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.
We will have 4 of us at Kitty Hawk Friday at 3PM to setup the course for Saturday's event and will be out of there at 5:30PM. If you are interested in helping us with setup - shoot me a call or email and let me know you will be coming.
HOPE YOU CAN MAKE IT - even if you do not race - at least come out and enjoy all the fabulous cars and possible celebrities in town!
Now if you want to enter the whole thing with Ferraris and Friend (details below) - visit www.ferrarisandfriends.com for those details and a place to register for the event there.
There is a lot of chatter about Tim Allen going to the Friday reception at Sycamore Hills - that will be a fun time!
