Camaro5 FEST III Autocross Sponsored by Pedders USA
A very special thanks to Pete from Pedders USA for coordinating and providing the awards for C5F III AutoX
There are two primary objectives for the Autocross.
You will have more fun running the autocross than anything else you can do in your Camaro... I think I'll stop there. The first segment of this video is a great preview to the course you will be running at INDY.
Here are a few things you may not think are important for an autocross, but...
Hydration -- Lots of WATER
Stock -- That means Stock. No CAI, wheel, tire, engine, brake, suspension, exhaust modifications or tunes.
Modified -- Vehicles with tunes, moderate engine mods, suspension upgrades...
ZL1 -- STOCK ZL1
Super Modified -- You are automatically in this class with built motors, supercharger and or tires with a treadwear rating of 200 or less.
Exhibition -- Any and all vehicles owned by a company or driven by a 'shoe'
1st Place – Stock
2nd Place – Stock
3rd Place – Stock

Equipment and Tech
We have NO SCCA support for the event. To make the event run smoothly we need Camaro5 member help.
We will post more details as they become available. Based on the early registrations for the FEST in general we expect the autocross to be a very busy section of track. Autocross is hands down thee most fun you can have with your clothes on :chevy:

I will play and....work the corners. I wouldn't mind being dedicated, probably as a tech inspector. But I want to do drag some time during the day as well. Would that be possible?
I am interested in running a few laps but I'm not wanting to spend my whole day there as I will only be there one day (Saturday). I wouldn't be opposed to help out some but I'm not going to camp at the autocross as a corner worker all day.
I've worked track days before. They are long and tiring and that's not how I'm looking to spend my only day there.
Should I not bother signing up?
So Cal Camaro5 Race Team #27 will be there, looking forward to it Pete
I'm sure someone is trying to cover all bases but just in case, has anyone hit up a local autocross club? Wondering if they would consider working it and maybe provide some instruction for a slight fee charged to participants for their club? I really wish I'd tried it at C51. I'm probably going to have my wife and kids along so I could work a bit but no way am I getting away with doing it all day.
If you are a driver at the event, you'll be expected to do corner work for each sessions you run. Here is how that will work.
We have three classes running every session: Stock, Modified and Super Modified. While the Stock class is on course, the Modified and Super Modified drivers are either watching or working the corners. When the Modified class runs, stock and super modified are watching or working the corners and so on.
Ok so it's a 2/3 of the day thing... Just like a local event (they run 3 heats... work, run, watch)
Thanks for the info... It really helps!
This year the SCCA declined in December so we have time to make our own plans for operation and staffing. With six dedicated Camaro5 Member / Managers and the driver's working the corners we'll be able to cover the event without over working anyone.
