    Autocross - August 26 and September 23

    Autocross is back!

    We will be holding two Autocross events at the old Park and Jet Parking Lot north of the Calgary Airport.
    Dates are August 26 and September 23, (rain or shine).



    Most Autocross events have up to 80 cars and participants usually get 4 runs.
    Looks like this event will have between 20 and 30 cars, so you'll get the opportunity to get many more runs!

    We need a minimum of 20 cars to make this a go and currently have 14 RSVP's.
    If you planning on going, please RSVP and email Kevin (kevinrs60@gmail.com)

    For anyone who is the least bit hesitant about trying Autocross, please don't be! I just did my first one in Spokane and it's very addictive. My only regret was not getting more runs in, & this event looks to remedy that.

    Autocross is a safe event, in a controlled environment. It will not damage your car, and you will gain an even greater awareness of what these incredible machines can do when pushed beyond daily driving conditions.

    Let's make this event a go!

    Spokane was my first ever autocross as well & I wholeheartedly agree with all Al's comments.

    if we don't get 20 participants, I'm okay with paying a bit more to still have the event go ahead which would mean even more runs!

    I'm excited about the autocross event tomorrow! I've been itching for something like this for so long. Earlier this year I put all new damptronics on my 911 and I have a shiny new helmet too.

    Thanks in advance to Kevin, Mark and Kyle for organizing!!!

    A big thank you to all involved in organising and hosting the event...

    Here are a few pics of the festivities. Sadly I couldn't capture any wheels in the air, (but that Subaru sure tried!)...

    Thank you Mark...it's funny I didn't notice the lines until I downloaded the pics, they definitely add to the shots...(and thanks once again for kindly lending that jacket!!)
