SCCA Time Trials for 2020

I see that SCCA held at least one time trial event at PittRace in 2019.  Are there plans for 2020 and if so, when would the schedule be available?

I read over the SCCA info but there was something that wasn't apparent - is there any sort of license or credential that is necessary to compete?

Thanks.

There is not an SCCA national tour TT at Pittrace this year. However it's likely that SteelCities will piggyback one or two single-day time trials with the regional road races. We'll have to stay tuned to them for an announcement.

Only requirements are a drivers license, helmet, and an SCCA membership. Groups are self-sorted based on experience and comfort in traffic/at the limit. I believe the novice groups get some classroom time. Traffic is mostly a non-factor after drivers are sorted by lap time.

Think of it like an HPDE with transponders as far as driver qualifications, vehicle prep, ect.

Road Atlanta is only 4 months away now. I'm stoked. I probably have over 1,000 hours on that circuit in vidja games.

I'm even more excited about Nelsons Ledges. How that track got a national tour event I'll never guess. If I ever have a chance of getting a class win on the tour it's there.
