June's meet will be at the Buckingham Airfield located in Fort Myers. A lot of people don't know this but Buckingham Airfield is one of the best autocross sites in the country. Check out this short video to see what it's all about
On Saturday morning, 1 June 2013, the good folks of Gulfcoast Autocrossers, Ltd., (Home of the Gulf Coast Autocrossers
) will hold a "test & tune" and Novice School. Cost is $25 per driver and includes a great day testing your car and your driving skills and showing off to friends and family.
But wait…it also includes lunch (burger or hot dog lunch, and a drink. Some people also bring other things to eat like sandwiches and plenty of non-alcohol drinks)! Reasonably priced food items will also be on sale for spectators.
Please arrive no later than 8AM for registration. The Novice Class will start promptly at 9AM and there will be no late entries for the school.
If you want to drive your car on the course, you should bring a helmet. However, if you don't have one some loaners are available. If you'd rather just be part of the club meet that day, hang out and not drive, that's great too!!! You will be able to watch and cheer on club members as they attempt to impress us!
Each car on the track must have identifying numbers. The course follows SCCA standards when it comes to numbering standards. The numbers should be a minimum of 8" tall, with a bold stroke, no less than 1.25" thick. Class letters must be a minimum of 4" tall with a 0.75" stroke. Additionally, the colors selected should be of high-contrast as compared to your car color. They should be easily readable from the timing and scoring RV. You must have your car number, and class letters installed, before tech inspection. Paper numbers and class letters are available for sale in the tech area and are $1 each. Shoe polish and tape numbers ARE NOT PERMITTED (but a little birdie told us that sometimes they permit tape--two inch painters tape would be recommended).
It is suggested you bring lawn chairs, ice chest with plenty of drinks, extra food if you wish, sunscreen, hats, cameras, etc.
