Washington DC Region of SCCA is proud to offer its members events in various types of racing disciplines, including: Club Racing, AutoCross, RallyCross, Road Rally, Track Days and Time Trials.
 


Club Racing
The WDCR is proud to host the Mid-Atlantic Road Racing Series (MARRS) since 1976, it is one of the largest and most successful club level racing programs in the U.S.

 

Solo (AutoCross)
Solo (also known as AutoCross) is a timed competition that emphasizes car control and driver skill in a low risk environment. It is one of the most popular entry level Motorsports events, with hundreds of events being put on each month across the country. Cars are timed while driving as fast as possible through a course defined with pylons (traffic cones), with each cone knocked over or moved out of it's marked box a 2 second penalty is added to the drivers time. Safety is paramount, with lots of room for mistakes and usually just cones being hit, AutoCross is a great way to get into driving your car at the limit.

 


RallyCross is the most widespread and readily accessible form of extreme off-road Motorsport! Imagine a twisty and turning course laid out on a non-paved plot of land where the course is delineated by pylons (traffic cones). No trees, rocks or obstacles to ruin your day. Just having fun in the dirt!


 


Road Rallying is a contest of precision. Contestants follow a prescribed route at prescribed average (legal) speeds. Along the route, the contestants visit checkpoints where their passage is timed. Scoring is based on matching the speeds/times from checkpoint to checkpoint.


 


PDX (HPDE, Track Days)
Performance Driving eXperience (often referred to as: HPDE or Track Days) are instructor led in-classroom and on-track sessions where you can drive your car on a closed racing circuit as fast as you'd like. HPDE is a great way test your cars strengths and drive it they way the engineers intended it to be driven! 


 


Time Trials (TT, Club Trials)
Time Trials is a awesome blend of two disciplines: PDX and SOLO; Time Trials allows Advanced Drivers to compete against each other and the clock in a series of "hot lap" sessions on a closed circuit racetrack. Time Trails is the ultimate combination of precision, strategy and high speed fun!
