Thats great, so I'm guessing I'd have to pay the annual membership fee to be able to race. But $15 seems to be very reasonable, how many runs do you get?

Yeah, the annual membership is required. The $15 nets you 5 runs, the first one is a practice run and the next 4 are counted, with best run recorded in the results.

Trust me, grip has about nothing to do with how you'll fare at your first event. Just work on not getting lost.

I'm trying to find a co-drive for this year as my autocross/track car won't be ready until May at the earliest.

Meeting with the current car owner on Saturday. If all goes well I'll have a MONSTER of an autocross car for May. Assuming I stay reliable, I should be killer this year. I don't think the club is going to know how to class me. How does 1500lbs, 140hp sound?

Randy, any idea if the MINIs will still be classed as MINIs? I'd prefer the typical solo2 classing where brand isn't a factor. Coming 3rd place overall the last 2 years in a row is made more difficult if people don't show in your class. When that class has to be one brand it is even harder.

Paul

Going to bring the X5 this year.

Time to break her in!

Those tight pylons make it tough for large vehicles....

You can do that if you're concerned about 1/10th seconds. For the first time out, just clean up the clutter in your car (change, papers, etc.. on console/dash), make sure your floormats come out, and double check there's nothing under drivers seat (which should be moved into a more upright position - NO LOUNGING). More importantly have more than 1/2 tank of gas, a tire pressure guage (easily borrowed), patience and willingness to ask other veterans questions/opinions. See you in 2 weeks!

Paul,

You should try the 318 class. It's useless with at most 2-3 cars showing up at the events.

so that means that there will be no stock and modified classes then??? Or will the points scheme work within the modified class?
