Congratulations on your invitation to the 2018 Tire Rack Ultimate Track Car Challenge presented by Grassroots Motorsports Magazine! This event is being hosted by the Mid Atlantic Region of NASA. The Ultimate Track Car Challenge wouldn’t be possible without the support of Tire Rack, Koni, Lucas Oil, Spec Clutches, BimmerWorld, Mach V Motorsports, and Ford. New for this year is an expanded schedule and a move to a 2 day format. The fastest 20 cars from Friday's timed laps plus one staff chosen hardship case will advance to a final session on Saturday.
There are several registration options below. One is the UTCC on Friday. Also available on Friday are Test and Tune or Open Track. Test and Tune is for NASA licensed racers (or drivers who are eligible to apply for a NASA race license with a current license from an approved sanctioning body). Open Track is for advanced drivers, Time Trial entrants, and Instructors who do NOT have a race license. Open Track and Test and Tune each provide approximately 2 hours of track time in addition to the UTCC.
The other two options are the weekend Time Trial group (Sat/Sun) and transponder rental. If you need a transponder, please rent one in advance below. All entrants must have a transponder. To guarantee a rental is available, you must register below by May 12.
Participating drivers must hold a current NASA competition license, NASA TT license, or have their experience verified. Your experience will be reviewed and we will contact you if more information is needed. Drivers with a current NASA Competition License or Time Trial license get accepted automatically. UTCC drivers are not automatically granted permission to drive in Time Trial on Saturday and Sunday. If you would like to participate in Time Trial over the weekend, you may sign up below and we will review your experience for this activity in addition to the UTCC.
If you are not already a member of NASA, the membership fee will be added prior to the conclusion of your registration session.
Only those that have been invited may register to participate in the UTCC event. NASA Mid-Atlantic welcomes you to participate over the weekend in any one of our groups for which you are qualified. We are currently accepting entries for the Time Trial group for Sat/Sunday as noted below. Registration for weekend Racing and the High Performance Driving School is also open, and please go to this link to register: https://nasaproracing.com/events/2776
There will be no refund or credit unless we can fill the spot with a standby driver.
An event email will be sent approximately ten days prior to the event with a link to all pertinent information including gate instructions, parking, schedule, driver list, etc. The schedule will be posted by 3 weeks prior.
