    So it looks like we may want to start looking for a new venue for the June 16th autocross at Carbon Motors.

    Surprised?  No.  A company can only go on not making anything for so long.

    Actually it means that the site is secure for us for a while. Carbon Motors never owned that building, it is still owned by the Town of Connersville. While the town still owns the property and Urban is the mayor, we have that site.

    Sweet! I love the food, the folks that come out, and the blacktop.

    If Connersville finds someone else to take over the building, I sure hope they make it available to us in the future.

    Tom,

     

    The event should take place as planned.  I don't see any reason why it would be cancelled.  The state of Carbon Motor's business has no impact.  The City of Connersville owns the property, and they want us there.  In fact, there are a couple of other SCCA events scheduled around the autocross on the same weekend, including a rally and a Street Survival School.

    Cool! I like that place. Slippery asphalt is my cup of tea. I hope it can be laid out to avoid the large chuckholes though.

    The road rally just after the street survival school is a short fun rally made for everyone, especially those who have never run one before.  Make this one your first one, short and easy.
