Sunday may 18 autox

what? Autox ( also know as SOLO)-is a 'race' where you are timed on a tight course. One car at a time. Courses are generally tight, and constructed with cones indicating corners/driveing line. So drivers skill and your cars handling are just as, or more important than brute horspower.Warning autox is sooo much more fun than you might think driving around cones can be. It is very ADDICTIVE! And just as fun if your car is completely stock.
where? Boeing Airstrip, 501 Industrial Hwy, Ridley Park, PA 19078-right off i 95
when? Sunday MAY 18 2007
cost?Nothing compared to a racetrack event-

http://www.phillyscca.com/solo2/index.html


Philly region of the scca is having autox(solo)events in other locations including warminster park PA(north of philly).
But Boeing is only a lil over a hour from Bmore.So for those waiting for a Ripken stadium autox...this is your closest venue. Cause Ripken stadium is no longer having any racing events due to new home construction near by.

Are you going Kevin, I never liked the Bowing lot (I got lost out there a few times), but I would consider giving it a shot just to try out the new tires.

The helmet has a special meaning for many drivers. How important is it to you? - It protects my head.

Do you have any special rituals when the helmet is concerned like many have? - I wipe it so that I can see better.

Was Capital Driving Club the club that normally races up at Ripken? I went to a event last year and want to go race in one.

I remember they required you to take a insturctor with you on your first 2 or 3 laps which I want. Dont want to be driving around the course for the first time alone lol :)

I don’t think capital driving club has run there they typically run at the Bowie Baysox stadium, and the Fredrick Keys stadium and somewhere in VA.

I think there is a capital driving club event on 4/26 in bowie, I would like to go but unfortunately it look like I’ll be working that night.

Most organizations will offer you an instructor if you ask.

I was just looking at the SCCA rules trying to class my car, I may fall in to SS since the car may be unclassifiable. I’m basically between street mod and prepared.

Not so much the new construction, as just shitty politics- apparently those crazy race cars got blamed for tearing up the fresh asphalt after B&B Circus left town... God Im so pissed I never got down to ripken to try out the lot.

And for those of you debating Warminster... the runs are longer, the turnout is greater, and the insanity is stupidererer! I should be at Boeing and every other philly event as long as it doesn't conflict with SJR events.

Speaking of SJR ( http://www.sjr-scca.org/solo.html ) ::
Our Blackwood course is no more then a half hour northeast of Boeing- And next season if not towards the end of this season, we will be shifting the SOLO events to Thunderbolt Raceway in Millville, NJ. It's most likely closer then Boeing for you MD folks!

And Autocrossers Inc. had the Ripken site. Now they are tearing up Fed/Ex http://www.autocrossersinc.org/
