Please come out and join us at Utah Motorsports Campus sponsored by Porsche Lehi. After a long couple of months of lock down, we’re back, and I’m sure everyone is itching to go. SLC is still at an Orange risk level https://coronavirus.utah.gov/utahs-moderate-risk-phase/ This means a limit of 20 people and lots of distancing.
Also, due to Covid limitations, we will not have loaner helmets, and we will not be able to allow first time auto crossers (unless you have previous experience with other groups like SCCA).
We want to avoid personal contact as much as possible, so please register and pay electronically at msreg.com/July20AX (sorry about the name, event is on the 12th) Pre-reg fee: $30.00 PCA members, $40.00 non-members.
Pre-registration also secures you a spot should we have to limit attendance.
There will be no on-site registration.

What is autocross?
Autocross consists of navigating your car as quickly as possible through a course made of cones. It’s a great way for any licensed driver to improve skills in his or her weekend sports car or everyday car. We provide coaches to new autocross drivers who will ride with you and provide pointers. For safety reasons, there is only ever one car on the course at a time, and the course is designed to keep speeds relatively low. Each of your runs will be timed, so that you can evaluate how much improvement you make on successive runs throughout the day. Come on out and give it a try. You will be AMAZED at how much progress you will make in one day! Without exception, people who autocross comment about how their autocross experience has improved confidence and ability with everyday driving on the street.
Come on out and give autocross a try! The social environment is low-key, and the level of intensity you bring to the driving is completely up to you.
