***ALL PARTICIPANTS ARE REQUIRED TO BRING THEIR OWN MASKS AND HAND SANITIZERS*** 
We will be strictly adhering to all social distancing policies in place at the time (e.g., masks may be required when outside the car; classrooms may be held outdoors; no congregating in large groups / no evening happy hours, etc.).  We also require that all guests be limited to volunteers or ESSENTIAL pit crew only and they must be officially registered and have waivers signed. For those who do not have their own in-car communicator headset, it is strongly recommended that you get your own / do not share, and can be purchased here. Further COVID-related event details will be forthcoming.

This is a one-day event for three types of driver participants: 1) PCA Potomac-approved instructors seeking refresher training; 2) PCA Potomac-approved instructor candidates seeking initial PCA National level instruction; and 3) PCA Potomac-approved solo drivers (the equivalent of PCA White, Black and Red run groups).  The format will maintain separate run groups, and will include instructor/instructor candidate mentoring exercises for those participating in the instructor training. (Note that PCA Potomac instructors are now required to attend one of our Instructor training events at least once every 4 years to remain active on our instructor list and receive instructor discounts at Driver's Education events.)  The event takes place on the Summit Point Main Circuit. 

Registration Fee for Solo Day Drivers and Instructors:  $125
Registration Fee for Instructors and Candidates in the Refresher / National School:  FREE

Potomac requires your car to be inspected no more than 30 days prior to the event (AND must be the only event for the car after getting that inspection!!)  Potomac may be offering a free tech inspection, please see Tech Inspections for more details and to download the required Tech form. (This year's form will be available in late February.)

APPLICATIONS/ACCEPTANCE

  • We require prior training before participating in our DEs -- see the FAQ link above, question "What's the best way to start?" for more details.
  • Our events are open to all marques.
  • You do not need to be a PCA member to participate.
  • Registration closes a week prior to the event (late registrations are risky due to capacity).
  • You may notice your event status is yellow / "New" - until it becomes green / "Confirmed", you only have a place in line not an actual slot in the event. (Or if you see "Waitlist"...keep your fingers crossed for an opening!)  We will contact you again via email prior to the event to confirm acceptance at which time you will also receive instructions about billing and the date your credit card will be billed.
  • No Green or Blue run group students will be accepted. 
  • Sorry, we don't offer single-day or prorated registration. 
  • IF YOU CAN'T PARTICIPATE, IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO CANCEL.
  • Event waivers will be provided for review and required signatures at on-site event registration.

CLOTHING

  • Full coverage rubber-soled shoes, long sleeved and legged clothing, and socks required. Natural-fiber clothing highly recommended. Drivers’ suits, gloves, shoes and neck brace made of fire-resistant materials recommended but not required.

PAYMENT

  • Potomac accepts only credit cards for payment. You are responsible for maintaining valid credit card information in your profile.
  • We bill your credit card shortly before the event and an email will be sent a few days prior to notify you when your card will be charged and will have information on the cancellation policy. We only bill Confirmed drivers, not waitlisted drivers.
  • Billing problems result in notification by email with 48 hours to resolve the issue. If you do not correct the issue within 48 hours, your registration will be canceled. Reinstatement of a registration canceled for this reason will incur a $50 admin fee and require immediate payment with a valid credit card.
  • Credit card and billing information uses secure connections and is encrypted. You are the only person who has access to your card number. We only see the last four digits for billing.

CANCELLATION AND REFUND

  • Billing will take place 5 days prior to the DE and cancellation-without-penalty will be allowed until then.  If a documented Covid-19 related event occurs including exposure, illness, or quarantine after this 5-day limit, please cancel in MSR and Email Dechair@pcapotomac.org regarding possible refund.
