Iowa Rally!!!!! Part Deux

Well since we were all thinking about getting together again sometime in August, might as well start a new thread for it. I'm thinking this time we should go autocrossing, if there is any events in August. If not we could head over to Cordova again, but it's still gonna be flaming hot...

I know the other meet just got over but since that was origionally posted 4 months before we met, might as well start thinking of some ideas and dates now. I'm open really whenever, I'll check on the autocrossing if anyone wants to. We'll have to have an install day again.

If you're interested and live in Iowa or Illinois, or even lower Wisconsin/upper Missouri, just post in here. Hopefully we can get a better turnout this time. Ben you better come this time!!!

List (1/1)

Autocross Dates

Some Autocross Events in Iowa:
July 23 - PICNIC east overlook pavilion Coralville Reservoir ** SCCA
July 24 - Solo II Autocross Waterloo Greyhound Park
July 31 Solo II Autocross J.D. Davenport Works
Aug 6 Autocross - Corvair Club - IA International Raceway
Aug 7 Autocross - Mustang Club - IA International Raceway
Aug 7 - Solo II Autocross Waterloo Greyhound Park
Aug 21 Solo II Autocross Cordova Dragway
Aug 28 - Solo II Autocross Waterloo Greyhound Park
Sept 5 Solo II Autocross J.D. Davenport Works

The July picnic is a get together for the East Central Iowa chapter of Sports Car Club of America. They also put on autocross events. A very nice group of people to hang out (and race) with.

The Aug 6 -7 events at IIR are held on a highly respected kart track. This to me is the ultimate autocross event. The clubs typically Do Not restrict the track usage to members only. Meaning... Foci should be welcome.
Link to IIR Be sure to check out the aerial photo of the track. Aerial Photo link

I also like the August 7th event in Waterloo. I think that would be a more centralized location for everyone to meet up at. Classes start up again for me August 23rd, so I would like to get a G2G in before that date. Since the 7th is a Sunday, I think it would be cool to have a 2 day G2G this time. I thought that having a three day G2G last time was a little too much, but that was mainly because we didn't really have lots of things to do. Let's start putting our heads together

I really think that the Autocross event would be the shiznit :)

Cheers!

I might be able to make the August 7th one, but it all depends on who's gonna be performing at the MV Fair that day...I'd be cool with the Sept. 5th one too, if we want to make it a one day deal or something...If the August 7th one is cool with everyone, would that be a 2 day deal too?

I'm alright with that, but I doubt as many people from here are gonna go...we did have 4 people from the QC, but I think if we have it somewhere like...Des Moines or Iowa City, probably more people would show up from the middle of the state. I just want to get a little better turnout...

Yeah, it is. Not sure how much Marshalltown has to offer other than the kart track. I've always thought it would be an excellent autocross site and I hope to make it to an event there this fall.

No way I can make any weekend events for some time though.
