Default Speed Ventures "No Work" Auto-X November 19, 20

Woo hoo! Another Speed Ventures Auto-x is almost here. These event rock as there is no working at Speed Ventures events! All you do is run, rest, and spectate. The entry field is usually pretty low, so there are a lot of runs to be had.

Speed Ventures uses one of the infield parking lots for the event. Unlike some other auto-x's that have courses that are massive and fast, the small area Speed Ventures uses is a technical-compact 35 second course.

The cost for the event is $65.00, but is worth it for the amount of runs you'll get AND you don't have to work.

More info can be found at www.speedventures.com Click on Events, and you'll see the AUTOCROSS at AutoClub Speedway.

I am not sure what day I'll be attending, but I'm leaning towards Saturday. If you wanna get whooped by a 100hp economy car, then come join me!!

Heads up on this, the event price will go up as the date gets closer. Also, I need to decide which day, would be best. Saturday will probably be easier for people, and Sunday we'd get more runs. Of course, that is not fact. The last two events held had very low attendance, I know this because day before those events Speed Ventures sent out an email to all those on their auto-x mailing list saying so.

Personally, I'd like to auto x on Saturday. But I'm fine with either day, as long as some of you come out!!!!!

I'm gonna drop the hammer down on Saturday. It's as good a day as any to auto-x.

I'd be down for this if it wasn't for the Bonelli GTG. There is supposed to be some crazy rain this weekend Paul. Friday night and Saturday are supposed to be the worst of it. Sunday might be better for the weather.

But the event is next NEXT weekend Wes. Hopefully there will be no rain, but if so, it'll make for a fun autox. You should totally come.

Update on how many people are attending each day. Saturday is 39, Sunday is.... 9. So Maybe Sunday would be better. Also the price has gone up. It is know $70, and may creep up again as the day gets closer.

So with the prices creeping up, I've decided to forgo the event in favor of saving it towards a trackday.

Sorry guy's $70 is worth it for not working at an auto-x, but for double that I can do a track day and get A LOT more seat time.
