I'm thinking about going this year. if there are any other WSCC members that want to go, lets see what we can do. The Standing Start single lap is similar to the old Top Gear feature "star in a reasonably priced car" and with Auto X and Drag Racing all on the schedule it makes for a busy weekend of tire annihilation! I haven't been to Brainerd in a long time, this sounds like fun for sure
What is TTS?
Triple Track Showdown. This is a combination of Drag Racing, Parking lot AutoX, and Road Course. Prove that you have the skill and car that can do it all. A combined score from all three events will determine the winner of each class.
Spend Saturday morning trying to get your best quarter mile time. Each driver will be given 3 drag passes.
AutoX is a timed competition where the driver will navigate through a course designated by traffic cones. Each driver will race against the clock (not wheel-to-wheel) for the quickest time. This requires quick thinking and fast action driving. Essentially it's a miniature road course outlined with cones. TTS AutoX will start on Saturday at 3pm.
This is the real deal, high speed, road course driving. Similar to the Auto-X, this is a race against the clock (not wheel-to-wheel). You will be given one 20minute practice session to learn the track along with two attempts at the Standing-Start Shootout. There will be a mandatory drivers meeting before you are allowed on track.
All TTS Entries are automatically entered into the MN Time Attack. Your best standing start lap time will go towards the TTS competition as well as the Time Attack.
I think it's an understatement to say we have received a lot of feedback on our supplimentrary rules both positive and negative. We cannot ignore tho that the majority are against the supplimentrary rules.
With the feedback given we have decided to scrap the 2019 supplimentrary rulebook written and continue running under the asn national scoring classing system.
While we received many different views and had very healthy discussions about the pros and cons of both classing types it would be irresponsible of Brooke and I to force in a rulebook that is not in favor of the majority of time attack.
However the last thing wewant to do is stop the discussion. Time attack is the fastest growing form of motorsports and is still very young compared to all the other disciplines. With the brand new formation of the North American Time Attack council reprisenting all levels of timeattack its will be very interesting what the future holds. We are all participating in a very import period for time attack and should all be proud of being a part of such a new and amazing discipline.
Thank you all for your feedback and discussion.
See you all in 2019.
Ian and Brooke
