Grip at Grissom, SBR Points 4 & 5

Grissom Aeroplex

About this event

South Bend Region, SCCA

Join us at Grissom Aeroplex, one of the best known autocross sites in the midwest.


Come out and join South Bend Region as we host a two-event Challenge. The Saturday event is a South Bend Regional autocross day, and a great day to get a little practice in for the second day. The second day is a Great Lakes Divisional Solo. Both of these events will count toward the South Bend Region series. It will be scored as two one day events, with trophies awarded each day. They will also count as two separate events for SBR annual points. Trophies will be awarded for all SCCA classes. (2021 PAX/RTP factors will be used for the SBR Tire Rack and Novice Annual Championships.)

 

You may enter for the entire two-day weekend, or just Saturday or Sunday.

Everyone is welcome!

If you're not an SCCA member, you can purchase a weekend membership with your registration.

NO WALK-UP REGISTRATIONS!
