2021 Chesapeake Region Autocross #3

Prince George's Stadium (Bowie)

About this event


 

Autocross is a sport of navigating your car through a defined course of pylons (usually on a large parking lot) faster than your competition. Autocross courses are set up using soft orange traffic pylons which will not damage your car, but they do melt! Events are run at speeds typically between 25-50 MPH, usually in 2nd gear. Autocross is a "performance driving event" and a safe way to learn how to drive your car at its limit. You not only learn how to handle your car at speeds that you drive daily, but you also:

  • Gain confidence in your driving ability
  • Learn the limits of your car's brakes
  • Learn correct seating, hand, and feet positions
  • Learn the limits of your car's tire adhesion

Finally, Autocross is a social gathering of new and old friends and LOTS OF FUN!

Event requirements

Participants must be 18 years of age or older and have a valid driver’s license, but our JPP (Junior Participation Program) allows any 16-18 year old child/grandchild of an active (in good standing) PCA member to participate in autocross events providing they have a valid license (this means their license allows them to drive on the street by themselves).  The parent or grandparent has to be present at the autocross, and must complete a "Parental Consent, Release and Waiver of Liability" form.  The minor participant must complete a "Minor's Assumption of Risk Acknowledgement" form.   All participants must complete a “Waiver and Release of Liability" form (signed on site if spectating and not attending, Speedwaiver signatures are accepted for registrants). Copies of these forms can be found below:

Each driver must wear an "M" or "SA" rated helmet carrying a 2005 or later Snell Memorial Foundation approval sticker.  For those purchasing a new helmet, an "SA" rated helmet is strongly recommended, but an "M" rated helmet is acceptable. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, loaner helmets and head socks will not be available.
