PCA-SDR DE – Chuckwalla (CW Sat and CCW Sun)

Event Requirements


This event was cancelled Mar 27, 2020. Can we show you some more events nearby?

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 2020 car class.  Even if you have previously classified your car in 2019, the rules have changed for 2020, 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 2020 class.  Special note for those running in SS classes:  You must now attest to your SS classification on the Zone 8 car classification website.  You will need this info in order to register on the next page.  More information on how to do this is below.

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)!  A 2020 Zone 8 Solo Permit (or approved equivalent) or Student Log Book is required.  DE students will have separate run groups from Solo Permit participants. 


All novice drivers 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 April 10th 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 Student group at this event, car sharing among 2 DE Student participants is not feasible. 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.

No charge for Solo Permits!!!  DE 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 2020 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 2019 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 2020.  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.  Some exotic and special cars that were initially intended for street use may still be on the X-Car class list.  Cars not listed in the zone-8 classification model list are automatically considered X-Cars; a 2004 Carrera GT is one example. 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 corrections need to be made by the registration team you will be charged a $25 admin fee per occurrence.  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:  https://www.zone8.org/assets/docs/SampleTechFormZ8.pdfThe tech form must have a date in the lower right corner of at least Dec 19, 2019.  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 http://zone8.pca.org/CarClass/Default.aspx. Log onto the site and click "View/Edit My Cars" and then click "PDF"  and download the Tech sheet. Save this tech form under a new name and then fill in your personal info and save/print it. 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 2020 which can be found here: Zone 8 rules

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 Saturday 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.

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 1 week prior to the event.  If you cancel within one week of the start of the event there will be a $25 cancellation fee.  If you fail to cancel prior to the event in writing (through MotorsportReg or via email to the event chair or registrar) and do not show up, there will be a $50 fee..  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.
