CAL CLUB Autocross-Champ Day/Practice June 2023

Storm Stadium - Lake Elsinore

About this event


We're back!  Cal Club SCCA Autocross is excited to announce we'll be continuing our 2023 season on June 25th with a single day event at Storm Stadium in Lake Elsinore, CA.  

We will be running our typical Champ Day Autocross Event format in the morning. After lunch, we'll shake things up by flipping the course, presenting a fresh challenge for an afternoon test-n-tune/practice session. You can sign up for either the Champ Day competition, the afternoon practice session, or both (with a discounted price for participating in both).

Autocross, aka Solo, is a timed competition that challenges drivers to a course marked by cones laid out on an asphalt parking lot or a concrete aircraft runway. Safety is emphasized because cars enter the course one at a time and are spaced out to minimize risks to competitors and event workers. A key emphasis is placed on handling and car control, which breeds some of the most intense competition down to the hundredth or thousandth of a second! Learn more about us at

Cal Club Autocross is sanctioned by the Sports Car Club of America (SCCA). The event open to all SCCA members. If you’re not an SCCA member, do not worry. During the online registration process, you can buy a weekend membership (and that fee can be applied towards an annual membership should you decide to join later!).

How and What to Register For

You may register online for a discounted fee, or you may register on-site at the event for a higher fee. For the Champ Day segment, you can register in a class based upon your car and modifications, or you can register to run Time Only (if you register TO, you will not be able to choose when you run/work). A work assignment is required. 

An extra set of 4 runs (called X-runs) may be available on-site for $30 (no additional work is required when you purchase X-runs). Your normal runs (in class or Time Only) must be purchased and completed prior to taking X-runs. X-Runs may be taken in the same group as your normal runs, but the group you take your X-runs in is based on first come-first serve during check-in at the event.  

Sunday Afternoon Test-n-Tune/Practice

The purpose of this session is for drivers to test and tune setup changes, build seat time, and of course have fun! We will be flipping the course from the morning competition so our afternoon session will be a completely different challenge.  Course walks will be allowed while we're flipping the course. There will be timing, but the times are not audited or posted online like they would be for Champ Day competitions (but you will get time slips). We encourage those looking for practice and seat time to attend this session in addition to the Champ Day.  Runs will not be capped for the afternoon sessions.  Run/Work groups will be assigned designated time slots and will be allowed to run as many laps as they can get in during the session.

Practice entries may be capped depending upon Champ Day turnout.

Annual Number holders receive early registration email for all events.

Autocross Vehicle Number

Everyone is welcomed to sign up and run on Champ Day! In order to score points towards a year end class Trophy, you must have a current 2023 Annual Number that includes your own permanent car number. To check if a particular car number is available for purchase, check out our Annual Number Listings here. Points cards are available for purchase online here. Cost is $20 for each calendar year. Cards purchased the last three months of any calendar year will also be valid the following calendar year. 

If you do not have a Annual Number, you can absolutely still run in competition but you must register with any open 6xx number on a first come first served basis. If you have already have magnets or vinyl numbers for your vehicle and you'd like to reuse them at our event rather than using blue tape, you can convert your existing number by placing a one "1" and the appropriate number of zeros in front of your existing number to create a four digit 1xxx number. This request can be accommodated at registration check in only. (For example: If you have magnets for number number 98, you may ask to register for number 1098). 

Classing your Car

Classes are based off your car and its modifications. Click here to view the SCCA rule book to determine what class your car should be in. If you don’t know how to class your call, click here and create a new post on our forum thread. Alternatively, we can help you re-class your car on the day of registration if you are unsure.
