CVR PCA AutoX 5 (Lime Rock Park B-Paddock)

Lime Rock Park

About this event

Join us for the CVR PCA AutoX! 


Autocross is an exciting form of motorsport held at typical street and highway speeds. It emphasizes precise car control in a low-cost, friendly and safe competition that is very gentle on your car. Learn and rapidly refine advanced driving skills and techniques in the non-threatening and safe environment of a course marked by traffic cones in a large parking lot. Through the included AutoX-University lessons, you are encouraged and coached by advanced driving instructors about the basics and the fine points of driving to the edge of your and your car's limits. Each Autocross course is designed to optimize the featured AutoX-U driving skills taught that day so that you learn Better Driving...Faster! Enjoy your car's handling like nowhere else and discover the fun and camaraderie of CVR autocross events. It is recommended to drive autocross before your first Drivers Education event since the skills are directly transferable. 

CVR PCA AutoX is open to all Porsche Club of America members. Non-PCA member drivers must be an invited guest of a PCA member driving at the event. PCA members are allowed to invite up to two non-members per event.

Online Registration Fees:
Members $40
Non-Members $45

Due to Covid, no walk-up registrations will be allowed.

New Covid Procedures:

Safety of our members, friends and the community is our highest priority. We will respectfully be following all of the latest covid guidelines to make sure this event remains fun for all. Everyone is asked to respect these new safety measures. We all need to do our part:

  • Bring your own mask, hand sanitizer, gloves, pen, garbage bag, and use them. Don't forget the usual things like your own water, food, sun-screen, chair.
  • Thoughtfully use your sanitizer and gloves for your work shift (flag handles, timing/scoring areas, pylons, etc.). While virus transmittal risk from sun baked items may be low, please be respectfully cautious.
  • The main tent will be roped off to maintain distance for the timing and scoring people. Bring your own shade if desired (properly weighted tent, umbrella, big hat?).
  • NEW: Pre-registration on Motorsport.reg.com is required! No walk-up registration will be allowed. 
  • Due to Covid, you may cancel at any time, including that morning, with a full refund or credit. Please do so as soon as you can so that we can re-plan the schedule without you.
  • Use "Air fist pumps" and "Air-Fives" instead of handshakes.
  • Limited loaner helmets will be exclusively reserved on a first come basis by emailing Paul Kudra autocross@cvrpca.org. It is preferred that you order your own Snell 2010, 2015, or 2020 helmet on-line. Buy the latest Snell rated helmet you can so it remains valid the longest.  The Snell “SA” (Special Application) rating is preferred since it is for car motorsports. 
  • Instruction will be done out-of-car, except for rare same-household Instructor/student situations.

Each AutoX will stand on its own. No AutoX Championship or Hoffman Cup Run-Off will be held in 2020. Please thank Hoffman Porsche as you can this year with service or purchases to show our gratitude for their long term support of CVR.

Event requirements

This Sept. 11, 2021 AutoX event is held at Lime Rock Park's large "B Paddock" ( next to Lime Rock track's "Downhill" turn). This event is completely sepparate from CVR's Driver's Education (DE) track event held that same day. Based on experience, it is NOT recommended to try to run both the DE and the AutoX events together. AutoX is a full day of Porsche Motorsport that requires your full focus. DE also requires your full focus and diluting that is not a good idea even for experienced drivers. If you have driven at least one CVR AutoX and never tried a CVR DE, then please give the DE a try. If you have never tried either, then please try the AutoX first as a foundational driving experience that will enhance your first DE event in the future.

CVR AutoX is run with an emphasis on event safety. Full details can be found in the AutoX rules.

AutoX and Novice Info:
CVR AutoX events emphasize learning Better Driving...Faster! Events are designed so that drivers with all levels of experience feel welcomed, enjoy the day, and go home a better, safer driver.
