Due to overwhelming demand, registration for this event has been suspended. You can still register for Autocross Sunday on March 20, 2016.
It is with great pleasure and surprise that we are once again returning to the autocross paradise that today goes by the name of the Orange County Great Park, but is better know to autocrossers as El Toro. Yes, the "Great Housing Tract" is closing in, but a short term reprieve has been granted. For how long, we don't know. What we do know is our days of using the runways at El Toro will be ending soon, we just don't know when.
What we also know is that with lots of sunlight available, we'll be able to accommodate a large number of entrants looking for their final practice runs before the Autocross Sunday #3 and the 2016 Tire Rack El Toro ProSolo on April 08, 2016 to April 10, 2016. Because of the high demand expected for this practice, a priority system will be in place for this event.
What to Expect
As usual, you can expect a world class course specially prepared by the CSCC team. We're looking for one hundred drivers to come out and join in. We expect to get the usual 12 runs each, maybe more, though it's not guaranteed. With daytime highs averaging 82 degrees, the course and weather conditions should be ideal. Expect to see the entry list posted two weeks prior to the event.
Who are we?
Your hosts for the event are the volunteers who make up the California Sports Car Club (CSCC), a not for profit club assembled for the sole purpose of organizing world class autocross events in the Cal Club Region of the Sports Car Club of America (SCCA). Organizers are non-paid volunteers. All participants will be required to perform a normal work assignment as your contribution to the event.
We'll Have Food!
Oh yeah! Come hungry. Rodrigo of OC Catering will bring out the gourmet food truck for breakfast and lunch. Ask for George's Special Burrito. It's grrreat!
Hey.....Don't Forget Your Water!
It can get hot out there. Be sure to keep hydrated. The night before, put 7 or 8 bottles of water in the freezer. Kept in a small cooler, you'll have a supply of cold water all day long.
When you arrive
Come through the main gate on Marine Way. Turn right at the stop sign and follow the road to the end. Turn left when you see the SCCA sign. Be sure to observe the 25 speed limit while inside the facility. Be sure to sign the event waiver at the entrance to our area. Park your car in any open spot and come to registration for check-in. After registering, proceed to the tech area so your car and helmet can be approved. Be sure allow enough time for a course walk. That's it........you're ready to go.
No Overnight Camping
There is no overnight camping allowed on this site. However, personal belongings, including vehicles, may remain overnight. The site is fully fenced and the gates will be closed and locked when we leave for the night. Everything must be removed by the time we leave on Sunday. Neither Cal Club nor the event site will be responsible for damaged, lost or stolen property.
As with any venue, we want to make a good impression on our landlords. With that in mind,please use the receptacles for your trash and do not leave trash anywhere on site. Also, have respect for the neighbors and drive carefully both inside and outside the site.
