CANCELLED BECAUSE WE THINK IT’S GOING TO RAIN
(The Event has been cancelled by the Organizers)
SATURDAY, February 16
We (the drivers) will be meeting at Douglas Burgers,
18461 Dexter Ave, Lake Elsinore (74 & 15 – Costco Exit),
and depart promptly for the track at 0640 am
(what can I say, we’re eager beavers).
Its about 40 minutes to Fontana.
Spectators (hey, we need a cheering section) can show
up any time they please since the show (driving) starts at 0900.
NOTE: There is a $10 gate fee for all drivers,
spectators, friends, cheering sections and family
(look below for what you should bring).
Once you’ve paid the entrance fee,
come back out and keep an eye
out for the pop -up with
Steve & Rob.

You are only competing with yourself. Don’t worry about being the low
time of the day. Some 16 year old in a clapped out GTI with mismatched
fenders will remind you why you will want to keep your day job.
PRICE: $99 ($10 at the Gate)
(This entitles you to TWO days of Autocross, but one day is
plenty for us.)
NOTE: There is a $10 gate fee for all drivers, spectators, friends, and family.
DRIVERS SHOULD BRING:
(they have loaners-but who wants to put on someone else’s sweaty helmet)
Tire Guage and Compressor to fill your Tires
A note pad and pen to record your times
Chair (to rest your weary bones between sessions)
Something to Drink (you will be thirsty)
Your Lone Ranger Lunch Box & a couple of Sandwiches & maybe some chips
(or purchase at track)
SPECTATORS SHOULD BRING
Chair (who wants to sit on the ground anyway)
Something to Drink (it can get hot out there)
Your Hello Kitty Lunch Box & a couple of Sandwiches & maybe some chips
(or purchase at track)
(Steve & Rob will bring shades.)

First Select Your “Lap Time”. Since none of us have been on the Big Lot Course before, I’d go with 4-5 min. Seems like a long time for an Autocross, but who knows how long the course will be.
When you register, select SATURDAY, select the $99 option, tell them about your car, select a car number (don’t worry you won’t really need one which will be explained later) and select “I don’t want timing” (that’s what the pad and pen are for) and tell them if you wish to rent a helmet (bring your own if you can – who wants to wear someone else’s smelly helmet)
- Drivers under 18 must have a parent present and/or submit a signed waiver at registration. No passengers under 18 years of age are allowed. See their FAQ page for full details.
- You must have a Snell rated helmet (either Auto or Motorcycle) rated 2010 or newer. The preferred helmet is an SA rated helmet. If you do not have a helmet and cannot obtain or borrow one, please go back to step 6 to rent one from us. Don’t forget the Carte Blanche option which allows you to run in all the groups so you only have to take a break when you want to.
The regular option ($99) means this: the organizers will divide the drivers into two or more groups. If more drivers arrive during the day, other groups may be added. Lets say there are two run groups, A and B. A group lines up to run and the group runs one car after another for a half hour or so. Then B group lines up to run and the group runs one car after another for a half hour or so. This continues until lunch. After lunch the groups start where they left off until the day ends. the Carte Blanche ($169) option allows you to run in group A and then in group B and then in group A, and so on, until you drop from exhaustion. Personally, I’d go for the regular option.
