FAST Open Autocross - May 4 - Dunnellon

Postby Loren » Sat Apr 06, 2019 8:23 pm

We're going to try a FAST Open event at Dunnellon for the first time. We've been there enough times that we know the site pretty well and the event should go as we all expect it to. We are keeping the total number of entries a little lower than typical this time, though. So, if you're chasing points, you might want to get registered sooner rather than later to ensure your spot!

The schedule is also a little different with later start times than typical. Be sure to look at that.

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 $45, guest entry fee is $9.
  • This will be a split-format event. You can enter the Early session 8:30am-1pm or the Late Session 1:30pm-6pm, or both.
  • Snacks and cold beverages will be provided for all registered drivers and guests.

Hello, I need to cancel for the May 4th event but did not see how to do that through Motorsport registration and did not want to register again by mistake.

Log in to MS Reg, find your events list. Next to each event you are registered for, there should be an appropriate link to Edit or Cancel.

No cancel button to be found. When I go to my events list (Dashboard) the only option I have is to edit my entry which loops me back to the registration page.

As mentioned above, log in, look at your event list.

Then, either click the event date, or click the "event dashboard" link. Either of those will take you to a page with a bunch of options. The bottom option is "cancel registration".

Do that.

I'm trying hard to recruit some first timers. We shall see...
Looking forward to a different course. I'll have new re-71 shoes and tie rods and alignment and secured battery and fixed window regulator and fixed oil leak. It'll be like a brand new car at this rate! Eesh! :roll:

I just found out my co-driver won't be able to make this one.
So, I'll be looking to bum a ride. Be you a noob who's looking for a coach, or a seasoned veteran who wants a good butt-kickin' some friendly competition, I'm not picky. :angel:

Looking forward to my first Dunnellon event! Hopefully it doesn't seem too far so I can make more while we search for more sites!

Steve, I'd offer you another ride but I'm letting Kevin (S3 Focus ST) take the Miata for an event as he tries to contemplate getting one. Lol

Maybe you just need to pull a Philip and car-whore for the day? Driving the same car for all of your runs is highly over-rated.

Just accept it, he's going to beat you :lol: . Anywho it's good to get wooped in your own car, it really opens your eyes on what you're lacking in, unless you're pretty damn good already then carry on, woop him!
