September 12 Pocono Autocross - NNJR, RTR, CPAPocono Raceway
About this event
Join us for a great day at world famous Pocono Raceway.
This event will be a one day event on the 'East" course (infield).
Memberships with NNJR-PCA, RTR-PCA, and Central PA PCA (and all regions)will all be honored for this event. All autocrossers from all clubs are welcome!
We will support PCA classes and SCCA PAX at this event. All SCCA class cars run in X Class with a PAX modifier.
It is important that you class your car properly. Classes allow fair competition and "PAXes" work like golf handicaps. The classing document is linked below. Find your car and pay close attention to modifications which determine if you are in Stock (what it sounds like), Production or Modified.
If you prefer, select "FUN" (which is non-competitive). However its much more fun to get a real class, real times and adjusted PAX times that you can compare. And maybe win your class :-)
This event is operated by and run under the rules of NNJR-Porsche Club of America.
Note that there will be changes in operations due to COVID social distancing practices:
1. We will allow limited instruction / instructional rides. No passengers without approval. If there are two people in a car, one MUST be an approved PCA AutoX Instructor
2. Practice Social Distancing
3. Masks must be worn whenever you are in proximity of others.
4. Waivers must be signed : (1) A PCA Covid waiver must be printed and signed in advance (1) The regular liability waiver must be printed ahead and signed on site.
5. There will be no loaner helmets at this event, to avoid virus transmission.
Please note that we will limit registrations to ~80 entrants.
Format is TBD, either 2 heats split morning/afternoon or 3 single heats.
We expect between 6-9 runs total; depending on weather, attendance and technical success :-)
Please read all information and download and read all linked forms.
On-site sign-in Tent/Event opens at 7:45 AM.
We will set a course that creates a challenging and safe autocross environment.
If you have questions about autocross, what is required, or a typical day, please go to our website, including the documents/download page which has TONS of information.
Also, search for information on other websites. I really like what Potomac PCA (Founders Region) has done here.
And from SCCA, the NNJR-SCCA Solo Page
Autocross is also a great venue to learn how to drive your car and learn - car control, proper braking techniques, how to calculate the proper line, and how your car handles at the limit (or beyond), all in a safe environment. We will have instructors available to coach novices -- but we will limit this activity. (Be sure to talk to think about what you want to learn.)
It's also a great & FUN way to learn your car's true potential, and have a fun day with your friends - even if you are not a "competitive" autocrosser.
But don't be surprised if the friendly competition grows on you :-)
PCA Members with current Membership # pay reduced entry fee of $90. Non PCA Members pay $100. Thank you to all our PCA and Non PCA Autocross friends for registering!
There is no on-site registration.
This event runs rain or shine. Weather is not a legitimate reason to cancel.
If you do not want to deal with the complexities of classing your car, simply select "FUN" - you will still receive your times, but you will not be competing with others in a class.
If you do not know your class, documents are available on the PCA and SCCA websites

No cancellations after 72 hours prior. These are your events operated by your club, on a not-for-profit basis by unpaid volunteers. Please help us make these expensive and difficult to run events possible. Commit. Volunteer to help. Be part of the clubs that put these on. Last minute cancellations generate more work and harm already fragile finances as tracks and large lots charge more every year.
