Sorry to report, but the the next autocross event planned for feb 24th in Marina, California has been cancelled. I'll let everyone know when the next event will happen. There was a lawsuit filed by a BMW club member who was injured at an event, so there is going to be an extra waver for everyone to sign as we get to the front gate. There hopefully will be an event next month, but I'll keep everyone informed for upcoming events.

IT'S ON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The site has been approved and the first event of the 2014 season is next Sunday, February 23.

I'm so happy...:dance:

Great to hear! I wish I could attend, but I have to drive my wife to a photo shoot that day. Kick some ass for me Ron!
It was a fun day and I think that was probably the best balanced track of the season, as far as heavy and light cars go anyways.
Dennis saved the best for last...
I had a blast this year! I sure as hell didn't set the world on fire out there but I was able to hone my skills and improve my car enough to be, reasonably, competitive by the end of the year...with comparable cars and drivers anyways.
I highly recommend everyone giving it a try. It allows you to learn the limits of your car without risking any damage on the streets and will make you a safer driver. Sure, you're going to get beat by old ladies in a Lotus every once in a while but suck it up. You have to do it to be good at it.
I have to thank Bullitt1075 for getting me interested in autocrossing in the first place. He's an excellent driver and was one of the reasons that I tried so hard.
I'm not thrilled about how the ESP class has been run by the club but that's something that we'll have to work out next year... If there is a next year.

I guess we'll find out early next year. :)

That's awesome Ron! I'm so happy for you! We're any if the usual suspects in ESP there?
Event #3 is tomorrow, Sunday March 30. :)

I wish I could go, but my wife gave birth to our daughter 4 days ago on the 25th. But I hope to go to the next event. Child Baby Product Sleep Baby sleeping

Thank you! I feel so blessed to have two healthy daughters!
Wow! That's great Ron! So now it looks like I've got to spend some serious cash on R comp rubber to keep up with you?!?! That's sweet that did so well and broke into the top. 30! Hopefully I will make the next event. Do you think I could get away with running F-Stock? I don't think I'll stand much of a chance with you guys in ESP now.

A6's are AWESOME!!!

I wanted to wait until the results were posted so that I could study the times and get a good idea of the true gain of using R comps. It looks like they shaved exactly 2 seconds off of my time. There's probably some more left though because they completely changed the way that the car drives so I'm going to have to make an adjustment to my driving style.

Incredible! For those who have never driven on R comps, I can't even really describe what a difference that they make. You can, basically, just toss out whatever you thought the limits of the car are on street tires, and relearn the new limits of the car.

It's too bad that the "entry price" of the tires is so high though... I was cringing about spending so much on tires, but after only 4 laps, it made it seem like money well spent. :thumb:

The Camaro that won ESP the last event didn't show up to this event so we thought that it was just the three Mustangs in ESP. Bob and I decided to just drive our own cars because it seemed unnecessary to co-drive. Hell, I wasn't even going to put the R comps on my car and just use street tires so I could compare times with Bobs car which had R comps, but the temptation was too great and I threw them on at the last minute. After looking at the results, it seems that a Camaro and a Boss 302 snuck themselves into ESP but ran in the group before us. Lol. I, of course, saw the Boss 302, and it was a different car than the one that normally shows up. I never noticed the Camaro so I have no idea of specifics on that car. It doesn't matter though, Bob and I would have easily beat them both on street tires...

I had a couple of "personal bests" at this event... For the first time at Marina, I had the overall fastest Mustang and I broke into the top 30 of overall top times of the day coming in at #29 of 99 drivers. :)
It's officially over.
I recieved the news yesterday but wanted to wait until it was posted on the UFO website.
Some insurance issue precludes the people who run the club from conducting autocross events, so that's it... Apparently, the United Five-ten Owners club is going to disband altogether and cease to exist.
We knew it was coming to an end after this season but what a shame that we can't finish out what would have been the last season.
Well, it was fun while it lasted and the United Five-ten Owners never failed to put on anything but an exceptional autocross every time.
I'm really going to miss them...

Such a bummer. It sure was fun while it lasted though.
It sure is!

Im still not over it...:(

I think that the American Autocross still has an event or two left to run at Marina though.

We should try to make it to some of the remaining events.

Please let me know if there is an upcoming American autocross in Marina, I would love to get back out there.
