Not unfortunate, just the truth.

^yep

Tracks want more money that SacVCOA/GGVCOA can/wants to throw down. One year I remember we even needed to take additional donations just to cover the AutoX costs since there weren't enough participants.

AutoX is fun, but still costs (thankfully not as much), but then the issue is getting a spot for it. Unless you have somebody with an "in" somewhere, it's hard to approach a business and say "hey can we go racing in your parking lot?". Vast majority of the time, businesses will be put off by it for liability reasons.


That said, while I do miss the AutoX events, I like what we did in 2015 and will be doing this year in 2017. A Scenic drive route (with fast/slow groups) that's free to attend and takes us through some beautiful Sacramento-area scenery, and then indoor karting for the more competitive of us. It was a win/win in 2015 since it gave people the opportunity to drive their cars fast and carve up some corners (or drive slow and enjoy the scenery), and then head over to karting for some tangible results.

The Car Show / Swap Meet takes place at Central Park Gardens in Davis, with the entrance at the intersection of 3rd and C streets.

Motel 6 is at 4835 Chiles Rd. They're about 4mi apart. It's a 5-7 minute drive, and Google puts it at about a 1hr walk.

If your car doesn't want to start in the morning, you could always bum a ride with somebody. There are plenty of people who go back to Motel 6 to stay Sunday night before driving home on Monday, or go after the show to hang out a little bit more before going home.

I've "done" all of Davis weekend without even having a car there. Just hopped into various people's cars as we'd head to different events. With permission, obviously.

Same here [year and a half.] I think offering to DD with a rally car might encourage everyone who drinks to get smashed.

I can DD as well, but you'll more than likely be riding in a Volkswagen.

Crush it now and regret it later
We need laws for states to check for cut springs on vehicles. Mandatory background checks and and licenses suspended for 10 years. Report cut springs
