Welcome to the Detroit Region Sports Car Club of America!
This the 5th regional event and will be held at the Wurtsmith AFB in Oscoda, MI
Wurtsmith Air Force Base
N Swise Rd, Oscoda-Wurtsmith Airport
Oscoda Charter Township, MI 48750
Solo events are driving skill contests that emphasize the driver's ability and the car's handling characteristics. This is accomplished by driving a course that is designated by traffic cones on a low hazard location, such as a parking lot or inactive airstrip. While speeds are no greater than those normally encountered in legal high-way driving, the combination of concentration and car feedback creates an adrenaline pumping experience.
Oscoda is a great little welcoming town with one heck of a concrete pad to race on. Please do yourself a favor and do not ignore this event thinking it is just "too far", the drive is beautiful and most importantly "worth it".
There will be a test and tune Thursday and Friday for those looking to spend some time dialing in their set ups.
Saturday’s event will be two events, one in the morning and the second in the afternoon. Saturday night is a pot luck dinner with the Region supplying the beverages and some snacks. Bring a dish to pass or stop by the local grocery store and grab something.
Sunday will be a standard solo first thing in the morning with a Solo Trial in the afternoon. The Trial is limited to 50 people. For those who do not know, a Solo Trial is basically a 90 MPH Solo. Will try to get 4-5 runs on the Trials course and still get on the road a reasonable hour.
Saturday and Sunday Solo part of Great Lakes Divisional Series (http://www.soloseries.org/). Saturday is one event and Sunday morning a second for the Series.
