MCAS Cherry Point - Foxtrot Runway

Categories


This year NCAC will have a theme just like national level events. We are adding an element of the 3rd kind, 2017 NCAC Encounters. So get in the mood and see how creative you can be!
EVERYONE MUST PRE-REGISTER. MCAS Cherry Point is a restricted-access active Military base. Registration WILL CLOSE Sunday September 27th at MIDNIGHT. If you are not pre-registered by then you will not be on the Gate-Access List and you will not be able to participate. NO EXCEPTIONS. WE ARE SERIOUS ABOUT THIS. THERE WILL BE NO ONSITE REGISTRATION FOR THIS EVENT. Pre-Register or you will not be able to autocross.

ALL questions asked by the registration software are MANDATORY, including the last 4 digits of your Social Security Number. NCR does nothing with all of this information but send it to the Marine Corps for their background checks. We know it’s a lot to ask for, but we’re getting permission to autocross on a runway on an active Marine Corps Air Station. It’s worth it, trust us.

Everyone MUST go through Tech (Car and Helmet) to get an event Tech Sticker. No tech stickers = No Autocross.

Upon arrival to Cherry Point on Saturday morning, all drivers will have to present their ID to be checked off of the approved Gate Access List. Passengers are subject to the ID check. We need the information of anyone who will wants to be on site so there is a “Spectator Only” class in pre-registration that can be utilized for any guests who may be driving separately, but not competing. All vehicles are subject to a search upon entry to the base.

When driving on base speed limits are strictly enforced, as well as no cell phone use. Please keep in mind that you are a representative of NCR while on base. We have a great working relationship with Cherry Point and don’t want anything jeopardizing our use of the base.
No overnight parking on site. We are still working on this with Cherry Point. We’ll let you know at Check-In if it changes, but don’t count on it. If it does happen it will be by special pass, that must be displayed overnight, issued at the gate after an inspection of trailer and race car. Parking is available at the Havelock Event Center behind the official event hotel for Friday night and Saturday if we don’t get the overnight parking go-ahead. We apologize for the inconvenience; it’s all just part of being on an active base.
No camping on site. This is final, sorry.

Directions to Foxtrot Taxiway: Enter the base using the Main Gate from Fontana Blvd. Follow Roosevelt Blvd until you pass the end of the big runway (to your right). Take the next right onto Access Rd. You’ll pass Duffy Rd on your right, about a 1/4 mile farther there will be a driveway into the woods on your right. That’s the turn onto Foxtrot, it is unmarked other than our “Auto-X” sign, so you have to be looking for it. If you get to Rifle Range Rd you’ve gone too far.

Speaking of the Club Cup:
In NCR we’ve run the Cape Fear Cup, our own team competition, for the past 6 years. One thing we’ve learned with that is that it’s not the top drivers that win for a team, it’s how deep the team is. The other thing we’ve learned is that a team can’t win if they don’t have good attendance. So with that said, to really show what each team has for this year’s Club Cup Competition: We’re counting the Top 15 PAX times from each club!

If more than 2 teams don’t have 15 participants then we will count however many the second lowest club has, with a minimum of 10 racers. Any teams that cannot meet the attendance requirements will be placed according to how many drivers they have participating. Lowest attendance is 5th, second lowest is 4th, etc. You can’t finish if you don’t start!

Lunch: We’re working on having a concessions vendor to be on site both days for lunch. There are a few restaurants on base, but it will be easier for everyone if we can get a food vendor out there selling burgers and dogs. If for some reason we can’t make concessions happen we’ll send out a mass email to let everyone know to make alternative plans for lunch.
