I saw that Ryan made a post here a few years ago about their 2018 Autocross event. I have been participating at it these past two years and I am signed up again this year. There are about a dozen thirdgen f-bodys on the list and also a good handful of 4th gens. I know they have a facebook page, an actual webpage, and there is a post on www.thirdgen.org about it too. Curious to see who from this web-forum might be going since I think I have only met one of you guys in person.

This is a fantastic event. No wonder it sells out in a matter of hours. Two days of autocross with lunch and dinner meals provided by UMI. Two years ago they had an open house at their UMI shop and everyone could walk around and see all the machines they use to build the products as well as their project cars and test mules. Covid didn't allow that this year, so instead they put on a kind of outdoor party at the racetrack which included a country singer/concert, activities for kids, food trucks, and I think fireworks too. Great people who run the event and awesome participants.

I usually get my butt kicked, but I know it comes with being a beginner and having a car that us a combination of street, strip, show, and autox platforms.

Who is signed up and what are ya bringing?
- I will have the red 87 Iroc there looking like this with hopefully some much better tires:

I've been there several times. I have a Saturn Sky for this year. I don't have a good photo to share.

And I gotta plug our SCCA region just a town over at Mid State Airport (Philipsburg/State College), that's a great venue for some nice high speed courses too.

I'll be there again for the fourth year in a row, best event I've ever attended. The rest of the Safety 3rd crew will be in tow as well.
