There was one last Sunday(13th) by the VW club and one at route 66 by the SCCA. Not aware of any next Sunday. I'll see if I have work that day. I usually don't start autoxing till May since I have school until the end of April and the last 2 weeks are a lot of work. I don't even have my summer tires on.

You have any more details on this? What club? Where is it?

I don't know of any others happening this month. I usually go by this calendar http://www.kempi.net/autox/ the ones with -in next to them are in indiana (tire rack), the rest are chicago or grayslake (about an hour north of chicago). I usually go to the one's run by the Windy City Miata Club and sometimes the VW ones. I don't see many Celicas there. There was a 3rd gen last year and once there was an All Trac.

i was at maywood park this past sunday with the vw club autox event. it was brutally cold out but it was still fun. i know theres another one coming up this sunday but i have work so i wont be able to attend. ive been to a few events last year with the vw club and one with the audi club. ill most likely be at all the cvo events.

Maybe we could get a little autox meet. I know the mr2 guys had a little get together last year, WCMC even made a seperate class for them. If not maybe the 3 of us can agree on a date and hit one of the events up. It would be cool to see more than 1 celica out there.

How was your experience with the Audi club? How many runs did you end up getting for the day. I've never autocrossed with them.

the audi club was fun. we got like 6 runs b/c they dont have a limit on how many can enter the event. they also provided a course map which was cool. like i said, ill be at most if not all cvo events at maywood. ive yet to see any other celicas at the autoxs.

I didn't go, too much school work to do, that ends next week though. I haven't even thrown on my summer wheels on yet. I wonder if crash went. Are you going to any of the ones in May? I'm still torn between going to VW or WCMC, maybe I'll go to both. The WCMC one is farther away but it's almost always 10+ runs, the parking lot isn't as grippy as Maywood but on the plus side it doesn't eat up my tires like Maywood does.

Yeah I couldnt go today either b/c of school work, damn UIC. Anyway Im still undecided about going to the cvo may 11th event b/c I might have family things going on. Where does the miata club hold their events? How much is the drivers fee?

Hmm, CLC is alot farther than maywood. Its over an hour compared to 35min to maywood, but who knows I might make one event.

It's not too bad of a drive, the highway is almost dead empty in the morning, it takes me a bit shorter than google's estimated travel times.

I still don't have my schedule for that week, hopefully I have that saturday off. If it checks out tomorrow, I should be there in a Miata :sneak:

yesterday was really fun. the audi people designed the course to be pretty fast so it was a blast. we got 10 runs so all in all it was a good time. one guy in a subie took out the timing equipment right before the last group got their runs in so they got their times with stopwatches. im sure they were alittle pissed but prob not as much as the subie guy b/c he had to buy the timing equipment haha.

Celica is done with its autocross duties. I would go with the Miata but the top is torn and it looks like it's going to rain. Hopefully I can get the top replaced next week.
