    It’s on! Registration opens at 7pm tonight

    Join us for a Pre-Season Test & Tune/Open test and practice day at Marina. This is an open format event that will run from 8am until 5pm. No run groups or car classes will be assigned, just plenty of opportunity for tuning, practice, and of course fun driving!

    We will offer two exercises:

    1) Figure 8/Skidpad/Oval (multi-purpose exercise)
    2) Mini autocross course (approximately 40s)

    The Figure-8 is an excellent exercise to explore over and understeer, skid recovery, throttle and steering smoothness, trail braking, vision, and braking smoothness. It is not for practicing drifting or burn outs.

    The mini-course will include various elements you can expect to see during a competition event. The timing equipment will be set up with the display at the finish so you can run the course and see if your tuning and driver tweaks are making you faster.

    Event cost is $50 and $5 for an optional sandwich lunch.

    Is it possible to use a suction cup mount with your car?

    We are using the same course layout from last July, here’s a repost of the site plan. If you want course maps, please print your own and bring with you.

    There were two items found at the site that I forgot to mention in the thank you e-mail I sent. One is a black plastic storage case for an electric air pump.

    The other is a plastic part from the front lower area of a BMW…


    #5 in the diagram was found on the figure-8 exercise. I have it stored in the trailer, so if it’s yours and you want it back, get in touch.

    Based on the part number it belongs to one of the following vehicles:

    Part 17111436245 (SEALING LOWER) was found on the following vehicles:
