There’s been a little break in the action since Event #2 on May 19th, but that’s all about to change… This Sunday (6/23) we’ve got Event #3, with Event #4 the following Sunday (6/30). For this Sunday’s event we’re also welcoming the Allegheny Region of the PCA to our event. These guys have had a growing autox program and its great to have them come out!
Remember, online registration saves you time in the morning! You just need to come down, sign the waiver, and check off your name on the sheet. No waiting in the registration line!
In between Events #3 and #4, PittRace has asked us to put on a new type of event for them… A “TrackCross”! For this non-SCCA event, we’ll be running on the North Track. You’ll have a standing start at the start/finish line, then run the track all the way to turn eight where you’ll cross the finish line and your time will stop. Its one car at a time and this portion of the track is relatively low speed and has great runoff room, so the risks are lower than a typical track day. Safety requirements are very similar to autocross, with the only exception being that convertibles must have some type of rollover protection. A factory hardtop, factory rollover hoops like on an S2000, or an actual rollbar are sufficient.
If that sounds as fun to you as it does to us, plan on coming out! The event is on Thursday June 27th, from 4pm to 8pm. Cost is only $60, so this is the cheapest and easiest way around to get yourself out on the North Track! See this page for more details, including a link to the MSR registration page. On site registration is welcome as well.
As you can see, there’s going to be a lot of fun available over the next week or so. I hope to see you all at the events!
