Tidewater Sports Car Club (TSCC) Founded in Norfolk Virginia in 1953, TSCC has a strong foundation within the local Hampton Roads autocross community and surrounding areas. Our autocross season runs from March through November with championship series events typically taking place on the 3rd Sunday of the month. We usually host a novice autocross school early in the season on the Saturday before our Sunday event. This is a great opportunity for new participants to get involved with autocross. We also host higher speed time trials at Academi and North Carolina Center for Automotive Research.
National Auto Sport Association (NASA) Mid-Atlantic Founded in 2000, we are an autosport events company servicing the Mid Atlantic region of the United States. Our goal is to provide a variety of legal, organized, safety-minded road-racing and education-based high performance driving experiences for as many sports car enthusiasts as possible.
Sat/Sun, Apr 9/10 - APEXFEST 2016 Open Track Event sponsored by Capital Ford of Rocky Mount This is a two day track event at NCCAR that is open to all makes and models. The first day we will run clockwise and the second day we will run counter-clockwise! Don’t miss out! Why have a fast car that you can’t drive fast?? Bring it out to the track for only $169 for one day or $299 for two! All you need to run this HPDE event is your car (in good condition) and a SA2010 or newer helmet. (A limited amount of Loaner helmets will be available) In a convertible, you will also need to have a roll bar. This roll bar must be strong enough to withstand the forces of compression involved in supporting the full weight of the car. A factory roll bar such as those found on a Honda S2000 and Porsche Boxster may fulfill this requirement, but “style bars” or “show bars” found on some other cars like Saleen Mustangs would not work. You can sign up for this event here:http://www.motorsportreg.com/events/apexfest-2-day-track-event-at-nccar-apex-events-303193#.VnmSX9LrvIV
