Furrin Group: West Michigan Sportscar Club
2022 autocross season starts!
The autocross season has started!! Two excellent days in Traverse City on May 21&22.
Turtle Creek Stadium has an awesome pair of asphalt areas and we made the most of them! Sunday had the best course of the weekend. We had a loop on each side. Course was fast and long, averaging 60 seconds.
We have confirmed Grand Valley State University for July 2&3. Watch for information in the next week.
We are also have our summer picnic coming in a few months. This is a great time to see our club members and have some food. We have a Johnson Park area reserved and all are welcome (not just members).
We are still pursuing MAIC in Muskegon, but we still need to work out some logistics for using the lot at the mall. And we will be back at US131 in the fall. Our club is also looking for a venue in Kalamazoo and we will be working with SCCA to do timing for their Grattan events. We are also working with West Michigan PCA to do timing at their IROC autocross, but they are in need of a lot this year due to construction at the lot they were using.
We should have a rally (or two) and a color tour, but those are still being worked on.
We have a new incentive for helping us find new venues. In the past, if you found us a new venue, you would get free autocross for the year, and always free autocross at the venue (for as long as we run there). We have added a $100 incentive if we book the new venue (even if it’s only one time). We have already received one tip that we are pursuing.
We will continue to have our monthly meetings at Grandvilla restaurant on the third Tuesday of every month, with a few exceptions. You can participate in all meetings in-person or via virtual Zoom meeting. If you want to see what our club is all about, come to a meeting or an event. We would love to see new and old members, and non-members.
Stay tuned on our Facebook page for new events and meetings. See you at an event!
