About this event

This is the Atlanta Region's sixth Points event for the 2020 Autocross season.  Hooray!  

In response to the COVID-19 situation, this event may be somewhat different than ones you have attended in the past.

We do "split days" in Atlanta.  Classes will be placed into morning or afternoon sessions. Attempts will be made to keep the same classes running together throughout the season.  However, classes may shift between heats as necessary to ensure proper worker coverage.

The Rookie Class is a new program for newer drivers (typically with less than a year of experience) looking to compete with other drivers in an indexed class, but without jumping into the deep end of Pro.

Event requirements

PLEASE READ THIS ENTIRE SECTION.

Notice to Participants: In light of the current COVID-19 situation, every attempt will be made to minimize the risks of exposure to the virus. New processes and procedures are being developed and will be put into place for events going forward.

Ultimately, it is your responsibility to assess the risk to you, both on-track and off, and to make the decision on whether or not to participate. If you are feeling unwell or are experiencing symptoms such as fever, cough, or shortness of breath please stay home. If you have been in contact with someone who has been experiencing these symptoms in the last two weeks, please stay home.

While on site please take the health and safety of your fellow participants, volunteers and staff into consideration and practice social distancing, wear a mask, and wash your hands and/or use hand sanitizer frequently.

If you are diagnosed with COVID-19 within two (2) weeks of attending an SCCA event, we ask that you notify the event Registrar immediately. 

In response to the COVID-19 situation, this event will be somewhat different than our typical event.  Please keep in mind:

  • Some of our members are in high-risk categories. Others may have at-risk family members at home. Do your best to keep them safe.
  • Respect your fellow members. Your opinions about current guidelines are not shared by everyone. Behave accordingly, and keep it about the racing - that’s why we’re here.
  • COVID-19 is not the only risk to our events. Government officials have the power to end current and future events, or require monitoring by law enforcement and the health department.  Atlanta Motor Speedway can also shut down our events if they believe that we are not behaving appropriately.

Pre-Registration is required for our events. Registration fees are $45 for card-carrying SCCA members and $60 for non-members.  For non-members, your entry includes a $15 weekend membership fee. If you decide to become a member (and save $15 for every future event), you may apply that $15 towards the purchase of an SCCA membership (normally $90 - you can go to www.scca.com/join to sign-up now and save).

If you will be registering as an SCCA member, MotorsportReg will verify your SCCA membership as you complete the registration process. If you are a current member and get a message telling you that your membership is invalid or expired, make sure the name on your SCCA membership card matches the name on your MSR account exactly. Also make sure your SCCA number has been entered correctly in your MSR account - including any underscores that are a part of your number.

We will determine class heats and work assignments ahead of time.  Accordingly, registration will closes at midnight two days before the event.  We will not have on-site registration on the day of the event.    

If you want to bring a non-participant with you, you MUST have them register online.  Non-Participants do not pay registration fees, but still MUST pre-register online.

No one who is unregistered will be allowed through the checkin gate.  

Please bring a face mask or covering, hand sanitizer, and any other Personal Protective Equipment you believe to be appropriate (e.g. gloves).  Please also bring your own water and a pen or two.

The following additional restrictions are not just for your own safety, but also the safety of everyone on-site.   They also demonstrate our commitment to safety to both Atlanta Motor Speedway and local government, helping to ensure we can continue to have autocross events going forward.  Last, they help show everyone that amateur motorsport in Atlanta can be done both safely and responsibly. 

Additional Restrictions and Guidelines in place for this event:

  1. Face masks or coverings are required to be worn whenever you are less than six feet from another individual, with the following exceptions:
  • When in your vehicle or trailer
