    2. All participants in a PCA Club Race must hold a current PCA Club Racing License and be a competitor in good standing.

LICENSING PROCEDURES

    1. To obtain a PCA Club Racing License must submit the the PCA Club Racing Competition License Application to the PCA Club Racing National Committee (PCA Club Racing Committee and attend the PCA Club Racing School (Club Racing School). The PCA Club Racing Competition License Application is available from the PCA National Club Racing Program Coordinator (National Club Racing/CRPC) or download a copy using the link found on the Forms landing page.
    2. The PCA Club Racing Competition License Application provides two routes to obtaining a PCA Club Racing License

A. Provisional Application

1) Applicants with a current FULL competition race license with NASA, SCCA, IMSA, BMWCCA or equivalent sanctioning body or any vintage group that is a member of the Vintage Motorsport Council and recent race experience may apply to attend the PCA Club Racing School (Club Racing School). The required paperwork includes proof of a current PCA Membership, the completed and signed application form, the license application fee, a fully completed PCA Club medical form (no more than (12) twelve months old at the time of submittal), a copy of the applicant’s current license(s), and a list of a minimum of (6) six completed races in the past (24) twenty-four months with copies of the ‘official’ race results. A fully completed, properly signed and dated SCCA, BMWCCA, NASA or other equivalent sanctioning bodies Medical Form may be acceptable. Eligibility and equivalency will be determined by the PCA Club Racing Committee. Time trial licenses are not accepted. Applicants with an expired Full competition race license and/or no recent race experience should contact the Club Racing Office.

2) Upon approval of the application paperwork by the PCA Club Racing Committee and successful completion of the PCA Club Racing School, Provisional License status will be in effect for his/her first four incident free PCA Club Races (completed at a minimum of two PCA Club Race events). Completion of these four incident-free races is required within a two-year period. Performance will be carefully monitored at these races, and if satisfactory, the Provisional License status will be deleted and a Full PCA Club Racing License will be granted.

B. Rookie Application

1) Applicants without a current FULL competition race license and no prior race experience may apply to attend the PCA Club Racing School (Club Racing School). The required paperwork includes proof of a current PCA Membership, this completed and signed application form, the license application fee, a fully completed PCA Club Racing medical form (no more than (60) sixty days old at the time of submittal), a complete listing of track days within the past (24) twenty-four months which will include (12) twelve or more days of race track driving training and experience at driver’s education events, time trials, race schools or equivalent events and the required Certification of Experience and Ability from a PCA Region Chief Driving Instructor (or equivalent). Of the required (12) twelve or more days, a minimum of (6) six track days must be with a PCA (or equivalent) driver’s education event. Dates, locations, sanctioning body, Chief Instructor, Run Group data, and instruction status (e.g., signed off by instructor after the first two sessions) data should be noted. Eligibility and equivalency will be determined by the PCA Club Racing Committee.

2) Upon approval of the application paperwork by the PCA Club Racing Committee and successful completion of the PCA Club Racing School, PCA Club Racing Rookie License status will be in effect for his/her first four incident free PCA Club Races (completed at a minimum of two PCA Club Race events). Completion of these four incident free races is required within a two-year period. Each Rookie will be required to display a ‘rookie’ “X” on the rear deck lid or bumper, Performance will be carefully monitored at these races, and if satisfactory, the Rookie status will be deleted, a Full PCA Club Racing License will be granted, and the ‘rookie’ “X” on the rear deck lid or bumper may be removed.

    1. To maintain an active PCA Club Racing License a driver must have a current PCA Membership, submit the annual PCA Club Racing License Renewal Form and pay the annual PCA Club Racing License Renewal fee, be a competitor in good standing, provide a current medical form (eligibility and equivalency determined by the PCA Club Racing Committee) and compete successfully in four PCA Club Races within eighteen months. If a driver fails to fulfill these minimum requirements, he/she may be required to attend the PCA Club Racing Orientation Meeting prior to the next event entered.
    2. PCA Club Racing Licenses will be maintained by the PCA Club Racing Committee. All incidents and penalties will be tracked by the PCA Club Racing Committee, and a data base will be maintained on those drivers on probation or suspension.

CLUB RACING SCHOOL PROCEDURES

  1. Participation in the PCA Club Racing School will be approved by application as noted above.
  2. PCA Club Racing School participants will be required to have all the personal and car safety equipment as required by the PCA Club Racing Program Rules and Equipment Regulations; pre-School inspections will be for personal and car safety equipment.
  3. The PCA Club Racing School will be conducted in conjunction with the applicant’s first PCA Club Race and will be organized as follows:
  1. The PCA Club Racing Orientation Meeting, conducted by the PCA Club Racing National Steward (National Steward) for the race, which will focus on procedures for the PCA Club Racing School and detailed discussions of race driving etiquette, techniques, and on-track safety procedures.
  2. Registration and safety equipment inspection.
  3. Open practice and qualifying sessions. License candidates will practice and qualify with the regular race groups.
  4. Review of open practice session comments with each license candidate.
  5. Review of performance results with each license candidate.

PCA CLUB RACING PROGRAM

GENERAL REQUIREMENTS

    1. The PCA Club Racing Program is designed to be fun, safe and competitive. Good sportsmanship, honesty, and a sense of fair play should exist at all times. Details of the 2024 Points Championship are found in Appendix H.
    2. Two driver cars are allowed in PCA Club Racing events. The second driver in a two-driver car shall always be in a higher group and placed in a class. The only time that a car should be designated as “Exhibition” (EX) is when the only option is to move the second driver to a lower run group. The car number should be the same in both groups. The car must display both class markings.

DRIVER REQUIREMENTS

    1. Conduct that is inappropriate to the intent and spirit of the PCA Club Racing Program jeopardizes safety or results in dangerous or damaging situations will not be tolerated. In addition to the normal discretion of the National Stewards to deal with inappropriate and unsafe conduct during all Club Race sessions, the 13/13 rule will be in effect at all PCA Club Racing events and will be imposed for such conduct. Under this rule, the procedure for any incident which results in car damage is as follows:
  1. Any driver involved in an incident:
  1. If the car is not running or handling normally or appears to be unsafe the driver must immediately exit the track during the session and must immediately report to the Black Flag Station.
  2. If the car is running and handling normally and the driver determines the car to be safe the driver may complete the time on track but must immediately report to the Black Flag Station upon finishing the session.
  1. After reporting to the Black Flag Station, the driver will report to Medical. A driver may decline to report to medical and sign the section of the medical form indicating such. In either case, the driver must then report to the National Steward.
  2. The driver will not be allowed on the track until being cleared by the National Steward.
  3. The Steward may order a black flag for any car that, in his/her opinion, is in an unsafe condition.
  4. Failure to report to the Black Flag Station will result in a penalty in which timing/scoring will stop the track clock at the time of the incident.
  5. Any driver who, after having been involved in an incident, fails to report to the Black Flag Station during or at the end of the session or leaves the event without talking to the National Steward, may be presumed to be at fault.
  6. The National Stewards will collect and review all information relating to the incident, including corner worker and other observer reports, driver statements, and damage and incident reports from the PCA Club Racing National Scrutineers (National Scrutineers). In the case of an incident involving more than one car, the National Steward will make a determination of fault.
  7. Any driver who is found to be at fault in an incident involving more than his or her car will be:
  1. Placed on probation for a 13-month period by the National Steward. That probation period will begin at the time the Steward’s decision is made concerning fault in the incident. If the incident was not caused by a gross error in judgment and the driver’s attitude is determined by the Steward to be conducive to safe racing, the driver may continue to race in the event. The Steward’s decision is final concerning continued participation.
  2. If during this probation period the driver is involved in another “at fault” incident, his competition privileges will be immediately suspended for 13 months. Suspended drivers must petition for reinstatement to the PCA Club Racing National Chairman (National Chairman). Re-entry into the program will be at the discretion of the PCA Club Racing National Committee and the driver may be required to return on probation.
  3. Subject to more severe penalty should the seriousness of any incident warrant it
  1. Any driver who has received a 13/13 may be required to attend the PCA Club Racing Orientation Meeting prior to the next race in which they compete.
  2. Any driver who has been determined to be at fault and has received a 13/13 may request a review of the determination by written (or e-mail) request to the National Chairman within thirty days of the date of the incident. Said request should provide all documentation and/or justification as to why the determination should be reviewed.
    1. Only PCA Club Racing Program “licensed” drivers are eligible to register for an event. All competing drivers must be registered for the event and may only compete in the car and in sessions in which they are registered. Violations of this rule will result in the disqualification of all drivers in the registered car.
    2. During a qualifying session or race, cars entering the paddock area will be considered retired and will not be allowed to return to the track.

CAR REQUIREMENTS

Any modification not specifically listed is not allowed. In other words, if the rules don’t say you can do it – DON’T. The inclusion of prohibitions on certain modifications is to avoid self-serving interpretations and may not be used to infer that what is not prohibited is allowed.fication not specifically listed is not allowed. In other words, if the rules don’t say you can do it – DON’T. The inclusion of prohibitions on certain modifications is to avoid self-serving interpretations and may not be used to infer that what is not prohibited is allowed.

    1. Stock classes are based on factory published horsepower, torque, weight, gearing and racing performance in previous years of the program. All cars must conform to published figures when tested. The National PCA Stewards reserve the right to test any car for conformance.During a qualifying session or race, cars entering the paddock area will be considered retired and will not be allowed to return to the track.
    2. The Club Racing Technical and Rules Committee reserves the right, on one month’s electronic or other notice, to alter the published weights of any model in any class as best suits the competition needs of Club Racing.
    3. Only Porsche manufactured sports cars are eligible.
    4. Definitions of terms used in the rules:
  • Factory parts: Parts sold by Porsche as the stock parts appropriate for the specific car model and year.
  • OEM: Parts equivalent to the parts sold by Porsche as the stock parts appropriate for the specific car model and year, except that the parts are from the supplier that made the parts for Porsche.
  • Aftermarket: Parts from sources other than Porsche or OEM.
    1. Every racecar must have a transponder compatible with the PCA Timing & Scoring system installed.

COMPLIANCE REQUIREMENTS

  1. Any decisions of the National Stewards concerning safety, eligibility, acceptance, etc. are binding. Vehicles entered in the program must, in addition to meeting safety and classification rules and regulations, be presented in an attractive and eye pleasing manner. The National Stewards reserve the right to refuse to accept any vehicle which they feel does not “conform to the spirit” of the PCA Club Racing Program.
  2. In order to promote careful adherence by all competitors to the car classification and preparation rules, the National Stewards reserve the right to conduct impound and inspection of any cars at any time during the event; cars must be in compliance at all times. Cars found to be at variance with the class rules during the qualifying session will be denied their starting position and will be gridded at the back of the entire starting field for their race and may remain in the class only if the rules infraction has been corrected. If it is not possible to bring the car into compliance, it shall be reclassed into the appropriate class and gridded at the back of the entire field. Cars found to be at variance with the class rules at post-race impound will be denied their finishing positions. All variances will be noted in the vehicle Log Books.
  3. In order to receive a vehicle Log Book, and at their first race in each subsequent calendar year, drivers are responsible for presenting one fully completed Annual Technical Inspection Form that certifies compliance with the PCA Club Racing Rules, and one fully completed Vehicle Compliance Form. Both of the above forms become part of the vehicle Log Book. New Forms must also be completed if the vehicle changes class. Both Forms are available at https://pcaclubracing.org/forms/-licensing-forms. Log Books must contain two photographs of the race car, one a 3/4 front view, and one a 3/4 rear view, suitable for attaching inside the 5″ x 8″ Log Book.
  4. The National Scrutineer may conduct technical inspection of any car at any time during a PCA Club Race event. Upon request of the National Scrutineer, for compliance checking, all entrants shall allow downloading of any data accumulated during the event concerning the car.
  5. Cars, other than in the GT1-6 and GTP classes, are required to maintain stock data ports, to add power supplies for Club Racing in-car data systems and other compliance purposes, and for cars without them, to add a cockpit accessible tachometer signal connection. The connector types, sizes, and locations are found in Appendix K. Data from these ports, both on the track and at tech, are used in compliance checking.
  6. The vehicle Log Book must be kept within the cockpit and accessible at impound to the driver or to a scrutineer who is outside the car. If a car is found to have flagrant technical variations, the National Scrutineer will:
  1. Note the variation in the Log Book.
  2. Recommend to the National Steward that a “cheating” sanction be imposed. This sanction will be a 13/13 probation (see above). Further, the car will not be allowed to participate in another PCA Club Race until sufficient documentation is presented to the PCA Club Racing National Scrutineer (National Scrutineer) to indicate that the variations have been corrected.
  3. Upon review of the National Scrutineer’s recommendation, the National Steward will render a decision on applying the sanction.
  4. Should the driver of a car under a 13-month probation be assessed another sanction, he will be assessed a 13-month suspension.
  1. Racers, if not willing to reuse existing gaskets or seals, must have replacements on hand so that valve and other engine covers may be removed as needed for rules compliance checking.

CAR NUMBER REQUIREMENTS

  1. All cars must display easily readable numbers (1 – 3 digits only) for identification. The numbers must be displayed on each side, the front, and the rear of the vehicle on a contrasting background. The front number shall be white, a minimum of 4 inches high, with a one-inch plain stroke, installed horizontally and located on the upper right side (from the perspective of the driver) of the windshield. If it is mounted on a banner, the background must have at least as much contrast as the windshield glass. GT and GTP cars without a windshield shall have the front numbers a minimum of 8 inches high, with 1-1/2 to 2-inch plain strokes on the hood, centered, horizontal, and against a highly contrasting background. Side numbers shall be at least 8 inches high with 1-1/2 to 2-inch strokes. Rear numbers shall be at least 4 inches high with a 1-inch stroke. Magnetic numbers must be securely taped in place. The PCA Racing logo must be displayed on both sides of the race car.
  2. All cars must have their class displayed front and rear in easily readable characters at least 4 inches high. Modified classes need display only the number and letter after the GT- (for example, “C3”). In all cases, if timing and scoring cannot read car numbers and class designation from their location, the competitor will be required to change those numbers/letters if he/she wants to be timed. PCA Club Racing National Sponsor logos may be required on all cars.
  3. GT1 – GT6 class cars running slicks (tires not DOT approved) must add an “R” after their class designation. This does not create a separate class but allows administration of the extra weight such cars must have, and to allow collecting performance data.
  4. All cars must display their minimum class weight, in at least 14-point font/type with black numerals on a white background, on the outer side of the driver’s side door above the door handle.

PCA CLUB RACING SAFETY

GENERAL REQUIREMENTS

  1. All cars must be comprehensively prepared and inspected prior to arrival at the track. It is the responsibility of the driver to ensure that his vehicle is safe and track worthy, and that he has the required personal safety equipment. At the track, all cars are subject to a tech inspection of all safety equipment and meet all the safety requirements of the PCA Club Racing Program.
  2. All required safety equipment must be installed and used in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions. Any vehicle deemed unsafe by the National Stewards will not be allowed to compete.
  3. All cars must have a tow hook, strap, or other suitable device in both the front and rear. It is recommended that the location of the tow hook allow for easy access in a gravel trap. It is highly recommended that the tow hook does not protrude beyond the bumper.
  4. Reverse gear may not be used in the hot pits except with the permission and under the supervision of a National Official.
  5. No one under sixteen years of age is allowed in the hot pit area. Long pants, short sleeve (at a minimum) shirts, and closed shoes are required in the hot pits. Where local rules or the National Steward requires, these restrictions may be applied to a delineated area on the “cold” side of the hot pit inner wall.
  6. The pit lane speed limit is 35 MPH. Violations other than during Enduros will be dealt with as the Steward sees fit.

DRIVER REQUIREMENTS

  1. Helmets must be certified in accordance with one of the following standards: Snell SA or SAH 2015, Snell SA or SAH 2020, FIA8859-15, 8860‐2004, 2010, 2018, or their successors, SFI 31.1, or BS6658‐85 type A/FR. Helmets expire at the end of the 10th year after the year of manufacture. Helmets must have the driver’s name on the rear and have the approved PCA Club Racing Inspection sticker displayed on the left side. It is recommended that helmets be replaced or relined after 5 years of actual use.
  2. Drivers of vehicles without full windshields or running without a top in place (e.g., Targas without the top on) are required to have a full-face helmet with shield in place at all times while on the track.
  3. A head and neck restraint certified as meeting the standards of either SFI 38.1 or FIA 8858 or its successor is required. There is no expiration date for head and neck restraints, but racers should consider replacing straps after five years of use.
  4. A one-piece approved fire retardant driving suit which meets or exceeds SFI 3.2A/5 or FIA 8856-2000 or 2018 or their successors is required. The suit may meet SFI 3.2A/1 if fire retardant long underwear is also worn. The display of the PCA Club Racing patch on the driving suit at every PCA Club Race is strongly encouraged. Driving shoes and gloves meeting SFI 3.3/5 or FIA 8856-2000 or 2018 or their successors are required. Fire retardant sox are required. Drivers with mustaches, beards, or long hair extending below the helmet must wear a fire-retardant balaclava.
  5. Drivers of open cars, cabriolets and cars with non-stock, non-metal roofs must use approved arm restraints. This does not apply to stock roofs on Targas, 914’s, or factory sunroofs. The arm restraint requirement does not apply to Boxsters equipped with the allowed aftermarket plastic top as long as a custom fabricated roof net, filling the halo area of the roll cage, is installed. Custom fabrication means that a template of the actual roll cage halo area has been sent to a manufacturer of SFI or FI A approved webbing goods, and that the product is appropriately constructed and attached to the halo bars on all four sides with webbing and metal buckles. The use of plastic tie wraps, plastic straps or elastic cords is not allowed.

CAR REQUIREMENTS APPLICABLE TO ALL CARS IN ALL CLASSES

  1. All cars are required to have a roll cage which conforms in design and materials as given in Appendix A. Exceptions to the roll cage requirement are A) GTP-class factory built prototypes which retain their original safety systems, and B) GT-6 class open-top 356s and rare or historically significant GT-6 class cars as approved by the PCA Club Racing Technical and Rules Committee.
  2. At a minimum, a 2-1/2 lb. or larger SFI, FIA, UL, or NFPA approved fire extinguisher capable of extinguishing B/C type fires, securely metal-to-metal mounted in the cockpit in a safe location convenient to the driver while seated and restrained is required. An on-board fire suppression system of equal or larger capacity may be substituted for a hand-held extinguisher, and is strongly recommended, and it should include external actuation in addition to driver actuation, and the external actuation must be on the cowl and be identified with the standard red circled E fire decal.
  3. An electrical cut-off is required, which can be either an externally accessible pull wire or externally mounted electrically operated switch. It is preferred that the cut-off switch be on the driver’s side. The location of the handle, pull, or switch must be indicated with the standard approved decal. The switch must disconnect the battery from all circuits except electrically operated on-board fire systems and must shut off the engine while it is running well above idle speed. (See Appendix C)
  4. All cars are required to have a dedicated one-piece race seat with routing for straps.
  5. Headrests, either integral with the seat or separate, are required. The headrest must extend above the midpoint of the back of the helmet on the vertical plane of the seatback with the driver in the driving position.
  6. All cars shall be equipped with a seat back brace, except as provided in Safety Rule 7 below, which is mounted securely to the roll cage/bar and rests firmly against the back of the seat. The seat construction must be compatible with the seat back brace and not pose a hazard to the driver. The portion that contacts a metal seat shall be a minimum of twelve square inches and bolted to the metal seat, and larger is suggested. The seat back brace for composite seats must have a minimum of thirty square inches contacting the seat back and must have 0.5” to 2” of high-density foam padding between the brace and the seat back. The seat back brace cannot be bolted to a composite seat unless the manufacturer has designed the seat to bolt to a brace. Seats constructed with a tube frame require a brace which is secured to the seat frame, not the back of the seat.
  7. There are two exceptions to the seat back brace requirement:
  1. If the seat is within 3” of the firewall, a seat back brace is not required but the area between the seat and firewall should be padded with high density foam. At a minimum, all roll cage bars which the seat could contact if it or the mount fails must have approved roll bar padding, but thirty square inches of padding to prevent concentrated loads from tubes is recommended.
  2. A seat back brace is not required in cars whose seat and mounting system comply with the requirements of Appendix I.
  1. Five, six or seven-point SFI or FIA approved competition harnesses are required and must be properly mounted in accordance with the manufacturer’s specifications and Appendix B. Strap material must be replaced no later than two years after the date of manufacture or no later than the expiration date on the harness if present (SFI) or no later than the expiration date on the harness (FIA). Harnesses cannot be mounted to the seat or seat rail. Mounting must be to the chassis backed by large diameter washers (if stock mounts are not used) or to the roll cage. No two harness straps can be attached to a single mounting bolt. No Y-type shoulder harnesses are allowed.
  2. All cars must be equipped with a metal firewall separating the driver compartment from any area exterior to the driver compartment below the level of the window bases (e.g., the engine compartment, the transmission compartment, the fuel tanks, exhausts, or just the ground under the car) capable of preventing the intrusion of fire, fluids, gasses, or debris into the driver compartment. All openings in the firewall, including those created by the allowed removal of stock components, must be closed with a metal cover mechanically fastened over the opening. Adhesives are not mechanical. The fuel sender opening in 924/944/968s must be covered with such a metal cover. Openings in firewalls for tubes and wires, if oversized, must be substantially closed with metal covers or commercial pass throughs, with any remaining small gaps and any holes no larger than 10 mm not closed with metal shall be plugged with high temperature sealants. Drain holes in the floor pan may be open when running in the rain.Caymans may duct air from the quarter windows (where ducting from those windows is allowed) or from the passenger compartment to circular openings in the factory location in the far rear corners of the rear trunk for cooling of supplementary radiators or otherwise. Fans may be used to force air through these allowed openings. If ducting is fabricated to penetrate the cover or sheet metal of the engine compartment, it must be capable of withstanding 1,500 degrees Fahrenheit, must use a metal fitting through the firewall, and can only draw cooling air from the right-side quarter window. Porsche approved ducting designed for Cayman factory race cars may also be used.

    Except as specified above, the requirement of metal does not apply to non-metallic parts which are stock, or to replacement of doors with composite doors where allowed by the class rules.

  3. Sunroofs must remain completely closed. Sunroof operating mechanisms must be electrically or mechanically disabled or disconnected with the sunroof locked in the closed position, and sunroof motors may be removed.
  4. Cabriolets must run with the soft top down or with the hardtop in place. Targa bodied cars and 914’s must run with the top in place. Targas and 914s with the top off, and cabriolets are classified as open cars (see Safety Rule 10).
  5. Except as otherwise specified, all cars will have both front door windows removed or down before being allowed to race and an approved window net must adequately cover the window opening area on the driver’s side (See Appendix D). “Adequate” means that the net covers all portions of the driver’s door window opening through which a hand or head of the driver, with the seat in the driving position, is likely to protrude outside the car in a crash. If a window net will adequately prevent the driver’s helmet from getting outside the car but not protect hands, the driver may race if arm restraints (both arms) are used in conjunction with the window net.

    Triangular window nets, as approved by FIA or SFI for sedan race cars, can be used without the necessity of arm restraints assuming that the net is mounted in accordance with the manufacturer’s specifications.  PCA Club Racing advises that the triangular nets without arm restraints do not provide equivalent protection as rectangular nets.  Racers choosing to use triangular nets without arm restraints acknowledge and accept this additional risk of injury.

  6. GTP class factory built or recognized prototypes may run with windows “up” in the configuration raced professionally and without a net if that was the rule when raced. GT, GTC3 and higher, or GTA cars may run with plastic side windows in place, with or without a sliding opening panel. For GTA and GTC3 and higher, the plastic window must be “as delivered” on the car from Porsche. For GT cars, the plastic window must be easily removable in an emergency and must have been designed, built and marketed for motorsports by a recognized manufacturer and approved by the PCA Club Racing Technical and Rules Committee (no “home-built” windows). Plastic door windows on these cars may be removed for ventilation, but removal of a driver’s door window means a complying window net must be used. If a plastic door window is replaced, it may be attached with rivets or other equivalent fasteners, but if so, attached on the driver’s door, a complying window net must be used.
  7. Floor mats must be removed.
  8. All hubcaps and center caps must be removed.
  9. Lug nuts, lug bolts, and wheel studs must be steel or titanium, with engagement at least equal to the diameter of the thread.
  10. The use of overly wide spacers which place higher than normal vertical loads on spindles and bearings is a safety hazard and will, therefore, not be allowed.
  11. All oil lines on the pressure side of the oil pump(s) must be thread-on connections equal to or better than the factory, i.e. No slip-on oil lines to coolers, etc. Plastic connectors for lines which convey liquids may be replaced with metal connectors.
  12. Steering wheels containing wood are prohibited.
  13. Tinting of windows is not encouraged and in no case may tinting be any darker than that supplied by the factory.
  14. Cars must have two working brake lights, at least as bright as stock. Corner workers are instructed to notify the National Steward if a car has less than two brake lights on the track. If the car has no brake lights, it will be black flagged. If car has only one brake light while on track, the National Scrutineers will attempt to notify the driver after the session.
  15. Cameras or other instrumentation mounted on the exterior or protruding beyond the bodywork must be secured with a tether of suitable strength so that the device, if it has come loose, will have minimal ability to flail around, and in no case will be able to hit a tire or the ground or break the tether.
  16. All cars must be equipped with a video recording device capable of recording what is in the driver’s forward field of vision and equipped with a card or other means of showing the video on a computer screen after a session. A second camera or lens pointing backward is highly recommended. It is the driver’s responsibility to understand the operation of the device, to ensure that the device is aimed properly, has adequate power and memory to record the session, and that it is turned on when the car leaves the grid.
  17. Drones are not allowed at Club Races.
  18. Any tire deemed unsafe by the National PCA Stewards will be disallowed. No car may enter the track with cord showing on any tire.
  19. Ballast, where allowed, must be securely bolted to the chassis.
  20. An FIA or equivalent rain light is required to be turned on when on track in conditions wet enough to reduce visibility.

SAFETY RECOMMENDATIONS AND ALLOWANCES

  1. Metal tire valve stems and valve stem caps, or rubber valve stems with metal valve stem caps and valve stem supports, are recommended.
  2. Drivers of water-cooled cars should be aware that anti-freeze is a slippery substance and consideration should be given to using water only, a reduced concentration of anti-freeze, or an anti-freeze substitute.

  3. Fuel cells are allowed in all classes and strongly recommended for Modified Class cars. When mounted in Stock, Prepared, SPC, GTB, or GTC cars, the fuel cell must be in the stock gas tank location.
  4. A single opening (port) dry break filler may be installed in the stock gas cap location under the gas cap door, and modifications may be made to the fuel filler tube leading to the gas tank, and for ancillary equipment required by the system. If a fuel cell is installed, it may include any dry break system attached directly to the fuel cell and accessible only by opening the hood. GT and GTA cars have no limitations on how a dry break is installed on the car or accessed if it is safe.
  5. Exterior window clips and straps are allowed to ensure retention of the windshield and rear glazing.
  6. The base of the steering knuckle below the strut attachments on 924, 944 and 968 based cars may be machined, modified, gusseted, and otherwise strengthened to integrate the pin which attaches to the spherical bearing in the A arm ball joint into the knuckle, as long as there is no dimensional change between the lower ball joint center and the knuckle attachments, attachment plane, and spindle.
  7. 924s, 944s, and 968s, in every class, may add a bolted or welded flat plate to the front firewall where the clutch master cylinder attaches in order to reinforce the area where cracks may develop due to the master cylinder mounting. This modification may serve no other purpose.
  8. All cars not in the GTC class with ABS systems are allowed to install the following modifications:
  1. A reset switch may be installed.
  2. The brake booster diameter may be reduced to achieve a 3.5:1 ratio with part number 996.355.923.90, the master cylinder bore may be increased to 27mm with part number 997.355.910.30, or both, or any other 996/997 Porsche parts which change nothing related to their performance other than to the allowed ratio or bore. This option is only available in models where the changed parts have 996 or 997 part numbers and will directly bolt in without modification.
  3. PSM may be disabled by disconnecting its multi-pin connector.
  4. Every ABS whose PWIS programming includes an option for a PCCB flash may use that flash.
  1. 911s with door window frames may remove the wing window glass and the support upright to its rear. The wing window may be replaced with plastic.
  2. Any model which came with an air-oil separator may replace it with any air-oil separator.
  3. Unless otherwise restricted by class rules, cable shift cars any use any substitute cable and cable end.
  4. Quick release steering wheel hubs are allowed.
  5. Brake caliper piston material is free in all classes.
  6. It is recommended that air bags be disabled or removed.
  7. Starting with the 981 and 991 models, Porsche has used a cast aluminum front shock tower. Excessive loading of the front suspension can cause the aluminum to fracture. These and subsequent models with the aluminum front shock towers in a Stock or Improved class may make the following modification: Install the Porsche front strut plate reinforcements right 991-504-284-8A and left 981-504-283-8A, successor Porsche parts, or an aftermarket equivalent such as the SP Motorsports strut tower support bracket kit, together with such fasteners and spacers as needed. These plates bolt onto the top of the shock tower and connect to the shock tower in two additional places.

PCA CLUB RACING FLAGS

The following flags will be standard in PCA Club Racing:

Green: Start of session or race, course is clear.

Yellow: Caution. Stationary – hazard ahead, no passing. Waving – Danger, slow down safely, no passing.

NOTE: You may not pass after the yellow flag until after the reason for the flag has been passed and you are sure that there are no further incidents between that point and the next flag station which is not displaying a yellow flag.

Double Yellow: Caution. No passing, full course yellow. Form up on the lead car and resume racing with green flag at start/finish in single file.

White: Emergency, service or slow moving vehicle on the course.

Blue/Yellow Diagonal: Information flag. Competitor may be trying to pass you. Check your mirrors.

Black/Orange Disc: Your car may have a mechanical fault. Stop at the Black Flag impound and see the National Scrutineer.

Yellow/Red Stripes: Slippery surface or debris on the track.

Black: (closed/furled – from starter’s stand and/or Black Flag station) Warning. You are driving over-aggressively or unsafely.

Black: (open – from starter’s stand and/or Black Flag station) – Stop at Black Flag impound and see National Scrutineer.

Black: (open – from all corners) – Session is halted. Reduce speed safely, no passing, stop racing. Pull into hot pits and follow directions. No work on cars allowed until flag condition is green during a race. Cars may pull out of line to pit wall but no work on car until green. During PRACTICE may work on car and go to back of field to reenter track.

Red: Pull safely to the side of the track and await directions. Any racer who ignores a Red Flag Condition, continues to race and/or pass other cars may be dismissed from the Event.

Checkered: Finish of session or race.

To qualify as finishing the car must be running on track when the leader crosses the finish line and subsequently cross the finish line timing loop on track or in the hot pit if it is possible at that track. Failure to do so will result in a DNF.

Any racer whose car is reported passing under a Yellow Flag condition during a race will have the car’s number placed on a whiteboard at the hot pit black flag station or other location in the hot pit which the car must pass to enter the paddock. Drivers whose car number is on this board have 30 minutes to see the steward with their video and other evidence to show that the report of passing was incorrect. If a driver does not persuade the steward that the report was in error, a one lap penalty will be assessed. If a driver fails to report to the steward, a one lap penalty will be assessed.

Any racer who ignores a Black Flag during a race will be assessed a one-minute penalty for each Black Flag passed.

Any racer who ignores a Black Flag All during a race will be assessed a stop and go penalty under green flag conditions. If the infraction occurs on the last lap or two, and it is not possible to assess the stop and go penalty, the racer shall be penalized one lap.

Any racer who passes under a Yellow Flag condition or ignores a Black Flag during practice, qualifying or warm up will be given a 6 starting position penalty in the next session.

PCA CLUB RACING PASSING RULES

  1. The driver attempting a pass has the responsibility to complete a clean pass.
  2. The car ahead at turn in has the corner but does not “own” the corner.
  3. Everyone must leave racing room.

CAR CLASSIFICATION

STOCK CARS – Classes A thru M

Any vehicle in the stock classes, including prepared vehicles, must have been sold by Porsche to be registered for use on public highways (i.e., not a factory race car), be listed in the Class Weight Tables, and prepared for racing in conformance with the safety provisions of these rules and with only the deletions, substitutions, and additions of parts and modifications from a street legal vehicle allowed below. Euro-spec cars with higher factory horsepower ratings will automatically progress up one stock class if not listed as “Euro” in the Class Weight Tables. Special editions will generally not be added to the Class Weight Tables any longer. New special or limited edition models, and those removed from the Weight Tables for simplification, may be raced under Stock or Prepared rules if the owner contacts the PCA Club Racing Technical and Rules Committee for approval. The car must be an actual special edition vehicle, and not a clone. Unlisted special edition cars may not be used as the basis for update/backdate purposes. If approved by the Committee, a class and weight will be assigned so a Log Book can be issued.

In certain instances, non-factory parts may be used to replace worn or damaged factory parts, to increase reliability, and to decrease the chances of fluid or debris spills. In addition to those allowed in the specific numbered rules, the following non-factory parts may be used. In no instance shall such parts be allowed if they serve to increase the car’s performance.

  • Consumables or parts which can be obtained at general retail outlets for auto parts may be aftermarket parts, including fluids, filters, seals, gaskets, general hardware, belts, hoses, spark plugs and wires, and brake lines.
  • Aftermarket bearings and bearing retainers.
  • Parts substitution on the stock classes will be allowed when original parts are no longer available, subject to case by case approval by the Technical & Rules Chair. The racer making the request must provide documentation of the search for the correct part and the specifications of the proposed substitute. Approved substitutions will be added to the rules in the following year.
  1. Engine

  1. As delivered from factory. No modifications after the air filter box or before the exhaust headers. Mass flow sensor may not be relocated. Modifications before the engine side of the air filter box (e.g., aftermarket air filters, modification of the stock air filter cover, omitting the air filter element entirely, ducting air without making openings in tub or bodywork) are allowed.
  2. Machining of rotating or reciprocating parts for balancing is allowed as long as the work serves no other purpose and the balanced parts meet the minimum factory specified weight.
  3. Stock, for the year, fuel injection must be retained, except carburetors may be substituted for mechanical fuel injection. 911 SCs may use any CIS setting, and any CIS parts found on a Porsche, aftermarket electronic WURs are allowed, and control of the frequency valve on US models from 1980-1983 may be aftermarket.
  4. Chips are free in pre-OBDII cars, so long as the stock rev limit, and boost control on turbocharged engines, is retained. Electronic fuel injection must retain stock ECU and KLR chip (if applicable), and the OBDII flash may not be altered. 1984 through 1989 911 Carreras may use any ECU/DME native to US 911 Carreras during those model years.
  5. Turbocharged cars cannot exceed factory specified maximum boost, nor can any of the stock turbocharger, turbocharger plumbing or boost control components be replaced with non-stock components or altered in any way that could affect performance.
  6. Exhaust system is free providing the engine meets any local noise limit requirements. On turbocharged cars, the manifold and other exhaust piping between the exit of the port on the head and the entrance to the stock turbocharger is part of the exhaust system. All components which serve only to control emissions may be removed, and cars are not required to meet emissions standards, but this does not permit altering electronic programming where chips, flashes, or ECUs must remain stock other than to remove an emission related CEL.
  7. All air conditioning components may be removed. The heater core for water cooled cars with integrated air conditioning and heat systems may be removed.
  8. Radiators are free in water-cooled cars. Radiators must be installed in the stock location.
  9. The heater blower on the motor may be removed from air-cooled cars. Plates or ducts to close the openings for the heater flex ducts are allowed.
  10. Oil coolers are free.
  11. Baffling of stock dry sump oil tanks or wet sump engine oil pans, and use of an oil pressure accumulator (e.g., Accusump ™), to prevent oil starvation is permitted. In addition, M96 and M97 sump-in-block motors (Boxster, Cayman, 996, and 997) may make the following modifications, which may not also serve as a performance advantage: aftermarket oil pump hex drives, replacement of the oil to water cooler with an oil to air cooler and fan, any Porsche internal oil pump, additional oil scavenge pumps with allowance of an electric brake booster, any deep wet sump and baffling, any drain plug, any thermostat, and additional oil filtration.
  12. The dual mass flywheel on a 964, 968, or 993 may be replaced with a single mass, ferrous material (magnetic) flywheel. Aluminum flywheels with a ferrous wear surface are not allowed. The clutch disk must be the stock diameter. Suggested substitutions are:
  • ’90-’94 911 or RS America may use 964 RS flywheel
  • ’95-’98 993 may use 993 RS flywheel
  • 968 may use 944S2 or 968 Turbo S flywheel. The matching clutch and bell housing are allowed.
  1. Any ignition trigger which uses a standard distributor with stock style cap and rotor to deliver the charge to the appropriate cylinder is permitted. 911 SCs may use any distributor, including aftermarket distributors which allow electronic adjustment of the spark curve, so long as a distributor is used to distribute the spark.
  2. Valve springs, retainers and clips are free.
  3. Any spark coil and CD unit is allowed. This does not permit crankfire or coil on plug systems on models where these are not stock. The stock engine revolution limiter and function must be retained. 1980-1983 US SCs may use a 7,000 rpm rev limiter.
  4. An underdrive pulley on the crankshaft for the power steering belt may be used in Boxster/Cayman. Otherwise, underdrive pulleys are a “prepared” change. A power steering cooler may be inserted into the power steering system.
  5. Boxster, Cayman and 997 cars may change all power steering system lines and fittings to -8 or smaller Aeroquip style and add a cooler for the power steering pump.
  6. Pistons, wrist pins, and cylinders may be OEM versions of the factory parts. Aftermarket rings may be used. Aftermarket valves of the factory dimensions and at least equivalent weight may be used. Sodium filled valves may be replaced with solid valves. Aftermarket valve guides may be used as long as the part which protrudes into the port is at least the same size as factory.
  7. Any valve cover may be used.
  8. Aftermarket fuel rails are allowed in front engine cars as long as the stock fuel pressure regulator and damper are used, and fuel pressures are stock.
  9. Damaged or worn 944 and 968 engine blocks/cylinders may be resleeved to the stock ID, and modifications may be made to the block to improve the block to cylinder head seal, but the pistons must remain stock/OEM.
  10. When the bores of the water cooled boxer motors with a block rather than a case (Boxsters, Caymans, 996, 997, and later) are beyond factory wear limits or otherwise damaged, they may be resleeved. If the liner is plated with Nikasil, an aftermarket piston of a design and manufacture approved by the PCA Club Racing Technical and Rules Committee may be used. Approval will be given to pistons of the same weight, ring size and location, compatibility with the stock rods, piston crown shape offering no flow advantage, and compression ratio no greater than stock, along with a reasonable means of identifying the parts as approved by borescope if feasible and parts invoices. Approvals will be added to the rules in the following year. This approval applies to Stock/Prepared, SP996, SP997, SPB, SPC, and GTB.
  11. 911s from 1970-1998 may use the aluminum housing/cast iron plate Sachs Sport pressure plate.
  12. Air cooled 911s may use any stock Porsche oil pump available on stock 911s with Metzger engine cases.
  13. Aftermarket starter motors are allowed.
  14. 928s may install a dry sump system.
  1. Suspension

  1. Suspension pick-up points must remain as stock in location and type.
  2. Spacers to adjust the height of the steering rack and pinion are allowed.
  3. Shock absorbers are free providing they are in the same location and use the same pick-up points as supplied by the factory, with no limits on adjustability or location of the reservoir. Electronically adjustable shocks are only allowed on models so equipped from the factory, and those must remain stock. Only the stock electronically adjustable shocks may be adjusted, using the factory switch, by the seated driver. If a hose passes through an inner fenderwell to accommodate an external reservoir, a bulkhead fitting or tight rubber grommet must be used to seal the hole.
  4. Non-factory shock housings with potentially adjustable spindle height are allowed if welded in the stock position and the hub matches factory dimensions.
  5. Any suspension setting not requiring machining or modification of factory parts is allowed. 911s through 1998 may enlarge the camber/caster holes in the sheet metal at the top of the front strut towers to allow more alignment adjustment (e.g., more negative camber). This does not allow altering the shock tower generally for side clearance of the shock body – just the space where the adjusters move. 996 and later bodied models may cut upper shock mount sheet metal to allow full use of the factory adjustment slots if shock adjusters protrude enough to hit the metal, but only enough as is needed for the adjustment purpose.
  6. Bolt-in devices (e.g., camber plates) that allow for camber adjustment at the top of the shock are allowed. Machining of the shock tower is not permitted. Shock dust covers may be removed.
  7. Spring type must remain as supplied by the factory.
  8. Spring rates are free, but torsion bars must be of stock length, with their ends fixed only in the stock locations, and able to rotate freely within the stock torsion tubes.
  9. Sway bar sizes and configuration are free but may not be cockpit adjustable by the driver.
  10. Suspension and drive train mounting bushing and vibration absorbing materials are free. Replacement of these materials cannot alter the suspension or drive train geometry of the vehicle.
  11. “Hydropneumatic” suspension may be replaced by torsion bar/shock absorber suspension.
  12. Camber compensating devices for 356’s are free and strongly recommended.
  13. Braces between the front shock towers are allowed as long as they bolt in to existing suspension or other fasteners, or otherwise unused holes in the stock tub, or rest unattached on a bulkhead in the vertical plane of the shock towers and may also extend diagonally forward from the shock towers but may not extend to the rear of the shock towers.
  14. Adjustable spring plates that do not change suspension geometry or pivot points are allowed.
  15. 944/968 aluminum front control arms (A-arms) may be replaced with a part approved by PCA Club Racing or an appropriately modified early factory steel part.
  16. Toe links may be replaced in 993/996/Boxster/Cayman. 993s may use aftermarket links if they are the same length as the OEM toe link when adjusted by the eccentric.
  17. OEM two-piece lower control arms are allowed on 996/997/Boxster/Cayman.
  18. McPherson strut spindles may be gusseted to the strut.
  19. Aftermarket 2-piece lower control arms are allowed on the 996/997/991/Boxster/Cayman as long as camber is not adjusted to exceed what can be achieved with the allowed GT3 part. 992s may run aftermarket lower control arms.
  20. The 964 RS America steering rack may be replaced with the stock 964 power steering system, which may be powered by an aftermarket electric/hydraulic pump system.
  1. Tires and Wheels

  1. Any DOT (or its European equivalent) approved, nationally marketed, generally available tire which is allowed on public roads is allowed, even if it is a “road race version” and its manufacturer does not recommend its use on public highways. “V” or higher speed rated tires are required for all cars, except those for which “V” rated tires are not universally available. In all cases, the speed rating of the tire must be equal to or greater than the speed potential of the vehicle.
  2. Wheel type, style, and diameter are free, providing wheel meets or exceeds factory safety specifications.
  3. Wheel width may be no more than one inch wider than originally supplied wheel. Any tire combination which fits inside the stock body without rubbing and without modification exceeding “rolling” or “grinding” of the outer fender lip is allowed. Models whose widest original rim was less than six inches will be considered to have been originally supplied with six-inch rims for the purposes of this rule. See Appendix J for a nearly complete listing of original widths.
  1. Brakes

  1. Brake pad material is free.
  2. Brake calipers and rotors must be as supplied by the factory for the year and type of vehicle. 911s which came with the aluminum S caliper may substitute the iron A caliper for pre-1984 911s. Caliper pistons of alternate material are allowed. The PCCB option is treated as a Prepared change.
  3. Grooving/slotting/cross drilling of rotors is allowed.
  4. Ducting of air to brakes is allowed. Blower motors may be installed to pump air to brakes. Water may not be used to cool brakes.
  5. Removal of dust shields (backing plates) is allowed. Openings in hubs may be blocked.
  6. Brake fluid is free.
  7. Master Cylinders must be as supplied by the factory, except that early production cars may update to a tandem master cylinder to provide the safety of a dual circuit system. Adjustable brake bias may not be added to cars not originally equipped with it.
  8. Rubber brake lines may be replaced with stainless steel braid covered lines.
  9. 914s may use aftermarket rear brake bias adjusters and relocate them to more convenient position for bleeding as long as they cannot be adjusted by the driver while driving.
  1. Transmission

  1. Ratios of ring and pinion and individual gear sets must be as supplied by the factory.
  2. Transmission coolers are free.
  3. Any limited slip differentials (LSDs) derived from a mechanical type that was delivered in a street-legal Porsche is allowed. No locked differentials will be permitted.
  4. Modification to, or substitution of, the shifter mechanism which reduces the range of motion is allowed. The shifter console may be raised.
  5. Aftermarket transmission gears, mainshafts, ring gears, pinion gears, operating sleeves, and engagement teeth identical to stock factory parts may be used. Synchronizers may be of any material.
  6. In the 915 transmission, any 5th gear taller than the 5th gear proper for the model, may be substituted for the stock 5th. The Euro SC may run the US 3.2 Carrera 5th. SCs and 3.2 Carreras with the 915 may run US or ROW 2ds and 4ths.
  1. Body/Chassis/Interior

  1. Chassis/body, with the exception of bumpers and spoilers, must be the same material and configuration as supplied by the factory. Sheet metal modifications in the rear deck, trunk, and spare tire compartment as required for installation of a fuel cell are allowed. Aftermarket reproduction body parts may be used for repair as long as they are of the same material as the factory parts, are identical in configuration, and of the same thickness and weight.
  2. Additional flat metal no more than twice the thickness of the adjacent panel may be bolted or welded to reinforce suspension mounting points or repair chassis cracks. Added material may not otherwise provide chassis stiffening beyond the repair of worn areas. Welded material cannot be used for ballast.
  3. Ducts mounted through the bumper for fender-mounted oil coolers are allowed; headlight buckets must be retained, and body panels cannot be cut.
  4. Lexan windshields of appropriate thickness and quality of construction are allowed. The rear quarter (side) window glass may be replaced with plastic as long as it includes an air duct for driver comfort.
  5. Seats are free.as long as the driver’s seat meets the safety requirements. The passenger seat may be removed.
  6. Any ballast to meet weight must be placed entirely in the driving compartment and be securely bolted to the chassis.
  7. Steering wheels, subject to safety rules, and shift knobs are free.
  8. Spoilers and bumpers/air dams are free providing they do not exceed maximum factory body width by any amount, maximum factory body length by more than 1 inch, or maximum spoiler height of the vehicle by more than 6 inches. 911s through 1989 may extend a permitted air dam rearward under the car to the front of the stock gas tank chassis opening, extended sideways at right angles to the car centerline. Channels or ducts may be incorporated into the portion of this extension outboard of the tub for the purpose of channeling front brake cooling air. Turn signals, headlights, parking lights and tail lights must be retained in any bumper replacement. Fog lights may be removed. Rear spoilers incorporated into deck lids are allowed.
  9. Factory Aerokit wings are treated as a prepared change.
  10. Modifications to the underside of the vehicle for the purpose of improving aerodynamics are not allowed.
  11. All interior finish items except the complete dash (less any portion necessarily removed to accommodate roll cage bars) may be removed. This includes headliners, carpeting, paneling, glove box, consoles, coat hooks, lever boots, and the front passenger seat. These allowed modifications must conform to the spirit of the PCA Club Racing Program, i.e., be aesthetically pleasing. Additional gauges may be added but the stock dash and its covering must be retained. Radios, speakers, and other stock entertainment or communication systems and components may be removed as long as dash and exterior body holes are covered. The glove box cover may be removed if roll bars interfere with its operation, but the hole must be covered. Original seat belts and retractors may be removed.
  12. Any interior rear-view mirror is allowed.
  13. Airbags may be removed or disabled.
  14. Spare tires must be secured or removed.
  15. The soft top and its mechanisms may be removed from cabriolets to accommodate the roll cage.

  21. Aftermarket fuse boxes are allowed.
  22. Windshield washer components may be removed.
  23. Boxsters and Caymans may make the rear bumper cover venting and bumper alterations allowed in SPC Rule 6.2) (cut out license plate area, with an option to replace the bumper with a less obstructive steel piece).

Updating or backdating is allowed provided the converted vehicle meets all specifications of vehicle to which it is converted, i.e., it is a duplicate in all regards. Such vehicles must have a Log Book with all technical data that references the car to the class in which it is running. The body and chassis must match the year and model for the vehicle to which it is converted; updates and backdates are only permitted across model years sharing the same basic underlying unibody. Using 911s as an example, the chassis groupings are: up to 1973, 1974-1989, 964s, 993s, 996s, 997s, 991s. Cars updated or backdated across these lines will only be allowed if issued a Log Book indicating conversion before 2009. Special edition cars not listed in the Class Weight Tables may not be used as the basis for updating or backdating unless the conversion is used to remove the “special” features which affect competition potential.

PREPARED CARS

Any vehicle meeting the criteria for a stock Porsche per the previous rules and having one or more of the following changes will progress one stock class down the alphabet (e.g., E to F) except as noted. Cars whose original stock class is M may not make any of the prepared modifications and remain in a stock class. Any such modification will result in reclassification to the appropriate modified class based on modified class criteria alone. Note that prepared cars are classified as stock and compete in the appropriate Class A-M; therefore, except as noted below, all stock rules take precedence.

  1. Engine: The following modifications are allowed:
  1. ECU (DME) may be reprogrammed or reflashed, but this cannot affect boost on turbocharged cars.
  2. Factory available power packages for 930, 3.3L 964 Turbo, 3.6L 964 Turbo, 996, 996 Turbo, and 997 and later (e.g., X33, X88, X51, X50).
  3. Substitution of carburetors for electronic fuel injection on 914’s.
  4. Modifications/changes/substitutions of carburetors/venturis on carbureted cars.
  5. Non-standard ignition system. The number of spark plugs must remain the same as stock.
  6. Flywheels are free. Clutch disk must be the stock diameter.
  7. Substitution of carburetors or mechanical fuel injection for CIS or Motronic systems on 911’s, engine unmodified from intake port to exhaust port, progresses up two stock classes. If carburetors are the only Prepared change, the car progresses up only one stock class.
  8. Substitution of mass flow system for stock air flow metering system progresses up two stock classes. EFI conversion for cars which did not come with it progresses the car up two stock classes.
  9. Underdrive pulleys except for power steering belt on Boxster/Cayman.
  10. Cold air intake devices that alter the path of intake air after the air filter box and before the throttle body on Boxsters, Caymans and 911s from 1999 to present.
  11. Caymans, Boxsters, and water cooled 911s may use any intake throttle body and plenum.
  1. Suspension
  1. Slotting of the shock tower is allowed.
  2. Spacers to adjust the height of the tie rod end at the steering arm are allowed.
  3. McPherson strut spindles may be raised.
  1. Tires and Wheels – Wheels two inches wider than originally supplied and any tire combination which fits under the fender is allowed. Tires and wheels must comply with Stock rules 3A-D.
  2. Brakes
  1. Calipers, non-adjustable pressure limiters, rotors, brake booster and master cylinder are free, except the number of master cylinders must be as supplied by the factory.
  2. Alternate ABS control units that do not provide traction control are permitted.
  1. Transmission
  1. Ratio of the ring and pinion may be changed. For 996/997/Boxster/Cayman where there is no alternate ring and pinion available, a gear set for all forward gears not on the main shaft may be substituted if the resulting gear ratios for the substituted gears are equivalent to a ring and pinion change.
  2. All E-gas models may use an aftermarket downshift blipper.
  1. Body/Chassis/Interior
  1. Ducting of exterior body panels for additional cooling is allowed provided it does not change size and shape of factory panels. This does not allow scoops or louvers.
  2. Slope nose conversions are allowed; however, tire/wheel requirements must remain as per above.
  3. Fender flaring is allowed using factory material
  4. Rear wings may be added. For 911/914/Cayman/Boxster models, the wing may not be any higher, relative to a line parallel to the ground at the maximum height of the roof, than a factory (non-extended) 3.8 RSR wing (10” below roofline). For 924/928/944/968 models, the wing may not be any higher, relative to the roofline, than a factory (non-extended) 968 Turbo S/RS wing (9” below roofline). Wings may not exceed maximum factory body width by any amount, or maximum factory body length by more than 1 inch.

SPEC CLASSES

SPEC 944 (SP1, SP2 and SP3),
SPEC 911 (SP911),
SPEC BOXSTER (SPB),
SPEC 996 (SP996),
SPEC 997 (SP997), and
SPEC CAYMAN (SPC)

The Spec Classes are more limited in the number of models in a class, and differ on the modifications allowed, than the Stock/Prepared letter classes. There are eight different classes; 3 classes are for front-engine 4-cylinder Porsches and are designated SP1, SP2, and SP3. SP911 is for air-cooled 911s with engine displacements of 3.0L and 3.2L. SPB is for Boxsters with engine displacements of 2.5L. SP996 is for 996 C2 coupes with engine displacements of 3.4 and 3.6L. SP997 is for 997.2 C2 S Coupes (3.8 liters) and C2 Coupes (3.6 liters) from model years 2009-2012. SPC is for the 06-08 Cayman S.

All eight classes have the following GENERAL RULES:

  1. Parts: All parts must be factory stock from one of the eligible year models, except where otherwise noted. Stock parts may be updated or backdated, except where otherwise noted.
  2. Allowed Modifications: Only those modifications specified for each Spec Class are allowed.
  3. Class Markings and Numbers: Shall comply with the PCA Club Racing General Rules and shall be designated as “SP”
  4. SP1, 2, and 3 cars are eligible to compete in the PCA 944 Series as well as the PCA Club Racing National Championship series. Details of the PCA 944 Series are found on the Club Race website.
  5. Other venues have rules similar to SP1and SPB. The PCA rules for allowed modifications are generally congruent with these other sets of rules, but racers who are considering racing with those venues should examine both sets of rules to avoid anything not allowed in one or the other sets of rules.

SP1 Class Rules and SP1 Eligible Models

SP1 1983-1988 Porsche 944, Normally Aspirated, 2479 cc, 8-valve engine
1987-1988 Porsche 924S, 2479 cc, 8-valve engine

An SP1 car may be built from any year chassis in the eligible models as well as 1987-1988 944S and 1989 944. All components must conform to the list of eligible models and the allowed modifications. Aftermarket parts designed and sold as direct replacements for stock Porsche original equipment (OE) parts with no change in performance or weight may be used, except where genuine Porsche OE parts are specified in the rules.

911CUP

911CUP is a nationwide class, contested at every race. The intent is to unite all the air cooled cars that are currently eligible for D, E or F Stock, or for SP911 in a common class with a minimum of ballast. The 911 models eligible for 911 Cup, other than those built to SP911 specifications, are 1978-1983 US and ROW standard SCs, and 1984-1989 US Carrera 3.2s, along with the 1973 Carrera RS and 1990-1994 964 C2s and RSAs. Other existing track prepared 911 models listed in classes D through F Stock, including cars moved up to one of those classes due to Prepared modifications other than those allowed in 911 Cup, may be considered on a case-by- case basis by the Rules Committee, with weight adjustment appropriate to the modifications.

Cars competing in 911CUP must display the official Class sponsor’s windshield banner on the windshield, as well as the usual class designation on the car front and rear.

SP911 prepared cars may run as 911 Cup, or as SP911, depending on how they register for an event, but in either case must follow the SP911 rules.

Cars running under the Stock based subset of 911 Cup must meet Stock class rules for their base stock (or prepared) class, with the following additional allowances:

  1. Weight: The weights for eligible cars are listed in the weight table. These weights are lower than they previously were. For cars without a listed 911Cup weight, contact crrules@pcaclubracing.org. If these weight reductions in practice place the SP911 based cars at a BOP disadvantage, they may be adjusted upward on one month’s notice. Similar adjustments to the weights of other Stock based 911s may be made if they prove too generous.
  2. SCs (3.0 liter) may substitute carburetors, subject to the following limitations:
  1. The maximum carburetor size is 46mm and can only be Weber or PMO.
  2. The maximum venturi size is 38mm.
  1. Chassis reinforcement is free without limitation on bars through firewalls as long as firewall integrity is not compromised. Note that this does not allow removal of chassis parts (tube framing).
  2. The cabin air system under the cowl in the front trunk may be removed.
  3. Horsepower is limited to an average horsepower of 220 RWHP, measured (as in SP911) at 500 RPM above HPMax and 500 RPM and 1,000 RPM below HPMax, on a standard DynoJet machine. For West Coast BOP testing only, the maximum average horsepower figure is raised to 225 RWHP. The maximum average horsepower may be exceeded by no more than 3 horsepower to account for dynamometer variations.

A dyno sheet conforming to Appendix N is required for carbureted cars. The dyno sheet must include the numerical data table from which the curves are generated in order to calculate the average horsepower. (The dyno sheet is also available on pcaclubracing.org.)

Note: Until further notice, the horsepower limits in 5 apply to the stock based 3.2 liter model, but dyno sheets are not required for Stock based 3.2s and CIS 3.0s running in 911Cup.

  1. Stock bodywork parts which are bolted on may be replaced with aftermarket replica parts, which may be of alternate materials. Rear fenders may be replaced with such parts so long as a steel perimeter remains. External mirrors of any manufacture are allowed.
  2. Any caliper and any non-floating metal rotor may be used. Cars running the stock 930 Turbo brake calipers may run the stock Turbo floating rotors. Single master cylinders are free and need not be boosted. Brake balance adjusters are free as long as they are not cockpit adjustable. Balance bars and ABS systems are not allowed.
  3. Tub sheet metal interior to the body skin in the trunk forward of the firewall may be cut out, altered, and ducted for oil and brake cooling air flow, but may not exit out the bumper cover, hood, cowl, or fender or through the fire wall (i.e., may only exit downward or into the front wheel wells).
  4. Removal of front headlights and metal headlight buckets is allowed, but the opening must be covered with a solid material.
  5. SP911 glazing and rear spoiler and wing rules (SP911 1.C. and 1.D) apply, but only the windshield needs to be polycarbonate (Lexan).
  6. Serpentine fan/alternator belts, alternate pulley diameters, and crank/fan ratios are free.

MODIFIED CLASSES – GTA, GTB, GTP-1 thru GTP-6, GTP-A, and GT-1 thru GT-6

Any car which exceeds the modifications for the STOCK, PREPARED, SPEC, or other listed classes will compete in the modified classes. The cars in these classes do not have to be street registerable, however, they must meet accepted safety requirements and the decision to be allowed to run rests entirely with the PCA Club Racing Program personnel.

There is no class distinction by tire type for these classes, but GT2 thru GT6 cars not using DOT or its European equivalent public road approved tires, or bias ply slicks, must add 50 pounds to their minimum weight and must continue to include an “R” in their front and rear class lettering so that the Scrutineers will be able to know what a car’s minimum weight is – (for example, “2R”).

  1. General Requirements
  1. GTA and GTB cars must have an intact Porsche chassis and meet minimum weight established for each class.
  2. GT cars, with the exception of those covered in (C) below, must have a Porsche chassis consisting of a stock tub that includes the original floor pan, rocker panel longitudinal frame members, front metal firewall, and front shock towers or area surrounding the shock towers.

  3. For these classes, the engine begins at the input to the MAF or throttle body, whichever comes first, and ends where the exhaust manifold is attached.
  4. Underdrive pulleys, no less than 4″ in diameter, may be used in place of the stock crankshaft pulley.
  5. Power steering pulleys, if the engine driven pump system is retained, may be underdrive style (larger diameter) of any size. Electro-hydraulic power steering pumps may be installed, as long as their hose end fittings will attach to an unaltered stock power rack and pinion assembly, and if this is done the power steering pump on the engine may be removed or disabled and idlers and belts may be changed accordingly.
  6. The modifications allowed under Stock 1. J, P, Q, R, and V are permitted.
  7. Components for additional cooling of engine, transmission, and power steering fluids are free.
  8. 911s and 987.1 (2006-08) Caymans in GTB1 may use the 82mm GT3 throttle body and plenum, or aftermarket versions of the same.
  9. GTB1 Caymans may progress to GTB3 by installing a 997 3.8 liter factory production engine, with or without the X51 upgrade. Minimum car weight depends on the engine type (see weight chart). GTB3 models with the X51 intake will be deemed to have the X51 3.8 liter motor. GTB3 models with a 3.8 liter motor but the standard 3.8 liter intake will be deemed to be standard 3.8 motors.
  10. The GTB2 Cayman may progress to GTB3 with the GT4 3.8 liter motor.
  1. Transmission
  1. Cars must have an unmodified production transmission and gears as found in their base model except for cooling components.
  2. Shifter components are free.
  3. Limited slip differentials are free.
  4. Cars with the PDK transmission must add 100 pounds to the minimum weight in all GTB classes, but a 981 or GT4 with PDK must add125 pounds.
  1. Suspension
  1. Lower control arms must be stock, GT3, or GT3 Cup parts, although bushing materials for these parts are free.
  2. Aftermarket suspension links are allowed as long as they perform the same functions as stock parts. Engine and transmission mount bushings are free. This includes blippers.
  3. Progressed 981s in GTB3 may use GT4 suspension parts.
  4. Suspension pick-up points must remain in their stock locations but may be reinforced.
  5. Springs, shocks, sway bars, and camber plates are free.
  6. Brakes, including traction control, are governed by the GT rules, but only Porsche street car systems (e.g., PSM) native to the car’s model are allowed.
  7. Tires and wheels are governed by the GT rules, but bodywork may not be extended farther than the GTB bodywork rules allow.
  1. Bodywork

  1. Except as specified, an unmodified production chassis is required. Bodywork changes are limited to those found on an equivalent GT3 Cup, as follows: The 996 911 may use 996 GT3 Cup parts, the 997.1 and 987.1 Cayman may use 997.1 GT3 Cup parts, the 987.2 Cayman and 997.2 911 may use 997.2 GT3 Cup parts. The 981 Cayman may only use stock or GT4 parts, including Club Sport parts. The GT4 may not make any bodywork changes other than allowed replica parts.
  2. Replica aftermarket bodywork parts of alternate materials are allowed as long as they are bolt-on parts (that is, that they are parts like bumpers, hoods, hatches, front fenders, and doors). Replica doors for Caymans may delete the Cup window and may include a window frame if desired (the full integrated plastic window is not allowed). The allowance of these alternate material parts applies only if ballast is limited to 50 pounds. Head light assemblies may be removed and replaced with covers. Air jacks are allowed.
  3. Front bumper covers may have an opening cut into their upper surface to allow air from fluid coolers to vent upward, but this modification does not allow protrusions (e.g., Gurney lips). Ducting for such venting is free as long as there is no modification to the tub. This allowance does not apply to models which came with upward venting, which must be used in its stock exterior configuration.
  4. Ducting of cooling air is free as long as it complies with firewall integrity and does not involve making additional openings in the car’s exterior other than those allowed here.
  5. The 987.1 and 987.2 Cayman may add front fender flares. Front fenders with flares may not exceed the width of the corresponding installed 997 Cup Car parts as allowed in Section A above. Flares must be a Porsche or high quality aftermarket part and have an installed professional appearance.
  6. Caymans may cut out an opening in the rear bumper cover, removing the area where the license plate and bumperettes are.
  7. Metal bumpers (behind the bumper cover) may be removed.
  8. Windows are governed by the GT rules, but openings or ducts may only be made or placed in the quarter windows. Door windows, plastic or otherwise, are not allowed.
  9. Progressed 981 Caymans may use GT4 parts.
  10. See GT for interior modifications allowed. Roll cage and chassis stiffening elements are not restricted to the passenger compartment.
  11. External door mounted mirrors are free.
  1. Aerodynamics

  1. Splitters must conform to the GT limitations on splitters.

  1. The maximum cord is limited to 12 inches measured at the widest point of the wing, not including endplates.
  2. The maximum total wingspan is limited to 64 inches, including endplates.
  3. The wing may extend no more than 1.5 inches beyond the rear bumper cover, measured at the center of the car.
  4. No part of the wing, excluding endplates but including any Gurney lip, may be higher than 4’8” above the ground with the car sitting on the ground in its racing configuration.
  5. Multi-element wings are not allowed.
  1. Canards, dive planes, diffusers and modifications to the underside of the vehicle for improving aerodynamics are not allowed.

Classes GTP-1 through GTP-6, GTP-A

All Porsche factory approved prototype race cars, and GT cars with Log Books issued prior to 1999 that do not strictly adhere to the GT provisions of this rule book, race in GTP. GTP Porsches will be classed according to engine displacement as listed in the table below. “Porsche factory approved” means either manufactured by Porsche as a race car or raced professionally with a Porsche engine and non-Porsche chassis and recognized by Porsche or a professional racing organization with a manufacturer’s championship as a Porsche. Example: 2008 LMP2 Penske Porsche RS Spyder. It is the responsibility of the owner to supply documentation of such recognition. Eligibility of the car for points in the annual Porsche Driver’s Cup is one method of proof of such recognition.

ClassDisplacement, Normally AspiratedDisplacement, Turbo/Supercharged
GTP-1Not ApplicableOver 2.62 L
GTP-2Over 3.4 LNot Applicable
GTP-3Over 2.808 L to 3.4 LOver 2.16 L to 2.62 L
GTP-4Over 2.2 L to 2.808 LOver 1.69 L to 2.16 L
GTP-5Over 1.75 L to 2.2 LOver 1.35 L to 1.69 L
GTP-6Up to 1.75 LUp to 1.35 L
GTP-AALMS LMP and Grand AM Daytona Prototype cars raced with a Porsche engine and treated as Porsches for manufacturer's championship purposes, and Porsche engined prototypes raced in subsequent similar series, in the engine configuration as raced.

Classes GT-1 through GT-6

GT cars will be classified by calculating a “performance index.” The performance index applies the same principle of classification as used for the stock classes, which is weight/horsepower. The formula is:

Performance Index [PI] = (Weight x 100)/(Displacement [D] x Horsepower/Liter for engine type] [T]), or PI=(Wx100)/(DxT)
Transposing terms when you know your engine and the class you want to run in gives this:
Minimum weight for your car in your class = (minimum class PI x D x T) /100.

There are 16 engine types. Displacement in the formula is the exact displacement of the engine to the nearest thousandth of a liter. The weight (in whole pounds) in the formula includes car, driver and driver gear. Standard rounding applies to weight calculations. The table below provides the HP/L for your engine type to calculate the Performance Index or minimum class weight for your car:

Engine Type (T)HP/L
4 cyl air cooled90
4 cyl air cooled turbo150
6 cyl air cooled110
6 cyl air cooled turbo210
4 cyl 2 valve water cooled100
4 cyl 2 valve water cooled turbo185
4 cyl 4 valve water cooled115
4 cyl 4 valve water cooled turbo230
6 cyl 986-based (M96 engine, any chassis)135
6 cyl 987-based (M97 engine, any chassis)140
6 cyl GT3 with single throttle165
6 cyl GT3 with six throttle bodies175
6 cyl water cooled turbo (any chassis)240
8 cyl 2 valve90
8 cyl 2 valve turbo145
8 cyl 4 valve100

Classification is as follows:

Performance Index (PI)Class
425 and belowGT-1
426 to 550GT-2
551 to 675GT-3
676 to 825GT-4
826 to 975GT-5
976 and aboveGT-6

  • It is permissible to add ballast to change one class only. Ballast is defined as removable weight bolted into the car solely to achieve a target weight. Ballast may be placed anywhere in the car so long as it is appropriately and adequately secured.
  • Cars on non-DOT or equivalent approved radial tires (radial slicks) must add an additional 50 pounds to their formula based minimum class weight.
  • GT class, engine displacement, engine type and minimum weight must be written in the car’s Log Book on the inside cover.

CLASS WEIGHT TABLES

All Weights Include Driver and Driver’s Gear

STOCK CLASSES – A through M

    1. Prepared changes move cars down the alphabet either one or two classes from their base class; the stock class weight is still the minimum weight for the car. If a car whose base Stock class is F or below, and Prepared changes move the car to G or above, that car’s minimum weight is 100 pounds less than its base class weight.
    2. All Euro-spec cars with any performance advantage (compression, Motronics, etc.) over their U.S. counterparts and not listed in these Tables will be classed one class down the alphabet from the U.S. models.
    3. Targas and cabriolets other than Boxsters are not separately listed and race at the coupe weight. Due to the proliferation of model and transmission choices of the water cooled mid and rear engine era, as well as various special or limited edition models, not all models of Porsche sports cars are listed here. Anyone wishing to race a Porsche sports car, including the Panamera, may apply to the Technical and Rules Committee for assignment of a class and minimum weight. If applying under this provision for a street model not listed, Porsche documentation for the horsepower and curb weight must be provided to the Committee. If the application is for a Carrera GT, 918, or other model with a carbon fiber tub the application should indicate how a roll cage will be fitted, together with engineering data showing the proposed method will meet recognized custom cage specifications.
    4. The Club Racing Technical and Rules Committee reserves the right, on one month’s electronic or other notice, to alter the weights of any model in any class as best suits the competition needs of Club Racing.

    RULES REVIEW PROCEDURES

    PCA Club Racing has established an annual process for considering changes to these rules. Changes in safety related rules, rules clarifications, changes necessitated by external forces (e.g., specific tire availability), and editorial improvements are at the discretion of the PCA Club Racing Committee (Rules Committee) and may or may not be part of this procedure. Additionally, such changes may be implemented at any time as the Rules Committee may see fit. Changes published for comment, and changes finally adopted, will be published on the PCA Club Racing website and by e-mail to all licensed racers. They will also be published in the Club Racing News in the first available edition, but the timelines for rules consideration are not dependent on CRN publication dates.

    Proposals, comments, and other correspondence with the Rules Committee should be to rules@pcaclubracing.org.

    The specific events and approximate annual dates for this process are as follows:

    February 1 Opening date for submission of proposed rules changes to the Rules Committee.
    June 1 Final date for submission of proposed rules changes.
    July 15 Accepted proposed rules changes are published for comment. The fact that a change is put out for comment does not mean the Rules Committee favors it, but feels it is worthy of further consideration.
    August 15 Final date for submission of comments on proposed changes to the Rules Committee.
    October 15 Changes recommended by the Rules Committee for adoption as informed by comments are published for further review.
    November 1 Final date for comment on ambiguities in the announcement, typographical or other errors in specifications, and problems with changes which may have been overlooked to the Rules Committee.
    November 15 Adopted rules changes are published to take effect January 1.

    From time to time, it is necessary to add or change a rule outside of this schedule. If this is done, racers will be notified in a general e-mailing. These interim changes will be posted with the full rules on the Club Racing website.

    Racers contemplating building or purchasing a car with a Log Book should check for interim changes.

    APPENDIX A – ROLL CAGE SPECIFICATIONS

    Roll Cages: The roll cage must be securely mounted with the mounting plates at the bottom of the hoops mounted directly to the floor and/or longitudinal members of the unibody and make metal to metal contact. Any padding, carpet, upholstery, etc. must be removed to satisfy this requirement. The mounting area of bolt-in roll cage must be backed by a plate of a size equal to that of the upper mounting plate with a minimum thickness of 3/16”. Bolts must be grade 5 or higher. The roll cage must be full cockpit width, except as originally supplied by the factory for open race cars and have two fore/aft tubing braces. The braces must be mounted as near to the top of the main hoop as possible at an included angle of at least 30 degrees. Also, the assembly must contain a diagonal (left to right side) tubing brace from one upper side of the main hoop to a floor or unibody lower frame mounting point of a bar member on the other side to obtain the strength benefits of triangulation. Roll cage bar tubing in the Stock/Prepared Classes must remain within the passenger compartment, except that air cooled 911s through the end of the Carrera 3.2 (G body) may extend two roll cage tubes through the rear firewall, and two through the front firewall, but such front bars may not attach farther forward than the center of the shock tower suspension adjustment opening. The removal of the door glass to facilitate side impact protection is allowed. Carbon fiber roll cages are not allowed.

    The roll cage must have a full width main hoop and a full-width front hoop or two side halo hoops around the door opening connected by tubing across the top of the entire windshield. The tops of the hoops must be as close to the roof as possible in closed-top cars. In open-top cars, the top of the main hoop must be at least 2” above the driver’s helmet, and the plane formed by the top of the main hoop and the top of the front hoop must be above the driver’s head in both closed and open top cars. The front (or side halo) and main hoops must go to the floor pan and be connected with each other with tubing as close to the roof line as possible. The cage must have at least one additional bar across the door opening below the window level on each side connecting the front and main hoops for side impact protection. Additional side impact protection (two bars or “NASCAR” style bars protruding into the door) is strongly recommended.

    An inspection hole 3/16″ in diameter must be provided in a non-critical area for verification of tube thickness. Any portion of the assembly which may come in contact with the driver’s helmet must be covered with high density foam at least 3/4″ thick held securely in place with zip ties, electrical tape or duct tape. Foam must be equivalent to SFI 45.1 or FIA 8857 standards for hardness.

    Minimum Roll Cage Tubing Sizes

    All required tubing must have the following minimum diameters and wall thicknesses:

    Car Weight without Driver
    Under 2500 lbs Over 2500 lbs
    Mild Steel 1.50″ x .095″ 1.75″ x .095” or 1.50″ x .120”
    Alloy Steel 1.375 x .095″ 1.50″ x .095″

    Factory Roll Cages as delivered in factory race cars are allowed. Roll cages sold or installed by Porsche in street cars are allowed in stock class cars if certified to meet FIA regulations.

    APPENDIX B – SEAT BELT SPECIFICATIONS

    Any FIA or SFI approved 5, 6, or 7 point competition harness is allowed, specifically those with 2” lap webbing or 2” sections of the shoulder webbing designed to fit over the yoke of a head and neck restraint device. Straps should be inspected regularly and replaced sooner than their expiration date if abraded, torn, frayed, melted, discolored, or otherwise show signs of excessive wear.

    Belts shall be mounted according to these rules and the manufacturer’s specifications. The angle of the shoulder harness going back from the driver’s shoulders cannot be more than 30 degrees above nor more than 10 degrees below the horizontal plane of the shoulders. The anti-submarine straps must be mounted such that they will not allow upward vertical movement of the lap belt due to “crushing” of seat cushion material. Special attention must be given to the manufacturers and similar common racing requirements concerning the angles of the anti-submarine belt and the lap belts, their routing through the slots or openings in the racing seat, and avoidance of any bends in the angle of pull caused by adjusters, seat slots, or interference of adjusters with the seat or chassis. Shoulder webbing should attach as near to the rear of the seat as convenient in order to reduce belt length and stretch. The diagrams shows the proper routing of the straps around the mounting hardware.  (Courtesy Simpson Racing Products)

    APPENDIX C – ELECTRICAL DISCONNECT SPECIFICATIONS

    A standard electrical disconnect (battery cut-off) switch must be provided on all cars competing in the PCA Club Racing Program. This switch must be wired such that electrical power to all circuits, except an electrically operated on-board fire system, is disconnected. In the interest of convenience, the switch may be mounted in the compartment near the battery, or in the interior where the driver may operate it, and operation effected by a pull wire or rod passing to the outside of the car or by means of an electrically operated toggle switch located on the exterior of the car. The preferred location of the pull device or switch is on the driver’s side. It must be clearly visible, and its position marked with the approved decal of “lightning bolt” and the word “OFF”. The decal can be placed on the window glass as opposed to the bodywork, as close as possible to the pull device or toggle switch. It is recommended that the pull device or switch be painted red for visibility. Those vehicles with a permanently mounted switch or pull device in another location will be allowed that alternate location providing the position is clearly marked with the approved decal and the switch or pull device is external to the vehicle and easily accessible from outside the vehicle.

    This requirement does not have to be viewed as a difficult one with which to comply and can very easily be accomplished with the fabrication of a simple bracket to hold the switch near the battery. Braided wire can be used for the pull and it should pass through a small bracket mounted inside the compartment. A loop in the end of the cable completes the installation.
    (Decal Available from Racer’s Supply Outlets)

    APPENDIX D – WINDOW NET SPECIFICATIONS

    All vehicles competing in the PCA Club Racing Program, other than factory race cars with factory-type non-glass sliding windows must be equipped with a window net covering the driver’s window opening of either the string or strap type. The net must be mounted securely to the roll cage with provision for easy removal by the driver and corner worker in the event of an accident. The removal mechanism must at the top, so that the net will fall down when released. The use of straps to attach the bottom of the net to the cage is allowed. Separate straps, plastic buckles, and other attachment means are allowed if supplied by the manufacturer of the net or specified in the manufacturer’s mounting instructions. However, the use of plastic tie wraps or elastic cords is not allowed.

    APPENDIX E – 2024 PCA CLUB RACING ENDURO PROTOCOLS

    A race specified on the schedule as an Enduro will require at least one mandatory pit stop. If more than one is required, that will be specified in the race information. Races of over one hour will allow refueling. Driver changes are allowed in Enduros.

    The Enduro Race Timing will begin at the green flag or a wave off at the start.

    1. All required pit stops shall be for a minimum time of five minutes. Required pit stops cannot be made within the first fifteen minutes of the race and must start before the last ten minutes of the announced race length. The car must enter the hot pits past the check-in point after the fifteen minute mark. Drivers who do not stay in the pits for the minimum five minute stop will be Black Flagged and assessed a stop and go penalty with the stop time being equivalent to the time that the pit stop was short. A crewmember or driver shall notify a National Scrutineer when a pit stop is not to be considered a mandatory stop. If a stop and go penalty for a short stop cannot occur during the race a 1 lap penalty will be added to the results. Car must be running ON track when checkered is given to the leader and crosses the s/f loop on track or hot pits to avoid a DNF.
    2. All required pit stops shall be started under Green flag conditions. In the event of a restart, a driver may enter pit road to make the required pit stop on the ‘restart’ lap, provided that driver has crossed the Start/Finish line on the track under Green Flag conditions on the restart.
    3. Cars entering the hot pits for the mandatory five minute pit stop will drive past the designated Check In Point and timing of the pit stop will begin when the car passes the timing check point. The car must be at or below the designated pit lane speed limit of 35 MPH at the Check In point. When the driver has determined that his/her pit stop has been completed, the car will pull away from the pit wall, and proceed at or below the pit lane speed past the Check Out Point, at which point the car may start accelerating to re-enter the track. Cars which have pulled away from the pit wall may not stop or otherwise impede the exit of other cars from the pit lane in order to optimize their pit stop time. The elapsed time shall be from the time the car passes through Check In until the car passes through Check Out before entering the track.
    4. A maximum of three persons, including the driver(s), will be allowed over the pit wall to work on the car at any time. Any deviation from this standard for crewmembers will result in a stop and go penalty of the car involved.
    5. Minor repair work: tire changes, and driver changes are allowed during the pit stop. No equipment (e.g., jacks, tires) may be placed on the hot side of the pit wall until the car is within the pit stall. The car must run in the same configuration during the whole enduro; i.e., legal weight, equipment, etc. It is strongly recommended that the car be checked during the pit stop for excessive tire and brake wear, general safety, and leaks.
    6. The use of generators, battery operated tools, or electricity in the pits is not allowed during any refueling enduro of any duration, but this restriction does not apply to brushless battery operated tools, including refueling pumps. Compressed gas bottles taken to the pits must be secured and equipped with protection (e.g., metal cage) for the regulator.
    7. For enduros allowing refueling, fuel may be added to the car only by a driver or pit crewmember while wearing a fire-retardant suit, gloves, and a full-face helmet with visor down or balaclava with goggles standing at the point where fuel is added to the car. Long hair must be covered by a balaclava. These crew protection requirements also apply to anyone holding a funnel or cranking a fuel transfer pump wherever located. One person acting as fireman must be present in the hot side of the pit, with full fire safety gear, equipped with a minimum 10 lb., 60BC or 60ABC fire extinguisher with the pin removed during refueling, and positioned to discharge the extinguisher on any fire related to a fuel spill. The fireman may have no other duties until the cap is back on the gas tank. Drivers will be responsible for providing the fire extinguisher.
    8. During refueling, the car motor must be off, the driver out of the car, and no other work may be performed on the vehicle during refueling. Fuel jugs must remain capped and on the cold side of the pit wall, and the gas tank must remain capped, until the car is off and the driver is out of the car. Fuel jugs may not be set on top of the pit wall without being held by a crew member.
    9. Only plastic containers may be taken over the wall to be used in refueling. Reversible hand-crank refueling pumps screwed onto plastic fuel containers no larger than five gallons are allowed over the wall in the hot pits. If kept on the cold side of the wall they may be up to fifteen gallons capacity. Dry break systems with a “dump bottle” are allowed. Refueling towers and pressurized containers are not allowed. Hand operated pumps from metal barrels up to fifty gallons capacity are allowed on the cold side of the pit wall, but they must have an approved nozzle. Approved nozzles include filling station type nozzles with automatic shutoff, but with the ratchet system disabled, and manual nozzles with a dry break end.
    10. “Splash and go” refueling is not allowed. Any car refueled during an enduro must be in the pits for a minimum of five minutes during any refueling pit stop, even if the mandatory five minute pit stop requirement has been met or will be met by a different pit stop.
    11. Fuel may not be spilled during refueling. Fuel not contained in a jug, hose, funnel, or the car’s fuel intake system is a fuel spill. Any deviation from these refueling standards will result in the immediate disqualification of the car involved.
    12. No crew and no equipment may be over the hot pit wall in anticipation of a pit stop until the car has entered its pit and stopped.
    13. Each pit area will be thoroughly cleaned and swept, and all equipment removed, immediately after each pit stop. It is the responsibility of the entrant(s) to provide cleaning materials and equipment and to ensure that the pit area is clean. Failure to do so will result in disqualification.
    14. Drivers who have multiple cars or cars in different races may request the same pit area assignment for those respective races.
    15. Starting grid position for an enduro held before the sprint races will be determined according to the fastest lap timed during the qualifying session, or third practice session if no session is designated as qualifying. If there are two drivers, either driver may start the race, however drivers may participate only in the car to which they are registered. If a car does not have a driver who participated in the session used for gridding, the car will be gridded in the back of the field and placed by class; a number draw will be used within classes. Starting grid position for an enduro held after the sprint races will be determined according to the fastest lap timed during the sprint races or, if time permits, by a separate qualifying session
    16. Anyone speeding in the pits will be black flagged after they have exited the pits and shall be assessed a stop, talk to the National Scrutineer, and go penalty.
    17. Pits will be closed during full course yellow flag conditions. If a car is in the pits and completes its mandatory pit stop during a full course yellow, it shall be held at Pit Exit until the pace car and the main field has passed and be released to join the pack at the back of the field.
    18. If a Black All or a Red All is declared, at the time that the Black All or Red is first shown at Start/Finish, the pit stop timing clock shall stop for cars then serving their mandatory pit stop. The Enduro Race Timing shall continue. The race order shall go back to the order of the cars as they pass Start/Finish behind the on track race leader’s last Green flag lap. No work shall be allowed on any cars during a Black All. The mandatory pit stop timing shall commence at such time as the green flag is dropped at Start/Finish for the field, once the Black All has been completed. Any cars that have entered the pits under the Black All may remain in the pits but their mandatory pit stop shall not start and no work may occur on those cars until the Green Flag has been dropped on the field. Since the race order shall be the race order for the leader’s last Green Flag lap, the field may be re-ordered in the pits during the Black All.
    19. Any driver involved in an incident: (see Rule Book / Driver Requirements 1.A.)
    1. If the car is not running or handling normally or appears to be unsafe the driver must immediately exit the track during the session and must immediately report to the Black Flag Station,

    OR

    1. If the car is running and handling normally and the driver determines the car to be safe the driver may complete the time on track but must immediately report to the Black Flag Station upon finishing the session.
    1. Drivers who ignore a Yellow Flag shall comply with the provisions of the PCA Club Racing Flags section of this Rule Book.
    2. If a driver is Black Flagged the driver shall immediately pull into pit lane after being shown the Black Flag and go directly to the Black Flag impound area and not to his pit area. Other than mechanicals, no work may be done to the car during the pit stop. Drivers who ignore the Black Flag shall be assessed a one minute penalty for each Black Flag passed. Other than mechanicals, Black Flag stops may not be used towards the five-minute mandatory time.
    3. Mechanical black flag stops may be used as the mandatory five minute stop provided that it is within the allowed pit stop window and is for the full five minutes.
    4. Drivers should remember that enduro races are much longer than normally experienced and that they should pace themselves. Drink plenty of liquids, take care of yourself and your equipment and if you find you are making mistakes while driving, pull into the pits.
    5. Only the drivers registered for the enduro may be in the car. If a driver who is registered does not drive, a change sheet must be completed immediately after the race and before the drivers leave the track.

    Remember, this is for Fun

    2. Primary headlights must be located on the front of the car, above the bumper and below hood level, and outside of the inner edge of the front tire. Up to two additional driving lights may be located between the primary headlights. Additional lights may not be brighter than the primary headlights. Roof lights are not allowed.
    3. Tail lights must be located either as part of the light complex that includes the two primary brake lights or near those brake lights, outside of the inner edge of the rear tire.
    4. Excessive glare in the mirrors from overly bright and poorly aimed lights of cars approaching from behind is a significant problem, and all lighting must be adjusted to avoid this. However, adequate headlights are necessary to be able to see the track surface ahead, and tail lights are needed to be seen by cars behind.

    APPENDIX H – 2024 PCA CLUB RACING NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP POINTS RULES

    1. Purpose: The purpose of the PCA National Championship Points System is to determine a PCA National Champion and a subsequent finishing order in each class for each calendar year.
    2. Eligible Drivers: Drivers must be PCA Club Racing License holders in good standing.
    3. General Points: All races where points are available will have the same basic structure for earning points. Cars which do not finish will not be awarded points and will not be shown in a finishing position in race results. If they took a green flag, they will be shown at the bottom of the score sheet as DNF. To finish the race, a car must be running on track when the winner crosses the finish line and subsequently cross the finish line timing loop on track or in the hot pit. However, if with normal traffic flow, it is not possible to cross the finish line timing loop in the hot pits then the finish must be on track to avoid a DNF. Only races with standard starting and scoring will be points scoring races. For example, handicap races or inverted grids will not be points scoring races. Any points scoring races must be open to all PCA licensed racers. That is, any race that has special qualifications will not award points. (Example ‐ night race with extra experience requirement).
    4. Position Points: Position points will only be awarded to cars that finish the race. Position points will only be awarded for finishing positions in class. The overall finishing position within the group does not earn points. Racers who finish 1st in class will earn 10 points, 2nd 7 points, 3rd 5 points, 4th 4 points, 5th 3 points, 6th 2 points and 7th 1 point. Points will be awarded in class for enduros in the same way as in sprint races. If two or more drivers share a car during an enduro, the total points earned by that car will be split equally among the drivers who drove it in that race.

      Bonus Points: A racer will earn 1 bonus point for each car in class that the racer finishes ahead of, up to a limit of 10 points. Class bonus points will be earned by all cars finishing the race except the car that finishes last if all class starters finish. Cars that do not finish the race (DNF) or are disqualified (DQ) count as cars “finished ahead of” in class but receive no points for that race. There is a 10 point limit on bonus points available in any race. For example: The car that finishes 21st in a 22 car field where all 22 cars finish will earn one bonus point. In that same race the cars that finish first through 12th will each earn 10 bonus points. If there is one DNF or DQ, the 21st place finisher gets one point. If two cars DNF/DQ, the 20th place finisher gets two points.

    5. Event Points: Each racer will earn 5 points for each event attended where the racer starts and finishes at least one scheduled race. The fun race does not count. For position, bonus, and event points, to qualify as starting the racer must have passed the starter stand on the track after the green flag has been displayed to start the race. A late start after the field has started will count as a start if the racer passes the starter stand on the track. And to qualify as finishing the racer must be running on track when the winner crosses the finish line and subsequently cross the finish line timing loop on track or in the hot pit if it is possible at that track. There will be a maximum of 25 points available for each year in this category.
    6. Championship Totals: The best 13 race point totals for each racer in all points scoring races for the year will count toward the National Championship. Ties for the first three positions will be broken by the highest total in the 14th race then 15th race etc. A racer must successfully complete a minimum of 7 race starts in point scoring races to be eligible for a National Podium Award. Starts for this requirement will be as described in #6 above. Races that are started correctly but not finished count as starts.
    7. Points Races: All races in a race weekend, up to a maximum of three, will have points available. The final two scheduled sprint races will have points awarded. If an enduro is offered, it will have points awarded. If an enduro is not offered, the third‐to‐last scheduled sprint race will have points awarded. . For purposes of determining which races are points races, the final schedule approved by the Steward prior to the beginning of the event will be used.
    8. Schedule Changes: If the event National Steward determines that the event schedule must be changed after it is posted as final for any reason (example – for weather or track issues), the Steward will announce which three races (if available) will be the points scoring races when the revised schedule is announced. The goal in that case will be for racers to stay for as much of the event as safely possible. The Stewards decision will be final.
    9. Review: Any driver who believes that points awarded in any race are inaccurate may request a review of the points awarded by written (or email) request to the PCA Club Racing Chairman within thirty days of the last day of the race in question. Said request shall provide all documentation and/or justification as to why the points awarded should be reviewed.
    10. 13‐13 Sanction: A 13‐13 sanction (probation or suspension) during the calendar year will cause the sanctioned driver to be ineligible for a National Championship. The driver will be dropped from the National Championship points totals.
    11. Race Cars: All Race Cars scoring points must be properly classed and have a current Log Book. Disqualification of the car due to performance related compliance issues will cause at a minimum a loss of all points that have been earned by that car while in a non‐compliant condition. For example, disqualification of the car due to illegal engine modifications discovered after the last race will cause a loss of all points earned by that car from the weekend and possibly a 13‐13 sanction. Disqualification based on the car being underweight by less than thirty pounds will cause a loss of points for the session immediately prior to the weighing. Disqualification caused by the car being thirty pounds or more underweight will cause a loss of all points earned that weekend prior to the disqualification.
    12. Zone Championships: In addition to the National Championship Points System, a PCA Zone may have a Zone Championship. It is also possible for several Zones to join together in a Series Championship. All Zone and Series Championships and their Program details regarding driver and class eligibility must be pre-approved by the PCA Club Racing Committee. Zone or Series Championships will be determined in accordance with the above National Championship Rules used to determine a PCA National Champion and a subsequent finishing order in each class for each calendar year. Any exceptions must be approved by the Club Racing National committee. If Zones elect to have a Championship, points will be totaled by Zone or Series for each racer whose home region is in the participating Zone(s). Zone Championships will include points scored in races outside of the Zone. Zone totals will include all races the drivers have run in or out of the zone. For example, a racer whose home region is in Zone 2 will earn points for the Zone Championship in Zone 2 from a race in which he/she has competed in Zone 5 during that championship year if it is among his/her best 13 point totals for that year. Series Championships totals will include points scored in all races the drivers have run in the Series as determined by Series Championship Rules.

    APPENDIX I – SEATS WITHOUT A BACK BRACE

    In order to race without a complying seat back brace or meeting the mid-engined car exception to the requirement of a seat back brace, all the following conditions must be met:

    1. An FIA 8855-1999 approved race seat, within six years of its manufacture, or an FIA 8862-2009 approved seat within eleven years of its manufacture and installed in accordance with the FIA’s and manufacturer’s specifications.
    2. A metal seat mount, with each separate side formed from a single sheet of steel 3mm thick minimum, or aluminum 5mm thick, commercially available as a race seat mount, and mounted in accordance with the FIA’s and manufacturer’s specifications.
    3. All required fasteners in the system connecting the seat to the chassis must be at least 8mm in diameter and 8.8 in grade. Four such fasteners are required for each component connection, two on each side.
    4. If seat sliders are used, they may be the Porsche 996 and later Cup, or the similar Cup style/manual adjustment sliders with the 10mm chassis attachments used on street Porsches without power fore and aft adjustment, and these are recommended. Or they may be double locking sliders which lock with at least two teeth or other locks on both sides, are formed from steel at least 1.75mm thick, and are designed, manufactured, and widely marketed for use in race cars.
    5. Models with the 10mm seat to chassis mounting bolt system may use adapters, attached with those bolts to the stock mounts, which are made, tested, advertised, and commercially available for securing approved seat mounts or seat sliders.
    6. Chassis seat mounts on tubs other than those used by Porsche as the base for their race cars must be reinforced. The concern for front mounts is particularly to increase their strength in tension (upward force), and for the rear in compression (downward force – cracks have occurred in the Cup and other cars here, and Porsche issued a service bulletin on reinforcement). If reinforcement includes plates under the floor pan, they shall be a minimum of 1/8″ steel, and at least 4″ x 4″ in size.
    7. If stock chassis mounts are cut out in order to lower the seat more than otherwise can be accomplished for tall drivers or to accommodate wide seats, fabricated mounts must be made of structural (1/8″ minimum) steel using good design practices and properly welded to the sill, floor and center tunnel. The Rules Committee may consider approvals for other designs of altered mounts if they bear the stamp of a professional engineer showing that each of the four required fasteners will withstand a force of 15,000 Newtons separately vertically and horizontally.
    8. It is the driver’s responsibility to inspect the car’s seat chassis mounts frequently for cracking or other weaknesses, and to fix them before further racing use of the car.

    APPENDIX J – FACTORY RIM WIDTHS FOR STOCK AND PREPARED CARS

    The widths in this appendix are based on those in the PCA Parade Competition Rules, and on Porsche’s sales literature for many recent models. Race car models from bygone years have the width specified in the rules for such cars back then. If no width is listed for such a race car, or for a special or uncommon model, the driver must have printed information to present when receiving a Log Book, or attached to the Log Book, showing what that width is. Stock means the widest width listed by Porsche for the model, whether as standard or as a factory option, and without regard for diameter. Where only one number is given, that applies to both front and rear rims. If two numbers, the first is the front and the second the rear. Racers who believe there are errors in this appendix should contact the Technical and Rules Committee with documentation supporting a correction

    APPENDIX K – DATA PORT AND POWER REQUIREMENTS

    Cars, other than in the GT1-6 and GTP classes, must have provisions for the use of PCA compliance testing data systems on the track and at tech.

    1. Cars which came from Porsche with OBD (the round 19 pin OBDI port, or the trapezoidal 16 pin OBDII) data ports must retain that port in an easily accessible (preferably stock) location and with all its wiring intact (i.e., don’t cut any of these wires in order to attach data or other systems).
    2. Cars which predate the installation of these ports must have a connector with 12 volt (battery) power, chassis ground, and a lead from the tachometer signal input terminal.  The connector must be located in a conveniently accessible area below the dash on the passenger side and must have enough slack to be conveniently used and to reach the right-side roll cage front hoop upright but may be lashed up out of the way with a Velcro or Gear Tie or some other easily fastened/unfastened tie (no zip ties, as they have to be cut).The connector must be a flat four pin trailer connector, with three shielded female plugs, and one exposed male bullet plug. The outer shielded plug (typically with a green wire) is for the tachometer signal. The inner shielded plug (typically brown) shall provide 12V battery power, must be connected to an “always on” circuit in the car – that is, one which is always powered when the kill switch is turned on and the battery connected (e.g., interior lights, emergency flashers), and must be protected with a 7.5 ampere fuse. The unshielded male plug (typically white) shall be attached to a chassis ground.

    APPENDIX L – PCA CLUB RACING CONCUSSION POLICY

    A concussion is a traumatic event that may result in serious brain injury and impair a racer’s judgments immediately and in the long term. In order to keep not only the racer safe but also those racing with him/her, a medical evaluation clearing the racer must be done prior to continued racing participation. The following is the PCA Club Racing policy regarding a concussion occurring during a PCA race weekend.

    1. Any traumatic head injury with LOC/confusion after an accident, at any time during a PCA Club Racing weekend, even for a brief period should be evaluated by Hospital Emergency Department (Emergency Room/ER) evaluation. If a diagnosis of concussion is made, no further racing for that weekend. If the racer refuses Emergency Department (ED) evaluation, he/she may not race again until medical clearance obtained as below.
    2. If a concussion diagnosis is made, racer will need further medical clearance by a neurologist or physician qualified to appropriately evaluate neurological injury with specific attention to the head injury and concussion (this may also include a racer’s primary care/family doctor). The examining doctor will also sign the first page of the PCA medical form that details what a racer undergoes during a race weekend in addition to a complete neurological evaluation clearing him for further racing.

    3. Any significant non-traumatic and unexplained LOC (excluding obvious vaso-vagal or dehydration event) shall result in a suspension of participation until diagnosed, treated, and cleared by the appropriate physician. 

    All the above medical release certifications must be presented to the PCA Medical Safety Committee for approval at least 1 week prior to the racer’s next racing event.

    Harry Kintzi MD FACEP
