AUTOCROSS

Porsche at the Shenandoah Region
PCA autocross in Verona
 
The Shenandoah Region PCA hosts four autocross events per year at the Augusta Government Center (map) in Verona, plus one at the Richmond International Raceway and another at the Southside Speedway during the annual Richmond Porsche Meet (RPM). An autocross is a solo race in which the drivers navigate their cars as quickly as possible through twisty courses marked by soft traffic cones. (See these videos of our own Engelbert Muelhaupt driving his green 1971 911T in area autocrosses.) Autocross is a fun but safe introduction to high-performance driving because the cars never exceed highway speeds and drive alone on open, flat surfaces such as the large parking lot at the Augusta Government Center. Autocross drivers learn to drive at the limits of their cars, a valuable skill for avoiding accidents on the road. Learn more about autocross...

The first Shendandoah Region autocross driving clinic for novice drivers was held at the Augusta Government Center in July 2007 (photos). These autocross schools are now annual events; see the photos from 2013 and 2014.

Our autocrosses at the Augusta Government Center are open to Porsches and other brands of cars. Drivers and spectators do not need to be members of the Porsche Club. Loaner helmets and instruction for novice drivers are provided. There is an large open pavilion that provides shelter from sun and rain, and restrooms are available. Events are held rain or shine. Spectators can sit on the grass or bring folding chairs.

Adult participants must sign the waiver form that will be provided at each driving event. Minors may attend PCA events only if their parents bring the appropriate parental-release waiver forms. There are PDF forms for minors as observers only or for minors in restricted areas, riding or driving.

The rules governing our autocrosses are set out in the Parade Competition Rules. The car/driver classes include:
