Re: Register now for July

Jeff Roberts

There were no first-timers on the waitlist for June’s event. This month we have a few hopefuls, and although the cancellations have been trickling in, I don’t think they’ll make it. I let them know to sign up early for next month when reg opens on Sunday night.

For autocross, I think we are about where we need to be right now. Yes, some folks aren’t getting in, but it’s a relatively small percentage of those signing up. If we start having 20-30 people on the waitlist, then maybe we’ll need to talk about how we can accommodate more folks. One thing I’m not open to doing is cutting runs in half and doubling capacity… that’s not what we’re about.

Back in 2009 when I started autocrossing you had to be registered within the first few days to get in. Events were selling out really fast and had long wait lists. Things quieted down a bit in 2010-2012, and have picked up again in 2013.

On the CCCs… I’ve been instructing since 2008 and have never been to one that didn’t sell out. I bet if we could get the dates at Candlestick, and the staff to work, we could have as many CCCs as we do autocrosses. Hugely popular program… for good reason.

Believe it or not, we’re already working on next season’s schedule. I’ve had some good meetings with some new peeps and hope to add a couple new events to the calendar. Stay tuned!
