NNJR SCCA/PCA Autocross Event #4 - Lot J

MetLife Stadium

About this event

We will be running this event as a joint event with the Northern New Jersey Region Porsche Club.  We will be supporting all PCA classes, and this event will count as a points event for both the Porsche Club and SCCA.  Membership in either club will be accepted.

MEADOWLANDS FORMAT:  we will run 3 heat format, you run one heat work another heat and rest another heat. Your work heat can be changed depending where help is needed. If registration reaches over 150 we will switch to a 4 heat format (work once, run once).  If registration is around 100 we'll run a 4 heat / 2 group format (work twice, run twice). 

The event will be capped at 160 drivers.  After the limit is reached, you will go on the wait list which will allow you to register on site after registration closes, assuming there were last minute cancelations.

Run order and pricing will be announced by e-mail once registration is closed

 

This event will be a joint points event with the Northern New Jersey Region Porsche Club of America.  We'll support all the PCA classes and they'll combine this event into their season points.

The Meadowlands has the right to cancel the event at any time so please check AutoX4u.com.

Event Format:  If we have a typical turnout between 100 and 150 drivers, we will run 3 heat format, you run one heat work another heat and rest another heat. Your work heat can be changed depending where help is needed. If registration reaches over 150 we will switch to a 4 heat format (work once, run once).  If registration is under 100 we'll run a 4 heat / 2 group format (work twice, run twice). The event will be capped at 160 drivers.  After the limit is reached, you will go on the wait list which will allow you to register on site after registration closes, assuming there were last minute cancelations.

Run order and pricing will be announced by e-mail once registration is closed.  Due to the extremely high costs of our lot rental, the fee for each event may change based on number of drivers registered.

 

Registration

Online payment is required if you pre-register.  You will not be charged until after registration closes, and you have until registration closes to cancel.  If you don't cancel before the event and your account is charged, there are no refunds, but we will offer a credit good for one year (if you have a good excuse for not showing up).  There will be no credits if the event sells out and you fail to notify us by 8am the day of the event (via email, or by canceling in MSR).  When you arrive in the morning, you will need to sign the waiver at the gate.  When registration open around 8am, you will go to the registration table near the truck to check in and get your work assignment. You can then go to tech when it opens around 8am.  You will only need to stop at the truck if you need to change your registration information.  

If you haven't pre-registered, we will accept walk ups, but you will pay the late registration fee, and you MUST check in at the truck.

We will be offering season tech for members again this season.

New for this year, we'll be charging a late-registration fee.  As long as you register at least 3 days before the event, you'll pay normal price.  If you fail to register by midnight on Tuesday before a Saturday event, you'll be charged the walk-up price (an additional $10).  If registration hits the minimum participation threshold (90 drivers) before the early registration deadline, it may be extended until registration closes at 5pm before the day of the event.

Classes

Please try to determine the correct class for your car before registering.  Please refer to the following links for car classing help:

All race tire and CAM classes run in the following index classes:

  • XR : Street Prepared, Street Modified, Prepared, and Modified
  • T : Street Prepared and Street Modified cars running on 200+ tread wear tires.  This class has a PAX adjustment since the standard factor assumes race tires.
  • CAM: CAM-C, CAM-S, and CAM-T

Fees

Based on the high site rental fees at the Meadowlands, events run on Lot E will use tiered pricing based on the number of pre-registered drivers.  The bad news is that low turnout means a higher price, the good news is that the higher cost will mean more runs.  An email will be sent out when registration closes to confirm the price.  You will then have 2 hours to cancel before your credit card is charged if you decide that the cost of these events is too damn high.

Due to issues determining if we'll have the minimum number of drivers at some events last season.  If registration hasn't reached at least 90 drivers 3 days before the event, a late registration fee of $10 will be charged to motivate everyone to not wait until the last minute to register.

Minimum Drivers:

  • Minimum number of pre-registered drivers: 95

Prices: 

Prices and run counts will vary depending on the number of drivers.  Prices will range between $65 and $90 (for members) depending on turnout.  

  • ~ < 100 Drivers: $80-$90 / 7-8 runs
  • ~ 110 Drivers: $70-$80 / 6-7 runs
  • ~ 125+ Drivers: $65-$70 / 5-6 runs

Notes:

  • An additional $15 will be charged to non-members to pay for a weekend membership and insurance costs.
  • Late and walk-up registration (starts 3 days before the event) is an additional $10.

Event requirements

Registration closes at 9:00 am the day before the event.

General Requirements

All competitors must posses a valid driver's license.  All competitors under 18 years of age are required to have a Minor Waiver form signed by a legal guardian.  This form must either be signed in the presence of an SCCA member at the event, or signed and notarized prior to the event.  The minor waiver form is available here.

We do not allow junior karts in NJ.  All kart drivers (KM) must be SCCA members (no weekend memberships permitted).

SCCA Members

All competitors must be SCCA members or Porsche Club members.

If you are not an SCCA Member you can still run, however, you must fill out a weekend membership form on site if you have not pre-registered. If you pre-registered and are not an scca member, the online MSR will submit your info to SCCA and assign you a weekend number for the weekend.  This way for the event you are an SCCA member for insurance purposes.

Passengers

Only approved instructors are allowed as passengers during runs.  You can also ride along with an instructor.
