===Definitive Frequently Asked Question Thread===
 
What is Ontario Time Attack (OTA)?

* One of the most affordable forms of motorsport to access and compete on Ontario’s finest race tracks.
* Drive your car to the limit against the clock without worrying about passing or car-to-car contact.
* A great place to enjoy the thrill of pushing yourself and your car; competitors here are also friends, teachers, and mentors.
* A Time Attack School at the beginning of the year to get you up to speed for competition along with a second school in the middle of the summer to build comfort level on higher speed tracks like Mosport International Raceway.
* Generous lapping time during events giving you a chance to practice and improve on your skills or ride along with experienced racers.
* Price of admission accounts for hired marshals and organizers, you can spend your off time tuning or reviewing data.



What are the typical costs and what do I need get involved?

* First you need a car in good mechanical condition. (~$500 to $1,000,000)
* An up to date Snell rated helmet (loaners are not generally provided) (~$200+)
* Membership to an affiliated automotive club for a nominal annual fee, see the CASC Club List (~$25-$50)
* A CASC-OR Class C license (No testing required, ~$60) – Link to licence


Car Classification System

* At OTA, we have developed a linear classification system that classifies every car based on its factory performance and modifications that have been made. Drivers compete against vehicles with similar performance capabilities to their own. (Rule Book)
* To see which class your car falls into, click here. If your car is not listed, the Car Classification Committee (CCC) will add it to the database upon request.
* Many competitors use their street cars.

Hi There!

I guess when the website changed over, a lot of the links went dead. Where can I apply for the Regional C licence? Tried cruising the CASC-OR website, can't find it.

What do i need to do to get the "Class C license"? I have lots of track experience , but never at a competitive level. Do I need to attend the school, I know there is no testing. Or do I just pay the $60?

School is not mandatory but is highly recommended. As a novice though you will need to be signed off by one of the certified OTA instructors.

The licence is $65 (includes HST) and can be purchased online through the CASC-OR website.

Or if you are a newbie to Time-Attack (previously known as SoloSprint) you will be able to buy a class C licence and club membership in any of the 5 participating clubs at the Open House for $100.

The 5 clubs are OMSC (Oshawa Motorsport club) TAC (Toronto Autosport Club), HADA (Honda and Acura Drivers Association), MCO (Motorsport Club of Ottawa) and SPDA-online (? Sports and Performance Drivers Association ???)

Please note this is only open to folks new to CASC sanctioned time trials and not to experienced competitors.

Other than the school, where can I get signed off by one of the certified OTA instructors?

During the morning lapping sessions at any of the events.

Well the car I'm planning on running doesn't and cannot accommodate a passenger. Will that be a problem getting signed off?

I think I know the answer to this...
If I already have a regional "A" license...do I need to apply for the "C".

if you have a CASC approved race licence in good standing then no, you do not need a class C

Hi,

I would like to volunteer at this next event. Who do I have to see in order to let them know if I can?
