Re: New Racer Hello/Questions

Welcome Owen! I am new, too. Sunday will be my first real event. I had the chance to go to December's practice: everyone was so helpful and the event was way more organized than I could have hoped for. Expect your expectations to be exceeded. :)

See you out there!

Re: Membership Poll...How long is too long?

If we cut back to three runs on Sunday so we could get you out earlier, would you consider attending? Or would you be more likely to attend with four runs delivered in a timely manner? As a novice, realistically at least my first two runs will be pretty slow as I learn the course and practice my li...

Re: Post Car Classing Help Questions Here!

Thanks for the tips, everyone. Check out the new look! https://i.imgur.com/sAlBitO.png?1 At least, that's the idea. We'll see how it actually looks in practice. Rick - Thanks. I ordered before I saw the update about Jay, but I'll definitely talk to him once this set wears out. Randy - you're defini...

Re: Membership Poll...How long is too long?

Hope it's okay for me to chime in here... it sounds like you guys are interested in hearing opinions from novices/millennials/casual members. I'm in my early thirties and I've attended exactly one previous event (the December practice). I'd love to compete and get more involved, but I'm wary of the ...

Re: Tires... what happened to them? Does it mean anything? What next?

Thanks for the reassurance! I was worried about my possible longevity in this sport if a set of tires was good for only a couple outings. What happens to the OPR, eventually? Does it fall off? Does it melt/merge into your tire? Does it just live there forever? I guess I'll find out... Smooth is fast...

Re: Post Car Classing Help Questions Here!

How do I arrange the letters? I'll be in Novice - A Street.

In a line with a space:

NOV AS
AS NOV

In a line without a space:

NOVAS
ASNOV

Vertically stacked:
NOV
AS

AS
NOV

Or... ?

A picture would be very helpful. :)

Re: 2018 Points Card....Apply Now...

I got my first points card. :)

What's the expected delay between purchase and the new registration showing up in the spreadsheet?

Tires... what happened to them? Does it mean anything? What next?

I came out for the practice session on Saturday 12/2 and had a wonderful time! It was so much fun zooming around, but the best part was the incredible friendliness and helpfulness of everyone I met - thanks especially to Randy for being my mentor for the day. :) I'm really excited about coming out i...

Re: Hello! Novice intro + tire pressure question

Thanks for the great information, George and Randy. Man, all that research I did trying to figure out the numbers and classes when it's just practice.... ;) oh well, now I know for the future. I was thinking about tire pressures not to affect performance, really, since I don't know what I'm doing, b...

Re: Hello! Novice intro + tire pressure question

A couple more questions: - The guide says that we'll be given a piece of paper with our 6xx number at the event. So I only need to bring the "NOV AS" printed sheet and some tape? - I read that shared cars need the number "1" on their class paper (SCCA 3.7.F). Is that correct? So,...

Hello! Novice intro + tire pressure question

Hi, My name is Danielle and I'll be coming out to this Saturday's practice for my first autocross event! (first racing event ever, actually) :) I have a 2005 Corvette Z51 6-speed convertible in Lemans Blue. The only mods are Corsa cat-back exhaust and the skip-shift eliminator . I have it on Micheli...
