ARPCA Consol Energy Park - Autocross

Consol Energy Park

About this event

Come Autocross with us at Consol Energy Park in Washington PA!

This is the Last ARPCA autocross for the season.     

Autocross (AX) will give you the opportunity to test yourself and develop your own skill set, as well as learn the limits of your vehicle in a safe and controlled environment. All events are based around a course made of traffic cones and each lap timed for each driver. AX seldom exceeds speeds of 60 mph and has no “wheel to wheel” competition.

AX is a great entry-level competitive driving event that requires little car prep, time or money. Beginners are welcome and there are no pre-requisites other than a vehicle in safe working condition.  Before each event begins there is a guided Course Walk that takes you step by step through the driving line and explains how to navigate through the cones. This is especially helpful for first-timers and those that want a second perspective.

While the size of the field will determine the number of runs which occur last year we averaged 4 - 6 runs in both the morning and afternoon.

  • Sunday, May 26th at Pitt Race.  (Note - this event is managed by Steel Cities Region SCCA)

Car Classification:

During registration you will be asked to select car category and class your car best fits.  There are four categories of classes for Porsches – Showroom Stock, Production, Improved and Modified. Categories are related to automobile configuration. There is a separate category for all non-Porsche vehicles.

  • Showroom Stock (S) category contains classes of automobiles as normally delivered and specified for use in the United States and Canada. Factory options as normally available for a specific model year are permitted. Certain factory and/or dealer installed equipment/ options will move an automobile out of S and into Production or higher so as to maintain the intent and integrity of the Showroom Stock classes.  Choose this class if your car has no modifications.
