It's now time to get registered for the "Thrilla in Tooele" Regional Races and Club trials slated for the weekend of August 9-10th! The weekend is planned for the East Track at Miller Motorsports Park.
What it is. This race weekend will consist of Two 14 lap SCCA Regional races per day preceded by Two practice sessions and a qualifier. There will also be 3 Club Trial sessions per day.
In order to be eligible for the races you'll need to have either an SCCA Novice, Regional, National, or Pro license. There are also other licenses that are recognized by the GCR for eligibility. I.E. NASA, PCA, FIA, BMWCCA etc...
For the Club Trials we will be hosting a Beginner/Intermediate day on Saturday and an Advanced day on Sunday. Timing will be available for all sessions, if you don't already have a transponder one may be rented from MMP at a cost of $25 per day. If you will be running on Saturday and will need an instructor there will be some available so please make a note of it once you sign up. This is an excellent way to safely test your car and your abilities in a controlled environment. If you have not participated in one of our club trials before this is an excellent opportunity to get on track for a good price in a very safe environment.
There is also talk of putting on an endurance Kart race on Saturday night for those that are interested. You'd want to partner up with a team of 3-4 people and plan on about Two hours after the Regional races are done. The first hour would consist of practice and the second hour would be the race with pit stops and everything! We'd use the rental karts at MMP and it should be a very fun way to spend the evening. We would also set up the evenings BBQ party close to the Kart track so that the Peanut gallery can get involved with the racing as well!
As a special benefit to our volunteers for helping out this weekend we will be providing the first two Club Trial sessions free of charge if you are helping to put on the event! So please sign up now and make sure you get a spot! If you will be doing this register for both the Club Trial and as a volunteer for the Races.
If you are planning on participating we really need you to be counted by July 27th! Please sign up now at http://www.dlbracing.com/default.aspx? Once again it's August 9-10th and there are separate registrations for the Races and Club Trials. If you can't afford the payment right now please select Pay by check and we can settle up at the track either through a Credit card or a check, right now we really need to get an accurate count for participation!
Hope you all can make it and it would be great to see some new (or familiar but new to the track) faces out this weekend supporting our local club!!

We are really close to canceling this race.
If you are planning on either racing or doing the track day club trial you have until Monday to have your voice heard. Where we are at with 11 racers and 3 Club Trialers does not come close to making our budget for the weekend.
I really, really, really want this race to happen so please register at DLBracing.com if you plan on attending!

EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED -
Racers and Workers, It is with a heavy heart, and some frustration that I must announce the cancellation of the August 9-10 Utah SCCA Thrilla in Tooele double regional and club trials. Registration numbers were just too low for us to move forward with the final preparations for the event.
Thank you for your support.
