Simply as an FYI, especially for the newer Drivers, is to acquaint you with what results could look like without the special handicapped Groups (PAX1, NV1, etc.)
I included Novices in the Open Results just to show them how they would fare in Class Competition. Also left PAX Ladies and Novice Ladies a separate.

There are about five corrections to Classing yet to be made, did not correct those. Not important here.

>There is absolutely a need for having those extra combined class Groups, as many Classes do not have enough cars to even form a Class.

But some of you may often have other drivers who could be in your Class if everyone simply chose "Open" Group.

So this is just an informal peek at "what if". smile.gif No sales pitch, no proposal. wink.gif

Anyone experienced interested in taking this on as a side job? I could do it, but getting too old to work on the cars of others.
Gotta save my energy for my Mustang. wink.gif

He has the correct (front only) camber bolts from Tire Rack, it's a 2006 Civic SI. Of course
he would need the front alignment adjusted to spec afterward. That's the whole point. laugh.gif

He lives in Surprise, but would travel some if needed.

Please PM or email me for questions/details/info (both are in my contact info; click on name and member profile).

I mean, what good is that swell car if it just sits in the driveway or garage looking back at you? Yeah, not much. rolleyes.gif

So, let's do a little looking ahead to the next opportunities to go out and have some fun with your great toy. The more, the better. cool.gif

All Phoenix Events (Az. SCCA and PCA) are at Arizona Motorsports Park, all Tucson Events are at the Marana Regional Airport, and the Sierra Vista Solo events are as shown. The Sierra Vista Municipal Airport is closest to us Northern folks of their two sites, and special, with a very good concrete surface. PCA Events are open to all makes, membership not required.

Marana is about 90 minutes south of Wild Horse Pass (a good freeway reference point), and Sierra Vista about 3 hours south of WHP.

Each venue's website has more specific details about location, pricing, classing and more.

Hope you find this helpful as you plan your automotive calendars for the rest of this year. smile.gif

(I took these dates from Club Websites. Let me know if there are any errors).

Just in case some of you greater Phoenix-area autocrossers are lusting for a great autocross experience, thought I would mention it here that Sierra Vista is hosting an Autocross this Sunday (August 6th) at their fantastic Municipal Airport. First class concrete surface, challenging and fun courses, and a great group of fellow autocrossers running the show.

Look HERE for some more info, or go to their Website.

Treat yourself to something special. Take your "plus-one" too. Glenda always has a great time down there no matter what car I happen to own at the time. tongue.gif

Still time to enter. It is indeed a drive down there (about three hours south of Wild Horse Pass), but hotels are inexpensive this time of year if you want to make an overnight out of it. Plan a great dinner Saturday night, and a nice breakfast the next morning, before going out to the event.

PM or email me if you would like some Hotel or Breakfast info, or for any other questions. smile.gif

PS: Forgot to mention a high of 85 degrees this Sunday in SV, about 17 degrees cooler than Phoenix. 👍 Bonus points.🏁

OK, it's two weeks away, a little early maybe to mention this, but for us out-of-towners actually a good time to start making plans.

Phoenix is not doing any Summer Autocross Events, so there is some down time. Marana does offer some relief by filling that urge each month over the summer. Just had a great relatively cool event there last Sunday. smile.gif

BUT......... Only a few times a year, the Sierra Vista Club is allowed access to their Municipal Airport, a larger lot with top grade concrete. Yes, if you close your eyes, one could imagine what it might be like at the SCCA Nationals, as they too have airport concrete (do they still?).

So, anyway, Sunday August 6th is a little less than two weeks away. Sierra Vista is about 3 to 3 1/2 hours from Phoenix, so it is a drive. Some of us are able to make a little overnight out-of-town trip with the opportunity, with hotel rooms around $50-$75 or so. Some younger-types have done it all in one day, I'm just too old for that anymore. wink.gif Drive down Saturday afternoon, check in to your Motel, lots of good restaurants for a nice dinner, go to breakfast the next morning, then out to the event. Perfect!

SV is also a lot cooler, and is hosted by a great group of SCCA people who know how to put on a great event.

So, if you'd like an extra event this summer, and are looking for something a little special and unique, why not just put this on your calendar and try it out? Give yourself (and even "plus-one") a special treat, automotively speaking.

Wouldn't it be great if a sizable northern contingent from Tucson, Phoenix, and perhaps even regions north all decided to make it down this August 6th? You will be glad you did.

Hope to see some of you there. beer.gif
