Registration for the PCA DE at Indy has opened. Registration is on clubregistration.net, information can be found on Motorsprtsreg.com and morpca.org
I had hoped i could talk them into setting aside one or two run groups for Racers and not have to follow DE point by rules, but that was not in the cards. Bluntly, we are not their primary customer. So If you want to go you can sign up in the advanced run group and run the track. its the same circuit as the Runoffs except its missing one small loop before the back straight.
The information about the event is below. I am not involved in running this event, just a member and have no pull.
They do not allow camping in the paddock so you will need a hotel.

Yes, you are reading this correctly, INDY Baby! MORPCA is hosting a 3-day weekend event for our return to the world famous Brickyard in 2017. This will be MORPCA's third year offering an exclusive HPDE at the Brickyard and the only such PCA HPDE event there in 2017. We will be running the Indy Grand Prix course (with a possible twist), crossing the start finish Brickyard strip on the main straight.
Beginners* are welcome for this 3-day event!
You can anticipate that this HPDE ticket will be in high demand again this year, as it was sold out the last 2 years. SCCA has announced that they will be holding a national racing event at IMS in 2017 shortly following our event, so you can expect high SCCA advanced driver demand for practice time. So we encourage you to register early to secure your spot before it is sold out for another year. All run groups will operate under PCA HPDE rules for point by passing in each run group.
There will be 2 Instructed run groups and 4 Solo run groups. Instructed drivers (Green/D) will have to meet minimum Beginner HPDE experience requirements (*that being at least one other HPDE event at one other track). MORPCA and other PCA regions offer many opportunities to get that minimum experience before Indy 2017.
Many more event details will be found on the MORPCA Web page as they are announced.
New this year we are adding a specific garage spot registration feature in ClubReg, allowing you to request/be assigned a specific garage spot to help coordinate your desire to "hang with your friends" or get that preferred location at Indy. If you have such a request (not mandatory), make sure to use that Option when registering. Otherwise comp'd garage assignments are assigned in order of paid registration until all spots are gone. If you prefer to park you car / stay with your rig in the east paddock and forgo a garage spot, please let us know that too (see registration question) so we can get as many drivers as possible a garage spot.
