The 2018 SCCA Alaska Autocross State Championship,  kicks off April 27 with a Autocross School on Friday evening and all day Saturday, and then our first Championship event on Sunday, April 29.

Friday & Saturday Autocross School

Note: Pre-registration and payment is required for the Autocross School.

We do have a cap of 20 students for the school. Since the focus is on training novices we are only allowing novices or people new to autocross to have priority on registering for the school. Any remaining spots by April 23rd will be open to all, first come first serve. For pre-registered entrants to the school, an optional ground school or "chalk talk" will be held Friday evening from 6pm until about 8pm at Porsche of Anchorage, 6115 Old Seward Hwy, Anchorage, AK 99518. This ground school isn't mandatory, but will be geared towards novice drivers or drivers new to our Region, with a lot of extra, helpful information from our more advanced drivers. 

REGISTRATION and ENTRY FEES

The Autocross School on Saturday will have an entry cap of 20 students. Pre-registration is required for the school, and the entry fee is $55 for SCCA Members, or add a weekend membership for only $15 more. There will be no onsite registration for the School, so register and pay today!

Saturday Test -n- Tune

After the completion of the Autocross school on Saturday there will be a brief Test -n- Tune opportunity. The test n tune will be from 5pm until shut down. For those with new cars or set-ups this is an ideal time to get to know your car. The charge for the Test-n-Tune is $10.

Sunday Autocross Event #1

REGISTRATION and ENTRY FEES

The Autocross Event #1: All competitors are encouraged to pre-register (versus "event morning" registration) at the official online registration site for 2018 Autocross events at www.alaskascca.motorsportreg.com  Advance registration for Sunday's event will aid our planning prior to the event.

Entry fees for the Autocross will be $40 for SCCA Members, or if you aren't attending the school add an SCCA Weekend Membership for $15 more. Sunday's event is open for all to attend–whether you attend the School on Saturday or not! Registration will be available at the event, but pre-registration sure makes things easier on our Timing crew.

SCCA membership is required to be able to enter.

Our Driver's Meeting will include a brief talk by the Safety Steward and the Autocross Team will cover the responsibilities each of your will have while working corners during your "work group." This is 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.

We will be taking a one-hour lunch break. There are no restaurants nearby, so it is highly encouraged that you pack a lunch. You will not be able to leave the site to travel into Palmer.

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

Don't forget your Driver's License!

If your street insurance excludes on-track driving, an Autocross + off-track Insurance policy can buy you peace of mind
