That's right, this will be my first event to chair and course to design on September 23! Our event 6 went off well and was chaired by first-timer and fellow DSO member Abide. We're a small region, with turnout usually between 35-55 on a fairly small asphalt lot, but the top third of our PAX'ers are guys who've been doing it a long time and have been competitive at nationals and tour events if you want a challenge!

8AM - Registration opens
8:30AM - Tech-in opens
9:30AM - Driver's meeting
10AM - First car on course

$20 for novices and SCCA members
$30 for non-members and non-novices

We're usually done by around 2-3PM, depending on how many people show up. Course layout isn't finalized, but this is pretty close to what it'll end up being.


Should note that start is on the left, exit is in the middle. I'm open to pointers from veteran autocrossers on here for course setup advice.

I may actually wash my car if time permits it, after the alignment tomorrow it should be done so I can tidy it up Friday since the strip is closed.

Haha yeah, it does suck. We should start an autocross video thread.

You must be lonely in that house with just you and the cat lol. I've gotta clean the crap off these tires, guess I'll use a buffer and some sandpaper haha.

Interesting, like you didn't like it?! Lol. Course was fun but didn't flow like I wanted, we had to reverse the start/finish and run it backward so we wouldn't be exiting into the spectator area. It was also quite a bit faster than I had anticipated, I know Abide was riding limiter through the crossover after the chicago box and I was bumping it as well.

I'll post some pics and a video of my 5th run (about a second off my fastest). My car was all over the place til the last run when I figured out how to drive on R comps...aaaaand could've been the toe out I had dialed in.

Kappa PAX'd 21, Abide was 7th and I finished 4th being .022" of the FTD.

interesting on your raw time.

I hate hate hate not being able to tune still. I could have bounced for another second or two and still had control. But the up-shift would slow me down. maybe they will change the rules or someone that isn't greddy will have a decent piggy back by then. not being able to buy a cheap $700 flasher just infuriates me

No, they're in the rule book in STC. STC now has a set list of cars in it, it is really about the only thing that can come close to an STC 89-91 Civic Si, even then it's really not that close. They're heavy and underpowered, open front diff and viscour rear with a fwd bias on the power. That one above will be nice soon, he's got some AST coilovers he'll put on one day.

Honestly, STC is such a hard class to get competitive in (as is STS), that's one reason I decided to stay SMF. Lot more money, but not as much competition nationally.
