Club Race at
NOLA Motorsports Park
in New Orleans

NOLA Motorsports Park is located only 14 miles (20 minutes by expressway) from downtown New Orleans. The weekend will be a shared event with the NOLA NASA Region and will include the PCA Races, NASA HPDE, NASA Time Trial, and NASA Races. The PCA practice sessions and races will be in their own run groups separate and apart from the NASA run groups. We will be using the 2.75-mile configuration with the “esses”. If you would like to extend your stay, secure trailer parking is available before and after the event.    

Here is an outline of the PCA Schedule for the weekend:

Friday – Practice Sessions, Fun Race & 60 Minute Enduro Points Race

Saturday – Warm up, & 2 Sprint Races. Sprint Race 2 will be the Points Race.

Sunday – Australian Pursuit Race (Inverted grid with a staggered start. Not a PCA Points Race.)
Pursuit Race victory celebration, trophies and Champagne for the top three finishers!

Thursday Test & Tune:

The cost is $250, $100 for an additional driver in the same car. This IS NOT a PCA Event.
