Event Descriptions and Detailed Instructions
Heads Up Standing Mile: This event will be run side by side on the main event runway. You will be motioned to your starting position by the event marshal and a green light will be your start trigger. Your vehicle will cross a set of start beams which will start the official timing. You will finish your run when you cross a finish line beam at the 1 mile marker. Your elapsed time and top speed achieved will be recorded. Do not stop and attempt to ask a field marshal for your results or times. Competitors must remain in their virtual lane which is one side or the other of the runway centerline, unless instructed otherwise by a course marshal. We will likely place cones at 100m intervals down the center of the runway for visual reference. The runway is very wide ( approximately 300+ feet); therefore, barring a major mechanical failure, there is no excuse for crossing the center-line. Competitors who cross the center-line for any reason will be disqualified from that run. Once you slow from speed, you will proceed to the designated transit zone at no more the 60 kph to your next scheduled event or entertainment challenge. If your car has a mechanical failure or you need to stop for any reason, stay inside your car and an event marshal will come to you to resolve the issue.
Ultimate Top Speed: This event will be run as a continuation of the standing mile event. However, it is an individual event as a safety precaution. This event will take place in the afternoon. There is approximately two miles of acceleration zone in total before mandatory lift off and the braking zone beyond. For this event, we recommend staying somewhere near the center of the runway for maximum safety. The lift zone is marked by large pylons off to either the side of the main runway. Competitors will brake in a manner as taught by the instructors during Day 1 practise. You will exit to the left at the end of the braking zone/runway. Signs, marshals and cones will indicate your transit route to the next scheduled event or entertainment challenge. Transit zone speed limit is 60 kph.
Dual Road Course Time Attack Competition: This event is equivalent to a high speed auto-cross event. The difference is that you will be assigned to one of two courses, and you will run at the same time as another competitor on his/her course. A start official will point you to your assigned course start line. A green light will indicate the timed start of the event. You will proceed through the course as indicated by pylons/chalk. If you hit any pylons, 1 second will be added/pylon hit to your overall time for the course. The goal is to finish the course in the quickest time you can without hitting any pylons. The finish lines will be short straightaways visually close to each other. We may chose to run different class vehicles simultaneously for crowd entertainment (TBD). Your results will be recorded and broadcast over the big screens. Upon crossing the finish line you will have a braking zone to bring your vehicle to a complete stop. Once you have completely stopped and are waved on by an official, you may proceed via the designated transit zone to the next scheduled event or entertainment challenge. Transit zone speed limit is 60 kph.
Wet Drift Challenge: This event is based on a skid pad training concept. We use water to reduce the speed required to drift, and to lessen the wear and tear on the tires. The idea is to drive your vehicle in a circle (you may chose clockwise or counter clockwise) up to the point where it is breaking traction. You then use throttle and steering to initiate a loose condoition where the tail of the car steps out of line. You attempt to continue in the circular path with the tail of the car slipping at an angle relative to your direction of travel. Throttle modulation, and careful steering inputs are required to keep the drift going along your intended path. The goal is to keep the car circulating around the circle a maximum number of times while in a drifting condition. It is very challenging and exhilarating to do correctly for one lap, let alone multiple laps. Competitors will have 2.5 minutes per session to achieve their maximum number of continuous laps in a drift state. Judges and crowd cheering will generate style points with an over-all crowd favourite being selected per class. If your vehicle exits the outside of the course at any time during your attempt, that session will be terminated. Once you have used your allotted time, you will be waved off the course by an official. A class champion will be determined by the end of the day, and a trophy awarded. You may proceed via the designated transit zone to the next scheduled event or entertainment challenge at no more than 60 kph.
Freestyle Donut/Burnout Challenge: A crowd favourite. This event is based on the concept of burning rubber! You will be given 30-60 seconds (TBD) to achieve the maximum number of donut rotations or best free-style within the designated zone. You may choose to go in either direction or in combination or just in a straight line. If you knock over a zone pylon or exit the designated zone at any time during your attempt, your session will be terminated. Event judges will record your maximum number of rotations, and/or style. Judge scoring along with input from the crowd regarding your performance style will help determine your final score. A class champion will be determined by the end of the day, and a trophy awarded. Upon completion of the event, you may proceed to the Competitor Pit/VIP area, or back to the standing mile staging area via the designated transit zone at no more than 60 kph.
