    FCA Autocross Test and Tune/Performance Drivers School - July 13, 2019

    Have you ever wanted to push your Ferrari to its limits safely? Are you a veteran open tracker or autocrosser that would like a few hours of seat time?


    If so, the first FCA Autocross and Performance Driving School is the event for you. It will be enjoyable for beginning drivers while providing the veterans with almost unlimited seat time and flexibility.


    This event will be administered by The Sports Car Club of America (SCCA) and conducted to their national level standards for our FCA members. The SCCA is the largest amateur motorsport organization in the country. This event will be offered in the form of a school, with available instructors for novices in your own car to show you the course and proper driving technique. Begin slowly and increase your pace and speed as the day goes on all while having the fun.


    The aspect of a competitive event will also be present as you perform your runs against a timing system. Drivers can choose to be competitive with their friends, learn from some of the best autocrossers, or simply have an opportunity to see what their vehicles are capable of in a relatively safe lower speed environment.
    Veterans will have an open course without any time or speed constraints. You may run the course once or ten times consecutively between breaks. Plan on at least 30-40 runs which is the equivalent to 10 single, traditional autocross events.


    Unlike most small and tight autocross courses, this one will have a wider flow and pace suited to our exotic cars. While your Ferrari will be very happy at this event, feel free to bring your other performance car if you’d like especially if it rains.


    This will be a special event as the SCCA will provide course workers so attendees will be driving only. No course work or picking up cones!


    We will also have tents for shade, a provided lunch and a social hour with music and refreshments after the driving is over.


    The event will take place July 13 at FedEx Field in Landover, MD.


    Cost is $190/person for FCA Members! The cost for non FCA Members is $210/person. FCA members may spectate for free.

    Due to the response from the first event, we are confirmed for our second Test and Tune on Oct. 12. Same details as above but we will have a free exotics/classics parking area for specators.

    As it turned out, our paddock became a pretty nice car show!
