PostHeaderIcon Season Ending Solo

Hello everyone,

As the conclusion of the autocross season nears, New York Region of the Sports Car Club of America will be hosting a food drive in conjunction with our final points event of the 2014 season. We are fortunate to be having fun, but for others they more pressing needs. We can help them. The food drive will be donating all collected food items to Island Harvest.  Island Harvest has been aiding hungry Long Islanders since 1992 and we would like to help them in their cause. In addition to your usual registration fee, we are asking you to any non-perishable item or canned good, even pet food for this food drive. We will have a volunteer at the food collection boxes on the sidewalk to help pack everything. We hope that your friends, co-workers and family will donate as well in your name. 

NYR will reward the entrant who the most donated food.  To the active participant of the event that donates the most food, even with the support of people acting on behalf of your to donate, shall win a free entry for an NYR-SCCA Solo event for next season and a T-shirt.  
Information and online registration can be found here{www.msreg.us/nyr2014-9}. Walk up registration closes that morning at 9AM.
The Coliseum is hosting an event indoors on the 27th, so make sure to arrive early or you will need to pay to enter the lots.


See you there!

Never autocrossed (autoX)?

Never autox’d? Here’s what to expect at an NYR event…

Before the event:

Car preparation - nearly any car is OK. No trucks or minivans. If it’s OK driving ever day, then it is fine for an event day. As long as it has no fluid leaks, the seat belts work, the battery is secure, and the tires are not showing any cords, you’re going to pass our tech inspection! Modified your car, check the SCCA rules or this quick sheet for your class http://www.azsolo.com/classes/car_class_worksheet_2009.pdf

What to bring – Anything you think you may need for a full day. Food, beverage. Extra stuff for the weather. A large bin to store everything you take out of your car so it doesn’t blow away. Some friends. Money for registration or a print out of your online registration.

The day of the event:

The day starts early. Plan to be at the site when registration opens. Register online if possible, it saves a lot of time for you. Then it’s time to empty out everything that is not bolted down inside the car and in the trunk. Put your numbers and class on both sides of your car and head to tech. Park your again and go walk the course and take part in the Novice Walk. Be ready to go over to the Drivers Meeting for any last minute instructions and then find out.

Check the Grid sheets on the truck to see your grid spot and work assignment. Go to where supposed to be, get your car to grid, or check in with the Chief of Workers.

Ask for an instructor your first few runs to get quicker and quicker.

Secrets to a great day w/ NYR:

  1. FastLane CheckIn. Register and Pay online and go to Tech in the morning. Get a $5 discount. No waiting in line for registration.
  2. Bring lots of water and sunscreen. Unless Mother Nature provides. Then bring what you need to stand out in the rain. We drive Rain/Shine/Snow!
  3. It’s OK to be new. In fact tell us it’s your first day so we can point you in the right direction for whatever you need.
  4. It’s the weekend, you’re here to have fun, we’re here to have fun.
  5. It’s not car, it’s the DRIVER. Let us show you HOW.
