Welcome to BCA/WMC at Oregon Raceway Park!

Due to the current situation, our drivers meeting will be done online. 

IT IS IMPERATIVE THAT YOU READ THIS CAREFULLY AND COMPLETE IT. 

This event will have many differences from a typical event, not only due to the current Coronavirus situation, but because of the difference in venue.

BATHROOMS ARE ON SITE, WASH YOUR HANDS OFTEN, AND WASH THEM WELL

SOME BASICS:

  • You will all sign in upon entry to ORP and turn in your Covid Questionnaires - you will ALSO get a BCA/WMC wristband. 
    • You MUST have a wristband and have signed the e-waiver here: https://bcautosports.speedwaiver.com/ 
  • Tech inspection will be done on site - unless you have annual tech for WMC, BCA, ORPCA, or SCCA. Please be timely in getting tech inspection done
  • Please have respect for the event and the people around you. Not everyone will want to shake hands or socialize. Some people are at high risk, and some have people that are high risk in their lives. Please respect everyones decisions on distancing - its not likely that they have something against you. Though they might, and this is a great time to use social distancing as an excuse to avoid those people.
  • You get out of autocross what you put into it. Please look out for ways to help. The more people that volunteer, the smoother the event goes and the more runs you get in a safer environment.

SAFETY:

  • Safety is # 1
  • This is a Car Control Event, not a drift event. Due to the length of the course, it is vital that you do your best to keep under control. We will have up to FOUR cars on course at a time, and any spinout or "off" will result in significant delays. Offenders will be warned once, repeat offenders will lose their remaining runs.
  • Safety is # 1
  • There is some inherent risk involved with this sport. Due to the width of the track, there is a bit of added danger. Cones will line the outside entry, inside apex, and outside exit of corners ON the curbing. This will give visible boundaries inherent to autocross, and eliminate the urge to push the curbs and potentially drop tires. This will help mitigate danger and a spin factor
  • Spinning out is a bigger issue in this event than in any other event. The rate at which cars are approaching you from behind, the lack of run out room if you go off track, the danger of sliding sideways into sand are all factors that make this more dangerous. Please do your best to stay under the limits and under control.
  • To illustrate the point for new people, Raise your hand if you have seen *many virtual hands raised, I promise*
    • Cars do 180’s and 360’s suddenly... at speed… in the rain AND dry
    • Driver get lost and drive the wrong way on the course
    • Vehicles hit a concrete barrier
    • A car slide off the course into a solid object coming out of the ground
    • A car going sideways through the finish and taking out the timing lights and hitting 20 cones...
    • A car have come to a complete stop to not hit a corner worker running to get a cone
    • Corner workers scatter as a car comes hurtling toward them out of control
    • Random cars drive onto the course while the course is hot
    • Spectators walk onto the course
    • Kids on bicycles
    • Skydivers (okay that one is site specific)
  • At every BCA/WMC event, the finish line and shut down area is an area designated to stop a vehicle, and keep it slowed down to travel through the pit/staging areas
  • Safety is # 1
  • Your car MUST come to a stop before entering the pit/staging/return area.
    • If you/your vehicle cannot stop in the amount of space designated, you probably have a mechanical problem and should be removed from the Grid until the mechanical problem is corrected. We will have tested the slow down area to ensure that there is sufficient distance to stop safely.
  • It is everyone’s responsibility to ensure everyone is safe. NO EXCEPTIONS

Stay alert!

Safety is everyone's responsibility. If you see something that does not look safe, say something. Find someone with a lanyard or find someone with a radio if it’s an emergency!

CORNER WORKERS:

  • You are the first line of defense for the driver and your corner worker team!
  • Never turn your back on a car. Make sure your team is not turning their backs on cars either!
  • If you don’t think that you can get to a cone and safely out of the way, DON'T TRY!!! It’s not worth it!
  • Be aware that there will be up to FOUR cars on the course at any given time. If one car has gone by, another will be coming shortly.
  • Split up and spread out.
  • Know the area that you are covering:
    • Try to memorize how the cones are laid out when you first get to your corner so it is easier to remember where they were before being drug away. If a cone is stuck under a car, don't run out to fix the missing cone without grabbing a spare! Watch to see if the cone comes out from under the car before disappearing into the distance.
    • Watch out for the other corner workers. They may be "in the zone" and run out onto the course when it is not safe.
