FAST Open Autocross - SUNDAY, Mar 11 @ Brooksville

Postby Loren » Tue Feb 13, 2018 8:44 am

This one's on a SUNDAY, y'all.

Our next event (Endurocross on Feb 24) is sold out already. Time to start thinking about the next FAST Open on March 11! There are some conflicting events both in Orlando and Ft. Myers that might draw away some of our regular and semi-regular drivers. But, I'm still feeling that it's very likely this event will sell out. As always, register early to be sure you get in and get into the session that you desire.

Registration & Event Info

Basic event details:
  • This is a FAST Open autocross, that means that it is open to all licensed drivers.
  • Novices and first-timers are encouraged to enter!
  • Pre-registration is REQUIRED for all Drivers AND Guests. We can't let you in the gate if you're not registered.
  • Driver entry fee is $39.99, guest entry fee is $7.99.
  • This will be a split-format event. You can enter the Early session 8am-12pm or the Late Session 12pm-5pm, or both.

Must still be winter. Late session is filling up a lot quicker than the Early session.

It's the first day of DST so everyone loses an hour's Sleep. My guess.

The last course at Brooksville was so much fun to drive, I am excited to see what the course will look like!

Are you familiar with this car? I find it stimulating if not odd.

I feel your pain. If one would win this thing in auction (from St Pete) they'd have to buy a pickup as the trailer comes with it. OMG :wise: I admit I put in a lowball offer yet I know there is a low limit reserve - maybe he's flakey? like me!! :lol:

I don’t remember seeing that Z at any local meets or auto crosses. He might post to some of the Z forums but I don’t frequent them anymore. Looks like an awesome Z! Good luck!

They all look familiar after a while. But, it's mostly the same as the late March 2017 course.

Might have to do something "unfamiliar" for the next Classic, though.
