Autocross 2015 starts!

Our first club autocross is coming up the weekend after this at Cherry Valley. For those that haven’t been there is a cross between autocross and road course! lots of fun and no cones! just follow the paved road and enjoy! If you have not done an autocross or DE before this is a great chance to check out a driving event.

We have also issued a challenge to the Corvette club to show up and have a friendly competition for best team time of the day

We will have an update on the lunch situation when we get a little closer.

The official completion is for Porsches and it will be based on PCA classes but you can also bring a different vehicle if you must – you will be running for fun and not be scored.

Please RSVP to Mike so we have an idea on how many are coming. darm911@windstream.net
