    Will the classroom portions be indoors, or out in the parking lot? (Sorry if I overlooked that somewhere). Just considering how much weather to plan for.

    I assume we should bring something to number our car, right? And a brain bucket?

    We're going to try to seek shelter in the event of rain, however I can't confirm that we will be able to use an indoor facility. We would be able to atleast use the stadium overhang in front of the gates.

    We will have painters tape on hand to number with.

    And yes, bring a helmet if you have one. (aka brain buckets) If you don't, no worries, we have loaners available.

    My one and only autocross was your last event of 09 in a torrential downpour. The only way I know to do this is in an inch of water so if it rains it's all good.

    I definitely understand the value of driving drills in the wet. But with the weather now calling for "100% chance of heavy rain with high wind", it seems like any kind of outdoor classroom session might be entirely impractical....

    The stadium has a large overhang in front of the gates. It's not indoors, but it works. CDC had a horribly rained out event a couple summers ago, winds strong enough that everything not heavy or secure enough was flying all over the place. We took cover under the overhang and didn't get wet. I don't think Saturday will be as bad as that was lol.

    Sorry to hear that ...

    The rest of the participants should thank you for the additional seat time.

    I'm registered but won't be able to make it either. While prepping the car for tomorrow I found that my battery is DOA and there is no hope for it until Monday. Sounds like more seat time for everyone else.
