"Slush Series" Auto-X test event
If this event goes well in the rain, we intend to host a small series of auto-x "slush series" events through the winter and spring seasons
Join us on Saturday November 6th, 2021 for an Auto-X event at the Mission Raceway karting track
Gates open at 8:00am with on-track activities from 9:30am - 4:00pm.
This will be a test event to determine the feasibility of a Slush Series at Mission Raceway and plan to proceed rain or shine. The event will be capped at 50 drivers to ensure everyone will have sufficient run time as well as a chance to safely learn the course in the anticipated slippery conditions.
Auto-X is open to both new and experienced drivers looking to join a community, improve their driving, and have a fun day. We simply ask you arrive with an adequate helmet and a desire to learn.
There will be two run groups with a lunch break in the middle.
Registration Cap: 50
