Welcome to Vilaca Racing Time Attack Series,

Vilaca Racing Series is a non-wheel to wheel racing time attack event series taking place on various race tracks. Drivers are competing against the clock to see which car and driver is the fastest combination on the day.

 The Vilaca Racing Series is about providing safe, spirited, fun and competitive track time for Novice and Advanced drivers.

It is open to all makes, models, all drive trains, turbo or aspirated, road and race cars

Vilaca Racing Series includes competitive classes for all degrees of tuning and modification. The classing is designed to place vehicles by drivetrain into classes based on similar modifications.

The above-mentioned drive train classes are divided into sub categories that will be clearly defined by subsequent labelled sections.

Our series is about safety, fun and family. Our simplified rules makes it easy to class each competitor in a class that will keep the racing series fair and competitive.

11. Tech Inspection

Vilaca Racing does not make any representations as to the safety or mechanical condition of the vehicle. The responsibility of ensuring that the vehicle is safe and in proper mechanical condition to participate in the Event falls exclusively upon the Participant and his/her mechanic.

11.1. On-site tech inspection is REQUIRED, Vilaca Racing recommends all participants have a qualified mechanic inspect their car prior to the event, however, tech inspection will still be required for all cars (excluding instructors and staff) before the event. Failure to go through tech will result in forfeiting track time.

11.2. Vilaca Racing staff will go through regular tech inspection. Each participant must present a signed and completed inspection form, and will receive their run group sticker on a successful inspection

11.3. Participants shall bring their car to tech as it will be driven on track. This includes the tires and pads they will use on track.

114. All loose items should be out of the car, and helmet and any device that will be secured to the car during the event should be present and installed (camera mounts, etc). Participants must demonstrate that any device that will be attached to the car (inside or out) is secured properly. Any device secured to the outside of the car should also be checked by track staff prior to each session. Floor mats that are not pinned in must be removed, and glove boxes and storage areas must be emptied. If an item isn’t tied down, it should not be in the car.

11.5. If a participant knowingly has an issue with a car before or during the event, please inform the inspector as soon as possible. The participant should not continue to go out on track with any known issue. Doing so may result in a loss of track privileges, as well as potential lost track time for their run group due to track clean-up. Tracks can and will require drivers to pay for track damage. This includes, but is not limited to: fluid clean up on the track surface, damage to the barriers, and damage to the track facility. If participants are found to be knowingly tracking a car with a potentially dangerous issue, they will be asked to fix the issue before being allowed on track.

11.6. Tech inspection description

11.6.1. Lights

Functional brake lights (at least one easy to spot light at rear of car) must be on all cars and functional at all times or a car may be black flagged. Working headlights are mandatory for all cars during races occurring after dark. Any number of additional headlights may be used provided they are not deemed to be excessive or a hazard to other drivers. In night events, one headlight and one brake must be functioning at all times.

11.6.2. Fuel Tanks

Fuel tanks must be either OEM quality or better if using a factory style tank. Factory tanks are only permitted on cars where the tank is located behind the driver and in front of the rear wheels. Aftermarket fuel “cells” are allowed and encouraged, if properly installed and mounted. All structures holding the cell must be attached completely and entirely to the shell of the car and/or roll cage structure. Any cell deemed inadequate for competition will result in the car being denied entry. If participants have any questions on the legality or safety of a car’s fuel cell and system. All fuel lines must be isolated from the driver with either a metal bulkhead or shielding, and must be isolated from any sharp edges on sheet metal, etc.

11.6.3. Harnesses

All cars with roll bars or roll cages shall use 4 point-or-greater harnesses. Harnesses must be correctly installed, and all mounting points to sheet metal shall be adequately backed by large plates on opposite side of sheet metal.

 

11.6.4. Roll Cages

11.6.4.1. Roll cages must be quality, professional-level, and fully welded around all joints to be allowed on track. Roll cages are encouraged for all cars.

11.6.4.2. Bolt-in cages or roll bars must be professional quality, and must use adequate size spreader plates and backing plates on the underside of the car.

11.6.4.3. ‘Show cages’ are not allowed

11.6.5. Helmet inspection

Participant acknowledges that the inspection of Participant’s helmet by the organizers is for the sole purpose of determining whether the Participant’s helmet has met the minimum standards for usage

From a visual inspection to contain the appropriate Snell rating sticker or label and to be capable of meeting those standards at the present time.

Participant acknowledges that the organizers make no guarantee of fitness for use in “passing” Participant’s helmet, and that Participant is relying solely on Participant’s own judgment in using the helmet in the Event.

11.7. Basic Inpection list

Below is a basic list of issues that should be addressed prior to going to tech, or going on track. Please check for these issues throughout the event and correct them if they appear on a vehicle:

11.7.1. Corded tires, or tires rubbing on suspension arms/fenders

11.7.2. Loose lug nuts

11.7.3. Brake lights not working

11.7.4. Excessive play in the brake or clutch pedal

11.7.5. Play in the steering wheel

11.7.6. Loose bolts – please torque ALL bolts to spec before going through tech

11.7.7. Warped or cracked rotors

11.7.8. Fluid leaks of any kind (windshield washer fluid, oil, coolant, brake fluid, power steering fluid)

11.7.9. Hoses that can rub on sheet metal, causing damage or cuts in the hoses.

11.7.10. Brake pad thickness less than the recommended minimum thickness

11.7.11. Loose body panels/wings

11.7.15. Battery not tied down properly. TIE DOWNS MUST BE OEM OR BETTER QUALITY. Rubber or ratchet straps are not acceptable.

11.7.16. Exposed wiring, or wiring that can potentially rub on sheet metal in a damaging way to the wiring. General wiring, especially under hood, must be neat and secure in layout.

11.7.17. Lack of exhaust – You must have an exhaust, or at minimum, a b-pipe with a turn down. Excessively loud vehicles can and will be refused track-time. If you think your car is excessively loud, it very well might be. Please correct this with the use of a muffler or resonator.

 

11.8. Tech inspection failure

11.8.1. If any changes are required as a result of a tech inspection, participants must complete an additional inspection to ensure the changes are compliant. The inspector will be able to discuss why a car failed and may be able to give some recommendations on how to best address the issue.

11.8.2. Participants should ensure that they bring adequate tools. This is recommended for any track event, and will help ensure that they maximize track time. If a car cannot pass tech, it will not be allowed to drive on track. Complying with the safety rules and ensuring a car is in good mechanical condition will ensure that it will pass tech.

This is a firm rule, with no exceptions. Participants should go over every inch of their car prior to the event, and check all systems, bolts, and have quality and fresh fluids in their car. The responsibility of ensuring that the vehicle is safe and in proper mechanical condition to participate in the event falls exclusively upon the driver
