Hello again! You are reading this email because you have signed up for the NASA Mid-Atlantic Championship Circuitcross this Saturday September 5th on the 1.1 mile infield Patriot Course at VIRginia International Raceway. Thank you very much for signing up, it is going to be a very fun day!

First important order of business, please make sure you are on the entry list correctly and send any changes to Bill Edwards ASAP: https://www.twitchyracing.com/september-5th-2015-nasa-mid-atlantic-autocross-circuit-x-event-entry/

There is no wait list available for this event and it is unlikely that we will have space for any at-track registrations, but please inquire with Bill Edwards ASAP. All at track entries will be $100 (cash or card) regardless. And thanks again to all of you who signed up early, we’ve basically got a full house!

As you may know, we will absolutely run this event rain or shine. This event will be running in conjunction with another event on the Patriot Course, so please pay attention to the schedule and timing of your heat.

The tentative schedule is:

Registration & tech @ 10a
Drivers meeting @ 11:15a
Heat 1 @ 12p-2p
Heat 2 @ 3:30-5:30p
Get Twitchy Challenge Award Presentations @ 5:45p

Arrival at VIR Saturday morning:
All drivers will need to sign the waiver and get a wristband immediately upon arriving to VIR. All pre-registered drivers will be able to enter VIR free of charge from 6:30a-9a as long as you enter through the Raceplex (the right turn prior to the main spectator gate/entrance) and visit NASA registration at the end of the road in a trailer on the right. If you arrive after 9am, you will be subject to VIR’s spectator entry fee regardless if you’re competing in the Circuitcross event or not, and will need to go through the main gate instead. Friends, family, crew, day-of registrants arriving separately will also need to pay the spectator fee to enter VIR this weekend through the main gate.

After checking in: make your way down, over the bridge and turn left into the Patriot Course. We will have an area designated for parking, grid and tech inspections.

Tech Inspections:
Prior to arriving to VIR, you must have with you a completed Pre-Tech Inspection form (https://www.twitchyracing.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/08/nasa-x_tech.pdf). If you do not bring this form with you, you may be subject to a $50 tech inspection fee or potentially not allowed to compete for the day.

Drivers Meeting:
This is a mandatory meeting at 11:15a for ALL drivers, regardless of which heat you are running. No attendance, no runs. Period.

On Course:
We will be running the 1.1 mile Patriot Course in a counter-clockwise configuration. We will have multiple cars on course at a time much like we would in autocross. In addition to red flags we may use yellow or black flags which will be discussed at the drivers meeting. Sorry, no passengers during this event and there will be no instructors available unless approved in advance by Bill Edwards.

Get Twitchy Challenge:
There will be awards presented during this event for the 1st Fastest Finisher, 2nd Fastest Finisher and 3rd Fastest finisher thanks to TwitchyRacing.com and our season long support SoloPerformance.com. Please be sure to attend the award ceremony immediately following the completion of the 2nd heat.

Reminder about car classing, you go “up” the alphabet (i.e. D to C to B) as you accumulate points for modifications, not down it. Several of you classed your cars wrong when you registered, which we tried to correct as best we could instead of just moving you to NXR… we are happy to assist, but the burden is always on the competitor to class his or her car correctly. If you don’t know or don’t care, please let us know so we can put you in NXR.

Otherwise if you have any questions or issues, please don’t hesitate to reply anytime.

Thanks again and see you at VIR soon!
