Autocross School and Autocross (Teststrecke 40)


Chuck Jennings: Autocross School Instructor



The California Central Coast Region of The Porsche Club of America (CCCR-PCA) is holding an Autocross School on Saturday, February 22, 2020.  Entry will be limited to 30 students. The Ground School will begin at 8:00 a.m. at the Santa Maria Airport Administration Office, which is located on 3217 Terminal Dr., Santa Maria, CA 93455. Parking in rear of building.

The agenda for the day begins with a sit-down instruction session for about 90 minutes to discuss the basics of autocross.  We then will proceed to the Santa Maria Airport autocross track where we will conduct tech inspection. After tech inspection we will have three driving exercises:  Braking, Slalom, and a Skid Pad Exercise. You will be assigned to a group for these exercises. Each driver will run the exercises several times.  All participants will be assigned a driving instructor for the day. After completion of the 3 exercises, we will set up the track and take a few runs with your instructor.

Again, sign-up early as we expect the Autocross School will fill up fast! It is limited to the first 30 students.

The regular autocross, Teststrecke 40, will be on Sunday, February 23rd, 2020

Registration for the Autocross School only is $60 for PCA Members and $70 for Non-PCA Members.

Registration for the Autocross School and the Autocross (both events) is $120 for PCA Members and $140 for Non-PCA Members.

Everyone may register for one or both events beginning on January 11, 2020 beginning at 10:00 a.m. 

The autocross on Sunday will be limited to 60 participants. 


If the event is full, you will be put on a waitlist and you will not be charged until you accept an opening. If an opening occurs, all people on the waitlist will be notified that there is an opening. From that point on, it will be first-come, first-served for filling the vacancy, so if you want in, make sure you monitor your emails.


What is Autocross? 

An autocross is an all forward gear competitive driving event in which one vehicle at a time is timed for one or more laps on a clearly defined closed course on a hard surface with a defined start and finish line. An autocross is run in lower gears (typically 2nd) with an emphasis on handling and agility rather than speed and power. An autocross is not wheel-to-wheel racing, a time trial or a gymkhana. More than one vehicle can be on the course at the same time as long as vehicles do not run in proximity to each other and workers are not put at risk. There can be official timing of each lap with appropriate penalties for course deviations and awards can be given for finishing positions in class and/or overall.

Airport Entry

  • Our agreement with the airport does not allow us to enter the track or leave the track from the Jet Center. The only entry/exit is the gate on S. Blosser, south of the Jet Center. If you are late, you can try calling someone with a TSA badge, but we will be busy and may not hear your call right away.
    • If you ignore this, you may be asked to leave the airport and may not be allowed to return to this or future events. Translation: If you use the Jet Center to enter, you will be escorted out the Blosser gate. I hope I am making this clear. NO EXCEPTIONS!


Junior Participant Program (JPP)

The Junior Participation Program (JPP) is intended to encourage families to become and stay more involved with PCA, as well as strengthening a long-term connection between 16/17-year old sons, daughters and other specified relations of PCA members and to encourage their future participation in the Club. Once these sons, daughters or other relatives become 18, they will be able to join PCA as a full member.

The JPP allows the fully licensed sons, daughters, nephews, nieces, step-children or grandchildren of PCA members to participate in driving events, such as autocross, autocross schools, rally and gymkhanas.

The parent or legal guardian of the JPP entrant does not have to be a Club member, IF the uncle, aunt, grandparent or step-parent is a Club member. This relative, who is a Club member, as well as a parent or legal guardian, must also be in attendance at the event, along with the JPP entrant.

BOTH parents or legal guardian(s) must be present at the event to sign the “Waiver and Release of Liability and Indemnity Agreement for Minors in Restricted Areas, Driving or Riding”. If both parents will not be present at the event, a notarized waiver of the parent not in attendance must be provided. The JPP entrant must sign the “Minor’s Assumption of Risk Acknowledgment” form. Contact Warren White with any questions.

Minors and Spectators

Spectators or minors are generally not allowed at the airport autocross facility. If you have someone, over 18 years of age, that you wish to accompany you, they must sign up on MSR as a volunteer worker and be assigned a work station. This must be done before the close of registration. Do not show up at the gate and expect to get in without signing up like everyone else. NO EXCEPTIONS!

However, minors 16 years of age and younger may attend an autocross event as observers only, if the following conditions are met:

  1. Both parents should sign the "Waiver and Release of Liability and Indemnity Agreement for Minors as Observers Only"; however, one parent /guardian is acceptable. Friends/other relatives are not acceptable.
  2. Minors cannot be admitted to any "hot" or "restricted areas". This means the only area they are allowed in is the area of vehicle parking. Not grid, not near the track and no other place on the airport property, and they must wear an appropriate wrist band at all times.
  3. The minor must be under the supervision of a parent or guardian at all times. If a minor is found to be not under direct supervision, you will be asked to leave. NO EXCUSES - NO EXCEPTIONS - PERIOD

Rental Helmets

Shared-Use Helmet Fee/Day is $5. This means that if you rent one of our helmets, you must return it after your run so another person can use it.


We plan to have food and drinks available for purchase at the track on both days.
