Notes

7:00 Gates Open Gates open at 7:00. Most people arrive between 7:15 and 7:45.
7:00 - 8:00 Checkin Everyone needs to check in. If you are preregistered, paid and confirmed, you will be checked in at the gate.
Please have your Driver's License and PCA or RMC Membership Card ready.
7:30 - 8:00 Registration Tent Open If you are not registered, owe money or have changes to your registration you must report to the registration tent.
7:15 - 8:15 Tech Inspection All cars must pass a safety inspection and receive the official inspection sticker.
Remove all loose items from the car, change your tires, and display your car number prominently on both sides of your car.
You must also bring your helmet to be inspected (Snell 2005 or 2010 approved).
8:15 Drivers' Meeting Mandatory. All entrants must attend.
8:30 Novice Meeting All Novice entrants must attend. Any other first year participants are also welcome. Includes a guided course walk. Meet at the Start Line near the timing tent.
8:30 - 9:15 Course Walking Everyone should walk the course, at least two to three times. If you're new to autocross find someone to walk the course with. Most people are more than willing to show a newcomer the way around the course and answer questions. No wheels allowed (no bikes, no scooters, no roller blades, heelies etc); walking the course means walking the course.
9:30 First Car Off One group will work while the other group runs (groups will be announced at the drivers' meeting). Then you switch over, usually after about 60-90 minutes, and 3-4 runs each. After everyone has run, that's the end of the morning session. The afternoon session is a repeat of the morning session, with everyone getting another 3-4 runs.
4:00 Awards We're usually done running by around 4:00 (but be prepared to stay until 5:00 if needed). Then we announce the results and present the awards.
