Default NASA autocross! Sun Jan 23, 2011 at VMP

https://www.nasaproracing.com/event/1050

$30 mem / $35 non (in advance.)

Should be at least 5-6 runs each, big fun VMP course design as usual.

Alternate date due to weather is two weeks later, Sun Feb 6.

Aw man this looks like a blast, gonna have to think about this one. Only thing holding me back right now is the hour and 20 minute drive.

1h20 is nothing... people travel way further than that to go fast legally

Plus you don't have to be there until 10am (when registration and tech open.)

Shouldn't be confusing, the course design is a mini-roadcourse that runs the perimeter of the lot and has little to no crossover. So you're basically either going clockwise or counterclockwise. Sign up for a later heat so you can see how it's driven during the first heat, it all makes much more sense once it's happening in front of you. Also see the many in-car vids from VMP linked from http://www.nasaracing.net/autox.htm

I travel 2 hours and its damn worth it. Done it from everything to prepped cars to stock miatas to an automatic old lexus. Hell id probably do it in my Yukon if it was allowed (probably a good thing, id probably flip it).

You get way more runs than a typical autocross if your comparing it to another local autocross. Ill be signing up shortly, making sure my codrivers car isnt broke

The cones seem confusing watching the video's, but its much easier when there in person. You get to walk the course beforehand and you will get the "flow" of the course. If you want, someone will walk the course with you and even ride with you to get you going. Lots of people there to help and a very friendly atmosphere. Hope to see you there.

We had a Trailblazer SS there once with every seat full. Ran about as fast full as it did empty.
