TSSCC 2018 Trackcross: Event #8

Autobahn Country Club

About this event

No cones, no course work, just driving, Trackcross! We will be using Autobahn South course from Pit out, to just after patience. There will be a mandatory drivers meeting with in depth instructions on track etiquette and driving line. Instructors will be available and ride alongs will be encouraged. Cars will be spaced at approximately 20 second intervals so you will not be wheel to wheel at any point in time. This is a non competition event intended for the track day novice.
