(Sacramento) Davis Auto-X: Saturday, May 14, 2011

Post by volvie! on Tue May 03, 2011 12:02 am

Hi Everyone,

I've been busy updating the event flyers at the Sac Volvo Club website and here is the latest:
http://www.sacvolvoclub.org/Home/events/event-flyer

Hello everyone!

You are invited to join the Sacramento and Golden Gate VCOA Chapters for the 2nd annual Autocross on May 14th at 7:30A.

Notes:
-Helmets are required. PLEASE BRING A SNELL95 OR NEWER HELMET FOR EACH DRIVER AND PASSENGER. If you have any spare
helmets, please bring them with you on the day of the event!
-PLEASE BE SURE TO HAVE YOUR VOLVO IN PROPER WORKING ORDER, THERE WILL BE MANDATORY TECH INSPECTIONS BEFORE DRIVING THE AUTO-X COURSE.
-Tech will follow basic SCCA guidelines such as secured battery, no hubcaps, nothing loose in the interior or trunk (cameras, tools, etc.) , car in general good working condition, etc.
-Track layout will be more technical than speed due to lot size (90,000 sq.ft.).
-We need numerous volunteers to make this work.
Cone retrieval experts especially needed.
-The event is based on giving all proceeds to charity.

Meeting location:
Different location than 2010:
Corner of Macready Ave. and Mather Blvd.
At Mather AFB (38.563819, -121.308452)
Mather, CA 95655

Meeting Time:

Will end when runs complete.

Cost:
Pre-registration:
$20 per driver (1 car), $7 per passenger.

Day-of-Event:
$25 per driver (1 car), $10 per passenger.

Prices DO NOT include lunch.
We are not allowed to sell food products at the event, so bring something to eat and drink!

After the drivers are all finished, we plan on selling laps for any type of vehicle to run the course ($5 per lap).

Pre-register on-line:
GGVCOA Event Registration

A Note from Mark Baldwin about the (Sacramento) Davis Autocross
I will be the event marshall and run the drivers meeting. I have a deputy working the gate to check that participants have paid and signed waiver prior to entering the track area. I have three independent tech inspectors already volunteering (Peter, Jacob, and Nick from Volvo Independent).

Will need volunteers at sign in table to collect money, have waivers signed, and stamp hands, etc. Will need timers also.

I am splitting the drivers into two groups. The first group will be driving while the second group works the track (flaggers, and cone pick-up). This will switch when the first group finishes their runs.

If you have questions or are interested in volunteering, please e-mail Mark Baldwin.

We hope to see you there.

From looking around the forums, there is also the possibility of:
-A get-together at a "local's" shop after the Auto-X:

-A dyno session at SVS:

If you have any questions, please let us know!

Take care,
