SATurday August 13th Autocross
James Woods HS in Winchester, VA is the location of the next Capital Driving Club autocross on SATURDAY August 13th.

Registration and tech inspection will be at 8:15 (giving you 15 extra minutes) and will promptly close at 8:45 to try to accommodate the full field, while still giving 6 runs. You must be DONE by 8:45. So if you arrive at 8:15 you won't have a problem. Don't arrive at the last minute.

Due to increases in costs from last year, the event fee for the Saturday autocross is $30 for members and $40 for non-members.

New Bar Codes

Make sure you download the new bar codes for 2011 (some of the early barcodes in early 2010 won't work. So if you want to use last year's barcodes, make sure it is the same format as the new barcodes).

We have a new index for lightweight cars (under 1500 pounds) and the bar codes are now different for small bore cars from the early barcodes. The early bar codes from 2010 just won't work. If you have a car weighing under 1500 pounds, we are in the process of updating it (we can also print it out at the event in this case).

So to be on the safe side, print out new barcodes that can be found on the web forum under autocross section. You have to register on the forum to open the attachments.

If you have problems, you can e-mail me at or we can also print barcodes for you at the event.

$10 Discount on Second Slot

To help increase interested in the July 9th event at James Wood HS in Winchester, VA, we are offering the following special.

For anyone paying for a second slot, the second slot will be $10 off. So if you are a member the second slot for a member will only be $20. If the second slot is for a non-member the cost will be $30 (rather than $40).

The second slot can also be used the same driver (e.g. they would drive in two heats) or for a guest.

If you sign up for a second slot, just type "Second Slot" in the Notes Section. Otherwise, we may think you mistakenly submitted duplicate reservations.

-Several people used the second slot for a guest (some that never autocrossed with CDC)
-Many participants used the second slot to get 12 runs
-Some used the second slot to be a point autocross in the 6 morning runs (since only the first 6 counted for points) then treated the afternoon as a TNT by trading cars with other two slot participants

This offer is only extended for this event at James Wood HS on Saturday August 13th, 2011 and will only be offered at James Wood HS.
