The local SCCA chapter is putting on a Autocross Novice school on August 3rd then Autocross event 5 on Sunday 4th.
Both take place at the Millington JetPort.

Having a novice school sounds like a great idea!
Our region in SC is sponsoring a teenage driver program next month, not autocross but just basic safe driver stuff.

Good luck Sunday.

I have my new tires on, suspension height reset and my uprated rear transmission mount in place.
I just need to get at least 500 miles on the tires between now and the Autocross on Sunday!

Time for a visit to the Dragon perhaps? :D

Thanks for the photos, was there a pro there shooting them?

On just a few shots of course there is some body lean, but really not much! I forget if you have upgraded the sway bars or not, but compared to some cars I've seen at autocross I think the Abarth does well. For such a short wheelbase and small size it should!

I like the scorpion on your helmet too, where did you get that?

The wife of one of the guys that competes takes the pictures. She has just taken up photography, has basic equipment and does a fantastic job I think.
Of course, the Abarth is an excellent subject :smile:
I have the original version of the RRM big red rear bar and BC Racing coilovers from Eurcompulsion.
The scorpions I get from Boris on this forum. He does excellent vinyl work.
