This event is held under the applicable rules outlined in the 2012 CACC Solosprint Regulations and CACC General Competition Regulations (GCR). Copies are available online at http://www.caccautosport.org/

This event is designed for a driver to improve and test their car handling skills at speeds higher than Autoslalom speeds. The event is four timed laps of the track with a second car spaced half a lap away. Timing is raw times for each class with no indexed times. Classing is as per the CACC Solosprint rule book http://www.caccautosport.org/pdf/2012/2 ... lebook.pdf

Entrants will be divided into two run groups. Each entrant will be paired with a car that is relatively matched to speed and driving skills. Each run group will cycle through work assignment and run group on the track. Each run group will get a minimum of three track sessions. Each car in a run group will be release by the starter with a safe distance between them. There will be no passing allowed.

To preregister on the VMSC forum http://www.vmsc.ca/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1344958844 , follow the format below:

Passengers are not permitted.

All vehicles must be muffled with a maximum allowable sound level of 95dB. Entrants exceeding this limit will be given one warning, and will be permitted to make modifications to reduce sound. Entrants will be asked to leave if they cannot comply with this sound limit.

Multiple entrants may drive the same vehicle during a Solosprint with a maximum of two drivers per car entered and will be placed in a different group.

VMSC is a volunteer organization. We organize these events so that we may participate as well. As an entrant please offer your assistance, from tech inspection to track set up to take down. The easier the work is for the organizer the higher the likelihood of more events!

We always need volunteers to help get things set up in the morning! We specifically are looking for the following:

Tech inspection
Track Setup
If you would like to volunteer, contact Karl via email at sanctioned at victoriamotorsports dot ca

Just a note to anyone who is considering coming out and has not yet applied for their Solosprint license.

I spoke with the CACC licensing administrator regarding late license applications. You do not need to have your license in hand for the event. I will get a list of all Solosprint license holders that may have not received their license on August 24.

Anyone who is not sure about the licensing requirements, PM me and I'll be happy to help you.

The supplemental regulation have been posted to the VMSC forum link above.

So it is not too late to apply but do it soon!
