Default Pre-Davis Autox 5/14/2011

It is with great excitement that I get to be the first to announce there WILL be an autocross the day before the 2011 GGVCOA Davis meet.

When: May 14, 2011, times to be announced
Where: Mather Airbase, exact location and directions to come.

Full details will come as I get them.

Right now we need volunteers for a friday afternoon/evening setup and run-thru, plus volunteers for saturday to help run the event.

Given my car is not broken in yet, I won't be running but I'll be there to help Mark with the event.

Who else is in?

Any rough idea on cost yet?

Probably $35-ish I'd guess, don't have details.

We are also going to be limited to around 40 cars or so, per the agreement. Once I have more details from Mark I'll post em.

And no, for the last time, I will NOT be autox'ing the 140. I'd love to, but the clutch is done for 'conservative' driving, let alone beating on it.

At least Eric won't be there, so the cone jockey's won't need to wear a helmet hopefully...

Oh, wait...Towery will be there....dammmit.

Thanks for the links Elizabeth! Hadn't had a chance to roll over to those sites after I talked to Mark earlier today.

Your room reservations have been verified. [there's no bed in the room though, still working on that part...but the carpet is thick & comfy]

I gotta get back to BigBret too, looks like he requested lodging at my place as well...

What's all this crap about Volvos?

Can non-Volvos run? I feel weird putting "2006 Pontiac" in the "About your Volvo" section...
