September 30 Pocono Autocross - PCAPocono Raceway
About this event
Join us for a great day at world famous Pocono Raceway. All cars and drivers welcome!
Welcome, Audi Club of New Jersey!
Welcome Pocono Region PCA!
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 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. 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.
Stock (Showroom Stock) cars must be as delivered from the factory in every way. Zero mods. Nothing can be added or removed from the car. Tire treadwear >200tw.
Production Class allows performance mods in suspension, brakes, interior, safety, etc. Must run >200 treadwear tires.
Improved is more serious performance mods and DOT racing and track tires like Hoosiers are allowed.
Modified is for all race cars that have weight removed, running racing slicks, etc.
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 :-)

Information on Modifications and Classing is here PCA Classing Info.pdf along with a link to the complete Parade Competition Rules (PCRs) for 2022.
This event is operated by and run under the rules of NNJR-Porsche Club of America.
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
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, Perry Aidelbaum's great website on everything autocross in the Northeast US
and 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 and Audi Club New Jersey members with current Membership # pay reduced entry fee of $90. Non PCA/Audi 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
