    Can we still use the '02 wrx SCCA memberships?

    When I got my car, leafing through stuff in my glovebox, I noticed that I still had the original document offering free SCCA membership for one year for wrx owners - somehow, none of the previous three owners ever bothered to fill this in.

    Since I see no sort of expiration or anything, would I still be allowed to send this in for a free year's membership?

    All they can do is say no - go for it.

    That's how I got started in the SCCA. I waited a full year when I bought my WRX new back in 2004.

    I agree, try it and see. If they do say "no" I'd shop around instead of just joining SCCA if you want to auto-x though. There are local car clubs that sponsor events in CA, for example, that are cheaper, more fun, and with a lower-but-friendlier attendance.

    Maybe in California the "friendliness" issue is a problem with the SCCA clubs, but the OP is in NJ. I know that the South NJ and the Northern NJ chapters are both pretty cool groups of guys. Philly Region, too, is very outgoing.

    I will echo what's been said already -- send in the paperwork, and the worst they will say is "no." Otherwise, if you're interested in joining SCCA on the cheap, there are a couple of options. If you're under 25, the First Gear membership is something ridiculously inexpensive, like $25/yr.

    Secondly, if you go to two autocrosses as a non-member, you will have to pay for two temporary memberships, and depending on the region, that will be anywhere from $5-15 each time. Check ahead of time to see how much it is, because if it's only $5 or $10, it's worth it to do the temp membership thing twice, then submit your temp membership numbers to SCCA for a full year membership with a $30 discount ($15 for each of the temp memberships).

    Interesting, someone at the last autocross I was at mentioned this program. I told them I had ordered a new WRX and they said I could get a free SCCA membership.

    I hadn't heard of it recently so I am guessing it isn't being done anymore?

    They probably aren't doing it anymore. Within the packet of documentation (warranty guide, tire guide, owners manual, etc.), there used to be a nice little thing congratulating on your purchase and a form to fill out to send to the SCCA.

    I sent mine last week, no word yet.
