Susquehanna Region is the #1 automotive event club in south central PA. We are a group of car and racing enthusiasts, who have a passion for actually taking their cars on the road and racetrack. Our primary club activity is AUTOCROSS, where members can drive their cars at 10/10ths in a safe environment. Members also road race, rally, kart, build cars, and more.
We extend an invitation to YOU to bring your car to an autocross and drive it like it was made to be driven. Check the Autocross page links for details on what it is, and how to get started.
Autocross: May 16-18 at Carlisle Fairgrounds (not series points event)
RallyCross: July 5 Farm Show

SCCA Novice Autocross School Coming Soon – Saturday, June 28th
The Susquehanna region is holding a novice autocross school in Hershey at the Giant Center Parking lot. This is appropriate for beginning and novice drivers as well as those who want to get a lot of seat-time. The school is limited to just 24 slots so preregistration and prepayment will be required. As usual find it on MyAutoEvents.com . The cost is $75 and will include a full day of driving and an al fresco lunch. (Non-SCCA members will also need to purchase the Weekend Membership, which will also be valid for Sunday's full Autocross event.)
The format of the school will follow the model of the wildly successful Porsche club event recently held at Hershey. Students will be divided up into 3 groups. Each group will spend 1 ½ hours on each of 3 exercises. Each student will get ½ hour driving the exercise and divide the rest of the time replacing downed cones or in a classroom session.
At the end of class the instructors will setup a short course combining elements from the exercises. You may run the course as time allows, with the instructor of your choice riding or driving your car or you can choose to drive solo.
Please don't miss this school. Autocross is a continuous learning experience so don't let the name Novice scare you. Here were some of the student reviews from the recent school:
"From my perspective, I wouldn't change a thing. The complexity of the tight schedule was handled well by the local leaders. The club instructors were very good and taught me things and also corrected many practices/approaches I had wrong coming in. This was excellent for my student level; don't bring back the pro's we had several years ago unless you want to have an advanced only class. The best part of this was the run time"
"I should have been doing this for years. Value: where else can you have that much fun, enjoy a full day of activity and lunch for such a low price. Quality: I am a novice so I gained a lot, but I overheard an experienced driver in my group say he solved his big problem."
"Thank you for putting on the school. I got way more out of it than I had anticipated. All of the elements were relevant and we had plenty of time to practice them. Geoff Craig was great and helped me work on the weakest part of my driving. All of the instructors were very helpful and pleasant to be with. Congrats on a wonderful event!"
See what I mean? Please join us for a great day of fun and learning
