Sorry to post this, but SSSCC will have a 3 day event that weekend as well!
Hopefully I can make it to at least one event no matter where!

Just to bring this back to the top...  

SCCA is holding an event on Sunday in the normal autox area.  BSCC is holding a practice at the same time at the top end to the left from the site entrance.

Monday is a regular BSCC event.

If you are a PCA member, or are invited by one, Saturday is a PCA autocross.

I'm in for Monday. I am running in the SS class instead of Novice this time, so I will be there for the afternoon session. I could only swing one day so I thought I would stay with BSCC.

Anyone else running this weekend?

May try to swing Sunday.  Can't do Monday, I think.  And I know that though this would be my first time, I am way out of any of stock class.

I would like to try on Monday, but it's a full day off for the whole family. What class would I be in again, Gordon?

Starting out go Novice. You can then run anytime, morning or afternoon. Also as a novice the teachers will usually jump in your car for a run or two to give pointers. Also in novice it doesn't matter what you have done on your car.  Within each run group everyone mixes up so you could have a novice and sport A right after each other, but you are all on the same course with the same rules.

It is a heck of a lot of fun you and Andy can share a car and run in the same group. The shared car line goes twice as often as the single driver line. Definite advantage as it keeps the tires warm. I can't convince Shelly to try it. At $25 a driver it is a deal.

Doesn't really matter.  I would probably run Scoop. I would go with whichever has the best rubber.

Won't be able to make this one as we will be on the eastside camping...unless the weather craps out....then I might be there and just have to register day of. Really looking forward to trying out the new coilovers and see what a difference it makes. Just had my alignment done at Cantrell Motorsports today...boy does have some grip now!!!

So Novice doesn't really get put into the exact class that the car qualifies under?  Hmmm...

novice class does not make allowances for car prep  (other than race tires are not allowed)
It is just a good place to figure out how things work, while letting the regulars know you are a newbie, so they can provide assistance

Excellent!  Haven't brought this up with the wife yet, though she does know that I want to at least try my hand at auto-x.

Glad you had a good time.

motoring, that was your MINI that you were changing the tires on when I pulled in? Shoot, I should have come by and said hi.

I have in car video of my 4 runs.

I wish I had some video of Dean "Kone Killer" Prince (MiniCharley) he spun in the finish chute after a great run and they only gave him 6 cones ( I thought it should be closer to a dozen)

Martin (Wildfamily) had a tough morning, but was stellar the afternoon.

We even got to run in the sun and dry. Good times.

Come out next weekend, and say hi :)

What a day!!!!   I'm surprised I only took out 6 cones too!!   I counted 10 as I was hitting them!!    You have to admit, it made for an exciting finish!  I wish I had a video of it too.   It was more than a cone kill .....   it was a cone massacre!  WooHoo

Keith - it was good to meet you and your wife!   If you want some tips on how to finish big, just let me know, I'd be happy to share my "special finish" that Gordon spoke of..    I'd love to get your tips on how to get the mini on 3 wheels!  Very impressive.

You should change to Stock E

Keith,
 
It was nice meeting you and your wife. That is quite a trailer set up you have. Love how the miata fits in right under the Mini! Cool stuff. Oh, and tell your wife that I was impressed with her driving. Not sure if you noticed but she actually got on 2 wheels on the back stretch for a milisecond!
 
I was having some visualization issues in section 1-2 in the AM session so that was a throw away, but PM went really well and turned in some nice times. Was great running with all of you again. Dean...I think we need to call Charley..Charley Manson since he is now a "mass murderer" of cones! LOL That was awesome!
