Corvairborne!

Public·29 Corvairborne Committee and Volunteers

We have great news!!! Forgeline is our major sponsor for the autocross. They agreed to pay for the track rental. Expect to see their logo banner everywhere. Good job Gary and Shawn!!!

I emailed with Brandon Hipp today of the W.O.R SCCA about our Autox track layout options. They have had many autox's at this facility and can provide us with options. He also said that they will usually do a drive -through the day of the event to see if the course needs to change for safety reasons. He would like Kevin and i to attend their March board meeting to discuss this and discuss the contract so our clubs are clear on who does what.

Shawn,

I spoke with Mike Hall. We now have insurance to cover the autocross. The entire cost for track rental and insurance is $1200. He said we are good with the budget. He didn't mention additional fees.

When discussing with Mike on how to include the Impala club to participate with us in autocross, I suggested they use the drag strip. Mike thinks this is a fantastic idea. Can you check with Brandon if the drag strip would be available for the Impala club? Mike is contacting Don Keefe to see if the Impala club would like this.

This would solve our problem. It would avoid alienating the Impala clubs participation with us, and this would make the autocross more exciting to see with both tracks participating on the same day.

Here is the latest communication from our SCCA contact Brandon;


Hi Shawn,


Kilkare has not formally confirmed their 2024 schedule yet, but they have confirmed Thursday 25 July 2024 for your event. Below is a projection of fees for your planning purposes, we can talk more about details when it gets closer (how much you want to charge in addition, if your club wants to cover the SCCA weekend membership cost for your members, etc).


Shawn,

I can only imagine we will not have the autocross at UD arena. Can you try checking out the Moraine Air Park? I used Google Map to view the air park and it appears there is not enough pavement to hold an autocross but who knows how old that satellite image is.
