.5L NA + all forced induction, less than 400hp
SR3 = Street RWD over 2.5L NA + all forced induction, 400hp or more
SA1 = Street AWD under 2.5L naturally aspirated
SA2 = Street AWD over 2.5L NA + all forced induction, less than 400hp
SA3 = Street AWD over 2.5L NA + all forced induction, 400hp or more

Competition Car Classes . . .
Shall be for street legal or non-street legal competition or racing prepared cars with more extensive modifications like engine swaps or added forced induction, DOT R-compound tires or full slicks, or any tire with less than 140 treadwear, gutted interiors, and/or significant weight reduction:

CF1 = Competition FWD under 2.5L naturally aspirated
CF2 = Comp FWD over 2.5L NA + all forced induction, less than 400hp
CF3 = Comp FWD over 2.5L NA + all forced induction, 400hp or more
CR1 = Competition RWD under 2.5L naturally aspirated
CR2 = Comp RWD over 2.5L NA + all forced induction, less than 400hp
CR3 = Comp RWD over 2.5L NA + all forced induction, 400hp or more
CA1 = Competition AWD under 2.5L naturally aspirated
CA2 = Comp AWD over 2.5L NA + all forced induction, less than 400hp
CA3 = Comp AWD over 2.5L NA + all forced induction, 400hp or more

Horsepower ratings are at the crank, from manufacturer specifications, and/or via best calculation on a dynamometer.

If you swap your engine, add a supercharger/turbocharger, swap on a bigger turbo, run a very sticky tire, mount big aero, gut your interior, etc – your car goes into Competition class and probably bumps from 1 to 2 or 2 to 3 (even if it’s still a daily driver!)

If you have any questions about your power level or about which class to select, please info @ getfastevents.com before registering.

We look forward to seeing you in October!
