NEC5 All show and no go?????

So after having an awesome time at the RICOA and reviewing the pics and threads in our corner of C5 i noticed that there are a lot of car show threads and little to no track day drag strip or auto x day threads. Now m not saying these events/meets arent cool its always cool to put faces with forum names

BUT............................................... .................................................. .

When are we gonna hit the track???????? I mean all have the mod bug some more than others. I would assume after we all get that new performance mod installed we want to test our car out. I kidna asked around at the RICOA and it seemed like mst were down but didnt have any info.

So heres what i did i search the interwebs and found as many events as i could. Below are the results with links to more info for the events. I assume there are more but this is a start. So how about it can NEC5 show up to a track day auto x or drag day.

We all know that ZL1 owners are slow drivers and their cars stand no chance against a 1le on the track. Inferior SS models and v6 owners can come as we'll need large group of spectators as witnesses lol PPS That is an official track day call out from a 1le owner.










Whos gonna accept the challange?

i think more would go if they weren't always during the weeknights most of us work til 5 some of us til 9 or later at night. I'd love to go to some just don't have the time and money to travel that far from the middle of NH to go to an event i might get 1 or 2 passes on.

Any type of drag event would need to be a rental. Test and tune days/nights turn into hurry up and wait.

Camaro fest will have as much of both as you could want. Especially the drag racing.

As fun as NHMS is i've managed to get in for free back about 6 yrs ago when i did overnights at the shell station by the south exit it's way overpriced now. NE Dragway is great but again alot of us work weeknights.

We use to do this alot,

I no longer auto X cause my whole front end is fiberglass and if i clip a cone it could be disasterous!!

And With my current setup, HP wise, im fine on the street but risking blowing up something on the track, not setup for it yet!

But i would be down to watch!

Your engine would be fine during the auto X. You never get past 70mph or so on the coned courses. You could leave it in second gear and cruise around. The body however, yeah, I would be very worried about messing that up!!!

I am definitely up for autocross at Devins again this year. I always want to do it more than once a year, but family stuff always takes front seat. We have done it either August of September. I encourage someone to take the lead on organizing the SCCA event.
