PLEASE NOTE: This is an opportunity for new/novice competitors to enter the event and be able to see and learn-from the more experienced AROC & DCSCC competitors.  While not a drivers school, there will be ample opportunity to ask advice, get pointers, and learn how to autocross in a relaxed atmosphere. New/novice/limited experienced drivers will have a separately conducted course walk in advance of the first car out.

This is a 2018 DCSCC Champ Series event: 2018 DCSCC Rules, as well as AROC Autocross rules prevail.

Entry fee for EACH DRIVER:

**WORK/RUN

.Autocrossing is a self-worked, volunteer-run sport in which competitors have a work heat opposite their run heat. Per DCSCC guidelines, there will be three staging lines: First run, Re-run and Hot-re-run. Competitors are reminded to volunteer working when they are not competing;  The event MUST be delayed if we have inadequate course workers.

**SAFETY

>Everyone on-site must sign the AROC insurance waiver.  (Minor releases are available for parent signature.)

>Prepare to be outdoors all day, dress and prepare accordingly.  Recommended: Sunscreen, hats, non-alcoholic drinks - Summer weather can cause sunburns and dehydration quickly. Be ready.

>It is recommended for tires be inflated to higher than normal pressures, not to exceed the max PSI as written on the sidewall - it is uncommon for tires to break from the bead of the rim, but it is a good idea to inflate street tires as a precaution.

>All loose objects, floor mats, etc. must be removed. Spare tire is not required to be removed, but it must be fastened in if not removed.  Battery must be secure!
