Hello Autocrossers!

I thought this event was never going to get here, 5 week breaks are tough!  For some this weekend is a last chance seat time before the trip out to Lincoln for the Pro Finale and National Championships.  I would expect everyone will be giving it 110%.  If your just looking for some fun, this is your last chance before another long 4 week break.  Next event isn't until September 21, 2014. 

In the hunt for a trophy spot in your class?  Remember you must have 6 events to count for a full season.  Our Steel Cities 2014 season has 9 events posted.  This means your best 6 events count and the other 3 are "drop events." 

The event will be held on the VDA at PittRace and hold the same schedule as last year. (Listed below)

Hope to see you there!

Pre-registering is not required for our events but it helps very much for everyone.  It helps the registration team since your information is already in there.  It helps you, since you don't have to waste 20 min of your morning standing in a long line.  If you preregister, all you need to do is see Chris at the back of the timing trailer and sign the waiver on your way to do a course walk.  Its that easy!  The more people we have pre-register the quicker we can complete registration....the quicker we can get the event started.  Its the same cost.  Register online here:

Here is the press release regarding the karting series at Pitt Race. We are looking forward to getting started!

Allegheny Karting Series to Debut at Pitt Race May 31

Pittsburgh, PA (May 15, 2014) – A new series primarily based around the growing karting scene in Western Pennsylvania and Eastern Ohio is set to debut with a double race weekend - May 31 and June 1 on the highly acclaimed Wilson Circuit at Pittsburgh International Race Complex (PIRC).

“Pitt Race would like to announce that they are working with the newly formed Allegheny Karting Series,” noted PIRC Director of Operations Iltyd Geare. “ Allegheny Karting Series (AKS) was created to take karting to the next level. A fun, exciting, and family oriented program that focuses on the true meaning of racing.”

Allegheny Karting Series has brought in two experienced karting professionals with long time ties to karting in the region. Jamie Fleeson will be the Series Administrator and Dan Schlosser will be the Series Director, reprising roles from when they ran the local series at its popular and competitive peak.

“The Pitt Race staff did an incredible job the first weekend, putting on a very successful and well run event,” commented Dan Schlosser. “In speaking with Iltyd and Karting Director Stephanie Geare though after the event I think we all came away with the idea that there were certain aspects of their business that they wanted to concentrate on and grow which left an opportunity for us to come in and help out with the Series. We did six months of work together in a matter of days. I can’t thank them enough for the opportunity as well as the great working relationship we have already established.”

AKS will strive to deliver a friendly, fun and fair experience for the racers and families in the region. The goal is to provide a professional Series that is on par with PIRC itself. What has long been considered one of the most technically challenging and fun kart tracks in the country has seen unprecedented improvements under the guidance of owners Jim & Kathy Stout.

“Pitt Race stands behind the experience that racers demand. Jim and Kathy Stout represent the truest form of racing where Passion meets Performance! Knowing their passion for racing, a team has been assembled at Pitt Race, which is focused on delivering that experience!” Stephanie Geare continued, “We are excited to welcome Allegheny Karting Series and thank them for all their hard work, perseverance and support for the sport of karting.”   

The 2014 schedule for AKS will closely match the original Pitt Race Karting schedule.  Race Three, previously scheduled for May 25th, will not be contested but an additional date at the end of the season is being considered to maintain 10 additional races to
