Welcome Autocrossers! 

Join us for a great day at world famous Pocono Raceway. 

 

Welcome, Audi Club of New Jersey!

We are happy to welcome ACNJ to our autocross family and look forward to seeing you at the event!

                                                     
 

This event will be a one day event on the 'East" course (infield).

Memberships with NNJR-PCA, RTR-PCA, and Central PA PCA (and all regions) will all be honored for this event.  All autocrossers are welcome!

We will support PCA classes and SCCA PAX at this event.  All SCCA class cars run in X Class with a PAX modifier.

It is important that you class your car properly. Classes allow fair competition and "PAXes" work like golf handicaps. The classing document is linked below. Find your car and pay close attention to modifications which determine if you are in Stock (what it sounds like), Production or Modified.

If you prefer, select "FUN" (which is non-competitive). However its much more fun to get a real class, real times and adjusted PAX times that you can compare. And maybe win your class :-)

Also, search for information on other websites.  I really like what Potomac PCA (Founders Region) has done here.

And from SCCA, Perry Aidelbaum's great website on everything autocross in the Northeast US

autox4u.com

and the NNJR-SCCA Solo Page

NNJR-SCCA Solo

Autocross is also a great venue to learn how to drive your car and learn - car control, proper braking techniques, how to calculate the proper line, and how your car handles at the limit (or beyond), all in a safe environment.  We will have instructors available to coach novices -- but we will limit this activity.  (Be sure to talk to think about what you want to learn.)

It's also a great & FUN way to learn your car's true potential, and have a fun day with your friends - even if you are not a "competitive" autocrosser.

But don't be surprised if the friendly competition grows on you :-)

PCA members and Audi Club New Jersey members with current Membership # pay reduced entry fee of $90.  Non PCA/Audi pay $100.  Thank you to all our PCA and Non PCA Autocross friends for registering!

There is no on-site registration.

This event runs rain or shine. Weather is not a legitimate reason to cancel.

If you do not want to deal with the complexities of classing your car, simply select "FUN" - you will still receive your times, but you will not be competing with others in a class.

If you do not know your class, documents are available on the PCA and SCCA websites

SCCA and PCA Classing Notes

We will run all SCCA classed cars in "X" Class.  SCCA PAX modifiers will also be used to level the field.
