Salina MiDiv Solo Event #2 by R&S and SPSFort Riley Marshall Air Field
About this event
Come enjoy a huge concrete site just off I-70 in eastern Kansas!
This event will be a unique combination of a Divisional and a Regional event. SCCA folks will enter SCCA National classes and compete for Divisional points. Novice soldiers will compete in our STO_ (Street Tire Open 4,6, or 8) category for Regional points. The army has been a gracious host for some of our events for several years, and we really enjoy sharing our sport with the soldiers. Novice soldiers will have a reduced entry fee, which doesn't include the banquet. There will be a novice soldier driving school on site Friday evening.
The event will be held at the Fort Riley Marshall Army Air Field Helipad. From either direction on I-70, take exit 301. Go north, and you will see the entry gates. All adults must show a valid drivers license. If your license is expired or otherwise not valid, you can't drive on Ft. Riley, or compete, for that matter. Immediately after the gate, turn right. Observe the 20 MPH speed limit! Follow the road until you see event signs on the left, at the entry to the site. Take the drive between some large buildings and go to the helipad. Check-in will be beside the drive at the edge of the helipad, and tech just to the left of check-in.
Please keep in mind at all times that we are using an active flight line, and we must leave NO TRASH. The site must be completely clean before we leave.
