Car Classifications

No motorcycles, karts, trucks, SUVs, or other high center of gravity vehicles are allowed. The final decision on driver and vehicle participation and classification is at the discretion of the CCA Competition Director.

The CCA uses the car classifications listed below. Note that the CCA is no longer with the NCCC and our events will not get you NCCC points. We will instead have our own awards for fastest times and overall participation.

C4 Any C1-C4 Corvette
C5 Any base C5 Corvette
C6 Any base C6 Corvette
C7 Any base C7 Corvette
CZ Any C5-C7 Grand Sport, Z06 or ZR1 Corvette
OF Open Class non-Corvette Front Wheel Drive Cars
OA Open Class non-Corvette AWD Cars
ORD Open Class non-Corvette, Domestic Rear Wheel Drive Cars
ORF Open Class non-Corvette, Foreign Rear Wheel Drive Cars

If there is only one participant in any given car classification, then they will be merged in with another classification as follows:

  • C4 C5
  • C6 C7 CZ
  • ORD ORF OF OA

Technical Inspection & Helmets

All drivers must be 18 years of age and will be responsible for their car to be technically ready and will have to work the heat opposite any heat they drive in. All drivers and passengers will be required to sign a waiver and receive an event wristband at registration/check-in.

All drivers must wear an approved helmet. THe helmet must be at least DOT, however SA2010 or newer is preferred. If you do not have a helmet, you can borrow one the day of the event. CCA members can borrow helmets for free and non-members can add all-day helmet rental for $5 when pre-registering online or rent one onsite for $5 cash.

A technical inspection form (below) must be completed and signed by all pre-registered participants prior to registration/check-in at the event. If you forget your tech sheet or register the day of the event, you will have to tech your car and complete a tech form prior to going through tech inspection.

Print, inspect your car, and bring this completed and signed form with you to the autocross event. No motorcycles, karts, trucks, SUVs, or other high center of gravity vehicles are allowed. All inspection items must pass to participate. The final decision on driver and vehicle participation is at the discretion of the CCA Competition Director.

Technical Inspection Form

Worker Assignments

All drivers will be required to work the event. You will be required to work the heat(s) opposite the heat(s) you are running. The Worker Chief will assign you to a course location for the heat you are working.

  • Competition Director - Responsible for soliciting CCA member volunteers, notification of their assignments, overall running of the event.
  • Safety Chief - The CCA Competition Director or their designate. Duties include course design safety, setup of event such that all participants, workers, spectators are not at risk of danger from the running of the event. Additionally, to perform the drivers meeting covering all points listed in the drivers meeting section.
  • Worker Chief - A CCA member volunteer or someone designated by the Safety Chief. This task can be done while cars are going to grid. Workers will assemble with the Chief prior to the heat starting and they will check each person off on the list as they are assigned course locations. First worker assigned to each station should receive a radio to be used at that course location. Prior to course going hot and all workers are in place, Worker Chief will perform radio check to all stations.
  • Tech Inspectors - Two CCA member volunteers and two Lincoln Tech students. Each tech folder will contain a sheet with what needs to be reviewed to pass tech. Upon approval, a tech sticker will be placed on the windshield and tech form from driver will be kept in folder. If a car fails tech, driver can fix the problem and come back to tech before the start of the heat.
  • On-Course Workers - All participating drivers will be required to work the event. At each of the on-course stations there will be a radio, red flag, extra cones and a fire extinguisher. One worker will handle the radio and red flag. Proper radio use requires saying station number followed by remark. Remarks can be number of cones or car going off course (i.e. "Station 1 one cone" or "Station 1 off course" or "hold start"). Other worker(s) at each station are responsible for replacing cones that get knocked off. Workers need to run to where cone(s) need to be reset. DO NOT WALK, the course is hot. Fire extinguishers are to be used only in the case of an actual fire. No use of cameras or cell phones for photos or video is allowed by course workers.
  • Grid Worker - Normally a CCA member volunteer will do this. Using a list, each car in the heat will be directed to their selected grid position. Check driver/passenger for event wristband(s). Check windeshield for colored dot tech sticker. On a flow basis, cars will be sent to the start line. Remember to tell drivers to return to parking lot after their last run.
  • Starter - Preferably this is a CCA member volunteer. Bring each car up to start line short of timing equipment. Radio to Timing what car number is on the line. Once the course is clear of the previous car and all course workers have finished any on course cone replacements, send next car out onto course.
  • Stop Box - As each car completes course, remove gate cone to allow them to return to grid or the parking lot if last run. If they hit any cone in the gate, report the run as a DNF to Timing.
  • Spectator Control - Someone positioned near the gate by registration to keep spectators from straying onto the course area. The only exception would be to use porta-potty facilities.

Timing & Scoring

Timing is electronic and all times will be shown live and on a large display near the end of the course as well as on the website which can be viewed on any computer or mobile device. Live Timing & Scoring

# Cones Each upright cone knocked down or displaced from its outlined box is a 2 second penalty.
A "did not finish" (DNF) is given when a cone in the start or stop box is knocked down or displaced from its outlined box or if the driver fails to safely complete all course elements in the prescribed sequence (is "off course").
A "rerun" is usually given in the event of unfavorable circumstances outside of the driver's control. For example, a timing fault, a course that is not properly reset or cleared before the run, or in the event the run is prematurely stopped for safety or other reasons.
