2021 Gripfest Classing Calculator

This is our simple classing calculator we started testing the last half of 2018.  Make sure to answer all the questions to determine your class for our Gripfest events.  This was designed as a constant work in progress meant to improve upon the old classing system (street tires or race tires, and that was it) in an attempt to provide some parity between vastly different vehicles. If you have any questions about your classing, please email trackevents@tidewatersportscarclub.com.

Please give it a minute or so to load – when multiple people are using it at once it can slow down.

We have an “R” class specifically for all non-production-based race cars, so the calculator is not needed. The “U” class is for the fastest of production-based cars, plus classes “A” (faster) through “E” (slower) . All production-based cars must be input through the calculator below to determine proper classing.

Cars that must run in “U” class regardless include Factory Five 818, Exomotive Exocets, all Formula cars, etc. Email trackevents@tidewatersportscarclub.com if there are any questions.  For now the Factory Five Cobra replicas will be considered production based but must take the hit for Stripped Interior by default.

You may opt to run in a faster class by choice, but not a lower one.

Example: If your car qualifies for “D” class, then you may choose to run “C”, but not “E”.
