    2012 VCMC Auto-X Cup -- Featuring NCT

    Ladies and Gentlemen, the 2012 autocross season is finally upon us, and we are proud to present a new format to the VCMC hosted autocross series of yesteryear. We have combined the VCMC Series and Novice Championship Tour (aka NCT) into a sleeker and more efficient package that is the 2012 VCMC Auto-X Cup!

    For Novices (i.e. those with 3 or fewer autocross events experience prior to the 2012 calendar year), the NCT category (aka. Novice Championship Tour) remains within the VCMC Auto-X Cup. You can observe and learn from the veterans while fighting it out with your fellow Novice competitors!

    For Veterans, all your favorite classes still exist in this new series but you all know there is really only one class that matters -- OPAX!

    The VCMC Auto-X Cup will be held in a best 4 out of 6 format for all competitors. This event will be held on the FULL pad. No longer are we confined to the rectangular, up, loop around, back courses of the past. There will be extra long sweepers, off camber turns, grip levels changes and all sorts of other challenges to keep autocrossers on our toes!

    Your ELT is working hard to line up prizes for the season so please stay tuned and stay hungry for those trophy spots. We are happy to announce that PDM Racing is continuing their ongoing support of the NCT group with prizes to be announced.
