The Chattanooga Region of the Sports Car Club of America is sponsoring an Autocross Open House on Sept. 30. It’s an opportunity to drive a car at speed, or ride along as a passenger, on a track marked by traffic cones in a safe parking lot.
It will be held at Dade County High School, 300 Tradition Lane, from 9 a.m.-4 p.m.
It’s one car at a time and safe, said officials. There are safety stewards who are responsible for making sure everyone (drivers, workers and spectators) stay safe.
One free ride will be provided to anyone who wants to sample the experience.
Free hot dogs and cold drinks will also be available for everyone.
Participants mush sign a waiver form and wear a wristband to indicate that they've signed in.
To participate as a novice, drive any car or truck (no vans) and free instruction will be provided to first-timers. The fee for that is $35 plus $15 for the SCCA. Registration will be available at the high school on the day of the event.
The SCCA is the oldest motorsports organization in America, founded in 1944. It has thousands of members in 116 regions across the country. The Chattanooga region sponsors an autocross championship season every year. The web site is www.crscca.org.
