I'll be passing through Atlanta this weekend, and I see there's an autocross. Will any of our friends be there?

Atlanta region runs a killer autocross. I went to the season opener when visiting my Dad, and I loved it so much I am moving down there...

I'm very tempted. Haven't attended since Points 2 (not that I'm fast enough to worry about attending every event.. ). We had some registration issues here (not the fault of the club, DLB decided to go pure psycho on us). Finally got the black C settled, might be time to bring her out!

DILY, I think I saw you guys at Pts.1, but didn't realize who you were then.

Green lot this weekend, right?

No need to register to view the schedule or competitor list.

We're a victim of our own success here..no time only or fun runs. But hey...as slow as I am, they're all fun runs.

Come play. Beats leaving the car in the driveway, eh?

This is going to be AWESOME!

The exact same day of this event, a drift event (held by SouthEastDrift) will be in the Blue Lot just above you guys/gals!

This may get me out of the bed early on Saturday! LOL!

Just hadn't been around Atl Solo long enough, I guess. Funny thing, I hadn't noticed Dave here until I recognized the car in his avatar!

Tell the drifters to look out for the bricks...the Blue Lot's set up as a memorial to Hank's 715th, and the old diamond from Fulton Co. Stadium is laid out there.

I will try to be there (if I get over this damn cold). Dont thing I will run tho. The Spit isnt up to it (yet) and I dont think they will let me run a Ranger on truck tires so I will observe, make notes, plan my domination for next year, and help any way I can.

I went to the first one at Sx Flags that was snowed out but havent been able to sinse.

I'll see if I can make it. Probably if the Civic doesn't break yet another something important. (Had to replace the distributor last week since it was dying and wouldn't start for a couple minutes.)

Aw, maaaaaan! Discovered today that I've been shafted by the duty rotation at work. Gonna have to skip it. Y'all have fun! And wear your GRM shirts & stickers so David knows who you are..

Hey, at least I still have a job. These days, I guess I ought to take better care of it.

Aside to Perry: I wouldn't call a top five exactly slow...

I arrived in Atlanta today and will try to stop by Turner Field on my way back home. How late do the local autocrosses run?

Dave, I guess I missed you. I got there as things were winding down. Still saw lots of friendly faces. I'll be back.

I really do want to run an Atlanta Region event--after all, it's where I got my start. Glad to see that the region still has a healthy Solo program. I saw lots of GRM stickers and T-shirts, and that always makes me smile.

Lots of love for you guys in ARSCCA.

I've got a guest bedroom and an open seat in a turbo Civic. Name the date...
