2017 Autocross
Saturdays May 6th & August 26th
9:00 am to 2:00 pm – Rain or Shine

A special gift for our members in 2017…Autocross at Kentucky Speedway plus laps on the tri-oval!!!

There are three big changes to the 2017 season:
1. We are at KY Speedway
2. We have laps on the KY Speedway Tri-Oval
3. You can join the British Car Club as a guest at Live Oaks for an autocross

Ohio Valley Region / Porsche Club of America will have two Autocross events in 2017 on Saturdays starting at 9:00 am. Racing will be held at KY Speedway, 1 Speedway Drive, Sparta, KY 41086 or exit 57 off I-71 South.

Registration is now open! Please register early, we need to conserve time Saturday morning. The entry fee is just $40 per driver.

For those new to the sport, autocross is a fun and exciting way to drive your vehicle on a track against the clock plus we have instructors. Drivers will maneuver around a cone lined course with sharp curves, slaloms, straightaways and tight handling situations. All of this is accomplished in a safe and controlled environment with one driver on course at a time. Safety is the primary focus in autocross.

Awards are given to fastest time of day, most clean runs, best time in each run group and year end champions plus year end prizes at the annual meeting.

Startup time on race day will be 9am, with registration, tech inspections, track walk, morning briefing and a scheduled 15 minute lunch break. This schedule should allow us to wrap up everything by 2:00 pm. Yes, we will have un-timed fun runs after 2:00 pm for anyone who wants to extend their day. Because of our new venue, there will be a new course layout that proves to be more challenging and longer than our 2015 & 2016 season courses.

Autocross is an inexpensive way to gather like minded people, push your driving limits, learn about safe handling in your vehicle and have fun. The events are open to drivers with valid driver’s licenses, Porsche not required. We are hoping for more participation from other car clubs in the surrounding area so feel free to invite your friends. All manufacturers are welcome! Last year we had some very fast cars including: Miatas, Corvettes, Mercedes, Camaros, VWs, and Scions.

Be on the lookout for more articles about Autocross in upcoming issues of The Bent Pylon.
