FAST Classic Autocross - Nov 3 @ Tampa Greyhound

Postby Loren » Sat Oct 06, 2018 12:13 am

Just as we were getting comfortable with the site, they've pulled the rug out from under us. That's right, this is our last autocross at the Dog Track! No more Tampa Greyhound Park for us. Another one in the "lost sites" column. :(

But, we're gonna make the most of this last event! Come join in on the fun!

This is a Classic event, which means fewer entries, more runs and no formal novice instruction. We do require all entrants to have competed in at least 5 prior autocross events so that they sort of know what they're doing (or enlist an experienced sponsor).

We'll be providing lunch for all registered drivers and guests at this event.

Registration is open until October 29. You might not want to wait until then, though.

This event is an open site, so guests only need to register if they want lunch.

This event is at Brooksville, so pre-registration is required for ALL drivers and guests.
Did the dog track get moved? :dunno:

Registered, sucks its the last event at that site. I really liked the courses there, plus having less grip to brooksville was a nice contrast to ave

I've driven 4 events, one of which was at this location and I really enjoyed it. Would anyone be willing to sponsor me so I don't miss the last event here?

Unfortunately I'm already sponsoring someone but I would like to add that he knows more than enough and would be easy to sponsor if some one hasn't offered yet.

Mr. Wilson Brummal was kind enough to sponsor my 240 and I. Although if anyone wants to drive or ride along, they're welcome to it!

Hell yeah man. We're gonna have a good time. This place looks like the dog track parking lot up in bham where i used to frequently autox (where our group was similarly kicked from). I'd love to take the 240 for a run to see the differences between it and the M3

I've been up there before, years ago. This site isn't as long and skinny as remember that one, and this pavement has far more sand on it, until the first heat clears a line. Similar contouring, though -- nothing is level!
