[4:15:11] NCRC Chrono Series
The Chrono Series is NCRC's Time Trial series, providing a separate run group for a more exciting driving series much closer to a race format, and a "framework" for marque-specific time trial/challenge groups. Drivers race against the clock to set their best lap time (Chrono being Greek for "time") for the day, within the boundaries of key safety rules..
Season winners will be determined by selecting the best four Chrono finishes for each driver for the season. Drivers who participate in more than four Chrono events will have an opportunity to improve their scores, drivers who participate in fewer than four events will have fewer opportunities for season points.
The 2014 season will be run at the Thunderhill and Buttonwillow racetracks. The schedule is:
- Sunday March 23, Thunderhill
- Sunday April 13, Buttonwillow
- Sunday June 29, Thunderhill
- Sunday August 3, Thunderhill
- Sunday Sept 28, Buttonwillow
- Sunday October 26, Thunderhill
Registration for the Chrono series is through the NCRC web site registration process. Note that we expect high attendance for Chrono events, and it is your responsibility to be registered and paid early enough to guarantee a spot in the event.
Points are earned at each series event and are accumulated for the year-end championship. Points are awarded
to the top 8 finishers for each class as follows:
1st = 10 pts, 2nd = 8 pts, 3rd = 6 pts, 4th = 5 pts, 5th = 4 pts, 6th = 3 pts, 7th = 2 pts, 8th = 1 pt
Penalty points are subtracted from the day's score for each spin or major "off" (2/4 wheels on turn exit). Two wheels off at an apex is not a penalty. NCRC Management will reserve the right to assign a penalty for dangerous or overly aggressive driving. For one penalty, one point; two penalties = 3 points; 3 penalties= 6 points; four penalties and you're out of the event for the day.
