Default Pittsburgh Autocross Sept 16

The PittStop MINI Club is having an autocross that will be hosted by the North Hills Sports Car Club. The event will be at the North Park swimming pool parking lot on Saturday, September 16, 2006. This is a RAIN or SHINE event. For directions, visit:

The NHSCC puts on a first-rate SCCA style autoX, complete with optical sensor timing gates and computer recorded run times. If you are new to the sport, don't be intimidated by that information - we welcome and encourage beginners to come join the fun! There will be people available and willing to show you the ropes and even ride with you. If you are a veteran autoX-er, we expect you to get plenty of runs! (The NHSCC usually accommodates 150 cars and our turnout should be a fraction of that.)

The cost for current PittStop MINI Club Members is $25/driver. The price for non-members is $30/driver. Pre-registration will get you free hot dogs and soft drinks during the lunch break. Without pre-registration, hot dogs/soft drinks will be $5/person. You can pre-register (and pay) on our website at: (Please note that the online form is designed for use with Internet Explorer.)

Here is a basic schedule for the day (subject to change):

8:30-9:30 - Registration
9:30-10:00 - Tech Inspection, Walk course
10:00-12:00 - Morning runs
LUNCH BREAK (1 hour) - hot dogs and soft drinks provided by MINI of Pittsburgh
1:00-3:00 - Afternoon runs

We will be dividing the MINIs into 4 classes: Cooper stock, Cooper modified, Cooper S stock, Cooper S modified. A limited number of loaner helmets will be available. Snell rated helmets are required. Snell 85 (including M85) or newer are allowed.

Feel free to invite a friend. If you have a non-MINI driving friend who would like to come, they are also welcome to participate. (There's hardly a better time to show them what your MINI can really do!!)

Spectators are also welcome! Spectators also need to pre-register to get the free lunch. On the form, please denote drivers with a "d" and spectators with an "s" after the number, i.e., 1d2s would mean 1 driver, 2 spectators.

If you have any questions regarding your membership status or about the event, please feel free to email them to secretary (at) pittstopmini (dot) org.

Motor Happy!

Quick update on registration/price for the AutoX:

Because of the North Park vending guidelines, we cannot charge anyone for the dogs and soft drinks. So the pre-registration price will remain $25/$30 for members/non-members, but the price will be $30/$35 for those registering on Saturday. Food will be free to all registered persons (including pre-registered spectators as mentioned previously). It is basically the same thing as before, just different enough to be in compliance with the guidelines.

In a nutshell, all of this is meant to encourage pre-registration to aid us in our planning. Please sign up here.
