Guys I would like to know if I were to set up an SC/XR7 autocross event who would consider showing up for it. I want to gauge how much interest there even is in such an event before I attempt to set something up. So please let me know your thoughts and opinions.

It would depend on location and the date, but I would be interested. However, I really don't see there being much of a turnout.

Might be tough to get enough cars to make an event out of it.

Shane, are there any Ford or Mustang clubs local to you that stage an autocross event? If so, what about starting by hooking up with them, and running a specific SC class(es).

I love the twisties but AOD sucks for that, but if it was within a few hours Id surely show up to watch/fim and do a burnout in the parking lot:D

My Saturn SC2 with 213K miles on it that is.:rolleyes:
Hey I just threw in a new set of KYB struts too. ;)
The originals had 213K miles on them and the car rode like crap. Should handle good in a small autocross event too. heh.

+1 too. I have done it a few times & matched the mustang/camaro drivers.
57 sec. It will reveal car & driver for sure.

I would like to try it out after I get my SC back on the road.It'd be nice to try out the suspension and brake upgrades I've done on a timed event.

Didn't vote because it depends on condition of car. Last SC I brought out of mothballs is my wife's car. Sold off 3 of my MOPAR's as well. Depends on when your doing it, but of course I am interested if on a Saturday in your area or OK.

Lets add another question to this thread. Who would honestly travel to Columbus, OH for an autocross event? It would not be an SC/XR7 only event but it would be tied into the local SCCA region's event. Typically events are on sundays so if people would want saturday we could have a bbq and maybe hit up a car show or something.

Guys give me your opinions.

Shane, I think that we would have to make it an all weekend event to attract the out-of-towners. I'd love to do an autocross with the gang, but I'm not going to drive 7 hours for a single day event!!

It would have to be a pretty big event (in terms of SC/XR7 participation) before I'd consider traveling that far for autocross. I can run SOLO2 here in St. Louis.

I think the best way to do this is to hook up with those in TCCoA who do it, like up in KS and OK, or with a local SHO club. SHO folks usually corner all the time and seldom go to a drag strip. Good guys too who need to be shown what an SC will do.

Id love to auto cross but i'd rather do it with my mustang! autos suck... even though the sc handles better i feel more comfertable pushing the stang in the corners since i have more control.

I'd like to do a standing mile event. These cars were made for high speed touring.
