With the 2019 North Carolina Autocross Championship, the format has changed. Where as last year was a big two day event hosted at the club whose turn it was, the championship has returned to being a traveling series culminating in a 2 day championship event at the host club. The club cup will be decided on the 5 traveling series dates, and as such, we need people willing to drive out to these events. Those events are as follows:
- April 13th – CCR – Zmax Dragway
- May 11th – Tarheel – NCCAR (No Karts)
- June 9th – Triad – Dixie Classic Fairgrounds
- September 15th – HSCC – Franklin
- September 22nd – NCR – MCAS Cherry Point (Real ID or Passport Required)
To sign up for club affiliation, there is an event on MSReg that I’ll link below that’ll allow you to register for Highlands and earn points for all 5 events. You’ll only need to do this once, so go ahead and get it over with. We currently have 4 people signed up as representing Highlands, which is about 4 more than I expected to see. Points are awarded to the top 5 finishers for the club, so we need at least that, but I’d prefer to see as many as possible sign up in case someone has to bail out from an event.
If you have any questions about participating in this series, post them below or contact me directly and I’ll answer whatever I can or direct you to someone who would know.

I signed emily up too. We’re not able to attend the Tarheel event (and maybe not the cherry point). Does that matter?
curous: do only 5 people earn a club points at each event? In others words, do the other clubs have an advantage because they have more people? Are the points based on pax?

I believe it won’t matter, so long as we still have enough players in the game at each event. And yes, the top 5 finishers earn points for the club, so there shouldn’t be a benefit to clubs with lots of competitors other than they’ll always make their minimum. Yes, points are pax based. Bring the civic, not the miata, lol.

Sandi and I will do as many as we can. Cherry Point looks a bit out of reach.

As much as I don’t relish the thought of the drive to cherry point, I’ve heard it’s very much worth the trip.

Sandi and I went to the SCR event in Darlington this weekend and several people said it was worth the trip to the coast. We may try to plan a longer trip around that race.
