About this event
Autocross consists of a one car at a time making runs against the clock on a closed course marked by cones. Each run takes about one minute. Speeds are low to medium, generally below 70 mph and driven in second gear. Time penalties are added for disturbing cones or skipping gates.
Events are open to Porsche drivers, PCA members in non-Porsches, BMW-CCA members, guests of PCA members, and everyone else. PCA members get priority in the event of an over-subscribed event. You do not need to be a PNWR member to compete for points, but points are not assigned in the Time Only Class (non-Porsches and a few drivers not running in the regular classes).
All participants are also volunteers. Unlike some other NW-region autocross event, PCA autocross events are full-day commitments. If you are not driving in a given run group, you are required to fill a 'work assignment' during the runs of your fellow competitors. Do not expect to attend only the morning, or only the afternoon, of the event.
We have established extra safety protocols to minimize risk of COVID-19 infection at our events. We will follow all guidelines laid out by the local jurisdiction at the time. We will also be making the following modifications to how we run an event:
* Any participant who experiences COVID-19 related symptoms less than 2 weeks prior to the event must not attend
* Participants are responsible for their own gloves/masks/etc. Participants are required to wear masks when near other participants, when using radios, when in common spaces (such as registration or the timing shed)
We will restructure the event to minimize exposure in the following ways:
1. All pre-registration and payment will be handled online
2. On-site registration will take place away from the pits (under a cover, near the timing shed)
3. Drivers may observe when their car is 'teched' if desired, but must be 6ft away from the vehicle at the time.
4. Work assignments will be covered before each run group; we will not choose work assignments at registration (to minimize contact at registration)
5. No food concessions will be provided. Participants must bring their own food.
6. Work assignments in the timing shed will be restricted to members of the same household; there will be no 'announcer' work assignment
7. Participants must be 6+ft away from any non-household member during the drivers meeting
8. There will be no loaner helmets offered
9. Participants are strongly encouraged to leave the site as soon as possible after completing their runs/responsibilities; minimal socializing please
10. Masks must be worn whenever a participant may be around others, or when using the radios. Masks are encouraged at all times
11. Common items, such as radios or timing equipment, will be sanitized between run groups
12. Anyone considered to be endangering others, at the discretion of the event chair, will be asked to leave

Due to the high heat on June 26 I am switching the July 10 event from a practice to an alternate scored event. The total number of scored events for the season won't change, but the number of available events is increased by 1. This should minimize the championship consequences of choosing to skip June 26 due to the heat. Make good choices with respect to your health and the weather.
Pre-registration is available online, and will be available on an event-by-event basis two weeks prior to the event date. This gets you into the timing system, allows us to estimate a head count and class breakdown helps expedite onsite registration. Online registration closes at approximately 5 p.m. the evening prior to the event.
For 2018 there was a new registration database. You will need a password to log-in. You may need to re-enter your information. If you have used the https://scorekeeper.wwscc.org website before 2018 then you will need to either register your account again, or reset your account, in order to initially set the password on the account.
All participants are welcome. PCA members, BMW-CCA members, and invited guests of a PCA or BMW-CCA members get priority for registration if an event is over-subscribed. If you have invited a guest to attend, please inform Paul Hagger at email@example.com.
