What is the South Jersey Region?

The South Jersey Region of the Sports Car Club of America is a membership organization that facilitates and supports motorsports events in the South Jersey area. Events include Club Racing, Rally, and Solo. Please visit our partners (shown above this section).

 

What is the SCCA?

Since 1944, SCCA has championed one mission: To bring motorsports to the masses of American men and women who are passionate about automobiles, speed, and competition. From National Championships to regional events, whether professional or amateur, we exist to organize, support and develop auto racing at every level, and provide an outlet for you to get out of the armchair and into the action. So, whether your passion is autocrossing, rallying, or road racing as a professional, or as a weekend warrior, SCCA wants to help you fuel your passion.

The SCCA has sectioned the country into 9 areas called divisions (for example South Jersey is in the North East division of the SCCA). South Jersey Region is one of 20 regions in the north east dedicated to the support of auto racing. 

 

What is Road Racing?

This is the heart‐pounding, adrenalin‐pumping, wheel to wheel action on the tracks at New Jersey Motorsports Park (actual contact is highly discouraged, however). Successful completion of an SCCA driver school and competition license (or novice permit) is required. South Jersey region runs five to seven events at NJMP each year, and your help would be greatly appreciated.

Road racing is also about volunteering. SJR volunteers have a lot of fun helping to organize the races, and helping to do all the little (and big) things that need to happen every race weekend. Below is a video we made a few years ago about the different specialties that are behind the scenes at an SJR race weekend.

South Jersey region members also whole‐heartedly support the professional events that are held at NJMP. These sometimes include the ARCA series, Rolex Grand‐Am, SCCA World Challenge, Mazda MX‐5 Cup, and other professional series. Come on out, and get close to the action!

SJR’s road racing information is located at the Club Racing link in the menu above.

 

What is PDX?

PDX is taking your daily driver out on the track, and learning how to go fast, even in corners! For the complete novices, there is an instructor to ride with you, and guide you. Or even drive your car, so you can see what it can do.

Once you have gained enough experience and skill, the instructor will 'sign you off', so you can drive by yourself. Again, after showing skills and awareness, and gaining experience, you will be 'signed off' to the Intermediate, and then the advanced group.

SJR will have 3 more PDX events (at least) on our Test Day Fridays before three of our Club Racing events. Come join us and see what it's like! 

 

What is Rally?

Road Rally is also known as a time, speed, and distance rally. This is not about how fast you go, it is about how accurately you can cover that distance in a given amount of time.  Clues are given for each leg of the race. If you arrive too early or too late at the end of each leg, you get penalty points. This contest is held on public roads at or below the posted speed limit and the competitor with the fewest points wins. South Jersey Region has a healthy and growing rally community. We hold 5-9 rallies per season, come out and see how fun it can be! Our Road Rally information can be found by clicking on the Rally Menu at the top.

 

What is Autocross?

Test your driving skill as you drive your car through a course of cones in a parking lot. All you need is a driver license and a helmet that is 1995 or newer. No special equipment is needed, but your car will undergo a safety inspection before the start of the event. Loaner helmets are available, and members save $15 on entry fees. Speeds rarely exceed 60mph, but every tenth of a second counts. South Jersey currently holds its Autocross (formerly called solo) events at Bader Field in Atlantic City, NJ. We are actively looking for other venues to add to the excitement! More information and our Autocross schedule can be found on the Autocross link of the menu at the top of this page.

 

What are Track Events?

Track Events (formerly called PDX events or performance driving experience) are sometimes called track days. At these events, you can drive your street car around a real race track. There is limited passing, and if you are inexperienced, you will have an instructor assigned to you. 

 

What are Time Trials?

Time Trials are a mini version of a road race on a closed course (such as NJMP’s Lightning course). You get three laps each session to better your drive time. This is an excellent opportunity to fine tune your driving skills before the more competitive, wheel to wheel action of road racing.

What is a Hill Climb?

This competition is a time trial, up a hill, on a closed public road course, in cars with roll cages. Fastest one to the top wins. The Pennsylvania Hill Climb Association can be found on the web at http://www.pahillclimb.org.

SJR thanks Windshadow Studios for the miata picture, Jim Wakemen, Sr. (though I'm not sure who took it) for the road rally picture, and GE3KSPD for the solo picture.
