Any autocross events in San Diego with decent seat time?

Post by Curves »

When I owned a Boxster-S, I was spoiled by the PCASDR events - 12 runs on 2 minute courses. I only ever went to one SCCA event during that time because I could never get motivated enough to drive down, tech inspect and work cornors just for 3 50 second laps.

I'm not interested in trophies/competing in a class, I just like to go out and explore the limits of my car.

Are there any autocross events in San Diego for my MX-5 with decent seat time?

If I recall, PCA will let you run a non-P-car if you keep your membership.

The SCCA practice days get a good 12 run or more...

BMW club has some fun events that also allow a certain number of non-BMW..... and their next event on August 5 is a "running continuous laps" event....

I intentionally purchased a PRHT so as to not be tempted to put in a rollbar and take it to the track. But the canyon runs have got the better of me. I'll just have to check these events out :mrgreen:

Maybe I should have purchased the soft top :roll:

Next - I need to call Brian soon and arrange to take my car down to him for a suspension upgrade :mrgreen:

There is a no-work autox at the Q this weekend at the import car show Extreme Autofest. Course design and timing is being done by http://jaycomservices.com/ who has plenty of experience with SCCA and Rallycross events.

No, we just need Brain/AWR to figure out how to get us a decent rollbar for our PRHT's. I really like the double hoops for the non-PRHT's Good-win sells...hint, hint.

Everyone keeps saying that. Even Moti at Blackbird said "I'm creative but cannot bend space and time" LOL!

So Brian, have you sat in a car the Harddog PRHT bar installed? Will I be able to use the rear view mirror? Looks like it would be directly in my line of sight. I do have my stock GT seats dropped a little over 2". Perhaps that would make it better...or worse? If I didn't work 50+ hours a week I'd fab my own bar(s).

Curves, et al,

Sorry I went off topic with the rollbar talk. Let me go OT again.

Curves, what year was your Boxster-S? How does it compare overall to your NC? I'm genuinely curious about a Boxster or Cayman as a future ride.

EDIT to go back on-topic: Porsche club event is this Sunday. Come on down. I'll be in my '08 car #501x
