Porsche Club of America – San Diego Region welcomes you!

Join us at what has become PCA San Diego's home track for the first of three great weekends in 2017:  Chuckwalla Valley Raceway, Saturday & Sunday, January 28 & 29, running clockwise.  January is the high season in the low desert, and usually provides nearly perfect driving weather.  Be sure to carefully read everything on both this page and the next before signing-up so that you aren't shut out!

By the way, if you participated in our 2016 events, be sure to register now for the Driver Awards Party!

This Chuckwalla event features both a Driver's Ed (DE) and a Time Trial (TT), with separate run groups for each format and differing entrant requirements (DE events have no driving prerequisites; see Prior Experience section on the following page).  Time Trials, which have driving prerequisites, work like a Driver's Ed event during practice, but feature Transponder timing during all sessions with times posted online and optionally sent to your mobile phone immediately thereafter, as well as available in the Club's permanent record database at the conclusion of the event (no timing for DE run groups and in-car timers are prohibited for novices).  Run groups are allocated based upon supply and demand.  All spots are allocated first come, first served (subject to Season Pass priority).  If you sign-up and a spot does not become available for you, you will not be charged.  Thus, if you are interested in participating, especially as a novice DE or experienced TT Student, indicate your interest by signing-up ASAP.

Important information for signing-up (read and heed this carefully before registration opens if you really want to attend):

  • Due to very high expected demand, completing the online registration process DOES NOT mean you are Confirmed to attend the event
  • Sign-up correctly when registration first opens to maximize your chances of being Confirmed
  • To sign-up correctly, thoroughly read this information page and the next, follow all instructions (many of which need to be completed before registration opens), then carefully fill out the registration form on the third page once it becomes available
  • If you do not perform the steps that are required to be completed before you go on to register you will likely either not be able to complete registration before a sellout occurs or you will have an incomplete registration which will cause a loss of your registration priority based upon time of sign-up
  • Your card will not be charged when you sign-up (though the number will be collected)
  • You must monitor your e-mail regularly and be prepared to respond to any inquiries you may receive within 24 hours (8 hours the week of the event) or you will lose your priority
  • Plan to check your Dashboard on MotorsportReg about 2 weeks after registration opens to view your status
  • If you are Waitlisted, we do expect movement in the Waitlist as Confirmed participant cancellations occur

Only two day registration is available for this event, though you may attend only one of the two days if you wish (DE participants must attend the Saturday morning classroom session at the track and thus, if only choosing to drive one of the two days, must drive on Saturday).  The base price for this event (assumes early registration, no need to rent anything, etc.) is $270 for the weekend.  Track time per entrant is expected to be approximately 3 hours, and traffic is anticipated to be low so everyone should be able to get tons of flying laps.  Our $/hour ratio is among the lowest of any group, especially when you factor in the quality aspect.  See the Payment section below for more info.

To register we require that you join the PCA - San Diego group here on MotorsportReg.com (note:  this just means adding PCA - San Diego to your list of Clubs on MotorsportReg; it does not make you a member of PCA).  Regardless of which region of PCA you belong to or if you don't belong to PCA at all, you must join the SDR group on this web site (again, doing so will not make you a member of PCA).  This will be done as a step in the registration process.  Non-Porsches that meet our rules are welcome!!!

Season Pass:  For those TT drivers who plan to run with us all season long – see our complete schedule here – we again offer the Season Pass at no up-front cost!  Track rental rates have been rising each year and yet we have not had a significant price increase in several years.  In fact, in 2013 we LOWERED PRICES for early registration (defined as at least 2 weeks prior to the event), providing drivers that register in a timely fashion with the same prices they paid back in 2007.  Even with continuing increases from some of the tracks SDR is holding tight on prices yet again for 2017, but with a Season Pass you can get an even better deal and an awesome free gift!

Sign-up for the Season Pass with this event then simply pay for and attend all days of all of our TT events this year (TT'ers may skip up to 4 event-days, and registration in the Club Race portion of a joint SDR TT/CR event qualifies as attendance) while receiving $25 off the then-current online price of each multi-day event ($10 per single-day event, if offered; note that it is your responsibility after signing-up to claim the Season Pass discount at each event – it isn't automatic).  And you automatically receive priority when registering for events (processed first for new events, and moved to the top of the Waitlist for any event you sign-up for that is full at the time).  You'll also receive an exclusive free gift just for signing-up.  The PCASDR soft case has room for all your event paperwork, a padded compartment for your laptop or tablet, a sleeve to hold your Windblown Witness, and bears the SDR logo.  For more details on how you can use this great case, watch this video.  Combined with early registration prices for events, with a Season Pass you'll be paying what we charged way back in 2003 for SDR events!  You will not be charged anything up-front and will be entitled to the above discount at each SDR-managed TT track event in 2017 including the California Festival of Speed.  If you miss more event-days than permitted, you will be back-billed for the cumulative discounts you received plus $100 to cover the cost of the gift you received.  Complete details will be sent to you after you sign-up and you may opt out at that time with no cost or obligation.  It's simple, costs you nothing, gets you an exclusive free gift, and potentially saves you $175 over the course of the season!  Note:  the design above is for illustrative purposes only and may be different than the actual production item.  You must sign-up for the Season Pass by January 2 in order to guarantee your gift availability.

Physical Damage Insurance:  Insurance for your car is available for this event via Lockton Affinity, LLC, PCA's exclusively endorsed insurance provider.  Note that liability coverage is not included and Time Trial Timed Runs now appear to be insurable for an additional charge.  This insurance is strictly optional.  Be sure to read all the fine print.  For more info click here and search for Chuckwalla January 28-29.

Lap Times and Event Info on your Mobile Phone:  You may sign-up for our mobile phone timing and notification system as part of your registration for this event.  For a Standard subscription (lap times for your car, notifications of postings for your run group, and important announcements), simply check the box that says you do not want a Custom subscription.  Even if you do not wish to take advantage of this service, you MUST have your mobile phone number on file with MotorsportReg in the Mobile/Cell field or your registration will not be processed.  Having your mobile number in any other field while leaving the Mobile/Cell field blank amounts to not having your mobile number in the system.  Again, your registration is not valid until this has been completed and others registering after you will be prioritized ahead of you.  To check or input this, sign in, then click the “My Account” tab in the Dashboard, then click “Edit profile”, then click “Edit My Information”.  Enter your mobile phone number into the field titled “Mobile/Cell” – even if you already have it in other fields – then click “Save My Information”.

Event Hotel:  Best Western Date Tree Hotel, 81909 Indio Boulevard, Indio, CA  92201, (760) 347-3421.  The rate should be around $80/night.  Ask for the Chuckwalla Race Track rate or the best available, in case they have a better offer at the time you call.  If the Best Western is not available, check out Rodeway Inn & Suites, 82275 Indio Boulevard, Indio, CA  92201, (760) 775-2229.  It is suggested that you call any hotel soon and directly, rather than using any travelnow.com or other links to the right in order to get the best rate.

Camping at the Track:  You may camp at the track.  Please phone Chuckwalla Valley Raceway to make arrangements.  There may be fees payable to the track in order to camp.

RV rentals:  If interested in an RV rental, try Class A Motorhome Rentals, El Monte RV, or Go RVing.

Late Registration:  You must register with credit card on file by 11:59 pm January 13 to receive the discounted online rate; after that a $50 late fee applies through January 22.  Online registration closes at 11:59 pm January 22, after which even higher on-site registration fees apply (though space is unlikely to be available at that time).

Payment:  You MUST use a credit card to pay if registering online, VISA, MasterCard, Discover preferred, though we do accept AMEX.  For complete event pricing details proceed with registration steps.  You will have a chance to confirm (or abort) after you make your selections.  Card billed AFTER the event.

Cancellation Fee:  There are potential fees associated with cancelling after various dates.  Please see the full cancellation policy at the bottom of the next page.

If you have a question about this event, please contact the Registrar at:  preregAway@pcasdr.org.
