Our club has a strong history of competing and hosting motor sport events from grass roots level such as motorkhana and hill climbs through to regularity and sprint events on the racetrack.
Corolla Cup – a fun event for all members
The Corolla Cup is a fun and not so serious competition that club members can compete in. You don’t actually need a Corolla to take part, just a penchant for having a bit of a laugh and enjoying yourself. Primarily the competition takes place at Sprint rounds where TCCAV members will be competing. You get awarded points towards the cup through things like best in video commentary, best costume and best off track excursion, in fact none of it is related to your actual results in the event.
Motorkhana is a low speed entry to motor sport where competitors compete in classes based on vehicle size in order to complete a short tight course in as little time as possible. Individuals navigate a pre-set course while attempting to set as quick time with minimal errors which result in time penalties. Events are run on wither bitumen or dirt and day licences are available at some events.
Hillclimb is a great way to get in to the speed level of motor sports. Set over a short course (and generally up a steep hill as the name suggests) each run will involve several corners as you race the clock form a standing start to the finish line.
If you prefer circuit racing on permanent racetracks but don’t want the door to door damage associated with championship level racing then sprints are for you. Several cars compete against each other and the clock on track at the same time, generally split into groups based on experience and speed.
Club members from TCCAV also compete in regularity races. A gentlemen form of racing its about choosing your lap time and then completing as many laps as possible within a second of that set time rather than being the quickest car on track. Events are help on permanent circuits with strict overtaking rules and are generally held over a duration of 6 or more hours. The competition is made up of teams with several cars.
Motorsport events dates are regularly updated in the clubs monthly newsletter as well as the clubs Facebook page
