IceCross

When you Pre-Register for this event, you will automatically be subscribed to the IceCross Bulletin. All event details are emailed to you, using the IceCross Bulletin.

IceCross events are designed to be safe, low-pressure events in which all participants have fun! The primary goal of IceCross events is to develop drivers who can successfully control their vehicles in adverse driving conditions with consistency.

Consistency requires that winter driving techniques become natural reactions, which carry over in safer driving on icy, wet, and even dry roads. These natural reactions develop through using the least amount of input for the desired response and doing it smoothly, becoming aware of the car's individual qualities and handling, and by spending time on the ice practicing car control. As we are striving for consistency, we average scores when it is reasonable to do so.

Quick Overview

Please review all of the Boston Chapter Iceracing webpages prior to submitting an inquiry to the IceCross Staff. Links to all IceCross details are located below. Most IceCross inquiries, including those concerning Pre-Registration, Registration, Car Classification, Timing, Scoring, and Trophies should be directed to the IceCross Coordinator, Stan Jackson Jr.

You must Pre-Register using our online registration system to run in any Boston Chapter IceCross . Pre-Registration does not obligate you to attend an IceCross . Payment is accepted during Registration at each event.

We plan for five IceCross events each season. Events are generally held on Sundays; however, we may occasionally schedule a Saturday event. In 2014, IceCross events will be held during the period January 18th through March 30th, inclusive, which provides eleven possible weekends. The specific dates will be determined based on ice and weather conditions, as well as on the date of the first event.

The first IceCross each year is The Stan "Iceman" Jackson / Peter Weber Memorial IceCross.

The status of each tentatively scheduled event is announced on the IceCross Bulletin. The final decision each weekend will be posted by 12:00 noon or shortly thereafter on the day prior to the event.

A 318ti on the course.

It is sent out periodically during the weeks when events are scheduled, generally on Wednesday evenings and by early afternoon on Saturdays. The latest IceCross Bulletin is your best source for event status. Additional details such as event updates, ice conditions, and weather conditions are distributed via the IceCross Bulletin as well.
