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

Weather should be a little cooler, and the earlier start contributes to avoiding the hottest part of the day. If you do only regular runs, and no TO's you could be on the road home by 10:30. I was last month. wink.gif So far looks like there WILL BE TO's this month.

Always great courses, and of course the great site. The more who partake, the more fun. Hopefully some SV and Northern area folks can trek on down for a great morning of autocrossing. I'd say "day", but it won't be all day. They're too smart for that during the summer.

Here is a link to their registration info: HERE

And for Mind The Cones Registration go HERE

If you've been missing playing with your car some lately, this is a great opportunity to fulfill that urge. Adjusted or added a few things? C'mon down and try them out.

See you there? beer.gif

I spent many great years autocrossing these cars, but my current requirements include AC, so unlikely I'll go back to these anytime soon. wink.gif

That said, I'm thinking that maybe someone here or a friend of someone here might still be playing with these cars. The Competition Manual is very rare.

Prices:

Either Sprite/Midget or MGB Manual....... $30 each, both for $50

MGB Competition Manual...................... $45

All three for $80.

I realize this is a shot in the dark, but one never knows. rolleyes.gif

Email or PM me for any info/details through Forum. Text me at Four Eight Zero-319-1028

Thx,
