FAST Autocross - Oct 6 - Dunnellon

Postby Loren » Wed Sep 12, 2018 2:03 am

Hey! Dunnellon. Oct 6. Get registered!

Dunnellon isn't as far aways as you might think. Only about an hour North of Brooksville. Short trip for people who live up that way, and a quick run up I-75 (or US-41... or US-19) for Tampa area folks. We start our Dunnellon events a bit later, so you'll have plenty of time to get there.

This event will be open to all drivers, just like a FAST Open event, but it won't be a part of our Championship series. It will be run more like a Classic event, casual and fun, but without the experience requirement of a Classic. It's "just an Autocross", come on out and have some fun!

If you know any autocrossers (or people who might become autocrossers) who live in the Ocala/Gainesville area, be sure they know about this event!

We'll be providing lunch for all registered drivers and guests at this event, too!

NEW PROCEDURES: Starting with this event, we will have an escort to cross the active runway. You WILL NOT be able to come and go as you please, even at the end of the event. We must wait for the truck with the flashing lights and radio to escort us safely across that runway! 

Registration is open until October 1. Get registered!

All drivers AND guests must pre-register, this is a closed site.

Hey! We've added a Dunnellon CHAMPIONSHIP!

It's separate from the main FAST Championship. 4 events. We've revised our Dunnellon classing, too.

We're edging up towards 50 drivers for this event!

I expected more in the PAX class. Y'all afraid of Ben, or what?

yes...and don't tell Ben he's beating best M4 times...at least not for a few more weeks. When he's in earshot, mention to someone that you heard about someone else's chipped Fiesta blowing an engine.

happy to move to PAX

Ben's FiST is stock. All he has to worry about is breaking the transmission. Again. :silent:

Sorry I'm missing your Dunnellon (didn't get my l's worth) event. Present cars don't really fit into the scheme of things and I'm chasing rainbows this week. The course is nice tho'. Not Ben friendly.

I am vehiculing. Is that a word? It is now. We will deal with it later.

If it isn't worth doing don't do it. If you don't do it you won't ever know if it was worth doing. Such is life.
