Is a Title Required for a Track Day Car

Post by fiatmac » Wed Sep 23, 2015 9:40 pm

I have a lead on a former SCCA 124 Spider Race car that I am considering
purchasing for a track day car. Do tracks require you to have a title for a car
that is only run on the track? I have only participated in track days with my
street car and don't recall that I ever had to produce a registration card. Just
wondering if any documentation is required for an unlicensed car.

The title for this car was apparently lost 3 owners ago and the current owner
has had no luck in finding the last known title owner.

Nope. Don't need one. Title is only required to register the vehical for use
on the street.

They might require insurance though, and so it may depend on your insurance
carrier's requirements.

Interesting point , Greg. In 18 years of racing and open track days, the only
time I have seen a reference to insurance has been for some driver's schools.
It probably depends from event to event who is putting it on and their
specific requirements. I can certainly vouch that a title or registration is
not needed. I would go with Greg's rec and read the event's info carefully as
to any insurance requirements.

Every track day I have attended has required a current valid driver's license,
and some required health insurance info.

Agree with the others, probably depends on what organization runs the track
day. I have only run at Summit Point and all my cars were titled and tagged
but there were race cars being used and I don't recall anyone asking for proof
of title.
