It is strongly recommended that SCCA members apply for yearlong waivers, aka “hard cards.” To receive a hard card, click must here to log into your SCCA account. Then, print out a waiver form and either 1) have it notarized, or 2) sign it with an SCCA member witness. You may bring the yearlong waiver form to an event and sign it in front of the waiver worker, which would fulfill the requirements for a hard card.
Any site-specific waiver forms will still need to be signed when entering the site for the first time with the waiver worker.
We will also hold an on-site drivers meeting to answer any questions that entrants may have.
There will likely be an awards ceremony after the event at Beaverton Bowl (3325 S, M-18, Beaverton, MI 48612). Trophies may be distributed either at the event, afterward at the ceremony, sent to entrants after the event (by request), or at the annual Awards Banquet the following year.

Technical Inspection and Helmets:
Tech inspectors will be inspecting aspects of your car from the outside only. They will ensure that the wheels are solidly mounted to the car with no play in the wheel bearings, the tires are not damaged and are not showing cords, the battery in the engine bay is properly tied down, and the car is appropriately marked with class and car number.
The tech inspector will ask you to verify that your brake pedal is firm, the accelerator pedal returns, and that the car is clear of loose objects.
All competitors should bring their own helmet to use in competition. Helmets must be Snell 2010 or newer (M2010 or SA2010) or equivalent. You may be asked to show the tech inspector the sticker inside your helmet if you do not have a current helmet sticker. Once the tech inspector visually confirms the helmet sticker, you may be directed to pick up a sticker from a table next to tech inspection.Loaner helmets will be available for competitors or passengers on a fist come, first served basis.
- Competitor vehicles must be at least as wide as they are tall. The vehicle’s width is determined by measuring the distance between the outermost portion of each tire. The width must be greater than height measured to top of roof on both axles. Vehicles that appear to pose a rollover risk may be disqualified at the discretion of a safety steward, event chairperson, or program director.
- Convertables are not allowed.
Studded tires (including tires with DOT studs) are permitted.
Tire chains are not permitted.
Two-driver cars will take their runs in the following order: 1st driver takes half of their runs, followed by 2nd driver taking all of their runs, followed by the 1st driver taking the remainder of their runs. This is subject to change the day of the event at the descretion of the event organizers.
Competitors will choose a one, two or, three-digit number at registration. Numbers are to be clearly displayed on each side of the car. Compliant numbers must be applied to receive a tech sticker. Numbers should be at least 8” high and of a contrasting color. Masking, painters, or electrical tape is a good method for numbering, and limited provisions for numbering will be provided on site.
