I’ve learned if you hit the New Topic tab, even if you’re in a subforum, the new topic is created in the top level Driving Events forum. I myself have done this a few times. I’ve asked the admins if they can change that page functionality to default to the forum you’re reading at the time, but in the future just double check the category drop-down to make sure it says “autocross” instead of “driving events.”

Thanks Brad for starting this thread. It was a big day for us with so many new people and such a large crowd, but the experience and willingness of everyone to pitch in and help where needed ensured we had a smooth day. Course tear-down and packing up at the end of the day went very quickly. Everyone did an outstanding job at this event!

The team worked really hard on pre-event planning and course design and setup for this one due to the variable nature of the site and I think the course was very fun, safe, and mostly friendly to race suspended cars – all things considered. I filed off some more of my front air dam on the “bowl” around worker station 5, but hey, more front ground clearance is a good thing.

I feel like I know every inch of The Stick after spending three days with the Club there. The staff at SF Parks & Rec were very accommodating of our needs all weekend and really treated us well.

To those of you who found driving the course a challenging experience… practice, practice, practice! Watch our club calendar and e-blasts for an announcement about the October Car Control Clinic registration open date. It is there that you will learn valuable skills to help you be better drivers on the street, but also explore concepts that greatly enhance your autocross experience. Several of us also instruct for that program so if you tell us you want to improve your autocross driving, we’ll tailor our teaching to help you with that. These clinics fill up fast… the last one sold out in 5 days, so register early.

Thanks again to all of you who joined us this weekend! We are very hopeful that some of the new folks will join us at Marina for future events. If you’ve never been, you must make the trek down to experience our home site.
