    Well folks…you have been really quick on the draw getting payments in on the first day…at a RECORD pace.

     

    I talked to Bob about an hour ago…he has 21 payments in already.

     

    Once this event fills, we will start a waiting list as we have done in past years.  heads up…we ALWAYS get a couple folks in from the waiting list, usually in the last week before the event

    nothing special required.  You are responsible for the condition of your car.  As long as nothing is loose or falling off, you are good to go

    A little more information…

     

    This is a RAIN OR SHINE event.  no ifs ands or buts

     

    NO REFUNDS FROM THE CLUB.  This is a popular event and it always generates a waiting list.  If for some reason you cannot attend…broken car..broken bone..didn’t check the family calendar…whatever

     

    We will put someone from the waiting list together with the person that needs to drop out and they can work it out.  Our Treasurer, Bob, has enough on his plate taking care of things.  We tried that a few years back…that dog don’t bark.  Not going back there

     

    We have ALWAYS pulled names from the wait list…sometimes sooner…sometimes later

    Kieth,

    Thanks for letting us know, looking forward to a great day. Hopefully we will get this rainy stretch out of the way, fingers crossed for good weather.

    Can’t believe AutoX is upon us.  Time flies for sure!

    Speaking of flying, it not going to be me.     I will do the same thing I did from previous Nutmeg autoX…that is to learn as much as I can, know my car’s handling traits and  not to break my ND RF club BBR turbo.

    Having said that, rain is not going to be a deterrent for me.   However, this may affect lap times for some but at the end of the day, we are so fortunate for having an opportunity to AutoX ALL-Day at Lime Rock Park at a third if the price!

    It is going to be great.

    Respectfully

    Thanks for letting us know, looking forward to a great day. Hopefully we will get this rainy stretch out of the way, fingers crossed for good weather.

    So looking forward to this. Can’t wait to learn more about car control. Hopefully the weather is nice but if it rains I guess we’ll be practicing drifting!

    In regards to the ‘scenic route’…up 63 out of Litchfield to the rotary in goshen…then take Rt 4 towards Cornwall…at the flashing light go straight to West Cornwall across the covered bridge…then straight across Rt 7 from the covered bridge onto West Cornwall Rd. then right onto white Hollow rd, which takes you straight to the track entrance.

    THAT is the scenic route…and very entertaining

    We could meet up in downtown Litchfield where route 202 and 63 cross?  Some time in the morning I assume? Anyway just a thought.

    So it sounds like some of us are going to meet downtown Litchfield on July 8th before heading up to lime rock taking the Scenic route that Joe Wall suggested. Just need to know what time everyone wants to meet? is 10am to early or too late. Let everyone know.

    Thanks, Keith Alfier

    I would definitely meet up in downtown Litchfield but the event starts at 9, and I’d like to get there on the early side.  Probably be heading thru Litchfield around 8:30?

    I’m going just as a spectator therefore we do no need to be st LR at 9:00. Since we live an hour from litchfield it would mean leaving at 7:30 for a 8:30 meet. If anyone else going as a spectator wants to meet a bit later in the AM I’m in. Otherwise see you all there at lime rock.

    For the spectators…arriving at 9am is ok…if you want a long day…the early portion is getting organized and divided into groups, going over what we will be doing, etc

    things start in earnest with cars doing practice runs about 9:30…then timed runs at noon, along with lunch, and after the timed runs, its pretty much open lapping until 5

    plan accordingly…bring sunscreen…stay hydrated…bring a chair…lunch will be available at the event for spectators…I think last year we asked for $10..or maybe $8??…maybe Bob Baron can correct me if different…cash only

    Fellow members,

    I am sad to say I am no longer able to attend the 2023 NMC AutoX this Saturday. Just today I was assign to an emergency building infrastructure inspection set at the lucky day of 7/08….

    That being said, it is what it is and I hope to attend next years event. Which member shall I now contact to arrange spots?

    So my timing belt snapped and I had Mazda of Milford do the repair, I noticed I was leaking coolant from the radiator plug and noticed it had been snapped off at the head. It seems like it may have been overtightened. I’m trying to fix so I can attend the AutoX but right now dead in the water. Does anyone have a trick to remove a broken radiator plug? I’m going to post on the tech forum as well. Thank you.

    Hello all,

    I apologize for the short notice, but I am not able to participate in the Autocross this Saturday and would like to give up my spot to another member who wants it. My Miata has been having trouble starting and I thought I had the time to fix it before the 8th, but I’ve unfortunately had far too little time to work on it. I hope someone can step up and take advantage of my spot despite the short notice, and that everyone has a great time at the event!

    Just a little reminder…the following information was posted here in this thread back on March 11

     

    This is a RAIN OR SHINE event.  no ifs ands or buts

     

    NO REFUNDS FROM THE CLUB.  This is a popular event and it always generates a waiting list.  If for some reason you cannot attend…broken car..broken bone..didn’t check the family calendar…whatever

     

    We will put someone from the waiting list together with the person that needs to drop out and they can work it out.  Our Treasurer, Bob, has enough on his plate taking care of things.  We tried that a few years back…that dog don’t bark.  Not going back there

     

    We have ALWAYS pulled names from the wait list…sometimes sooner…sometimes later

     

    Unfortunately, we have exhausted the names on the waiting list as of last weekend…Angela has sent out two email this week to the general membership with this subject being the top line…open spot for saturday

    So many people to say thanks but you know who you are…Nutmeg club officers, AutoX drivers, Instructors, Co-drivers, volunteers, and most importantly our Nutmet Club espectators.  Thank you for coming out and make our AutoX @Lime Rock Park a fun and safe club event!

    Also want to congratulate our fastest lap times for the entire AutoX track.

    I learned many important aspects of my car’s handling traits specially at the limits safely on the track.

    My car is ready for the MATG 2023!

    Couldn’t have said it better myself, Levi. Thanks to everyone involved for making it a fun filled day, and especially to the guys working the track, sweating it out to keep us safe and happy. Hope to return the favor someday some way. I got the chance to really drive the car to its limits for the first time.
    I did notice it’s time to change clutch fluid as the pedal started to get all wonky as the temps rose. Wondering if I should just go ahead and replace everything as a preventative measure…. no idea when or if the cylinders have been replaced. Maybe bleed it for now and save replacement for the fall tech day? Hmmm.

    A huge thanks to all the club members and officers who make this such a great event.  The camaraderie just can’t be beat.  I know I don’t attend too many events, but I really look forward to this one every year. I had a lot of fun catching up with people I haven’t seen in years (Fred Wright!) and meeting other members for the first time.

    Thanks to Joe, Dave, Bruce, Rob, Levi, Keith Lynch and the LRP staff (Stephen Huntley and Ryan King) for directing traffic and keeping us safe out there. An extra special thanks to Joe for getting my car ready. 😉

    For those that are interested, here are my timed runs: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OWcTGLxtg1o

    When’s the next one? 🙂

    Hello everyone,

    I created a short video of the Lime Rock AUTOX day and below is the link to it.

    Many thanks to Peter Amato for converting my video and adding it to the AUTO Newsletter

    It was such a fun day I wanted to document it.

    @Keith, you captured great highlights of the event.  Thank you for sharing!

    I Loved seeing RED PPR moving.  It felt so much faster driving her.  I need to start shifting gears instead of leaving it in 3rd gear and letting the turbo torque move her around.

    Thanks again for sharing the video!

    Sorry to revive an old thread, but I miraculously found a way to salvage the pictures off my memory card thanks to a Cannon forum. Anyway here’s a link to images I thought were not junk! As usual feel free to download, print, etc. If I missed you I apologize, I had my hands full most of the day, and pictures weren’t the top priority.
