Are you are a seasoned driver or newbie? Reminder this May 13th, 14th and 15th at Bristol Motor Speedway (100 mile ride from Knoxville Area) SCCA National and ETRSCCA are having there first Match Tour at this large and FAST autocross site. You can also purchase track laps $40.00 for the famed High Banked BMS Oval as well ….Please email Jeff Cox @ jcox07@comcast.net for information or register.

A Match Tour will provide an entertaining introductory to National Solo experience to local Regional Solo competitors by blending elements of a traditional National Tour with the ProSolo concept of determining an overall winner of the event, while also providing a challenging alternative event format for experienced National Solo competitors. ETRSCCA has worked hard to get STM class represented at this event. We hope our STM members will come out and support ETR and your class at this event.

Match Tours are usually comprised of about 9 runs over two days (You run the same course over the 2 days). There are qualifying runs for brackets from each heat and then single elimination brackets at the end of day two. Awards and contingency are given out per class along with an over-all awards and contingency for the brackets. At only $80 for the 2 day event, and a short ride, at a great location this is a great chance for YOU to get a taste, in a relaxed atmosphere with lots of seat time and plenty of great people to learn from.

These events are fairly low key and full of excitement that you’ll be ready to brag to your friends about. If you can’t get the time off from work or you really can’t afford to go that’s understandable.... don’t use some of these excuses to not support your club….

“I can’t go I’m not qualified.”
“I don’t have a good enough car.”
“I haven’t done enough events.”
“I’ll lose.”
“I’m not a Pro.”

• MT Goals:

1. Serve as a stepping stone program between SCCA Regional and National level Solo events.

2. Establish a unique event format that allows local level autocrossers to have a taste of what National level events are like, while keeping the experience more low key than a Championship Tour.

3. Expand the competition opportunities for National drivers

“You can do this” we hope you will support East Tennessee Region for a great weekend of FUN. Go to our forum under “2016 Tire Rack Thunder Valley Showdown” http://forum.etrscca.org/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=9839 if you have question.

SCCA National season is well under way, eyes move to Bristol, TN as the warmth of spring begins to transition into the summer doldrums. A new site on the Tour circuit, Bristol Motor Speedway brings to many competitors, a new challenge and an unfamiliar lot. Want some good reasons to attend?
How about...
1. Speed. Course Designer John Brown has categorically stated that this course is going to be FAST. With a large course area to play with, Bristol should prove to be a test of skill and bravery, where the ability to negotiate a slalom will go hand in hand with the need to place a brick on that right pedal to get the best times. Early estimates suggest that a typical course should be on the order of 60+ seconds, so be prepared for a tall challenge.
2. Smooth. Part of the reason that the lot will be fast is a recent repaving of the site. In years past, Bristol has been known as a rather rough lot. Suspensions have been tested to the limit, and riding on the bump stops wasn't the way to go. However, this year, over half of the course area has been newly repaved, providing a much smoother site to stretch those legs.
3. Car Independent. Given the layout of the lot, the eventual course should not favor any particular style of course. It's wide on one end, narrow in the middle, and egg shaped on the other side. Every slalom will be offset by its own sweeper, which should serve to eliminate any advantages from narrowness or power. Every car will have its elements that will challenge it, which should serve to tighten up the competition at the top of every class.
4. Fun Runs. No, not extra autocross runs, but for $40, word has it that the NASCAR track will be open for lapping! Ever wanted to see just how fast your car is on the World's Fastest Half Mile? Now's your chance! Just try to keep it out of the SAFER barriers; we'd hate to have to fill out extra paperwork and reshuffle the run order...
5. Match Tour! Need we say any more? Match Tours are the biggest bang for the buck in terms of National level Solo competition. Every driver has a minimum guaranteed 8 runs (six on Saturday, two on Sunday), so if seat time is in question, Match Tours are your answer. Put your foot down and break into the challenges, and one might see as many as twelve runs for a driver over the weekend. Where else can you get that much fun in 12 minutes?!
The summer heat just means we're another month closer to Nationals, so come one, come all. As always, keep your eyes and ears on sololive.scca.com for up to the second live timing updates and color commentary from the best announcers we could find... hanging around a small parking lot... on a May afternoon... in Tennessee... Needless to say, they are the cream of the crop.
