Duration: 1 Day

NEW Sunday, June 9 – Tidewater Sports Car Club – Suffolk Special Event (Autocross).  What is autocross is a timed competition where drivers navigate one at a time through a temporary brief description course marked by traffic cones, rather than racing on a track Autocross?  If you’re not familiar with what it is here is; Autocross is a form of motorsports that emphasizes safe, low-cost competition and active participation.  An with multiple other cars, as in road racing or oval racing.  Autocross tends to place more emphasis on car handling and driver skill than on sheer horsepower, and events typically have many classes which allow almost any vehicle, from economy sedans to purpose-built vehicles, to compete.  Speeds are slower in absolute terms when compared to other forms of motorsports, usually not exceeding highway speeds, but the activity level (measured in driver inputs per second) can be higher than even Formula One due to the large number of elements packed into each course.

 

This is a rain or shine event and will be at the Suffolk Airport.  Several years ago the BCC was very active in Autocross but that has since changed.  Several Beachcombers have expressed an interest in this sport and I don't know much about it, so if you're interested this might be an opportunity for all to see first hand what it's all about.  If you're familiar with Autocross and would like to participate please go to www.tidewatersportscarclub.com for additional details and rules.  If you'd like to take a drive and be a spectator, meet me at Greenbrier Mall adjacent to Abuelo's Mexican Restaurant at 10:30 a.m.  Bring a lawn chair and a cooler (No Alcohol Allowed).
