Important information for signing-up (read and heed this carefully before registration opens if you really would like to attend)
- Due to very high expected demand, completing the online registration process DOES NOT mean you are Confirmed to attend the event.
- To sign-up correctly, thoroughly read this information page and the next, follow all instructions (many of which need to be completed before registration opens), then carefully fill out the registration form on the third page
- If you are Waitlisted, we do expect movement in the Waitlist as cancellations may occur
To register online for the Driver's Education sessions we require that you join our group here on MotorsportReg.com. Regardless of which region of PCA you belong to or if you don't belong to PCA at all, you must join the PCA - Zone 8 CFOS group on this web site (note: this just means adding PCA - Zone 8 CFOS to your list of Clubs on MotorsportReg; it does not make you a member of PCA). This will be done as a step in the registration process. Non-Porsches that meet our rules are welcome!!!
DE REGISTRATION PRIORITY: Registrations are taken first-come, first-served WHEN COMPLETE (see next page for details, but please keep reading this page). Students that require an Instructor may be Waitlisted until an Instructor becomes available for them. Credentialed drivers that wish to have an Instructor assist them are prioritized only after all Students that require an Instructor are accommodated. When you initially register your status will be New, which simply means you attempted to register, but you have not been accepted into the event. It is your responsibility to check back within 3 weeks to determine your true status (e.g., Confirmed, Waitlisted, On Hold, etc.). You may view your status by returning to MotorsportReg and checking your Dashboard.
