Aug 20th Autocross @ Colorado Air & Space Port
Aug 20 all-day

When: August 20, 2022

Registration is now open: msreg.com/NoConesOfShameAX

For August, we present the “No Cones of Shame” autocross, with this event’s charity featuring the Front Range German Shepherd Rescue, dedicated to rescuing and re-homing purebred GSDs.

Are you familiar with Autocross?  Autocross is a performance driving experience conducted in a safe environment at relatively low speeds (2nd gear).  You will not hurt your car and more importantly you will not hurt yourself.  Autocross is a lot fun and provides small doses of adrenaline rush that will keep you smiling for days. You will gain additional confidence in your driving ability, learn the limits of your car’s braking capabilities, practice correct seating, hand, feet and vision positions, as well as push and perhaps exceed the limits of your tire’s adhesion capabilities. 

By the way, autocross is a huge social event and a great time to meet new club members and visit with friends.

If you can volunteer to assist the chair in setting up the course and other activities to make this a successful event please contact us!

Club Racers REGISTER HERE

Join us for a great weekend of competitive racing in beautiful Colorado on a challenging 2.55-mile track with rolling terrain that provides over 70 feet of elevation change!

Welcome to RMR’s combined Club Race and HPDE. Club racing is one of PCA’s premier driving events with 26 Club Races held this year and spanning coast to coast. The very first PCA Club Race was hosted by the Rocky Mountain Region in 1992 at Second Creek racetrack. Members of the Rocky Mountain Region take pride in this historic event. The Region has run the race at Second Creek, at Pueblo Motorsports Park and now at High Plains Raceway.

NOTE: The HPDE event is in conjunction with the National Club Race being held the same weekend.  Only experienced drivers are allowed to participate. To qualify for the 2022 Rocky Mountain Thunder HPDE you need to have:

  • If local to RMR,
    • You have driven in at least two RMR/AMR HPDE events in the last two seasons
    • You have driven in at least one event at High Plains Raceway
  • If an out-of-town DE participant
    • You are an HPDE instructor or an intermediate-advanced driver having driven solo for at least 4 days on at least 2 different tracks
    • You can provide a track driving history and/or reference contacts with your local club’s chief driving instructor

Shared-driver cars will be allowed provided that one driver has previously run in the Expanded Passing run groups (check with the HPDE Chief Driving Instructor for permission).

We will have two HPDE run groups. The “Red” run group, for instructors and expert level drivers, will utilize PCA’s “expanded passing” protocol where passing is allowed most anywhere on track with a point-by.  The “Blue” run group, for advanced and intermediate level drivers, will utilize conventional passing only on the longer straights with a point-by.

DE drivers are also invited to participate in the HPR open-lapping day on Friday.
HPDE REGISTER HERE

On-Site Tires will be at the track Friday through mid-day Sunday. 

If water is needed for any reason other than individual bottled drinking water, participants should be prepared to bring it to the track.

PCA Clubracing COVID protocols

Thankfully, COVID-19 restrictions have been relaxed, however, we recommend that all occupants of vehicles participating in lunchtime charity rides be either 1) same household members, or 2) “fully vaccinated” (e.g., 2 weeks after vaccination regimen completed).  Always feel free to use “social distancing” and masks as you see fit and comfortable.  Hand sanitizer, masks and wipes are freely available.  Of course, COVID-19 restrictions could change so stay informed.
