Hot Damn! I've been wanting for something like this to come to this part of the country.....I'm not really into the autocross thing, but getting out on a track would be a blast (Always wanted to get on limerock). How much does it cost to participate in the events?

Interesting. This may give me the incentive I needed to choose track or auto-x as my primary direction.

Check at emraracing.org under time trials, or post the question on their forum, you'll get an answer

Are you going to just drive there in your car?? Thats the only thing I'm now contimplating. I almost want to hold of until I can get a trailer and something to tow it with. I'd hate to drive to the track and then have to worry about getting the car home after something breaks (Which you know will happen ) I'll go and be a spectator this year though just to see what its all about

I have plenty of buddies that would let me use a truck/trailer (I think), so I would probably do that. I would however like to just drive the car there and rock out, then drive home. But like you said, ***** going to happen and its better to be prepared for it rather than not. lol

One of my new years resolutions is to take the car to events this year. Whether it be autox, lime rock, shows, whatever. I just need to start using the car for what its made for.

Too bad June 19 at Monti was canceled. Any idea what the issue was there?

I will 95% sure be at the LRP event July 9.

To those guys worried about trailering to the event, don't. Just drive it. If I trailer it will only be because I can't find the right fuel, if I can carry 20 gallons of E85 I'll drive it.

Yeah, after seeing that schedule I'm out. 12+ hr drives not happening for me that often. Maybe we need to start a SouthEast chapter.

Any of you NoVa guys looking to do the Summit or NJMP rounds? Both look to be within 2-2 1/2 hours from DC.
