Join Torq at the SCCA Auto-X Aug 14th!!!

As many of you might know, I am a frequent visitor to auto-x and track events pretty much all over the country. And one thing I always like to do is bring along customers who have never been to track before to get to learn how to really drive their Camaros and to see what they are capable of! Auto-X is a cheap and extremely fun way to do this. Last event we had 4 5th Gens on site and they had an absolute blast!


"Camp TORQ" at the last SCCA event at PBIR



Xavier with his Torq-750 and my Project Cammedmaro lined up!





Anywho, the next event down here in South Florida is August 14th at the Bank Atlantic Center in Sunrise, and since we will be there with my car as well as with a few customer cars I wanted to extend the invitation to other C5 member looking to have a some fun, regardless of driving experience. Let's show all these Subarus and Mustang guys what these Camaros can do

My technician John (also and avid Autocrosser) and myself will be available for instructing, and if you have any questions about a proper set-up for you Camaro this would be a perfect time to discuss it. Ride alongs (limited space) will also be available in my own "Race Spec" Camaro for those interested!

Here is a link to the registration site, spaces are limited so sign up fast if you want to come! You won't regret it

http://www.dlbracing.com/drivers/log...%26LMID%3d3203

Create an Account, then just sign up for the Aug 14th event! This will be one of the most fun and educative ways to spend $40. The fun part about Auto-X is that you race rain or shine, and really the worst thing that could happen is running over a cone or two, and yes we have ALL done that






Here is a link to an awesome video that really explains the whole Auto-X scene for those whom have never been

http://vimeo.com/12067348


And here is a short video of the same event at the same location a few months ago. The Bank Atlantic "track" is actually really fun!




We hope to see lots of C5 guys AND girls out there, this is fun for the whole family! If you have any questions please just send me an email, PM or simply call me at the shop. We will be meeting up at TORQ HQ before hand and cruising up together, so if anyone need help finding the place let me know. Spots are limited so if you are interested sign up fast!

/Erik

OK, maybe I'm just tired but, I don't see a way to sign up for an event as a driver. It seems my first attempt has me joined as a worker. Is the link you made correct?

With your mods I would say ESP, it can always be changed should it be the wrong one! We should be quite a few Camaros this time around, I love it!

I was hoping there was a division for the V6. Looks like I have to compete against V8s... arggg! Might not be a totally bad thing depending on the course setup but...
