Nov 1st is shaping up to be a good day. Looks like a lot of people are coming out. I am praying the weather is good enough for Careless to bring the skyline. Also hoping Mystical comes out for it. There was some talk of his old autocross days at the last event.

I know alot of people are excited that John is
making sure the track is good and fair for all sizes of cars

I picked up a part for my car the other night, and in talking to the guy he's coming to the autocross too, he had no idea it was going on! Remember if you know anyone who is interested in competing invite them out (even if they don't have a BMW)

Yes you do have to be a member to participate in the autocross

the cost of the autocross is $15
cost of prorated membership till end of year is about $15 or
pay for next years membership and get the rest of this years for free. Membership for next year is $65 and will get you this years Christmas party ($40 a head dinner) and access lots of specials from sponsers. The club is also doing a winter go kart racing series 4 to 5 track drivings schools at Mosport (which you pay a tax deductable tuition so it's technically free ) many social events and not to mention next years autocrosses.
Membership provides alot And is so worth it.

Hope to see you out on the 1st.

LOL. Remember how flat the bottom of the seat was? I raised the front an inch and dropped the back of the seat almost 2 inches. Seating position is perfect for me, my ass is so low I can see the gauges threw the mono steering wheel again. Plus being a hair under 6ft 2in. I can sit in the car know with a few inches of clearing the roof with a helmet on. You'll have to see how I did it as I think you are as tall or taller then me

Here's a reminder to all about the Last Autocross of the year! We're running a double header, yeah, that's right back to back Autocrossess! HOWEVER YOU BUY THE FIRST ONE, THE SECOND ONES FREE! If you sleep in and still want to participate, then just pay for the second event and you're in. We're stopping for a quick lunch break after the first autocross to reset the course and cater lunch to all participants! Pizza, Wings, Pop, Water, etc! We're renting a propane heater to help keep warm as it's looking like around 9 degrees right now with the long range forecast. We'll also have a tent up to shelter from the elements. First event registration is 8 am, track walk at 8:45am, and first car off at 9 am sharp! We figure lunch should be around 1 pm, and we'd like the first car off for the afternoon course at 1:45 with the track walk around 1:30! As a reminder $15 is the event charge + membership, if you're a non member, pay for next year and get the rest of this year for free, that's $57.75 GST included! Allows you into our X-mas party this year and next which is a $40 value each in itself!!!

Cheers,
John
