Autocross Registration Now Open

For the final event Oct 17th, the paper work is signed and we’ll be trying out a new site. The Centennial parking lot at Great America, in Santa Clara. Where the 49er’s hope to be playing in a few years (and right across the street from their HQ and training faculties).

Courtesy of our sponsor, Silicon Valley Auto Group, we will have a nice BBQ cooked on site (tri-tip and chicken and garden burger for the veggies) along with all the trimmings, heck we’ll even have chairs and tables so everyone can sit down and enjoy it. Also thanks to SVAG we’ll have the trophies to give out to the season winners. Both Andrew and Jordan will be there. I’ll let Andrew address it the day of but they are planning a unveiling of the Evora shortly.

Autocross Registration Open (Aug 30, Sept 19 events)

We are now half way through the Golden Gate Lotus Club, autocross points season. Registration for both the August 30 (Sunday) and September 19 (Saturday) events is now open. Club members only, will be allowed to sign up, for the first week.

For our final event of the season in October, we are looking at a change of venue. Most likely it will be a few weeks before we get everything worked out. The site is where the 49er’s hope to make their new home. The Great America parking lot in, Santa Clara. It’s quite a bit larger then the Marina location with some elevation changes thrown in. Still a TBD…

Thanks,

Registration for GGLC Autocross Points event #3

Registration is set to up open first thing tomorrow (June 18) for the July 18th, Saturday points event #3 (of 6) autocross.

http://www.motorsportreg.com/index.cfm/event/event.advert/uidEvent/EB52BFDE-B462-4DC9-E41A05DD70AF48DA

The usual drill. Club members only can sign up in the first week, then it opens up to everyone. Limited car count and at least 12 runs for everyone with lunch being brought on site. Coaches available for pretty much every session to help out if needed / wanted.

Running in the points series is not required, you can simply treat this as a excuse to take your car out for a *spin*.
