This will be a FAST Classic like no other! Why? Because it includes the second ever FROC competition! What's the FROC? Well, it's modeled loosely (very loosely) on the International Race of Champions, a race series in which top drivers were invited to compete in identically prepared cars to determine who was the best of the best. We'll be doing much the same, inviting the recent Champions of FAST to compete in the same car for big fun and bragging rights!
It will be a FAST Classic first, however. Even if you're not eligible or don't want to participate in the FROC, you can come play at the Classic, as always. FROC drivers will just take some of their runs in the FROC car AFTER they have practiced in their own car. There is an added fee for FROC drivers to cover the car expenses. This is going to be huge fun to participate in, AND to watch. The trash talk will be rampant. The competition will be intense. You don't want to miss it!
Total entry is limited to 50 drivers, as with all Classics. FROC entries are limited to the first 20 Trophy winners from 2016. Others may be invited to round out the 20 if required.
FAST CLASSIC events are smaller and more casual events, which allows drivers to enjoy more runs (usually around 7 or 8) without any pressure. You'll get more seat time because we won't spend time doing a novice-level driver's meeting or a novice walk. Otherwise, it will be the same great FAST experience, including the World Famous FAST Lunch, and we'll be done by 2-3pm! These events are not included for points in the FAST Season Championship.
IMPORTANT: Part of what makes these events work is the fact that we limit them to experienced autocrossers. First timers and those with less than 5 autocross events (with any club) will not be permitted. There will be no instructors, no novice walk, just good old-fashioned autocross with folks who know how to autocross.
ENTRY REQUIREMENT: All entrants must have at least 5 events of prior autocross experience. --OR-- Must have a qualified "buddy". See below.
FROC ENTRY REQUIREMENT: Must be a 2016 Trophy winner or specifically invited.
BUDDY SYSTEM: For Classic events, we will allow less experienced autocrossers, even first-timers, if they have a qualified FAST regular sponsor them. That's right, we're using the "buddy system". As the experienced buddy, you can only sponsor ONE driver, and you are responsible for them throughout the day. You will be paired with them in the same run group (they don't have to drive your car, but they can) so that you can ride with them and they can ride with you. And you may be paired with them on a work assignment. We have no formal novice training at a Classic event, so the responsibility falls to you to do a good course walk with them and show them the ropes. We hope a few people can have some fun with it!
