Therefore, this year we are asking for participants to register for several key volunteer positions. - Please select one item from the "Event Options" section; see descriptions for details. -Please disregard the item cost, as we are using this section as a work around. Please help us run a successful event by: 1. Pay prior to 9 pm the night prior to the event to avoid an additional $15 day of registration fee 2. Review the Tech Sheet and double check the “Registration Details” for accuracy - This form will be attached to your confirmation and is available at the PCA Chicago Region website 3. Bring your completed Tech Inspection Form with you to the event. - UTQG: This is the wear rating for your tires. This can be found on the sidewall of your tires. If you are new to autocross, the Tech Inspector can help you find where this is located. - Make sure the positive battery terminal is completely covered with tape. This ensures that nothing can come in contact with the terminal. The PCA Chicago Autocross program reserves the right to deny participation to vehicles with excessive exhaust noise (95 db). 4. Park your vehicle NEXT to the vehicle that arrived just before you (e.g.. not in the middle of the parking lot). We would like to have all cars parked in the order of arrival. This significantly improves the flow of our Tech Inspection process and helps us start our event on time. 5. Empty everything out of your car immediately after parking so that it can be Tech inspected. Anything that is loose must be removed from your car, including floor mats. 6. Complete and place the Tech Inspection Form under your windshield wiper. This indicates that you are ready to have your car inspected. 7. Wait for your car to be inspected. After obtaining the event sticker and signed Tech Inspection Form from the Tech Inspector. Apply sticker to the front top section of your windshield on the drivers side. 8. Proceed to the registration table with your signed Tech Inspection Form. 9. Check in and look for your pre-printed name on the PCA Waiver. 10. Apply your assigned car number to both sides of your vehicle. Numbers should be 8” or larger (if you do not have pre-printed numbers use blue painters tape) 11. Relax, mix and mingle, walk the course or help setup the course until the drivers meeting. 12. And most importantly....Have Fun! Participants are broken out into three groups, Drive, Rest, Work Drive: 1. This group will start driving at 9:30. 2. After your driving session is over, you will rest. Rest: 1. This group will start the day resting while the first group (Drive) runs the course at 9:30 2. Use this time to eat lunch, but please be ready to work 3. As the Drive group is finishing please keep an eye on the staging line for the last car to complete the course. 4. After the last car has run and the course is “cold” promptly replace the workers on the course. This enables us to quickly get the next driving group on the course Work: 1. This group will work the course when we start at 9:30. 2. Please grab a safety vest before heading out to a workstation 3. Aside from the Starter there are no pre-assigned work stations. Fill in any work station with less than two workers. We also need one worker to hand out timing slips. 4. After the session is over and you are done working it is your turn to drive. We will cycle through the process of again in the afternoon. Drive, Rest, Work. We will cover this again in the drivers meeting and address any questions that you may have.
