New Year Social & Sim Racing

Registration Opens at 12:00 p.m. on November 15, 2021 and closes November 30.

Welcome in the New Year with a Region Member Social with an option to Sim Race at The Track at Asheville.

We’ll be taking over the new Track at Asheville, a Racing Simulator Facility new to Asheville. Appalachian Region will be offering Coffee and Donuts for members to gather in the New Year to socialize and experience the hottest new motorsports activity, Sim Racing. You can come for just Coffee and socializing, or you can try Sim Racing.

Sim Racing will be new for most members of the Region so this is your chance to try Sim Racing when everyone is new at it. We’ll all experience the thrills of racing without worries of the danger or cost.

The Track at Asheville features 12 racing simulators. You have a choice of a single screen simulator (Novice) or if you want a more realistic experience you can drive in the three-screen simulator (Advanced - not in experience but in on-screen realism).

We have developed a day of racing that will lead to a New Year’s Champion in the Novice Class (standard single-screen simulator) and a Champion in the Advanced Class (greater realism three-screen simulator.)

Novice Class participants will experience Sim Racing on the single screen race simulators as pictured above. It is a very realistic experience where you will drive the famous Watkins Glen racetrack in an introductory low powered racecar with automatic transmission so you can focus on learning and enjoying the experience.

The Novice entry price of $20 buys one practice session and one heat race. There will be two heat races of 6 Novice drivers each. The 6 fastest Heat finishing times from all Novice Racers will progress to a Champion race, where the winner will be awarded a Trophy. If you buy two sessions for a total of $40, you get two practice sessions, two heat races and you double your chance to advance to the Champion race for Novice drivers. Please register the same person a second time to get both sessions.

Advanced Class Sim Racing are for those wanting a more realistic experience. The Advanced Simulators use a three-screen simulator enveloping the driver in a more realistic cockpit experience.

The Advanced entry price of $30 buys one practice session and one heat race. There will be two heat races of 6 Advanced drivers each. The 6 fastest Heat finish times from all Advanced Racers will progress to a Champion race, where the winner will be awarded a Trophy. If you buy two sessions for a total of $60, you get two practice sessions, two heat races and you double your chance to advance to the Champion race for Advanced drivers. Please register the same person a second time to get both sessions.

Sign up before midnight, November 30, 2021, for the New Year’s Sim Racing Championship.
