Geoff Craig discussed the final two series Autocrosses on October 27th and 28th.
Alan Pozner discussed the Road Tire Classes. RT is for Stock class vehicles, but we’ve found people from other categories entering those classes. Alan suggested that Kate Ritter and/or Chris Paveglio discuss appropriate classing for Road Tire entries be discussed at each event’s drivers meeting.
John Roscinski discussed the upcoming Rallycross at Susquehanna Speedway. We have a number of Rallycross Safety Stewards involved with the upcoming event. This event will have two individuals who have been the major organizers in DC Region’s Rallycross series. The Rallycross gates will open at 7 a.m., and start at 9:30. All competitors will receive at least one pace lap.
Alan Lesher said for the Rallycross, normal Autocross rules are applicable for helmet, seat belt, and stock seat.
Chris Paveglio opened a discussion on the Club Truck. Alan Lesher read Henry’s report on the truck, and repairs, not replacement are the preferred option. It’ has some suspension, safety and cosmetic issues to correct after the season is over. Chassis work will be done by Stanley Springs, a glass shop for the damaged windows, Alan said he thinks he knows a place that can repair the seats.
Other issues with the truck are signage, Alan Lesher will check out graphics to supplement the ASCC logo. He will get the costs.
