Just added to the DC Fiats calendar!

Have you ever been curious to learn how well your classic or new Fiat can handle turns without the risk of flying off the road, hitting a tree or ending up in jail? Then consider joining us for an autocross!

DC Fiats, one of the most active regional Fiat clubs in the country, has been invited to participate in the August 10 Capital Driving Club Autocross in Winchester, VA.

If you've never autocrossed, this would be a great first event with several of your fellow club members on hand to help you learn the ropes. The autocross is open to both classic and new Fiats - pretty much anything deemed safe for the road. Open cars (Spiders) do not require roll bars. Note that standard 500s (non-Abarths) may not participate if equipped with r-compound tires (if you're on stock 500 tires, you'll be fine.) Helmets are required (some loaners will be available) and drivers will be expected to help with course work at some point. DC Fiats members can register for the autocross at a discounted price.

If you haven't been to a DC Fiats event yet, this is an excellent opportunity to connect with fellow Fiat owners (both new and vintage) in the Washington, DC metropolitan area. More details than you'd care to know about this event along with registration instructions (you'll want to pre-register to ensure a spot) may be found on the DC Fiats website: www.dcfiats.org/events (http://www.dcfiats.org/events).

I had a blast. Thinking since my tires didn't look that bad that maybe I should have pushed the car harder or it's a sign that we need to do this again :D
