Do we have a handle on what helmets may be available for loan? Ref: style, size??  This is more than likely a one time event for me, and I would prefer to use a loaner if available for the full event rather than spend a bunch on a helmet I will use just once.
I wear glasses so I suspect an open visor is required.

The helmets will be glasses friendly... in fact we've got a few sizes in a number of different styles and sizes from about three different manufacturers.

In April, I'll begin gathering details from all registered parties... including information for loaner helmets.

So if you haven't yet registered, please go ahead and do that now so you'll be first on the contact list!!

Here's a video of the track a little more current... from Sept 2010, after Armco was installed...

This is also run in the CLOCKWISE direction... I'm not certain if it's been decided yet which direction we'll run.

Enjoy... Video has a data overlay by Traqmate so you can get a feel for speeds around the track (but keep in mind that I'm running on r-compound tires with a roll bar and harnesses... YRMV)

This was a stop gate, which was part of the autocross training. The object was to stop the car quickly without letting the nose dip down or passing the cones. To add interest mother nature added a few passing showers, which added to the fun... LOL
 
 

 
 
 

 
 
 

 
Chas made the stop an was on the accelerator to the next gate about a 1/2 mile down which required you to stop inside the a coned off box. Not as easy as it sounds when your going full throttle and have to stop.

 

 

 
Ray came up a little short in on this stop, but he nailed it most of the time. I was riding with him to be the "judge" of his stopping and not crossing the line... He did a great job... that "Guy" can drive

We had a fantastic time @ North Carolina Center for Automotive Research, NCCAR Inc. with other members of the Crossfire club even with my car giving me problems, throwing codes for MAF and Throttle Position sensor and going in limp mode. Fred our Crossfire tech we had on hand was very helpful, cleared codes and offered to get me the parts and send them out to me. Nice to see and be with some familiar faces and meeting new ones.It was a great experience racing on a track. Another item scratched off my bucket list.

Nice pictures Andrew/Grace.  What a great time.  NCCAR and Asphalt Ventures Staffs are A-1.  Thanks to Fred Meganhartt for being the go-to mechanic for our Crossfires.  His presence was invaluable.  Thanks to Andrew, Ray and Tony for setting up such a fantastic event.  Cant wait until the next one.
