    Cancellation Policy

    • While autocross is an all weather sport, we are doing this for fun. Standing in a downpour and hiding from lightning is not fun. We reserve the right to cancel the event based on weather predictions. If light rain or clearing is predicted, we will probably still have the event. Driving in the wet can be fun.
    • Check your email before leaving for Road Yoder. Especially if rain is predicted.

    Misc.

    • Bring a lunch.
    • LOANER HELMETS - we only have two. On medium and one large.
      We highly recommend you buy one. They're cheap. Check the local motorcycle shops.
      Open face is okay although some prefer a closed face helmet for convertibles.
      Must have SNELL 2015 or 2010 rating. D.O.T. only is not acceptable.
    • We have a portable toilet on site.

    Full PCA Tech Inspection Rules

    Walk the Course

    This is where we learn the course. Identify areas where acceleration will be maximized. Slow entering these areas. Late apex.

    It is important to practically memorize the course. Because we emphasize learning, we will also do a slow parade lap, maybe two, to make sure you know the course.

    Driver's Safety Meeting

    • Check that everyone has signed the waiver and point out the insurance certificate
      • The insurance does not cover your car – more info is in the binder
    • Safety is our primary concern
    • Drive SLOWLY through grid and paddock
      • 5 mph and no tire warming
    • If you spin, both feet in.
      • Spinning is the primary risk at an autocross
      • The course is designed for some run-off area
      • If you try to recover, you will not stay in the run-off area
      • Brake to stop the car and clutch to not stop the engine

    • Corner workers
      • Hold the radio 12” away
      • no cameras, phones or sitting

      • watch the cones emerge behind the car and reposition cones that wobble
      • for small events, take your time with the cones
    • Cone penalty 2 seconds
      • tipped over or out of the box
      • pointer cones do not count, only upright cones
      • all cones on course count, even before and after the timer
    • If you see a cone down while driving, stop and point it out or you will get the penalty
      • Also stop if you see anything unsafe (worker in your way)
      • You will get a re-run
    • Red flag instructions
      • Corner workers - use the red flag to stop cars on course
