  8. Michael Terrey (SS open) was running hoosiers needs to be moved to SSR
  9. Thanks Kim, I was just logging in to report this now!
  10. Thanks to everyone who came out, and a special thanks to all the out of town folks who helped make this a success. Distance record goes to Jeff and Denise Cashmore, from Wisconsin! Results are now available for both days. Congrats to Tony Rivera for being the Most Awesome driver!
  11. Hey everyone, I want to apologize for leaving the event today abruptly. I was running out of fuel and went to get some only to find I was leaking. So I had to rush home. I hope this didn't cause any issues, and I'm sorry I had to miss my work schedules.
  12. Hi! I’m Aaron, one of the new guys to the group. I ran a C Street Miata in Group B (B16) and got a 52.259 on my fifth run. It looks like my times were recorded successfully on the paper timing sheet that was posted earlier; however, I didn’t make it onto the preliminary “Live Timing” list. Thank you for your help! 🙂 -Aaron Skolnik
  13. C25 Jeff Gehrings STX times were listed in error under C24 (cruz - who was not at event) Jeffs best time should be 50.992
  14. There's a new facility going up West of Casa Grande. Atessa is supposed to be a darn near utopian facility for auto enthusiasts. Might be an option for the long haul since they are zoned for auto competition according to their internet propaganda.
  15. I ran my Subaru BRZ, not Glenda's Veloster N. (I'm not allowed access 😂 ). Josh was supposed to change that. Somehow MSR apparently chooses cars randomly from your Garage, since I did not choose the Veloster. I thought it would carry over my last active choice, the BRZ, but MSR did not. Be aware. Also, Lee Reforma should be in DS Open, and not Novice. He had graduated by winning Novice last Series. Guessing the same thing must have happened to him, the system just chose for him.
  16. I am going to have to second Nick on this one. People can also change a lot in 16 years. A quick Google search shows that Phoenix Raceway is still under the same ownership since 1997, if anyone's interested. Anyways, it never hurts to ask and explore the potential options. I also did some research into the new Gilbert Public Training Facility off of Power Rd and Pecos Rd, and the skid pad is small. Like 500x350 feet where AMP is 800x800. So area wise the Gilbert facility is 27% the area for the skid pad. Yes there are small tight roads as well , but a lot of them have signs right off of the road. Probably won't work out very well. In all honesty, the old Fiesta Mall site might be a better option to explore. The mall is effectively closed and may re-develop at a later date, but nothing is announced yet and the site lost the Amazon bid. Plus, there is a 2 story car park on the West side. SSS's would probably never approve a 2 story autocross, but that would be fun. Just think of it @Kim, nations only 2-story autocross region! https://www.google.com/maps/@33.3889417,-111.8606493,1065m/data=!3m1!1e3!5m1!1e4 Dimension Financial & Realty Investments currently owns the site that was Fiesta Mall. Mesa Marketplace Swap meet might be another idea. https://www.google.com/maps/@33.3822296,-111.6034768,725m/data=!3m1!1e3!5m1!1e4 This may sound odd, but the BNFS auto distribution center may be a possibility. It's not like they are super busy yet. https://www.google.com/maps/@33.6161507,-112.319272,367m/data=!3m1!1e3!5m1!1e4 Tempe Diablo Stadium https://www.google.com/maps/@33.401065,-111.9688868,291m/data=!3m1!1e3!5m1!1e4 Okay, last idea that I had written down.

  17. Draft results for the event are available via the Live Timing link on the home page. Please note for the most part we only have everyone's fastest time loaded but feel free to reply here with any timing correction requests. We are still working to get the results loaded to the normal results link on the web page but it may be Sunday or even Monday before that is resolved. Thanks, Kevin
  18. Update on results. We are working on getting them up today but it may sometime this weekend. Once results are up please bear in mind they are draft results and based on the paper timing sheets so they may require more clean up then usual. Apologies for the delay and issues, our electronic timing and scoring system crashed and on top of that our Chief of Timing and scoring is out of town with limited phone and email access.
  19. A lot has changed in 16 years.
  20. The club got kicked out of there at the end of 2005. Probably not welcome back.
  21. Hi Todd, spectators are allowed. No weekend membership is required. All we ask is that you avoid crowded areas like grid, the timing table, the equipment truck, etc. due to covid concerns.
  22. Has anyone contacted Phoenix Raceway? They have three lots separated by roads (not sure if they are publicly accessible) that equates to a much larger lot than AMP. The lots are called Cactus 2, Suite Parking, and Arizona 3. https://www.google.com/maps/place/33°22'18.6"N+112°19'00.5"W/@33.3718103,-112.3183619,915m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m5!3m4!1s0x0:0x0!8m2!3d33.3718282!4d-112.3167955 Thanks, Nick
  23. Hmm, I reckon "If ever" might just be a matter of time since Dan never made it a secret that AMP was not originally intended to be a "forever" thing. Then again, only Dan himself knows what he will do and when. Last weekend arriving from the West, I sorta wondered what's going in on the giant plot on the West side of AMP with all the earth moving equipment. Google maps doesn't update often enough to show it yet. I really can't imagine a nicer autocross site than AMP. Well, maybe ultra grippy weathered WW2 concrete without frost heaves would do it==but not much of that available anywhere anymore. To your question: Same day events might be multiple SCCA regions, NASA, or marque clubs. Its amazing to me if all there is to Marque clubs in the Phoenix area is just PCA. At Marina airport in CA, we used to have BMW, Corvette, Golden Gate Lotus, SCCA, American Autocross Series, PCA ,Lockheed Mart ,and one other club whose name I don't remember ALL running separate events. It was being used almost every single weekend of the year.- sometimes, one club on Sat and and the other on Sunday. It was nice and smooth, didn't generate much of its own dust, but wasn't fabulous grip concrete. Grip was no better than AMP- possibly not even as good. Owned by the City of Marina and they decided to sell it off for homesites or something. Anyway, if one wants to cruise around on Google maps, there are probably more and more large lots with no parking stops or light poles at abandoned factory or warehouse sites around Phoenix. I'd start on the West side just off the big I-10 truck route curve
  24. We need to be pro-active seeking other sites in case Dan Maloney ever decides owning AMP is not all that much fun, and decides to sell the property to the business community. I’ll bet he’s had offers. What do you mean by “same day events in greater Phoenix Area”? PCA is the only other area autocross club here, and even Kim K can’t be in two places at the same time.😉
  25. I looked at the training site back when we first learned of it (perhaps even more than 10 years ago) and even watched some of the training . It has pros and cons- Pros: 1) pavement looked like it's above parking lot quality (better integrity, less black dust) 2)- there is quite a large parking lot outside of the training pavement fence, possibly still? plenty for both grid an non-grid general parking plus trailers, motorhomes. Cons: 1. Exactly what Ken said above. If they have a lot of their own cones set up-- that's a labor problem for somebody (probably us) - unless we get innovative about leaving them all in place and designing them into our courses. Are we actually serious about new sites? Is this going to be a necessity with the new Region, where at times, there may be same day events in the greater Phoenix area?
  26. Earlier
  27. In my past experience, Police Training Facilities have been ideal and a lot of work to teardown in order to setup the autocross course and set backup after the event. I'm sure the cops won't entertain the idea of tearing down on Friday and setting back up on Monday morning for the benefit of autocrossers. Also, most police training facilities have some training course elements in the way such as skid pans and/or traffic lane control signal devices. After you factor in the paddock for not just for cars but, for truck and trailers and grid areas you won't have significant space for a decent course
  28. Are spectators permitted at the October 23,24th Marana auto cross? If so does one need a weekend or full scca membership? Are there time r place restrictions for spectators. I watched an auto cross at the Marana Airport a few years ago and it was most enjoyable. Thank you, Todd
