About this event

EVENT IS FULL!

Welcome to the third and final Track Club USA Autocross of the abbreviated 2020 season.  If you haven't ever been to one of our events, you will not be disappointed! TCUSA events feature lots of seat time by limiting participation to approximately 60 cars! Typically you will have 10+ runs. Due to the reduced attendance limit of 50 people, we will not be accepting Novice entries with less than three event's worth of experience, as documented by Motorsprotreg.com.

COVID 19 Precautions:

We will be operating under MA COVID-19  Phase 2 Guidelines, so our events will be significantly different than what you have experienced in the past. Specific detailed instructions and required procedures will be provided with the confirmation e-mail sent out to registrants several days before the event, but there are several requirements with which you will need to be aware before you register:

  2. The registered driver or registered co-driver are the only ones allowed in a specific car, no car swapping

  4. No in-car instructors will be provided. Some level of instruction will be provided outside of the in-car environment.
  5. Registrants to provide their own face masks, and encouraged to provide hand sanitizer inside their car for their personal use.  We will provide hand sanitizer, and sanitizing wipes at the cone stations and other locations, and a small supply of masks in case your dog ate yours.

Things you need to know before you sign up to run with us;

1. You need a valid drivers license and the car you plan to use needs to have a current registration with valid sticker.  No dedicated race cars please. You must have current automobile insurance on your vehicle. Your car must be street legal and have a full exhaust. Devens has strict sound limits. Your car can not exceed 10db over ambient at the property border. We will monitor every car at two locations during the event. If your car exceeds the limit you will be notified and have an opportunity to correct it. If you can not you will not be allowed to run. Please do not bring a loud car to Devens. 

2. You will need a Snell M or SA 2010 or higher rated or helmet.. FIA homologated helmets are ok.  We have loaners available if you're trying autocross for the first time but it will not be guaranteed, so go and get or borrow a proper helmet.

3. The event runs from 7am to 6pm and we run rain or shine.  Come prepared. It is important that you are able to stay the entire day!  When you are driving, someone else is working the course picking up the cones that are struck.  We need you to work the course while other people are driving.  If you can't stay the entire day please wait for an event that you can stay all day before signing up. If you leave early without notifying the event chair you will not be allowed into future events.
