Autocross Exhibition Event – Sunday, July 18th
In July, we will be hosting a fun exhibition event at Wintrust Field. This event is a non-points event, but will have a fun competition aspect! Here are the details:
We will be setting up a mirrored course on the lot, and have two run groups. Cars will be split into their autocross class and grouped accordingly. We will have a morning work/run session, break for lunch, and have an afternoon work/run competition session. The event will run in a more relaxed manner than a normal autocross event, as we will be limiting attendance to a MAXIMUM of 40 participants, with a waitlist started after that. The registration fee for the Exhibition event is $60.
In the morning, participants will be able to have several test runs to finalize their car settings. For the afternoon, two participants will start on course at the same time exactly halfway through the course opposite each other. When given the green flag, competitors will have 2 or 3 full course laps to finish the course before their opponent,
•If you hit a cone, it is an automatic DNF and your opponent will win
•If you spin, it is an automatic DNF and your opponent will win
•If your opponent catches up to you and is within 5 seconds of you, you will DNF and your opponent will win
Competition will be based on a “knock out bracket” principle. The winner from each heat will proceed to compete again, until the top four from each run group are identified. Then we will pair off the top 4 until we see who is the cleanest and the fastest driver!
Because of the nature of this event, co-driving will not be allowed. Registration will open on MotorsportReg on June 28th.
We will also need volunteers to help work this event! If you want to help out and see some fun competition, or if you have any questions, please feel free to reach out at firstname.lastname@example.org Hope to see you there!
