A highlight of this event was the
inclusion of NCC's very first Time
Trials. What is Time Trials? First,
let's be clear about what Time Trials is
not. Time Trials is not club racing.
Time Trials is not a fender-to-fender,
bumper-to-bumper duel for position
at the checkered flag. Time Trials is
a timed competition based on your
best single lap. The stewards take
your best single lap time from the
competition session on Saturday and

Sunday and combine them to determine the winner in each class. Since
Time Trials is not a race to the checkered flag, not only are you supposed
to be courteous and let faster drivers
go by, you can afford to let them by.
If there was no one behind you, but
now there is, then you've been caught
by a faster driver. Let that driver by
and then follow for as long as you
can to see what it is that they're
doing. Time Trials is serious but

friendly competition.
Cars in Time Trials are grouped
into classes so as to level the playing
field. There are any number of
methodologies that a club could use
to define the car classes; for this
event, the organizers choose to
group drivers together based on
similar lap times, rather like bracket
racing. For this event, that resulted
in creating four groups: GT-1 (less
fast), GT-2 (a bit faster), GT-3 (yet

still faster), and GT-4 (fastest). The
class winners of the inaugural event
were as follows: Alex Pirpiris (GT-1),
Jack Raymond (GT-2), Peter Lanik
(GT-3), and Steve Flanagan (GT-4).
The consensus was that Time Trials
met all three of its initial goals: do
something different, have a timed
competition, and have fun.
Join us for more HPDE and
Time Trials action in 2021!
