Autocross Bonus Program Changes:
Last May, the board made changes to the Autocross Bonus Program in hopes of encouraging more people to participate in more work events. Here’s how it goes:
1 worked day will earn 1 at-cost entry to an event (a savings of approximately $17).
2 worked days will unlock the Autocross Bonus Program Achievement! (Giving an extra scored run in each autocross heat for the year).
3 or more worked days will earn both an at-cost entry and participation in the bonus program.
As in previous years, ‘reconnaissance’ and ‘cut’ days do not count as workdays.
Mark your calendars! April’s patch party dates are our only scheduled workdays:
April 10, 17, and 18 (25 Alternate) at Mid-American Air Center: Lawrenceville–Vincennes International Airport
On March 20, we held the first of three preparatory driving events for our 2016 season.
Bob Sonntag lead novices and experienced Ralliers alike through the basics and finer points of rallying.
It was a beautiful day for driving, and a great class. Thanks Bob, and all who attended. I had fun!
