2021 Night Series # 9 – CANCELLED
August 17, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - 10:00 pm EDT
Due to the high likelihood of heavy rain and flooding from tropical depression Fred, our club officers have decided to cancel this event.
Highlands Sports Car Club’s Night Series provides an opportunity for competitors to get a mid-week autox fix without taking up an entire day. All events are held on Tuesday evenings at the WNC Agricultural Center located across from Asheville Regional Airport.
The Night Series has been very popular in recent years with entries routinely approaching, and sometimes even breaking 100 drivers. Because of the large turnout combined with the compressed time schedule, we need everyone’s help to pull off a smooth event. That means arriving early enough to get your car registered & tech’ed within the allotted time, having your car ready in the grid before your Run Group starts, and showing up promptly for work assignments.
This event is limited to 100 participants.
If registration is full and you end up on the wait list, please do not come to the event unless you have been contacted and your registration has been officially moved to a confirmed entry. You will be emailed ahead of time if a slot opens.
1 Everyone must check-in at the entrance.
2 Our Annual Tech sticker will be available for $3. We will continue to honor Annual Tech stickers from surrounding SCCA Regions and other well established independent clubs.
HSCC members: $25
PLEASE NOTE: All participants must pre-register on MotorsportsReg. There will be no on-site registrations for this event.
