As a new addition to the Member Racing Series we are happy to announce the Auto-X series. These events will be open to all members, including social members, and a competition license is NOT required. An Auto-X (autocross) is a race against the clock in a course laid out with cones. These competitions will take place in various locations at the club including the paddock, skid pad/kart track, and even using portions of the road courses. Dates for these 7 events have been included in the Member Racing Series schedule. The events will consist of a walk through to learn the course and then a limited number of timed runs. Awards will be presented for the fastest time of the day and the most consistent 2 runs. Attend as many events as you can to take your shot at being the Club Auto-X Champ!
Attention 2015 Racers
Everyone must apply to renew their Autobahn racing license before they can race or attend an Autobahn racing school in 2015.
This means completing: 1) License Application 2) Medical History and 3) If due, doctor signed medical.
