NECC Motorsports - High performance driving events brought to you by the Northeast Corvair Council since 1974.

ANNOUNCEMENTS 

HELMET UPDATE

Check your helmet's rating.  Drivers must wear a helmet manufactured within the past 10 years and have a Snell rating of 2005 or higher. 

If you intend to use a Snell 2005 helmet, check inside the padding for the date of manufacture.  The year must be 2008 or later to be acceptable.  If the date of manufacture is missing, find another helmet! 

SA and M helmets are acceptable.  This rule applies to time trials and similar events at sports car racing tracks.  ("Taste of the Track" drivers are exempt).

Option 2 - Taste of the Track.  Price: $75 per driver.  The "Taste of the Track" option is a low-cost introductory program oriented toward first-timers.  You'll sit in on our drivers meeting, learn about corner workers and flags, and have an opportunity to be a pit marshal if you so desire.  You'll learn how we time the cars and post results.  Then, we'll send you out on the track with your own car for two 15-minute sessions.  Following a pace car, you'll be able to experience the thrill of cornering and the experience of the long straight-aways.  Click HERE to learn more about our Taste of the Track program.

NECC MOTORSPORT VIDEOS!

We have three videos showing the action at our 2015 event at New Jersey Motorsports Park.  You can see them on YouTube.  Here are the links to them:

Click HERE to see Video A.  This one is short and sweet. It shows the faster cars going around the course. Video courtesy of Bill Tynan.

Click HERE to see Video B.  Here is another short video showing action at the track. Video courtesy of Bill Tynan.

Click HERE to see Video C.  This one is for Corvair enthusiasts. It has lots of footage of Corvairs on the track at our August 10, 2015 event at NJMP. NECC started life as a group that ran time trials at Lime Rock Park in Connecticut back in the 1970s, but all makes and models are welcome (and participate) at our events now. Video courtesy of Steven Calandra.

All of these videos have audio.  If your browser shows the video but doesn't play the audio, (a typical problem with Mozilla Firefox), then try the fix described in this YouTube video (which doesn't require your video to be working):  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lAGK783bb-E
