Any Auto-X'ers?

Postby Sound_Miata » Sun Jun 16, 2002 1:22 am

I'm just curious to see if there are any auto-x'ers among our ranks beside myself. For those not familiar with the basic concept, picture downhill sking on a parking lot or airport runway. This is not a side by side race, but a driver control situation. Any car can run, from heavy and underpowered to fully built cars, there are a number of classes so you can see your respective time and how it (in theory) compares to other drivers. There is even a Novice and street tire class. I compete once to twice a month, and while more expensive per seat time than a full track day, it is easier to get to for me. I highly recommend doing one or two if you like to go and push on the twisties every now and then simply because what you learn in a controlled environment really helps in the streets.

About 5 years ago I was.. but now that I moved, and there is nothing of the sort around here, I've been out of it since then...

there is PLENTY in ohio, just not well advertised, to find your region, go to http://www.scca.org then click on SOLO II (Solo 2) schedule to find races...or hit up

http://www.scca.org/interactive/regions.html#cendiv

as they show websites for all the "central division" which you are in, there are 5 ohio chapters that I saw right off the bat, look one up, 20 to 25 for a day of racing, but you learn quite a bit.
