Event requirements

Prior Experience:  Time Trial participants without a PCA Zone 8 Solo Permit or Club Racing License, or a POC Time Trial or Cup Race License (or approved equivalent) must have completed at least 8 Autocross and/or DE and/or Driving School days or equivalent over the past 24 months, will be considered a Student, and will be issued a Zone 8 Student Log Book ($10).  POC Time Trial or Cup Race License holders will be reciprocally granted a PCA Zone 8 Solo Permit ($10) at the time they register online (please check the Zone 8 Documentation option – no action with respect to licensing need be taken by licensed POC drivers prior to registering).  Drivers who have not driven at prior Festivals or at any prior PCA-SDR driving events please e-mail a list of your past performance driving events covering a 2 year period, with dates, type of event, and name of sponsoring organization to the Registrar at  All drivers with a Zone 8 Student Log Book will be required to have an Instructor.

You must classify your car using the 2013 Zone 8 Rules before you go on to register for this event.  Fortunately there's an online tool to help you do that.  Go to now and enter info about your car.  You need to do this BEFORE you click Continue below and begin to register as you are required to input your class as part of the registration process.  All cars need to do this, including X class cars, as safety equipment requirements are determined based upon Performance Equipment points which are calculated as part of the online tool.  The ability for the online tool to calculate Performance Equipment points for non-Porsches is still under development.  Cars running in X class may use this spreadsheet to determine Performance Equipment Points: if you had previously determined and entered your class in 2012 and have made no changes to your car you must revisit the above website and click through the edit process in order for the tool to recalculate properly.  Note the resulting point totals and class and enter them when you register.  If you register without doing the above your registration will not be considered complete and you will be placed On Hold.  If you do not complete the above until after a price increase has occurred you will be required to pay the higher price.

Pre-tech is Strongly Encouraged!  Please try to take your car in for service and have it thoroughly inspected between March 20 and April 2 and after your last event prior to the Festival.  With three days at this world-class facility, you will want to be safe and have your car make it through the long weekend.  Plus you'll want to be certain that, before you leave for the track, you and your car have any required safety equipment (Stock and Street Stock coupes generally need no additional safety equipment, but see the Rules link below to be sure that your car qualifies).  All entrants pre-teching must present a Festival Tech Inspection Form with name, address, phone, car, Zone 8 class, Performance Equipment points, etc. to a qualified tech inspection shop.  The form can be found at:  http://www.CalFestival.orgYou must use the special 2013 Festival of Speed Tech Inspection Form and you must fill in all info about yourself and your car class prior to inspection.  Please download the form using the link above.  Do not use any other form as it will not be accepted and you will need to re-tech at the track.  At the same site are instructions for having a tech fill out their portion of the form.  Be sure to provide these instructions to your tech.  Incorrectly filled out forms will require reinspection at the track.  Once you have completed pre-tech, fax page 1 only of your tech form to 619-287-6591 (no cover please) and bring the original with you to the track when you register on-site (put it in your glove box when complete so you don't forget it).  Cars inspected by shops not personally known to the Registrar are subject to random on-site re-inspection.
