Autobahn Country Club

About this event




This is the last event of the season! Intermediate and novice drivers: Come drive the Autobahn South Course one more time - or for the first time - before the driving year is over. Plus, it's a Sunday night. No need to take time off from work.

THIS EVENT WILL START ONE HOUR EARLIER THAN USUAL. Check-in begins at 1:45 p.m.; mandatory novice drivers' meeting at 3:30 p.m.; mandatory intermediate and advanced drivers' meeting at 3:45 p.m.; on track at 4:00 p.m.

The Autobahn South Course is a challenging 2.1-mile circuit with 15 turns designed to test your abilities. Drivers are divided into three run groups by experience: novice, intermediate and advanced. Each run group is scheduled to have three 20-minute sessions; the schedule may be adjusted in response to changing conditions.

The fee for SCCA members is $155; for nonmembers, $170. Not a member? You can join now at

Run group assignments are made by SCCA staff after you register. Please include information on your profile about any autocross and non-SCCA track driving experience so you can be assigned to the correct run group. If you are driving with us for the first time and do not supply a driving resume, you will be placed in the novice group.
