Do you have any mods done to the car? what tires are on it?
Preparing for an autox is easy, a little check list I like to go over the day before the event.
1.) check fluid levels and adjust as needed
2.) check lug nut torque
3.) check battery tie down and connections
4.) pack a small cooler/bag with snacks, sandwiches, lots of water, and sunscreen
5.) remove any excess items you wont need for the autox
6.) if you have painters tape (1" works best) bring it for numbers, although with a blue car you'll want green painters tape
7.) check tire pressures, exact pressures depend on tire brand but with a WRX a good starting point is 38 front 36 rear.
8.) pack helmet, cameras, racing gloves, folding camping chair (all are optional)
Day of event/at event.
0.) arrive around the time registration opens, maybe a little earlier. Normally 8:30am.
1.) find a safe empty parking spot near a fellow subaru owner (not required but we like to stick together)
2.) unpack the car, empty glove box, remove floor mats, remove spare tire and jack. Usually there is grass space behind your parking spot where you can unload your stuff.
3.) find the registration table and register/sign in/pay
4.) apply numbers to your car using your painters tape or borrow some from a fellow competitor
5.) go through tech inspection (they check wheel bearings/lug torque, brake pedal, and battery)
6.) find a group who are going to walk the course and walk with them, don't hesitate to ask questions
7.) repeat 6
8.) repeat 7
9.) repeat 8
10.) attend driver's meeting
11.) attend novice walk through
It might be a little overwhelming being new, but it really is a great time and everyone is willing to help.
Can't wait to see another Subie out at events!! If you've got questions don't hesitate to ask.
Nice inexpensive helmet that'll be good till the 2020 helmets are released. http://www.saferacer.com/g-force-pr...010-helmet
