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.

Sunday’s Autocross at the TMMI plant was well attended by both club workers and TMMI employees.
From Dave Lehrschall:
Yesterday, seemed to go very well at the Toyota autocross event. We had a very good turnout of SIR members, who spent the day working to insure the TMMI event was safe and lots of fun. Comments were positive and several focused on the professional way our SIR organization went about putting on the event.
Several TMMI drivers indicated a desire to participate from time to time in our SIR autocross events or to think about joining the SIR. They also seemed eager to start planning another TMMI event.
Rain shorted a fun run session after the main event, but many of our members got a chance to run the course several times.
It was fun watching, but I’m getting psyched-up for our autocross event this Sunday. I believe it’s the last autocross points event of the season. I think that I’ve moved ahead of Cone Donkey for 12th position (mainly because the blue cone plow has been parked). I’ve been unsuccessfully chasing Jr. Crowe and Jim Cannon on PAX for several events and always behind by just a bit. I’m trying to copy Jim’s smooth, but fast time and Jr’s delicate use of the throttle for steering control. Maybe this will be the weekend.
Don’t forget, Sunday, October 4, at Lawrenceville’s MAAC.
