Arrow CCSCC, May 13-14, AutoX event at Rantoul

Champaign County Sports Car Club is excited to present an autocross event called "Game of Cones: Cone Keep" that will take place on May 13 & 14 at the Rantoul Retired Air Force Base. We'll be pitting at the north end of the tarmac (opposite end as usual) and using the south-end grid space as part of the course. We're expecting to use about 50 cones and "keep as many cones as possible in the van". With that in mind, there will be lots of space to choose your line..........so choose wisely.

While I will be out of town for this event, I'd urge people to attend. Minimalistic courses are the norm Nationally. It's about giving you choices of line, choices which can make the difference between slow, fast, and faster which is often absent in tighter more cone intensive courses.

Is this allowed in a CCSCC event?!
And all those cones we just ordered will live to see another day

Sorry, Dean-O, it sounds like fun--much more fun than what my wife's family has planned for me that weekend--but, alas, sometimes family outweighs autocross.

No more than 50 cones on a north end setup, while controlling the speeds at a safe level? Does that inlude the finish and pointer cones? I'm willing to bet $20 that that isn't going to happen.
I do hope to make it Saturday.

There is a very slim chance that my car will be back on the road by then... If so, I'm there!
