Porsche Club of America – Zone 8 welcomes you!
The 15th Annual California Festival of Speed comes to Auto Club Speedway April 8, 9, and 10, 2016 This registration site is for Time Trial registration only. The Time Trial this year welcomes back POC participation for points alongside PCA, and features timed practice sessions on the roval all three days, with "qualifying-style" official timed runs on Sunday afternoon. There is a single base price to drive in this three-day mega-event ($395, plus any other fees discussed below). You may run one, two, or all three days for that price, so long as you attend the mandatory Drivers Meetings on the days you wish to drive. There will be 3 Time Trial run groups, including a group with Expanded Passing on the entire course.
This event also features a Club Race. Complete registration for the Club Race, including Time Trial Timed Runs (with no practice sessions) for Club Racers only, is at a different site: http://www.ClubRegistration.net. If you aren't sure of the difference between a Time Trial and a Club Race, please contact the Registrar prior to signing up so we can help you register for the proper event on the proper system.
To register online for the Time Trial practice sessions and Timed Runs we require that you join our group here on MotorsportReg.com. Regardless of which region of PCA you belong to or if you don't belong to PCA at all, you must join the PCA - Zone 8 CFOS group on this web site (note: this just means adding PCA - Zone 8 CFOS to your list of Clubs on MotorsportReg; it does not make you a member of PCA). This will be done as a step in the registration process. Non-Porsches that meet our rules are welcome!!!
TIME TRIAL REGISTRATION PRIORITY: Registrations are taken first-come, first-served WHEN COMPLETE (see next page for details). Students that require an Instructor may be Waitlisted until an Instructor becomes available for them. Credentialed drivers that wish to have an Instructor assist them are prioritized only after all Students that require an Instructor are accommodated. When you initially register your status will be New, which simply means you attempted to register, but you have not been accepted into the event. It is your responsibility to check back within 2 weeks to determine your true status (e.g., Confirmed, Waitlisted, On Hold, etc.). You may view your status by returning to this page and clicking on the "View current entry list" link at the top of the box to the right.
PCA and POC competition points: When registering, drivers will select whether they wish their participation and lap times to count towards the annual competitions for PCA, POC, or both (additional $50 fee for both). POC drivers running a Porsche and wanting points only for POC must nevertheless classify their car on the PCA Zone 8 classification website and tech on the PCA form (see following page), but will be placed in PCA X Class for the event in order to steer clear of PCA competition classes. These POC drivers will receive credit with POC in their appropriate POC class after the event concludes.
Physical Damage Insurance: Insurance for your car is available for this event via Lockton Affinity, LLC, PCA's exclusively endorsed insurance provider. Note that liability coverage is not included and Time Trial Timed Runs are specifically excluded from coverage. Check the policy details before you purchase to ensure it provides the coverage you want. This insurance is strictly optional. For more info click here.
Event Hotel: The event hotel this year is the Radisson Ontario Airport Hotel, 2200 E Holt Blvd, Ontario, CA 91761, 800-333-3333 or click here. The Porsche Club Festival of Speed Rate (code PSHSPD) is $79/night plus tax. Call the hotel directly using the above number. This rate is not available on ANY other website or via ANY other phone number other than what is shown immediately above; the travelnow.com or Expedia links to the right DO NOT offer these rates.
Camping at the Track: You may camp at the track. The cost is $120 for the weekend and covers 24 hour security/in-out privileges and restrooms with showers, as well as electrical and water hookups. Check the camping option when you register.
Parking: We are assigning parking for garages, big rig parking and large group (>5 cars) parking. If you have one of these, let us know when you register. Garage allocations will be made in March and the rental of a single bay for 1 car for the weekend is $175. Garage availability will be first-come, first-served based upon the timestamp of all registrations for both the Time Trial and Club Race. An appropriate adjustment will be made to fairly compensate for the fact that Club Race registration opens earlier than Time Trial registration. All TT drivers signing up after February 28 who request a garage will be waitlisted for a garage until final allocations are made.
Fuel: Various grades of fuel will be available at the track, some by advanced order. Look for an e-mail regarding fuel after you've registered, sometime in March.
Food: The track's concession stands will be NOT open. Instead, we will have a "food truck food court" throughout the weekend from morning until sometime after the track goes cold.
Drones: Strictly prohibited. Please leave them at home.
Lap Times and Event Info on your Mobile Phone: You may sign up for our mobile phone timing and notification system as part of your registration for this event. For a Standard subscription (lap times for your car, notifications of postings for your run group, and important announcements), simply check the box that says you do not want a Custom subscription.
Shirts: An event commemorative T-shirt as well as embroidered men's and women's Polo shirts are available for purchase ($5-$30) if ordered on or before March 18.
Payment: You must use a credit card to pay and registration is exclusively online at this site. VISA, MasterCard or Discover only. For complete event pricing details proceed with registration steps. You will have a chance to confirm after you make your selections. Note that late fees apply beginning March 26 and VERY significant last minute fees apply beginning April 2. Cards charged once you have been accepted into the event and all of the items you have requested to purchase have been resolved.
