Cincinnati Region SCCA is proud to once again offer this great event. On July 29th 2022 we will be having our Track Event and Time Trial at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course.
This is your chance to put yourself behind the wheel of your street licensed or solo prepared car on the beautiful Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course. There are two options for participation – Competitive timed laps held under the National Time Trial Rules for advanced drivers and our traditional Track Event for street and solo prepared caps, with groups based on track experience. Novice drivers will be paired with an experienced instructor to show you the ins and outs of road course driving at speed. The 2.258 mile Pro Course configuration will be used in the morning and the 2.40 mile Club Course will be used in the afternoon. No competition license is required for this event – just a state issued driver’s license.
Time Trial groups(s) will have a practice session and a Time Attack session in the morning on the Pro Course and a practice session and a Time Attack session in the afternoon on the Club Course. Transponders will be available for a rental fee of $35.
* Successful completion of Friday activities will qualify advanced drivers to compete in wheel-to-wheel racing in a one hour bracket race on Saturday afternoon, regardless of competion license grade. (The car must meet the safety requirements and need a driver’s suit.)
Stick around for the weekend and volunteer as an official race worker and earn a $25 rebate on your entry fee.
Cost for the Friday event is $240. You must be an SCCA member, but if you are not currently a member we will provide you with a weekend membership for $15.
YOUR CREDIT CARD WILL NOT BE CHARGED UNTIL REGISTRATION CLOSES

While we continue to perfect the plans for our July 29-31 Race weekend at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course, we invite you to register your INTENT to attend. This will help us to know how we might need to modify groups to provide the best possible experience for you AND it will add you to the mailing list so you will know the DAY registration opens. Then you can be the first to officially register and increase your chances of getting your first choice of car number. This sign up applies to Regional Road Racing, Track Event, Time Trial and Workers. If you are competing in H Production and are not a member of HPNPC, you can let us know and we will fill you in on the exciting opportunity available to you this year.
The INTENT to register page is available at cincyscca.motorsportreg.com.
Plans are coming together for our July 29-31 Race weekend at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course. We are offering a full menu of regional road racing, as well as an opportunity to put your street legal or solo car on the track. We plan to continue (and improve upon) the Time Trial option we started last year, and there is also an opportunity to participate in a 1-hour wheel to wheel race in your safety prepared car – even if you don’t have a competition license or your car is not set up to SCCA class specifications. Whatever your level of experience – from racecourse novice to national champion – there is a place for you during the Friday track day. In addition, we are excited to be a part of the H Production Nationwide Championship this year, as they are holding the “Mike Cummings H Production Invitational” in conjunction with the regional event. There is truly something for everyone.
We are always looking for volunteers to help with administration and also in the race support specialties, such as flagging, timing and scoring and grid. If driving fast is not your thing, but being around those who are driving fast is, this is your place to be. It’s fun to get up close and personal with the cars and drivers. We are planning to have our traditional worker picnic with door prizes and live entertainment.
Race committee meetings will resume in January. We meet on the second Tuesday of the month. Let us know if you want to be part of the planning process.
Please join us!
