Motorsports Association Co-Hosts Biannual Autocross

Weekend autocross includes vehicles owned by alumnus Mike Ferrucci ... retiree Larry Emery ... and current student Sam ResnickThe Penn College Motorsports Association co-hosted its fourth biannual autocross with the Sports Car Club of America Northeastern Region this past weekend. The event, held at Brodart Co. on Arch Street, is a skill contest that emphasizes drivers’ ability and their cars’ characteristics. Drivers negotiate a course that is set up with cones in a low-hazard location and compete against themselves and other drivers for time. PCMA had approximately 80 cars of various makes and models enter the competition. Among the participants were Penn College students, alumni and faculty, along with community members. PCMA and the SCCA work with Brodart twice a year to hold the two-day event; this marks the third year they’ve held the event at Brodart. Autocrosses are open to participation by everyone over the age of 16 with a valid driver’s license. Photos by Jessica L. Tobias, student photographer
