News
It's official - we will be at CoTA for the Autocross this weekend!  We will be using Lot H (north of the back straight - http://goo.gl/maps/lrzOI) for the course.  A map with more details for paddock, grid, and directions to the site will be sent later this week.  Sorry for the late notice, but we wanted to wait until everything was signed and sealed!  Get the word out to your friends!
 
Please pay attention to the below changes of rules for this event:
 
  1. You must be 18 years old with a valid drivers license to participate. This is a requirement per COTA.
  2. We are limiting the event to 160 single entries to make sure the event runs smoothly (we may open up the Double Entry class Friday if we haven't reached the entry cap).
  3. Entry fees for the event are $36 for members and $41 for non-members to cover site rental and insurance. In the long term, we might be able to lower the entry fee for COTA events, but the costs for this first event at COTA are VERY significantly higher than normal, hence the increased entry fee.
  4. We are also requiring pre-registration AND pre-payment (no refunds and no walk up registration) for this event.  If you have already pre-registered, you will need to follow the below instructions by this Wednesday at 8pm, otherwise we will be removing registrations that have not made payments to make room for new registrations.
    • Go to AxWare ORM and login: https://axwaresystems.com/axorm/
    • Click Event Calendar and find the July 20th Spokes/Sasca Joint Autocross #7.
    • Click the Register button to the right of the event listing.
    • If you were already pre-registered, you'll now notice in the upper right corner a red shopping cart saying "Checkout $36" (or $41 for non-members). Click on the shopping cart and checkout to pay online (required).
    • If you were not pre-registered, follow the normal registration process, which should require you to click on the shopping cart to checkout to complete your registration.
 
See y'all out there!
As I'm sure y'all have noticed, the July 20th autocross is still listed with a "TBA" for the location. We are working hard trying to secure a new site for us to run at, but there are still some hurdles for us to cross. The event will either be held at a new site, Retama, or San Antonio Raceway. We will provide an update as soon as we can.
What is it?
Well, it's an autocross school.
 
How does it work?
The student will double enter for the event. Their first/normal set of runs will count for their class competition. During the double runs, you will be assigned an instructor who will help you improve on the course that you just competed on! The instructor drive your car for 1-2 runs, and provide instruction from the passenger seat on the rest of your runs.
 
How much does it cost?
It is simply the cost of a double entry! So, really, this is the cheapest autocross school in the country.
 
How do I sign up?
You sign up by emailing Vivek with your name, what car you drive, and class/number. The school is open to students of ALL levels, but is limited to 10 students, and has always filled up within an hour of announcing the school. So if you are interested... don't delay :)
The 5th Spokes autocross coming up on June 8th will be held at San Antonio Raceway. Get registered, and come out and play!
Team Challenge Points have been updated! Note that the overall points right now drop 1 event. When we have 3 or more events, 2 will be dropped.
