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

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT?

A typical NECC event consists of time trials at the track and a car show at a nearby hotel.  The time trials and car show take place on two consecutive days so drivers can participate in both events.  Often, the show occurs on the day before the track event, rather than the day after, but the sequence of events presented below is typical.

Day 1:  Time Trials.  Approx. 7 AM to 5 PM.

1.  Registration.  Drivers fill out necessary forms and pay required entry fees.  Drivers are assigned to one of three practice groups, based on their cars and experience.  At tracks where electronic timing is available, drivers rent and install transponders on their cars.

2.  Tech Inspection.  All cars must pass tech inspection.  Seat belts required for all cars and roll bars required for all convertibles.  Mufflers required at some tracks.  Current Snell-rated helmets required for all track events. 

3.  Drivers Meeting.   A review of track rules, flagging and driver protocol. 

4.  Practice Sessions.  Cars are allowed onto the track for practice, one group at a time.  After one or two rounds of group sessions, any driver can practice at any time until timings begin.  No passing ever permitted, except on straight-aways. 

5.  Official Timed Laps.  Timings begin later in the afternoon.  Each car gets 1 warm-up lap, 2 timed laps & 1 cool-down lap.  During the timings, only two or three cars are allowed on the track at any given moment.  After timed laps, drivers return transponders (where applicable).

Day 2:  Car Show.  Approx. 9 AM to 3 PM.

1.  Registration.  Car owners fill out necessary forms & pay required entry fees. 

2.  Judging.  Concours cars are examined for paint, chrome, glass, undercarriage, interior, trunk and engine.  Wash 'n Show entries are judged simply on the basis of external appearance.
