Well the autocross season starts here (Wisconsin) in about 3 days with the first local autocross. I said i was gonna start a thread for this so hear it is.

Since the autocross is this sunday I've been looking into getting a 4 point harness to take in and out on race days. I've seen some that strap to the rear seats and then come up around the driver's seat. Anyone know where I could get the harness from?

It doesn't have to be like that one though, one that mounts to the floor would also be fine, thanks for the help.

Kevin

P.S. I'll make sure to post some pictures after sunday, if i can get the camera working.

Yeah...I think you told me about this before, but I don't remember where the post is...I'd like to check it out sometime...I'm in Madison ( Janesville for the summer), and I've always wanted to get into that but didn't know of anything nearby.

For the guys in WI, check out this site: Madison Autocross

They've got all the dates listed and a rulebook online. Most of them are about 10 or 15 minutes from the madison area. But at the end of last summer there was a HUGE one at miller park. I don't think they're planning on doing that again.

Kevin325i:
Great to have the opportunity to race on circuits. Can it be insured when damaging your car and be on circuit?

The only thing we have here are illigal street racing events, but that's nothing for me, because it is to dangerous

I hope there are racing days when I go to Canada later this year.

Well the stuff I race in is low-speed autocross (less than 60 mph, normally) and the risks to the car are minimal cause it's in a large open parking lot for most of them. The one coming up is actually at an oval track.

Basically if you wipe out around a turn and nail a parked car you pay for your car, but the club ussually has special insurance that will pay for the car not at fault.

Most of the time the worst your gonna do for damage to your car is leave an orange scuff from a cone or two that comes off next time you wash it.

Kevin

P.S. I'm not sure about the rules with the highspeed autocrosses. Basically all I know is that you've got to have a roll bar and race harnesses and a bunch of other stuff. I don't do it cause I don't got the cash to put into that stuff. It's just nice to go and tear around in the car, slide some turns and not get a ticket for it.

Well, I made my mind. I am going to be in the next meeting on Saturday. So I can learn the rules and join the club. Then, hopefully, I will see you at the next event, whenever that is used .

PS: the only rough part is gonna be back and forth drive to Mad-town from Milwaukee ghead ghead .

I'll look around and see if there isn't a milwaukee section for the SCCA. There probably is, but it'd be cool to have some more bimmers there. Some lady drives an M roadster there and there was an M3 at a couple events. Oh yeah and there was a little old 320i that shows up sometimes too.

If there was one or two I'd say to make sure to make it would be any of the ones for the rock county airport. Mostly because it looks like it's going to be just cones in a big parking lot, i think those are the most fun.

Kevin

P.S. hopefully I'll have some pictures wheni get back.

P.S. I think the yankee boys are a little to the east for us, WI: fat people, beer, and brats.... not just cows anymore. Hey that should be WI new slogan, we could like put it on our welcome to WI signs and stuff....

No doubt, my friends down here just have no idea what kind of drinking goes on up there.

i brought one of my good friends home (Racine) with me, and a week later on the way bask (to TN), he said, "dude, your family is a bunch of alcoholics!"

People down here just don't understand. You guys ever had O&H Kringle? (sorry its 2am, kinda hungry)
