What's 86CUP?


86CUP is the premier, independently organized, FRS/BRZ Time Trial series in North America. Utilizing a ruleset that is specific to the platforms, the 86CUP aims to provide a friendly, safe, environment in which 86 enthusiasts can hone their driving skills. Come join us at our events, get a ride, and experience the true capabilities of our platform in its natural environment!

For 2017, we'd like to welcome GT-Radial as the title sponsor for the NorCal 86CUP! GT Radial has been a sponsor for us since the beginning, but this year, they're upping the ante and generously giving away cash prizes for the podium winners of the Stock and Street classes in addition to the tire Contingency program. See below for details! Returning this year to continue supporting our series are Winmax, CounterSpace Garage, Elite Performance, and 86drive. Each have been instrumental in the past to help build the NorCal 86CUP series to what it is today, and we look forward to working with these sponsors again this year!

Please visit this page for rules and additional details: https://www.86cup.us/gtradial/

This season, we will be running most of our events with NCRC, SpeedSF, and Speed Ventures. These organizations have been hosting safe events for us in the past, and expect nothing different this year. We may also some events with Exclusive Trackdays if it fits in the schedule. They offer private trackdays with limited crowds and lots of track time.

NorCal 86CUP Rules




2017 NorCal 86CUP Rules Addendum

The rules listed below are specific to NorCal 86CUP and override any rules that may conflict with the rules published in the official rule set.

  • Mod points are slightly tweaked. Please see the NorCal 86CUP Class Calculator for details.
  • There is now a Super Mod class for points ranging from 7 to 11. Unlimited class now starts at 11+ points.
  • If a driver modifies his/her car mid-season and moves up or down a class, the points earned in the previous class will be carried over to the new class, with a -25% penalty. Note that drivers participating in the GT Radial Championship Prize challenge cannot change classes.
  • Prior to your first event of the season, you may declare to run in a higher class than your mod points would normally dictate. Note that you may be running at a disadvantage in the higher class until you have your planned mods.
  • Scores for best 9 finishes out of 13 events will count toward the championship for each class.
  • Only official track transponder timing, AiM Solo DL (or other datalogger + GPS systems), or Harry's Lap Timer with external GPS timing is accepted. When determining rank, lap times recorded with AiM Solo DL (or other datalogger + GPS systems) are subject to a 0.1 second penalty, and lap times recorderd with Harry's Lap Timer are subject to a 1 second penalty
