And with that, another weekend of autox done! Check the 2017 Results Page to see the results of rounds 5+6. In two weeks, we have Round 7; so get ready!
Been a while since our last post. The Pro and Tour have finished! The Pro is its own separate entity, so it doesn’t count for any local points; it just affects you if you want to run at Pro Finale in Lincoln. The Championship Tour DOES count for local points though as it is our Round 4.
Everyone who competed gets points, not just locals. However, there are women who normally run open that ran ladies class in tour. Those women will get moved into open and points adjusted for where they would’ve placed. People who normally run Index class got removed from their class in tour, grouped together, and then indexed against each other for points.
Now we finally get a little break. Our next weekend is a joint event with AAS June 10/11. Should be another great joint operation.
Lastly, season points have been updated to reflect round 4. Check the 2017 Results Page to see where you’re standing.
The morning rungroups have been combined. Please check the Latest Event Rungroups Page to see where you fall.
Round 2 is almost here! Closely on its tails are the TnT March 18 and Round 3 March 19th. The TnT has a cap of 60 people, so make sure to register asap.
Round 2 is almost here! Be sure to prereg for the event to avoid the on-site fee. Check the Latest Event Rungroups page for the prereg link.
Also, Dan Pellow will be holding a Training Seminar at the next event. If you wish to become a Safety Steward or renew your SS license, be sure to check this BAA post.
It’s almost time for the first event of the 2017 season! Official rungroups and Prereg link are now up on the Latest Event Rungroups page.
If you can join the setup crew, please post on the Facebook page or the Bay Area Autox page.
With a new year comes new rules from the powers-that-be.
First, Snell 2005 is now the oldest level of helmet allowed. So all those old 2000s are no longer valid. You can see a full list of supported safety stickers at the bottom of this page. If you need a new helmet, I highly recommend Competition Safety Gear in Campbell.
Second, there are some new enforcements for Minor Waivers. Make sure to check out this page and fill out the form at the bottom for SCCA.
While we’re waiting on a completion date for our new site in Stockton, here is what we have planned for the first 4 months of 2017:
- Round 1, Boondoggle: Marina Airport, February 19th
- Round 2: Marina Airport, March 12th
- SCCA Starting Line School/Test and Tune, Crows Landing: March 18th
- Round 3: Crows Landing, March 19th
- Pro Solo, Crows Landing: April 22-23
- National Tour, Crows Landing: April 29-30
