Default 2011 SCCA Chicago Region Learning Curve Solo School (April 2nd and 3rd)

As an FYI, registration for SCCA Chicago Region 2011 Learning Curve (auto-x school) is currently open.

Hopefully the weather will be warm by next month and some of you will join for two days of car-related fun and instruction. This is a great way to get into auto-x, but also a really good way to get some seat time early in the year to satisfy you driving fix in a safe manner (nothing to crash into, no-one to give you a ticket).


Here's the official text and info:

"A fun, inexpensive and safe way of testing your driving ability and car performance. Solo events are a form of automotive competition in which one car at a time negotiates a prescribed course in the shortest possible time. The events are open to anyone who has a sports car, compact or small sedan. The only requirements to compete are a valid state driver's license and a car which will pass a safety technical inspection. Drivers compete in numerous car classes for stock street cars, modified street cars, race prepared cars and modified race cars.

The Learning Curve
Chicago Region Solo drivers school is an excellent way to learn about and become involved in Solo events. It is a two-part school that consists of a classroom session and a day and a half of on track instruction. Instruction will be provided by experienced, award winning drivers (many with National Championship credentials). Because the entry is limited to only 100 students, there will be a very favorable student/teacher ratio allowing for maximum driving time and personal instruction. The school is for novice drivers with less than one year or no solo experience. Students must attend both days. "

When:
Saturday April 2nd and Sunday April 3rd
8:00am - 5:00pm both days

Where:
Route 66 Raceway, Joliet, IL

Cost: $130

How: Register on line at SCCA Chicago LC

If you need more information, please call: Greg Meier (630) 800-9990"

I believe currently there are 25-30 drivers signed up. Some fun machinery includes muscle cars (supercharged V8 mustang), little roadsters (60s MG MGB), various vettes, daily drivers of all sorts etc.

Entry list looks about half full - this should make for LOTS of seat time. Sign up if that's something that interest you
