Melt! Snow Melt! Test & Tune & Points Event #1

Alaska Raceway Park

About this event

The Arctic Alaska Region, of the Sports Car Club of America, will be sanctioning a Test & Tune on April 20, 2024 followed by Points Event #1 on April 21, 2024.  It’s been a long winter snowy winter, and to get back into the grove of Autocross join us for Saturday's Test & Tune! Sunday will be our timed driving competition through a course laid out with pylons (traffic cones) giving each entrant as many runs each day that we can fit in, for their best scored time! Come join your fellow Alaskan driving enthusiasts for a year of fun with cars!

On Saturday, all participants will need to come by the Registration Table upon arrival. On Sunday all competitors will need to come by the Registration Table upon arrival. 
You will then prepare your car for tech inspection (self tech with guidance).  


Please arrive early to allow time to settle your gear, prepare your car, and get through Tech Inspection. Remember, all loose items will need to be out of your car and your battery will need to be solidly secured—no bungee cords!


Our Driver's Meeting will include a brief talk by the Safety Steward and the Solo Team will cover the responsibilities each of you will have while working corners during your "work group"! This event is a go—rain or shine—and as you'll be working opposite your "run group" please bring hats, layers for body warmth, sunblock, and foot wear for the elements.


Water will be provided by the Region, and we plan on grilling hot dogs for lunch on both days.

CLASSES, CAR PREPARATION AND MODIFICATIONS
The Region utilizes the 2023 SCCA National Solo Rules classifications.

This Regional event will have three Classes: Novice for those new to the sport, Open is our intermediate class for those Region competitors looking for fun with some competition, and Expert which is the "Deep End of The Pool," with very stiff competition. 

All of these classes are explained in the 2024 Autocross Supplemental Rules and can be found on the Region Website at www.alaskascca.org/events .

Each student will be required self tech (supervised) their vehicle immediately following Registration. Vehicles shall have mufflers, working seatbelts, and NO leaking fluids, in addition to the other items on the Tech Sheet.

Region will be enforcing a sound limit rule to ensure that we are able to continue to enjoy our sport.  The details are outlined in Appendix I of the 2024 National Rules.  Basically, sound level readings may be taken at a location on the edge of the courses and competitors who exceed the maximum sound level will be given the opportunity to make repairs to meet the acceptable sound level.  If on subsequent runs the competitor does not meet the acceptable level, they will not be allowed to continue to compete.
