On Sunday, Sept 8, Santa Clara Corvettes is putting on autocrosses #9 at Marina Municipal Airport. Our events are open to all cars, and we invite fellow car clubs to come on out and enjoy a fun course at a great venue. We strive for five runs per driver. The cost is $45 for Western States Corvette Council (WSCC) members and $50 for non-members.
You may pre-register at MotorsportReg.com, or you can register on site Sunday morning. But NOTE: Registration and check-in will be open ONLY FROM 8 AM UNTIL 9 AM on Sunday. Pre-registered or not, you must check-in by 9 AM in order to run on Sunday. There will be 2 run groups (RG) only, with no lunch break. Working during one run group is mandatory for all drivers. So everybody running on Sunday needs to be there by 9 AM. There will be no fun runs on Sunday.
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) and the tech inspection sheet, 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 will be available at registration). Note your car number must be unique at this event. If you register on line, it will tell you if your desired number is already taken (once you pay). You will be prompted to select another number. If you register on site, we will manually confirm your number is available.
You must have a 2005 or newer Snell or DOT-approved automotive helmet to run (loaners are available). M-rated helmets (motorcycle) are not allowed. 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.
