No Rookie Class huh ... interesting.

I guess it depends on how many people you have going to the AutoX in your region.

Well, sgtsmasher if you don't have the backseats ... I guess just do what GodLovesUgly suggested to you ... and just run it as it is. You definitely will learn where you stand and what mods you will need to do once you get in there.

For you first time ... just go out and have some fun. That's really what it's all about.

we have an average of 8-10 rookies per event, so we could run a rookie class, but instead we just give a trophy to the "rookie of the year."
imo a rookie class isn't fair, some rookie can come in the class with a vette and use pure power to smoke an automatic corolla that should be getting kudos for the car and class via PAX.
meh, all this talk about autocross is giving me withdrawals.. and i still have 4.5 months until the next event!!

^^ That stinks about waiting.

I guess having the heat down in South TX helps us enjoy fairly good dry weather for AutoX all year round. 12 Events / 12 Months with 3 divisionals in the summer and one national in the spring.
