Newbie Autocross Coach….. Rich Velardo
If you think that you just might want to give autocross a try, but you’ve held back because of all the uncertainties that face a newbie, all that you need to do is ask Rich Velardo (Click to email). Since Rich is “grounded” for the next few months with a repeat shoulder surgery and cannot drive on an autocross course, he is volunteering to help others get started in autocross.
Rich can help with your arrival, tech inspection, sign in, walking the track, generally help you through the whole process of getting started. He also has a loaner helmet that you can borrow and will be your own personal coach to walk you through everything and even ride along with you on the course. In short, you’ll get everything that you need to do your first autocross – including even printing your car numbers & class letters for you if need be. All you need is your car and the desire to have fun learning what you and your car can do.
Just let Rich know which event you’d like to try.
