Registration: Be sure to complete Registration. The final registration page has Event Receipt at the top of it. You should also receive an email stating you are registered. Lastly, we highly recommend you check the attendance page to make sure your name is on it. If it is not, then you are not registered and need to try again.
Directions: Must enter through the Main Gate. The Guards will likely give you a placard for the Autox. On the back of that is a map to the event site. Just in case, once on base continue on the main road until you pass the flightline (hard to miss no trees speed limit picks up and there is a sign). Just past flightline there is a stop light, turn right and it is your last right just after Duffy Road and before the T intersection at end of the road. There is usually a sign at the stoplight and just before the turn in to the flight line that say AUTO-X and an arrow.
Non-Drivers: Sign up as Non Driver Status on the checkout page. Cherry Point does not care how you are participating in the event, they want the same information. This information is collected through our registration system so that is why you sign up to be on site, the way you do. There is NO fee associated with the Non Driver Status, and it is free.
Online pre-registration for SCCA members and non-members without base access will close on February 22 at Midnight. This is to ensure that the information needed for processing onto base is given to base officials with time to spare. Once registration has closed we will not be able to add your name and information to the registration list. We collect online payment information but do not charge for the event until the morning of the event. This means there is no charge to register until you show up to drive. If you are even thinking of attending the event we recommend that you pre-register to get your name on the list. To guarantee your spot, Pre-register! We cannot guarantee access to base if we do not have your information in time.
Please Check our Supplemental Rules page here for several rule changes that have been instituted this year.
Drivers must be 16 years of age and hold a valid drivers license. Drivers under 18 years of age must fill out the minor waivers. All vehicles must pass a technical inspection and helmets must be SNELL 2010 or newer. Loaner helmets are available.
Classing: Car classing is up to the driver. To help with this a copy of the SCCA Solo (Autocross) Rule Book can be found here.
This year we will be using the 2022 SCCA car classing and a few special classes:
Pro: Drivers in this class will perform the same number of runs as every class but only the first three runs will count toward their PAX position for the event. This class will be indexed by the current PAX factors.
Raw Time(RT): Any driver may run in Raw Time Class. This class is not indexed and has no pax. Drivers in this class will have the time for all of their runs added together and the lowest total time will win the event. Each cone penalty will add 4 seconds to the driver’s run and DNF will add 10 seconds to the driver’s run.
Send It!(SI): This class is run what you built kind of class, if it passes safety inspection and has greater than 250 Treadwear Tires (i.e. 300, 400, 500, etc) - Send It!. This class is a raw time for bragging rights type competition. This class will only have Day of Event Awards.
Class and number must be displayed on both sides of the car and be legible at a distance. We do not supply numbers or tape for drivers. If you use painters tape be sure it is a contrasting color to your car.
