FL Autocross Driving School interest?

I am in the process of contacting an AX driving school and setting up an event here in Florida. Not sure on the location yet, most likely central Florida area like Orlando.

Anyway I am feeling out o see if there is any interest from RX8 guys to join in on this.

It will be good for 1st timers and veterans to improve.

Just post up here so I know.

Thanks!

jim

CFR SCCA do Autocross at the OCCC (Orange County Convention Center) Orlando that might be a good venue for you. You can get a nice 35-45 second track there.

If I get more interest in So. Fla then I will see about a venue down that way, as mentioned this is in its infancy. Onc eI have an idea where the interest is I will see what venues are available.

I understand the SCCA uses Homesteads parking lot (part of the karting track) correct?

I think so, I'm not too sure though. It'd be pretty awesome, do you have any idea more less when you'd want to do the event?

I would be interested in an autocross event.

I'm also putting together a track day on November 4th if anyone is interested.

I'm in Tampa so either one wouldn't matter for me.

But as far as getting more people to attend, Orlando would probably be better cause it's more Central. People from Jacksonville, Tampa, South Florida could all attend.

Oh didn't realize you were talking about this event...

I can't make that one, I have plans that day.
Also my car probably won't be fully tuned at that point so it doesn't matter.
Un-tuned Turbo Rotary = No Track
