-To improve our events, we have made the following changes:

-Registration will promptly close at 9:00 am on the day of the event
-Events will be limited to 60 participants
- The success of our events is completely dependent on volunteers. Therefore, this year we are asking for participants to pre-register for several key volunteer positions. 
- Please select one item from the "Event Options" section; see descriptions for details. 

Please help us run a successful event by:
1. Pay prior to the event to avoid an additional $15 day of registration fee
2. Review the Tech Sheet and double check the “Registration Details” for accuracy
- This form will be attached to your confirmation and is available at the PCA Chicago Region website
3. Bring your completed Tech Inspection Form with you to the event.
- UTQG: This is the wear rating for your tires.  This can be found on the sidewall of your tires.  If you are new to autocross, the Tech Inspector can help you find where this is located. 
- Make sure the positive battery terminal is completely covered with tape.  This ensures that nothing can come in contact with the terminal. The PCA Chicago Autocross program reserves the right to deny participation to vehicles with excessive exhaust noise (95 db).
4. Park your vehicle next to the vehicle that arrived just before you (e.g.. not in the middle of the parking lot).  We would like to have all cars parked in the order of arrival.  This significantly improves the flow of our Tech Inspection process and helps us start our event on time.  If you want to park next to someone, please coordinate your arrival before entering the venue. 
5. Empty everything out of your car immediately after parking so that it can be Tech inspected.  Anything that is loose must be removed from your car, including floor mats.
6. Complete and place the Tech Inspection Form under your windshield wiper.  This indicates that you are ready to have your car inspected.
7. Wait for your car to be inspected.  After obtaining the event sticker and signed Tech Inspection Form from the Tech Inspector.  Apply sticker to the front top section of your windshield on the driver’s side. 
8. Proceed to the registration table with your signed Tech Inspection Form.
9. Check in and look for your pre-printed name on the PCA Waiver, sign it.
10. Apply your assigned car number to both sides of your vehicle.  Numbers should be 8” or larger (if you do not have pre-printed numbers use blue painters tape)
11. Relax, mix and mingle, walk the course or help setup the course until the drivers meeting at 9:20 am. 
12. And most importantly....Have Fun!

3. As the Drive group is finishing please keep an eye on the staging line for the last car to
complete the course.
4. After the last car has run and the course is “cold” promptly replace the workers on the
course. This enables us to quickly get the next driving group on the course

1. This group will work the course when we start at 9:30.

Classification and Bumping Guidelines:

It will sometimes be necessary to group classes together in order to form a competitive group for awards.  It is preferred to have 3 or more competitors in a group. If that is not possible within these guidelines, a group may be comprised of less than 3 competitors.  If the competitor(s) in this group agree, they may at their option run in the next highest group regardless of the number of class bumps.

The exception to this rule is the Modified class which cannot be grouped with any other class.

Competitors will be bumped no more than one class to form a competitive group.  Grouping will be performed by Timing & Scoring based on the registration information from Clubregistration prior to the event.  It is important that the vehicle information is accurate and up to date upon registration

Vehicles are placed in the appropriate stock class using the current Parade Competition Rules for Autocross.  The Chicago Region has made some minor changes to these classes based on Region experience and participation numbers.  Modifications providing a positive effect in performance will cause the vehicle to be bumped up to a higher class depending on the type and number of modifications.

Competitors must compete in the class defined by the year, make and model of their car plus any bumping required by modifications.

Year End Awards:

The following point table will be used to calculate the finishing points for each event.  At year end, the point totals for each competitor will be calculated and the top 5 (five) will receive year end awards for the season. 

General Notes:

There must be at least a 5-minute cool down period between runs by a vehicle including re-runs.

The competition will have two categories, Open for all participants and Women’s.  Competitors must choose the category they will participate in prior to the start of the first event and must compete in that category for the remainder of the season.

Participants who do not pre-register will compete in X-Class for that event and will be ineligible for an event award.  PCA members will have their results integrated with the appropriate class at the end of the year for overall consideration.
Refund Policy We run our events rain (light-medium) or shine! In the event that conditions put participant safety at risk (i. e.  lightning) we will cancel the event and your registration fee will be applied to the next scheduled Precision Car Control event.  The decision to cancel an event will not not be made until the morning of the event. 

Refunds will not be issued for participant cancellation within three days of the event. 
Indemnity Policy I agree to indemnify and hold harmless the Porsche Club of America-Chicago Region, as well as its directors, officers, employees, agents, advisors, and assigns (collectively, the "Club") from any loss, liability, damage, fees, or cost, including bodily injury or property damage of any sort, that I may incur or cause arising out of or related to my presence at or participation in the Club's events, whether caused by the negligence or fault of the Club, or otherwise.  I acknowledge that I remain solely responsible at all times for the safety and roadworthiness of my car, including its condition, preparation, and suitability for the Club's events, as well as my own physical and mental fitness to participate in Club events.  By participating in the Club's events, I am assuming all responsibility for risk of damage to or caused by my car, and agree that if I or my car damages or destroys any event facilities or property, I will reimburse the Club for any such expenses incurred, including without limitation, all costs and fees incurred in connection with the clean up, repair, or removal of any damaged property, spilled fluids, discarded tires or other scrap, or fees for late exit from the event facilities. 

I agree to abide by the rules and regulations of the Club and any supplementary rules or regulations provided in connection with the Club's events or by the event facilities owners or operators.
