Next Meet: Sunday 7/25, Deland Airport AutoX

Next Meet: Sunday 7/25, Deland Airport AutoX

Postby 88SPG » Thu Jul 08, 2010 10:32 am

There had been some previous discussion about holding the next club meet on Sunday July 25th. This is an autocross event where you can drive your car in a "cone" course against the clock. I plan on attending, but have not figured out all the details. What I do know at this point is that you must register to drive in this event. There is pre-registration and day-of registration. I believe the cost is $25 for SCCA members and $40 for non-members. On-site registration is from 8AM to 9AM.
I found some more information at http://www.dlbracing.com/default.aspx , this appears to be the site you must pre-register through. Scroll down to Central Florida Region SCCA, 7/25 Autocross. Event is located at Deland Airport 1500 Matt Fair Blvd Deland, FL 32720.

Other information can be found through SCCA, we are in the Southeast Division (SEDiv), and this event is in the Central Florida Region (CFR).
Cheers and happy Saabing! :D

Yes, this is our next meet.

I have more details, but should be packing for vacation right now. I've been to this event last year, and know the lay of the land. More to follow.

I am now a member of SCCA.

Ted at AIT has been helping my wife and I get our '01 Viggen Conv ready and said Wed nite he'll go with his beast and see if we can put 3 or more Saabs in and have our own classsification to Convrun in. My wife's asthema has got her down under the weather a bit but if her meds perk her up she plans on driving her '03 9-3 SE in it. Our son Anthony was going but opted to go camping with his Uncle and cousins at Clark's Hill SC instead. He was also going to run in the SE.
Could use some more Saabs ot there.

[I removed some info about a past event to avoid confusion - GB]
Best Regards,
John and Barbara

I will post everything I know about this later tonight.

Anyone planning on running their car? I'll be there no matter what, but haven't decided if I want to give the cones a try or not. And I don't have a helmet.... yet.

I'll be seeing what my 87 feels like dropped, hollowed and running on 13" slicks feels like :)
I believe Ted will be running one of his collection. I think you should run your SPG Glenn!

If I run, it will be in the 9-3. I don't particularly want to break the SPG.

I hurt my left arm on Saturday... it needs to get better. And I still need a helmet.

More info coming.

CFR SCCA Autocross/SOLO II Event, DeLand Airport
Sunday, July 25, 2010

Schedule:
8:00am - 9:00am - Sign In/Registration
8:00am - 9:30am - Tech Inspection
8:00am - 9:30am - Course Open
9:15am - 9:30am - Novice Walk
9:30am - 10:00am - Driver’s Meeting
10:00am - 4:00pm (approx.) - Competition

Cost to participate:
SCCA Member, $25
Non-member, $40
There may be a charge for non-competing "crew"... $5 rings a bell, but I'm not positive. Maybe Ted can address this.

Autocross events are typically NON-SPECTATOR events.... HOWEVER due to the layout of this venue, it IS possible to pull up, park, set up a canopy, and hang out and watch for the day at NO COST. (see map below)

There are port-a-potty facilities at the track, but they are located in the participant section. Last year when I went, they were nice enough to let my family and me walk through the pits, use the potty, and walk back out. I can't gaurantee that they will be this nice to everybody again. But close-by (a quick 3 minute drive) are plenty of fast-food places and convenience stores in DeLand.

Here is a map of the venue, with some notes I made on it.
delandautox.jpg


Hopefully, a picture is worth a thousand words.

You come in off U.S.92 (International Speedway Blvd.), and head north on Marsh Rd.
You'll see the sign for Sperling Sports Complex... turn left on Matt Fair Blvd.
A little ways in you'll see a sign for some Radio Control Aircraft Club... turn left on that little dirt road. It's a bit bumpy.
Take that dirt road waaay back to the airport... you'll come out on a closed taxiway. Turn right.
If you're going to just "spectate", pull off in the grass on the left just before the taxiway starts to bend to the left.
Otherwise, continue on into the venue.

A Google Maps link: http://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&ie=UT ... 7&t=h&z=16

I am 85% participating. My are is getting a bit better, and the search is on for a Snell-rated hat.

Hey Glenn, when I looked at the SCCA website it mentioned that they have loaner helmets available.

Yeah, I know. It just sounds really disgusting to me, though.

I think I found a "cheap" Snell-rated helmet that I can get in the morning... I just hope they have size double-extra fat.

Nick and I had a great time, despite the blazing heat.

I wish we would have had a little more moral support, though!

What a blast! The heat was rough but the car performed great. Got a little cocky on my second lap and spun her 360, but kept going without missing a beat. So much fun. My fast lap put me in 4th out of 14.

Soooo much thanks to Ted for helping to make all this possible.

I guess my car does have a rev limiter :lol:

That's the only video I shot.

The car is running pretty good. If any problems at all, it seems a bit sluggish from a standstill. Once it's up and moving (over 20mph or so) it seems to be as good as it ever has been, if not a bit better.
