Classes will be separated by STOCK, PREPARED and RACING designations and generally follow the PCA classifications.  SA will be STOCK A CLASS with 924, 931, 924S, and normally aspirated 2.5L 944’s.  PA will be those cars in the PREPARED class.  SB will be STOCK B CLASS with 951, 944 2.7L, 944S, 944S2 and 968’s.  928’s will also run in CLASS B.  PB will be PREPARED B CLASS cars.  RA will contain race cars that fall into the A class, RB for race cars that fall into the B class.  OUTLAWS, LSx and Audi Conversions, etc. are welcome and will be classified in the RACE classes.  As the season progresses, there may be changes made to the classifications.

So what is STOCK vs. PREPARED?  Stock is just what it sounds like – stock as delivered from the dealership when new.  Anything that is not as delivered will be considered PREPARED, including tires with UTOG ratings under 200, aftermarket shocks, bigger sway bars – you see where this is going.

Florida Citrus Region Autocross Events are normally held at the Lake County Sheriff’s Office Training Facility at 130000 Frankies Road in Tavares.  This facility has a large flat paved area for our events.  Partnered with the Martin Sports Car Club, the layouts are well planned with electronic timing and a variety of layouts.  When there are scheduling issues, the club has used the Orange County Convention Center parking area for an occasional alternative site.
