Re: Post Car Classing Help Questions Here!

Thanks again for the reply! Though I just wanted to confirm or not, do you still have to pay to attend each event, if you have a membership? For example, if I purchase a year membership, will I have to pay on top of that to attend each event. And is Saturday and Sunday seperate events? Would I have...

Re: What is the minimum number of events this year to qualify for a year end trophy?

Ok so do at least three drivers need to be at each event for it to count? Will Santa Anita count towards final number of events? Yes, Santa Anita will count and assuming we will have an October event at Santa Anita, that will be 13 for the year so you need to compete in at least 6 events and those ...

As soon as docs are signed all will be revealed. Google maps Santa Anita and you can see which lot has been used for autocross before. While this is short notice, this is the date they offered and we are eager to establish a relationship.

KJ,

Thank you, sir!

Just to update you on the FJ kart, it was sold, ended up being sent to Anchorage Alaska and is the first know SCCA FJ kart in the 50th state.

Talk about a short season!
