Registration is almost open!


Recommended Posts

Registration is almost open for our Fall series!  It opens on 9/4 @8pm

Registration link: http://msreg.com/az2020fall1 
SCCA Waiver: https://azsolo.speedwaiver.com/
Event Details: 

However, with everything else that's going on in the world, there's going to be some changes till further notice.  Please read through these, as there is some important info about the next couple events.

Please note the follow changes for this event:

  • Masks will be required, except while driving.  If you don't bring a mask, you won't be able to participate.
  • Only pre-registered drivers will be allowed on site.  This means no spectators or guests!  Any non-drivers will be turned away and not allowed on site.
  • There will be no onsite registration for this event.
  • There will be no time only runs for this event.
  • A and B groups will run in the morning, C and D will run in the afternoon.  If you are in C or D group, you can not show up on site till noon.  You will be turned away if you show up before then.  Gate open at 7am for morning run groups.
  • We will not be providing loaner helmets, you must bring your own Snell approved helmet with a 2005 or newer rating.
  • Water will not be provided on site, so please plan accordingly to bring your own.  This has been a hot summer, and our first event will be hot still I'm sure.
  • There will be no food vendors on site, so please plan accordingly
  • Special processes will be in place for waiver.  I will update this post with updated information as I can.
  • If your car does not have a sound sticker already, you MUST register in either A or B group, there will be no sound tests in the afternoon.
  • Instructors will not be available at this event.
  • We will be providing ways to sanitize equipment between run groups to protect workers the best we can 

So the slightly longer version, due to the limit of gatherings being 50 people or less, we are running the event in 2 sessions, a morning and afternoon session.  Morning session will consist of run groups A and B, the afternoon session will be run groups C and D.  Each run group will be 25 drivers, putting us at our 50 person cap.  This is a first come, first serve event, so don't wait to sign up if you want a spot!  We will keep a wait list, so if spots open up we will be contacting the next person in line.  We will open the afternoon session up at noon, so afternoon session drivers won't be allowed on site till then.

I know this is a lot of change, but the Steering Committee feels this is the best way for us to move forward and host events.  Hopefully we can lift some of these restrictions soon and get back to events as normal, but please bear with us for now.  If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask.  

See everyone soon!

Is there any idea when spectators will be allowed back? I have to say we have been waiting a long time for this and prepped the car for this just to be disappointed that we cant all go. What is the policy on having two drivers for one car during this time? Is it still open as long as we pay for both drivers?

This morning I have been researching State, Maricopa County (now in the moderate category) and Litchfield park restrictions.  While there is no exact equivalent to our events, the closest is outdoor public pools.  I see no requirement to limit occupancy to 50 people.  The only real requirement is to maintain 6 feet separation and/or masks.  Some disinfection recommendations, etc.  Why are we planning a 50 person limit?

On August 10th, the following was issued.  A short time later, Maricopa county was declared to be in the moderate range.  According to this:


Upon reopening, all industries must implement the safety protocols and guidelines prescribed by ADHS and must submit an attestation form stating they are in compliance. The attestation form shall be posted in a visible location in the facility. Additional details can be found in the ADHS COVID-19 Guidance for Businesses.

Arizona Department Of Health Services


Phased Reopening Plan For Paused Industries

News Release

August 10, 2020

Plan Includes Data-Driven Benchmarks, Phased Reopening, And Requirements To Mitigate The Spread Of COVID-19

PHOENIX⁠ — The Arizona Department of Health Services (ADHS) today announced public health recommendations for the eventual safe reopening of paused businesses in the state of Arizona.

On June 27, Governor Ducey issued Executive Order 2020-43 “Pausing of Arizona’s Reopening.” This paused the reopening of several specific industries with operations that are considered by public health to have a high-risk of spreading COVID-19, specifically gyms and fitness centers, bars and nightclubs, waterparks and tubing, and movie theaters. It also limited indoor and outdoor gatherings to no more than 50 people. Since this pause, Arizona has seen a decline in its percent positivity, an increase in hospital capacity, and an improvement in other indicators. On July 23, that order was extended, with a review every two weeks.

ADHS has been working with several of these industries on guidelines for an eventual reopening and is recommending the following plan based on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidance, the White House Coronavirus Task Force metrics, and expert advice from the medical and public health community. The benchmarks are classified into minimal, moderate, and substantial transmission categories as defined by the CDC. Using public health data to inform these benchmarks, Arizona is currently in the substantial transmission phase. 

Upon this initial two-week review, ADHS advises keeping these restrictions in place for the time being, but is providing the following metrics for industry leaders and businesses to understand when a general reopening could be considered. Businesses have the opportunity through the attestation process for review of individual circumstances in the event that they are denied the ability to reopen for public health reasons.


All three of the following benchmarks must be met for 14 days, with a 12-day reporting lag period to move from a higher transmission phase to a lower one.


Phased Reopening


Mitigation Requirements

Upon reopening, all industries must implement the safety protocols and guidelines prescribed by ADHS and must submit an attestation form stating they are in compliance. The attestation form shall be posted in a visible location in the facility. Additional details can be found in the ADHS COVID-19 Guidance for Businesses.

A dashboard available at azhealth.gov/businessCOVID19 indicates whether counties meet the recommended benchmarks for reopening of gyms, movie theaters, waterparks, tubing venues, and bars. Data on the dashboard will be updated weekly on Thursdays.

OK, I called the Arizona Covid-19 helpline....1-844-542-8201.....and had an extended conversation with one of their specialists. I described our autocross activity with her in great detail, and mentioned the space we occupy, a number of acres. I shared that we typically had around 150 attendees within that space.

She was attentive, and looked through lots of comparable guidelines, like hiking, and especially youth sports. See link. This was from the Governors current website.


In her view, given the space involved, we would be within compliance guidelines as long as social distancing and all the other preventive measures were followed. She saw no problem with numbers greater than 50.

So, I agree with Steve that the 50 person limit does not apply to our outdoor activity at this time. Social distancing and masks are a must.

Sadly, not this time. As fate would have it, this event and the one in Sierra Vista are on the same day. So, I had to choose. Much cooler in SV, first class concrete surface, and I’ve been attending their events for over 30 years.

I enjoy AMP, and the 50 car thing is mostly an inconvenience, but not a deal-breaker. Would gladly attend but for the date conflict.

For what it’s worth, the 50 person limit was mostly predicated on activities indoor or in enclosed spaces. Our kind of event did not really have a related umbrella to fall under. 

Carry on!

Ok, I'm registered in the group that I wanted.  Now, what about the various waivers.  Did the Region adopt the Speedwaiver for both SCCA and AMP?  Is there a Covid-19 Release of Liability form also required?  When I registered, I did not come across any speedwaiver options.  I remember that I had a link to Speedwaiver so, I went in my archives but, it is strictly for PCA activities.

Is there a SCCA Speedwaiver that we need to complete in order for our registration to be complete and touchless?

Just got registered.   I really like the afternoon option, used to do it back in the day when that was an option.

For the waiver, I'll just bring my own pen.   I think Motorsport has an option, just not sure if it is fully implemented.

What is the minimum number of entrants required to have an afternoon event to cover the necessary positions? Should the afternoon event come up shy, will morning session participants be shuffled to the afternoon to cover? We’re at 70 now, and probably climbing, but just wondering. Thanks
