2022 Nutmeg Miata Club Autocross –
July 9, 2022 9am to 5pm
Signup Starts April 1st – April 30th
For Club Members Only
Well folks, it’s time to start thinking about the annual autoX at LRP…finally.
Mark your calendars:
This year’s date is July 9th
The cost this year is $195 for club-members. Yes it has gone up. Think of last year as a free preview of the new and improved track, it is awesome! But we knew it didn’t happen for free. The goal is still to hold the event without the club loosing OR making money. The day is limited to 40 drivers. LRP has raised their price, and we will provide lunch and drinks.
Cost will be $215 for non-members, IF club members don’t fill up the spots. We are at record high membership, last year some Miata owners joined the club specifically to attend this event, and so I hope that this year can be an all member event as well.
So, let’s start off with…what is the Open AutoX?
· A full day of getting to know your car, under controlled conditions… and finding YOUR limits as well.
· Like previous years, this full-day event…9am-5pm. on the LRP kart track will consist of:
o Practice sessions on the upper course
o practice sessions on the lower course
o 3 solo timed laps (to qualify for the Shootout)
o And finally “fun runs” on the combined upper/lower course
· In addition, a driving-instructor will be on-hand, lunch will be provided and trophies will be presented. By the end of the day you’ll have much more seat-time than a typical parking lot autoX event!
Spectators are welcome to attend… SUBJECT TO RESTRICTIONS IN PLACE AT THE TIME… there is no cost to come and watch… you might even score a ride with one of the entrants or an instructor to get an idea of what this is all about. Again, subject to restrictions set by Lime Rock and the state, not the club. If a spectator would care to join in the lunch, we will ask for a donation to cover the cost of lunch and let us know a few days ahead. Everything related to non-drivers is subject to change at any time. Watch this thread and or the forums for updates as the time approaches. I’m leaving this paragraph in, just in case. Right now there does not look like there will be any issues, but as they say… CYA.
We’re offering slots to Nutmeg Miata Club members EXCLUSIVELY from April 1st – 30th. Club members may pay for one spot each. If Club members don’t fill the event we open it up to other Miata drivers on May 1st, and then if any slots are left to other types of cars. We will start a waiting list as soon as it fills, which came in handy last year. But there are no guarantees.
This is a Nutmeg Miata Club event, run by the club for its members and as such we do expect members to maintain their membership to participate in the club’s 2022 autocross event.
This is a rain or shine event…NO REFUNDS!!…if you have to cancel, YOU will be responsible for making arrangements to sell your spot. This will make things much easier on Bob and the Club. We can help with names off the waiting list, but ultimately, it will be up to you, the individual to get things sorted out. YOUR PAYMENT IS YOUR RSVP!!!!
You can make payment several ways…
· send a check to:
Nutmeg Miata Club
c/o Bob Barron
165 Rossi Dr.
Bristol, CT 06010
· Also PayPal payments (FRIENDS & FAMILY) – Be sure to reference AutoX and your name!
We will also take cash in person, but this is not the preferred method. PayPal is the fastest way to make sure your spot is secured. Check has to clear before your name added to list, so there would be a slight delay. Cash payment will be relayed to Bob, but has to get to a computer to add your name.
