PCASDR DE & Time Trial – Chuckwalla (CW)

Event Requirements


Registration closed October 15, 2017 11:59 PM on October 15, 2017 11:59 PM PDT Registration ends October 15, 2017 11:59 PM on October 15, 2017 11:59 PM PDT Registration opens September 10, 2017 12:00 AM on September 10, 2017 12:00 AM PDT Registration runs from September 10, 2017 12:00 AM to October 15, 2017 11:59 PM

NOTE:  If you have a Porsche, before continuing on to register you MUST first enter your car on the Zone 8 car classification website to determine your 2017 car class.  Even if you have previously classified your car in 2016, the rules have changed for 2017, and thus you must go to the above website, edit your car, re-examine all questions and answers, and click all the way through until you see and click on Finished to determine your proper 2017 class.  You will need this info in order to register on the next page.  More information on how to do this is below.  If you made changes to your car over the summer, you must also reclassify before you go on to register!

Prior Experience:  DE participants need no prior experience (minimum age of 18 years, valid state driver's license, and good mental and physical health required)!  Time Trial participants without a Zone 8 Solo Permit (or approved equivalent) must have completed at least 8 Autocross and/or DE and/or Driving School days or equivalent over the past 24 months.  DE participants will have separate run groups from Time Trial participants.  Based upon past sign-ups we are likely to have only 1 DE group made up exclusively of novices.  If you are not a novice and you meet the event-day requirement above but would otherwise be seeking to participate in an intermediate/advanced DE-type of event, sign-up for the Time Trial instead.  Competitive Timed Runs are optional within the Time Trial, though all Time Trialers must have an AMB/MYLAPS Transponder on their car during practice regardless.

All DE novice drivers and TT drivers without a recognized credential are considered to be Students will be required to have an Instructor.  Novice DE drivers will have a required educational component as part of their schedule that commences on Saturday morning.  If you are a novice DE driver with no prior performance driving experience you must be at the TRACK by 7:00 am Saturday morning October 21 so that you are fully registered and teched prior to the drivers' meeting and mandatory classroom session.  Since it is unlikely that there will be more than 1 DE group at this event, car sharing among 2 DE participants is not feasible (though if one participant qualifies to Time Trial, sharing is not an issue so long as there is enough demand for a DE group).  Also please note that there are clothing requirements and an approved Snell 2010 or later M or SA helmet is required.  Please contact the Registrar at least 2 weeks prior to the event for information on helmet rental if needed (be sure to specify the size you require).  Experienced drivers new to SDR track events may also be required to have an Instructor until their competency has been demonstrated.

TT'ers with qualifying credentials:  no charge for Solo Permits!!!  DE and TT Students without Zone 8 Student Log Books:  please check the appropriate box to order one when you register.

You must classify your car using the 2017 Zone 8 Rules before you go on to register for this event.  If you plan to drive a Porsche in the event that was originally produced for the street, you must classify using the following website (even if you wish to run that Porsche in non-competitive X class):  http://zone8.pca.org/CarClass/Default.aspx.  If you had previously determined and entered your class in 2016 or earlier and have made no changes to your car you must still revisit the above website and click through the edit process in order for the site to recalculate properly for 2017.  Note the resulting point totals and class and enter them when you register.  Non-Porsches (which must run in X class), or Porsches not originally produced for street use, must use the following spreadsheet to determine Performance Equipment Points:  http://www.zone8.org/assets/docs/DE_TTSafetyEquipCalculator.xlsx.  Note the Performance Equipment point total and enter it when you register.  You must use the appropriate version of the above for your car BEFORE you click   Continue   below and begin to register as you are required to input the resulting information as part of the registration process.  If you register without doing the above your registration will not be considered complete and you will be placed On Hold.  If you do not complete the above until after a price increase has occurred you will be required to pay the higher price.  Additionally, we reserve the right to accept others whose registrations are complete while you are On Hold, which could land you on the Waitlist once your hold is resolved.  Bottom line:  follow the above instructions in the proper order to maximize your chances of participating!

Pre-tech is Strongly Encouraged!  Please try to take your car in for service and have it thoroughly inspected prior to this event.  With two full days of our high track time event in the low desert, you will want to be safe and have your car make it through the weekend.  Plus you'll want to be certain that, before you leave for the track, you and your car have any required safety equipment (Stock and Street Stock coupes generally need no additional safety equipment, but see the Rules link below to be sure that you qualify).  All entrants pre-teching must present a current Tech Inspection Form with name, address, phone, car, class, etc. to a qualified tech inspection shop.  The form can be found at:  http://www.pcasdr.org/misc/ax/AXRegForm.pdfThe tech form must have a date in the lower right corner of at least Dec 10, 2016.  Do not use any older form as only the most recent form will be accepted and if you bring the wrong form you will need to re-tech at the track.  Better yet, use our automated tech form printer, available after you classify your car on the Zone 8 classification site (see above paragraph).  Cars inspected by shops not personally known to the Registrar are subject to random on-site re-inspection.  If you do not properly pre-tech you will be required to pass an on-site tech inspection at the track.

This is a Zone 8 event and it will run under PCA Zone 8 Driving Rules for 2017 which can be found here: http://www.zone8.org/assets/docs/2017/Rules/2017Z8Rules.pdf.

If there are any changes to your registration data after the online registration deadline, you need to notify the Registrar by the day of the event BEFORE the first run session.  If you know you will have a change after you sign-up, it is greatly appreciated if the information can be provided to the Registrar by the Sunday prior to the event.  Doing this will save you time at the track.

All entrants and guests shall be required to sign the PCA waiver upon registering at the track.  This is in addition to any waiver that the track itself may require you to sign.  You are responsible for your guests and may be asked to leave the event if your guests are found to have not signed the PCA waiver.

The track may charge its own separate nominal entrance fee.  This fee does not go to PCA and is beyond our control.

Transponders:  If you have an AMB/MYLAPS Transponder, be sure you've entered the number under "My Account."  (Hint:  you do this where you edit your vehicle information.)  If you don't have a Transponder, they are available for rent and you must have a qualifying Transponder to drive in the Time Trial.  Alternatively you may borrow one from someone who is NOT participating in the event, or purchase your own.  If you utilize one of these alternatives you must provide the serial number by one week prior to the event.  Transponder not required for DE registrants.

SPECIAL NOTE:  This event may qualify for the SDR 60th anniversary contest which awards a free entry to the 60th SDR member to register. The MotorsportReg.com roster is used to determine the winner. Please ensure that your membership number and region are correct here on MotorsportReg.com. Go to 'My Account' and look under 'Club Memberships' to verify your data is correct.

Cancellation Policy:  In the event of a driver’s cancellation within 2 weeks of an event, the Club reserves the right to retain a percentage of the driver’s base registration fee if the Club, in its sole discretion, determines that weather forecasts from any source may have had an adverse impact on registered driver cancellations (regardless of the stated reason for any cancellation).  In such cases, the Club will retain only that percentage of the driver’s base registration fee necessary so that the Club at most breaks even for that event.  Translation:  If there’s no rain or extreme heat in the forecast at any time during the 2 weeks prior to an event, you may cancel in writing at any time for any reason up to the time the green flag drops.  If there is rain or extreme heat in the forecast and you cancel during this time, the Club may keep some of your base registration fee, but only enough so that the Club does not lose money on the event.  If other non-cancelled drivers put the Club in the black for that event, you will not be charged for cancelling.
