    This Saturday FWR will be hosting a FUN Autocross event at Kitty Hawk Airport (Fort Wayne International Airport). This is a non-points event with a 80 car cap - due to an open entry run time for the Ferraris and Friend folks. If you would like to part take in the fun of this new site for us - you can register for the Autocross portion on HERE

    The site is concrete - never raced on - with an area of 1000ft x 550ft to work with...no poles - clean fun site for 6 runs!

    If you have questions or confused - call me or email me and I will clear it up for you.
