last year’s event proved to be immensely popular, and filled up early.
So, lets 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 be consist of:
Practice sessions on the upper course
practice sessions on the lower course
3 solo timed laps (to qualify for the Shootout)
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!
The cost is $150 for club-members ($160 for non-members); limited to 40 drivers.(Cost is the same as last year.)
SPECTATORS WELCOME TO ATTEND…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. If a spectator would care to join in the lunch, we will ask for a donation to cover the cost of lunch…TBD as the event time approaches…in cash at the time of the event.
We’re offering slots to Nutmeg Miata Club members EXCLUSIVELY during the month of February…that’s right…ONLY NMC members with paid up membership can sign up from Feb 1-29.
Starting March 1st we open it up to other Miata drivers and then if any slots are left to other types of cars. After that, we will start a waiting list, which came in handy last year due to last minute family emergencies.
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.
Warning Last Year This Event Sold Out As Soon as we opened it up to non-members so if you are interested get your payment in before the end of the month.
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
MUST be Friends / Family. PLEASE.
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 has to wait until Bob gets to a computer to add your name.
Watch this thread for any additional information as we go forward…and there WILL be additional information…this is just a little something to get us started and the early signups started, as announced at the planning meeting.
