is also the same, then one additional point will be awarded to the entrant who scored higher in relation to the other tied entrant in head-to-head competition. If this does not break the tie, the entrant with the most Challenge series points in all events and classes wins. In case of ties in Autocross or Driver's Education events, the entrants tied shall all receive points appropriate to the tied place, and the next lowest scoring entrant shall receive points for the corresponding lower position as if the tied entrants had filled the intervening positions. Concours and Rally/Tour ties shall be similarly scored unless a tie-breaking method was specified in the event rules.
An Autocross is basically a low-speed event with a course delineated with pylons. There will normally be no instruction at these events; however, time will be allowed for course "walkthrough”.
The following rules apply specifically to Autocrosses:
Approved helmets (as defined in Tech Inspection Chapter) must be worn and be in good condition.
Seat belt use is required.
Full-length pants, long-sleeved shirts, socks and full shoes are recommended for all drivers and corner workers. Bare feet, sandals or open-toed shoes are not permitted for drivers or corner workers.
All loose items must be removed from compartments, passenger area and trunk, and your vehicle must pass a top-tech inspection prior to being allowed to participate.
Vehicles must meet Chapter XII tech requirements.
Use utmost caution while driving in the pit and parking area (do not exceed 5 MPH). Persons deemed driving unsafely will be disqualified from the event.
No passengers are allowed during timed runs.
At parking lot Autocrosses, Targas and 914s may participate with their tops off, and Speedsters, Cabriolets, Roadsters, Boxsters, and Convertibles may participate with their tops down and without being required to have a roll bar.
If a competitor knocks over a pylon or moves it completely outside its outline, a penalty will be incurred. All pylons will have the same penalty. The penalty will be two seconds for each pylon so moved. The final pylon penalty assigned to a run or rerun will be the pylon penalty recorded during that run.
If a driver observes a pylon(s) moved or upset by someone else, the driver should stop immediately and indicate the problem to a
