2017 Season Autocross Points Updated

CRSCCA Events

Street Survival: Wow. What a great Street Survival school. Thanks to all the coaches. Special thanks to Gerald Street for doing the classroom work, and Scott Dobler for handling the course layouts. The students were great.

Pics from TRSS Saturday at Dade County HS are on the CRSCCA Facebook page. Again, thanks to all the coaches. The student evaluations were fantastic. The skid pad with cracked corn really worked well, we’ll probably do that again in the future. Hoping we can have another SS school in the spring. -Beth Cox, CRSCCA RE

Autocross Update

Registration for Autocross Event No. 2 is now open!

From Beth Cox, R.E.

All I can say is THANKS to everyone who helped with the Sept. 17 autocross event. The weather was perfect, we had a boatload of novices, got a few new members, had a great turnout and a great track layout, and as far as I know most folks had a bang-up time. Next event is Oct. 29 and we’ll get reg info up on motorsportsreg dot com soon.

This event was the first of the fall season, and yes, we are keeping score as there will be an awards party/dinner at the end of the season. Special thanks to Ray Soldano for posting the wonderful pictures. Any suggestions for making things run more smoothly are welcome, as always.

Many thanks to CRSCCA board member Gerald Street and to Brent Cooper, assistant principal at Dade High School.

First event is a Test and Tune, now scheduled for Sunday Aug. 27 at the lot at the high school where we have run before.

Then we have standard autocross events there on Sept. 17, Oct. 29, Nov. 19 and Dec. 3. Hoping to have an awards gathering/Xmas party later in December, maybe on Dec. 9 or 10.

We now have two licensed Safety Stewards, so that should not be a problem this fall.

Also, we are planning a Tire Rack Street Survival School at Dade HS on Saturday Nov. 18 and we’ll need lots of volunteer instructors.

Join us Thursday and let’s get this thing moving!
