That is pretty cheap compared to what MCO charges, they watn $40 for non members and 35 for members (something like that) and you get 3 runs :S

I wonder how hard is it to organize an auto-x, only thing that concerns me is the electronics

What should concern you is the insurance. I believe that is where the majority of the cost is.

I'm aware of that, but how hard could it be to purchase insurance for an event?

It's not hard, rather expensive. I priced it out (for BimmerCruise) and $5million liability is required (about $6500/yr).

Don't worry how you will do. I took out the 2003 Corolla last summer to the auto-x with wornout (bald sides) all season tires; it sucked driving with literally no cornering grip, but I cared more on my technique.

I've driven a stock Volvo wagon the season before, it had a fresh set of summer tires and the grip helped, but with stock suspension and stock everything else, it felt like a cruise ship; at least I didn't have the slowest times

I couldn't careless how I do compared to the rest cause with the cars that I drive (which I don't own ), they're uncompariable with the majority of the others. Oh well a few more years till I get my own car and I'll be back if not participating in Solo II instead.

^^ i just compete against myself...my own times. it's more reaxed that way and you'll prolly drive better. the majority of race car drivers claim that they drive the best when they're at their calmest. i find this is true playing PS2...i usually do better when i'm thinking about something else, i.e. not trying so hard.

I guess you have not been out to any of the MCO events lately.
The price is usually $25 for members and last year we had an average of 9 runs per event. The runs are usually from 50 to 70 seconds long.
We have one of the largest lots available in Ontario and our fun costs the club about $1,200 per event.

We have now real good timing equipment that allows to run two cars at the same time and a nice software that gives us instant results.

Why don't you come out on May 15 and check it out yourself, you may be surprised what all changed.
See this thread:

Hope to see you in May

Klaus

Come to the actual event and you can sign up on the spot. Easier than mailing checks/forms, etc.
