Awesome job!

What portion of the Met will be used? It is a part of the upper lot or is it the smaller bottom lot?

Jerry,

We'll be using a smaller portion of the upper lot. Approximately the same size as the ARCA Pad at Talladega. Hoping to be able to rebuild the relationship there and be have opportunities to rent a larger space (for a reasonable rate!) in the future.

Great! I don't mind it being smaller was just hoping it wasn't the bumpy lower lot.

Looking forward to having a season again!

We need to make some flyers or cards to hand out at all the car events around town. There’s a bunch every Saturday morning at Hoover Tactical firearms.

I wanted to give you all an idea of the space we're working with for the Met event next month. Below is the space for course, with grid, parking, and trailer being outside of the highlighted area.

We are very excited to be returning to the Met and to have a chance at rebuilding a relationship with the folks over there. We definitely hope for the opportunity to grow the space we are able to use. Hope to see you all next month!

Per John's suggestion, I made a flyer with info and our 2018 Autocross schedule and handed some out at Cars & Coffee this morning. Had about 15-20 younger guys that were interested. Maybe some will show up at our first event.

I went through the Kart Steward webinar training with Doug Gill the other night. I have not received anything back from National yet.

Will there be Karts allowed at this event?

At this time we do not believe the site is suitable for karts.

Default Won't make it 4/28/18

After I finally talked Ellis into driving the Mini, I found out that my cousin passed away, and therefore neither Ellis nor I will be at Autocross this Saturday the 28th. I don't know how, but I feel confident that the show will go on, without our shiny, sparkly personalities being on the scene. We will look forward to seeing everybody at the next event. Have fun all!

Hi all, are there any potential Solo events in December? I know there have been some in the past. I'm coming home to Bama for Christmas and trying to book flights to catch a Solo event if I can. Thanks!
