WCMC AUTOCROSS

PRE-REGISTRATION OPENS TWO WEEKENDS BEFORE EACH EVENT.
PLEASE PRE-REGISTER IF YOU ARE PLANNING TO ATTEND.
PRE-REGISTRATION CLOSES THE WEDNESDAY BEFORE THE EVENT AT 8:00 PM.


COVID-19 RULES

Registration and event participants





For COVID-19 times, you must register/pay through motorsportreg.com. Not only will this lock in your spot, it helps maintain contactless registration.

Even walk-ups must have your credit card information correct/current in motorsportreg.com for contactless payment at the event.



Participation is capped at 75 attendees. Given this is an outdoor event with the opportunity to spread all attendees out and maintain social distance, WCMC believes we can safely run an event at this cap.

WCMC is not allowing spectators/guests to keep our group size low, to follow state and local guidelines.
 
Social distancing and masks



We are requiring social distancing and participants to bring their own masks, which are to be worn in accordance with state and local guidelines. If you are within 6 ft of other participants you will be expected to wear your mask covering your mouth and nose.







Work stations required to wear mask during entire work shift:
- Timing
- Starter
- Grid
- Waiver
- Score Board
- Other work stations will allow workers to spread out 6 ft or more.

 
Hand Washing and Sanitization


We are requiring participants to bring their own supply of; mask, hand sanitizer, sanitizer wipes, and any other sanitizing products.



For the equipment that needs to be shared (radios, safety flags, and timing equipment) we have sanitizer for those applications. Shared equipment will be sanitized before and after use by each participant

 
Participant health


We are heavily encouraging anyone who is sick, displaying symptoms, or was sick within the last 14 days to stay away from the event. We will also deny entry to anyone who is sick or displaying symptoms



We have eliminated many aspects from our event that cannot be modified to adhere to safety guidelines. As such, we are not allowing passengers, in-car instruction, use of loaner helmets, providing water from a shared cooler, or pretzels etc.



PREPAY
Pre-registration and Prepay will once again be handled on MotorSportsReg.com. If you have not already set up an account at MotorSportsReg.com, please do so now.

WHEN PRE-REGISTERING
- Use your current car number when you create your vehicle.
- If you do not use your correct number, we will correct it for you.
- If you don't know your number and you pick the wrong one, we will correct it for you.
- If you try to take someone else's number, we will correct it for you.
- If you don't have a number, and you pick someone else's number we will correct it for you.

IDENTIFY YOUR CAR
When adding your car to your account, please add WCMC to the start of your modifications list so we know which car in your garage section you are using with us. That will help us to make sure you are using the correct number for our events.

WHEN PRE-REGISTRATION OPENS
Pre-registration for each event will open two weeks before the event and close the Wednesday before the event at 8:00 pm Illinois time.

PRE-REGISTRATION WAITLIST
If you don't get pre-registered in time don't worry you still have options. An online waitlist will be started if preregistration fills before the scheduled close date. THIS WAITLIST IS ONLY GOOD UNTIL THE WEDNESDAY BEFORE THE EVENT AT 8:00 PM. If someone who preregistered cancels before 8:00 pm of the last Wednesday before the event, the first person from the online waitlist will be added to the event.

ONSITE WAITLIST
If pre-registration is still full (75 drivers) after preregistration's scheduled close date, arrive at the event at 8:00 am, visit the timing tent, and put your name on the onsite wait list at the event.

At 9:00 am we start removing Pre-Registered no-shows and adding drivers from the onsite wait list, first-come, first-serve. If you don't answer when called, because you are at your car, you are off doing something else, then you give up your spot in line and the next driver on the Onsite waitlist gets it. In past events several drivers have not shown up freeing their positions for drivers on the wait list. Once we reach 75 drivers the rest of the wait list cannot drive.

PRE-REGISTRATION CANCELATION
If you pre-registered and it turns out you will not be able to attend the event, you can cancel your registration before pre-registration closes through the MotorSportsReg.com website. If you don't get canceled before Pre-Registration closes, you will be charged for your registration unless there is a walk-up driver on the Onsite waitlist to replace you. Visit the Rules page for more information on our Cancelation Policy.

Why Autocross???
..."I consider (autocross) to be, arguably, the best place to learn car control"...
T.C. Kline, a well-known driver and car builder with over 20 years of autocrossing and road racing (both club and pro) experience.

..."The skills you learn and practice here; smooth transitions, enhanced braking, and skid correction, will have an immediate impact on improving the safety and skill of your street driving. Solo II is an excellent way to teach car control to young drivers in a safe environment"...

Event #8
Raindate

Boomers Stadium,
Schaumburg, IL

We fear today's forecasted heavy rain and thunder storms will cause everyone to gather under umbrellas or in canopies and cars to stay dry. This combined with COVID-19 does not make us feel we can run an event that is safe for everyone. Because of that we are canceling the 9/12/20 event, and turning the 9/13/20 event into a rain date points event…a rain date for our rain date LOL. This change will give us our expected total of 8 points events this year.

We are sorry for the loss of another event, but we feel it is in everyones best interest to make it easy to spread out and stay safe rather than huddle close under shelter.

Spaces are still available for the 9/13/20 event, and registration is still open if you are not registered yet.

We will see you tomorrow on what the forecast says is to be an awesome dry day. Well, if you trust the weather apps that is :D
