On March 30 – 31, Santa Clara Corvettes is putting on autocrosses 1 & 2 at Marina Municipal Airport. Our events are open to all cars, and we are inviting fellow car clubs to come on out and enjoy a fun course at a great venue. Five runs per driver plus a good chance of fun runs for registered drivers on Saturday ($5 for two). The cost is $45 for WSCC members and $50 for non-members.
Set-up will occur Saturday morning from 7 – 9 AM, and all help is appreciated. Auto-X wraps up ~ 4PM, or later if we hold fun runs (on Saturday).
Registration will be open from 8 AM until noon on Saturday. There will be 2 run groups in the AM, and 2 more in the PM. Working during one run group is mandatory for all drivers. So you can run and work in the AM and then leave. Or show up ~ 11 and run and work in the PM. Or you can pay twice and run and work in both the AM and PM.
NOTE: On Sunday, we close registration at 10 AM. If registration is light, we may reduce to 3 run groups. So please show up before 10 AM.
You may pre-register on-line at MotorsportReg.com. (Search for Santa Clara Corvettes.)
This makes check-in at the event a breeze, and you have a good chance of selecting your run group ahead of time. You’ll still have to sign the waiver(s), but everything else should be ready to go.
Have a 1 to 4-digit number, 8” high, on both sides of your car. Painter’s tape works well if you don’t have custom numbers (tape should be available at registration).
You must have a 2005 or newer Snell or DOT-approved automotive helmet to run (loaners are available).
There will be a self-tech form for your car that you will need to fill out and sign. If you want to see it ahead of time so that you or a mechanic can check out your car, see the Forms on the website. An on-site inspector will also check a few basic things on your car while it’s on grid. One basic rule – get all the loose stuff out of your car, so that it doesn’t move around and distract you while you’re driving.
Here’s how it works. . . show up the morning of the event. The course is laid out using orange traffic cones. Once on course, drive it like you stole it.
