Thanks to the hollow threat of Hurricane Dennis to New Orleans, we've rescheduled our 7/10 event to the 31st. Hopefully, we can autocross between tropical storms to get our July event in. As a result, we pushed back the August 6-7 event weekend to August 13-14. Autocross Schedule:
- 8:30am-9:30am: Registration and Tech
- 9:30am-9:45am: Driver's Meeting, Novice Walkthrough
- 10:00am: First Car Out
- Post Event: Chili's Restaurant on Manhatten Autocross Entry Fee:
- SCCA Members: $20

Concession will be open all day Sunday. Hot dogs, chips, water and soft drinks are available. Base Entry:
- The Navy graciously lets Delta Region autocross at their base, provided we follow their rules. Drivers and Spectators are allowed to pass through the back gate, but must be on the base access list. You can get on the list if you pre-register for the event online. Spectators and guests can be added to your entry. If you think you might make it, go ahead and register to be on the list, just in case. You must be pre-registered by 9:00pm Thursday, July 28th.
- Access to the base will be through the rear gate only. Drivers won't be allowed through the front gate. The rear gate is open from 6:00 am - 9:30 am, 11:00 am -1:00 pm, 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm. You cannot enter or leave the base during any other time.
- Don't wander around the Base. We're allowed passage too and from the autocross site. The speed limit at the autocross site is 5mph (except on the track, of course).
- Vehicles may be subject to search by Soldiers With Guns. Don't argue... Sometimes they just want to check out your car.
- No firearms are permitted on Base. No, we won't bail you out either.
