Default m|u at the San Diego National Tour :: March 16/17/18

SCCA National Tour - San Diego
March 16-18, 2007


The National Tour is a series of 10 events held around the country as lead up events to SCCA Solo Nationals in Topeka Kansas.

I will be running this event in H-stock as part of the 2007 Justacooper Autocross Season. Mark Ferguson from NAM will be joining me on Team Justacooper as my co-driver for the event.

These drivers come together to get a taste of the "Nationals" experience of competition and camaraderie as these events are presented in a format similar to that found in Topeka.

The competition at a National Tour takes place over two days on two separate courses, like Solo Nationals. The first day, competitors each get three runs or chances to drive one of the courses and on the second day they get three runs on the other course.

Schedule

Friday, March 16th
8:30 am - 11:00 am :: SCCA Cone Clinic - San Diego
11:00 am - 3:00 pm Test & Tune Course
5:00 pm - 7:00 pm Registration and Tech

Saturday, March 17
7:00 am Event site open/Course open for walking
7:00 am - 8:00 am Late check-in and tech (Pre-registered entrants only).
8:30 am Mandatory drivers' meeting
9:15 am Heat 1-5 competition
NOTE: Run order will be posted the Wednesday before the event

Sunday, March 18
7:00 am Event site open/Course open for walking
8:00 am Heat 1-5 competition
4:30 pm (approx.) Awards Presentation (following Heat 5)
NOTE: Run order will be posted the Wednesday before the event


Spectators

As I note above, the run order will be announced the Wednesday before the event. We will be running in H-stock. When I know the run order will post it to this thread and try to narrow down the times a bit that you could expect us to be running the event.

If anyone local would like to come spectate, that would be great. It's a chance to see some of the best autocrossers in the Western U.S.



Friday Night......

I'd like to get a little San Diego Motoring Underground get together on Friday night March 16th. Dinner somewhere local would be great. Suggestions welcome.

Well, you know I'm always down to check out some autocross action. Hopefully we won't be moving or anything like that on that weekend.

PM me with some more details like where you're staying and what you might like to eat, etc. and we can surely plan something. Maybe even a special trip to the kart track.

Also, I'm sure the SD heads will have some suggestions for food and whatnot. Hollis, Jacq, Sean, Stoo, Tuls, Nick, Sire, AMG (the new guy )... idears?

If I'm in town I'll try and stop by... as for food ideas??/ whatever - I'll eat anything if its cooked right (insert joke here)

I'd love to compete - but there isn't a class really for the GP - so, oh well.

Registration and Tech run from 5 - 7 PM Friday night at qualcomm, so sometime after that would be best.

How about we say 7:30 at Oggies on Friday Night

Oggie's sounds good. It might be tough to get a group of people into another place like Pizza Port where you seat yourself, plus it's a bit far from the stadium.
