I'm from southeast Michigan (about a half hour north of Ann Arbor) and am looking forward to doing some auto-cross and road racing this summer once I actually get my redline (another couple days, hopefully!). Anybody have information regarding where they are, when, how much to enter, etc.?

It'd be greatly appreciated.

There is a lot of them held at Grattan Raceway in which is in Belding just outside Grand Rapids. Also at Gingerman Raceway in South Haven. To find all the auto x races go to myautoevents.com. They have a list of a lot of events.

Right down the road which way? because I live in Hartland, which is roughly 20 min. south of Flint. I've heard they do auto-x races at my school (washtenaw community college) in the summer from a guy I know with a turbo Vibe, but I haven't heard from him in a while. Saw him on the road tonight, actually, but I digress. But I'll definitely want to race my Redline this summer.

Go to www.scca.org, click on solo II. There are two (or three, i forget) regions in our area. There are a lot of auto-x's, and if you're willing to travel, i think you can auto-x almost every weekend (between as far west as k-zoo, in ohio cinci and toledo, as far east as detroit, and as far north as midland). Hopefully i'll have my redline in 4-6 weeks (what saturn told me), and as soon as i get a few K miles on the car, oh baby, auto-x here i come!!!!!

Just got an email back from the guy running the class and stuff. I asked him if it was possible to apply for a membership on the spot. This is his reply.

It's really best to do it beforehand. The quickest way to take care of
it is to call the SCCA national office directly at (800) 770-2055. You
can do everything over the phone and they'll give you your membership
number right there on the spot which you can use to register.

Im gonna call today. I hear they take forever to process stuff by mail

Well I tried calling the SCCA twice today and was on hold for about 20 min. each time before I hung up. The hold music is terrible.

I wonder is the second one (Debbink, Bryan) is JPAPA?
Nope that isn't me. I just registered for the site though, but I haven't registered for SCCA or any schools yet. It's something that I really want to get into, but we'll see if I'll be able to this summer. Kind of afraid to since my RL is a lease...and budget will be kind of tight and I would want to buy seperate competition tires to use.

Hey everyone,

Unfortunatly I will not be able to attend this meet due to work. However, I may be able to attend Sunday's drive test as a spectator. See how you all do and whine about how I can't join in the fun.

Hope you guys (or Gals) learn something. Make sure you pass your new found knowledge to the rest of us. Enjoy and Be Safe
