Pit Lane (aka; competition team) 
Autocross season is getting started soon and we’re just about ready to go. If you’re interested, please remember that we have loaner helmets (with sanitary head socks for helmet users) for our club members’ use. To secure a helmet for an event, contact Rich Velardo to be sure there’s a helmet for you at the event…there’s not enough storage room in a Miata to bring all of the helmets along to every event if they’re not going to be used.
We autox with the Akron Sports Car Club, if you’re ready to go for the whole season don’t forget to join ASCC, go to: to join. The cost for new members is $65 and gets you lower entry fees, $25 gift certificates for Summit Racing (use that to help pay for a new helmet) and you’ll get an option to pay $10/event to escape cone chasing duty. Find ASCC here; 
A helpful link that’ll answer some of your questions is   There’s a lot of information in the competition section of our website as well, including videos, maps of the typical autox layout, directions, suggestions & much more
Hope to see you on the autox course this summer.
Rich Velardo
Chairman, Competition Team

This page has Posts about upcoming Club Events including Around the World Dinners (AWD) and Lunches (AWL), Tours, Social Events, and some non-Club items of interest to members. Everyone is welcome at these events but please notify the designated Hosts by the stated RSVP Deadline.  Especially during these days of coronavirus restrictions, we must give the restaurants an accurate count.  Also very important that if you have signed up and cannot attend, let the hosts know so someone from the waitlist may attend. 
If you are planning a tour, please include starting and ending location and approximate miles/time so members may better determine if they might attend.  If you are a host or tour leader for an upcoming event please review your event on this page and the Club Calendar and email the webmaster with any corrections or updates.
