This event was cancelled Mar 24, 2020. Can we show you some more events nearby?

2020 NER PCA Autocross School  

Sponsored by Conway Autoworks

This event has been canceled as of 24 March 2020 and all fees for those who registered prior to cancelation will be refunded.

NER's Autocross School is for novice drivers ONLY!  If you have previously attended more than 4 autocrosses, you must obtain special permission to register! 

Attendance is capped at 48 and the event is likely to sell out, first come, first served.

Attendees at the Autocross School will all receive FREE participation in one 2020 Autocross event as an impetus to experience the camaraderie and excitement of actual competition. Simply use the discount code AXSCHOOL2020 (case sensitive) when signing up for your first autocross event after the Autocross School.

Helmets - Effective immediately, due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, loaner helmets will no longer be available until further notice. You will therefore need to bring your own helmet for your personal use only.  Helmets with a SNELL 2010 or later rating are required.  Snell types M (motorcycling), K (kart racing), and SA (competitive auto sports) are all acceptable.  Helmets certified by the FIA are also permitted.

We are taking a new approach to the Autocross School this year to maximize student driving time and engagement between students and the instructors.  The three morning exercises will include a slalom, a figure-eight, and offset clamshells with one instructor assigned to a pair of students for all three exercises to provide increased instruction and feedback on the students' driving.  The afternoon will consist of 4 - 5 student runs on a full autocross course with the option of letting your instructor drive to demonstrate the propoer line through the course.  While attendance at the school is not requisite for attending events during the season, it is highly recommended. Regardless of whether you intend to autocross or not, this is a fabulous introduction to the art of driving at a fraction of the price of most schools of its kind. Teenage drivers are encouraged to attend. Licensed teens (full license, not a permit) under the age of 18 must provide a signed waiver and have at least one parent present throughout the course of the event.  For more information, please contact the registrar.

You must be a novice to attend this school.  Please don't sign up expecting a Test n' Tune.

What is Autocross?

Autocross is a sport in which you navigate your car through a defined course of pylons faster than your competition. Autocross courses are set up using soft orange traffic pylons which will not damage your car. Events are run at speeds usually between 40-65 MPH, usually in second gear. Unlike some other venues, we are extremely fortunate to have access to one of the premier autocross venues in the Northeast. Where many clubs are consigned to parking lots, we are privileged to be able to design courses that regularly exceed 1.25 miles in length with runs lasting well over a minute.  You'd be amazed at how much excitement can be packed into 60 seconds.   

Autocross is not only a "performance driving event", but a safe way to learn how to drive your car at its limit. You not only learn how to handle your car at speeds that you drive daily, but you also:

  • Gain confidence in your driving ability.
  • Learn the limits of your car's tire adhesion
  • Learn the limits of your car's brakes
  • Learn correct seating, hand, and feet positions

Autocross is a great way to exercise your driving skills in a safe environment. For anyone that would like assistance, there will be instructors available to work with you at all events. Each autocross has a different and unique course design and will undoubtedly provide you with a fun driving experience. Finally, Autocross is a social gathering of new and old friends and LOTS OF FUN!!!  

Who is eligible?

You must have participated in fewer than 4 autocrosses.

Price:   $60
