Brainerd MN AutoX June 16 + 17 2017

13 posts in this topic

Gauging interest in a WSCC Brainerd invasion for June 16 + 17.  This is the same weekend as the Calgary WCMA Regional Event.  Thought this might be a great substitute event for those that can't make it to Calgary.

This Autocross event is unusual as its a no work required event (no chasing cones).

Autocross only is $35.00 USD / day + BIR gate fees.

If I wasn't going to Calgary I would have considered this event. Too bad it's that same weekend.

Same here, TTS looks like a tone of fun. Would love jump in on that.

Ha, I would actually be in the area that weekend. But I'm sure my cousin won't be too happy if I skipped out on his wedding for autocross... lol.

Co-drive your car with him. Makes a great wedding gift!

I'm strongly considering this...

AutoX on a nice big lot with no marshaling?! What's not to love?

I'd also love to do the HPDE/lapping. Brainerd looks like a really nice circuit.

If we can get a convoy from here heading down, that would be awesome.

I would consider doing the auto-x as well. ~6 hrs is a lot less than the drive to Calgary.

Also the r8 would be a blast on the track portion.

I have many laps on that circuit. Two things to note:

1. It is a lot faster than it looks. The straght is about a mile long, turn one is banked and turn two has surprised many.

2. There is armco barrier before the bridge. People hit it. A fellow on an H2 hit it when I was there and was hurt really bad.

This was in the mid-late 70's, things may have changed.

I went to Proving Grounds with a few others a couple years ago. It's definitely a unique experience. I did not drive however just did media coverage. It's essentially folk fest for car nuts. The autocross course is on the skid pad which has walls on either side. Autocross, Drag, and Time Attack/HPDE going on at once. If you have the opportunity to go I would recommend it.
