• What do I do first when I get to the track?

First thing to do is register. Everyone at the track will need to sign a waiver and get a wristband. Follow the signs to find the registration area. You can then cruise through the paddock, ask questions if you like, or find a spot to watch the racing.

 

• What are all those different cars out there?

SCCA has a lot of different classes. Since there is only enough time to run five groups each day, classes with similar performance are combined. There is a handout available at Registration that gives a brief description of the various classes.

• OK, I’ve watched some events, now I want to get involved. How?

Glad you asked. SCCA is a club; as such, we are dependent on club members to put on our events and to conduct club business. Those people you see on the track flagging the event are all volunteers. The same goes for the emergency crews, timing & scoring, technical inspection, etc. First step is to join SCCA. Fill out a Membership Form. Once you have joined the SCCA you can Click Here for more information about working at an event.

• How do I get started racing?

You will need to complete a 2-day SCCA driver’s school to get your novice permit. Please call 661-764-5945 for more information.

SCCA has strict requirements for a competition license, mostly involving safety. While the initial requirements to race with SCCA may be more involved than some other forms of racing, we take great pride in the caliber of our competitors and the safety record of our organization.

Some tracks charge a “Gate fee”. This fee does not go to Cal Club.
