Hershey 10/28 (Sold out) & 10/29
« on: September 21, 2017, 01:01:41 PM »
Anyone else going to the State Championships... errr... I mean Susq SCCA events #13 and #14?

I'm already registered. These usually cap early (especially Saturday). Waiting until the last second usually hurts, especially since hotels tend to sell out in advance this time of year out there (I speak from experience).

  • Nationals Style Courses
  • Best drivers from all over PA (and some from MD/NY/NJ)
  • Next to HersheyPark, Chocolate World, and all things fun
  • Troeg's Brewery
  • Lot is larger than PittRace, North Park, and Wyotech combined

Saturday: https://www.motorsportreg.com/events/susq-2017-autocross-13-hershey-park-scca-susquehanna-450292
Sunday: https://www.motorsportreg.com/events/susq-2017-autocross-14-hershey-park-scca-susquehanna-782509

I already have a hotel booked at the Red Roof on Chocolate Ave. I've stayed there a few times before. It's quaint, the rooms are nice, it's cheap (for Hershey), has a bar/grille across the street (Dukes), is Uber distance from Troeg's, and is only a 5 minute drive to the park/lot with Sheetz/McDonalds only 5 minutes away for your morning needs as well. Plus has room for trailers.

Anyone else interested?

Hmmm yeah I guess I'm interested. Question is do they let me run my half-assed IT car in DSP as per SCCA rules...

Josh - don't see why not? Anything not DSP legal with it?

Bill - 150. It's still early, but the last 2 times I've gone to events there, they capped at least a week out.

Well, short answer is yes. If someone familiar with allowed SP modifications looks at the car they will say it's not legal. Longer answer is it doesn't have to be DSP legal it has to be IT legal (which it is, per my log book and event history) to run in DSP BUUUUUT not everyone is familiar with that rule and it can cause some confusion. Not that it matters much because its a shitty DSP car and anyone with a real DSP car will crush me on tire width allowance alone (ITS is limited to a 7" wheel OR 225 tire).

Take the rule from autox rule book and ITS ruleset. It it's their responsibility to deem your car illegal not the other way around. If you get protested they have to name the rule. If it's rule overrides then they need to know the it rule. If they don't then their protest is invalid.

It's just not worth it, especially if I drive 4 hours to autox. At that point I'll tell them to put me in whatever class helps them sleep at night. Point of the original question is that I don't really want to have to deal with that.

Might be able to convince Chris to be head out there in the WRX for the weekend and see how it compares to Danny's Type R in DS.

I am going and I am pretty sure Chris will be co-driving my car and Jay will be coming as well.  Family might come too and go to Hershey Park if the weather is nice as a 5 year old can only watch so many runs, even if it is daddy and his friends.

I think we're going to try to do Saturday at least. Maybe NHSCC on Sunday, then the torturous off season begins.

Steel City Indoor Karting twice a month fills the void quite nicely.

If you're interested in going - registration is filling up quickly. The event is already more than halfway full.

If you're on the fence, you can always register and cancel.

Get in while you can. *cough* I also have an extra unclaimed bed in my hotel if anyone's interested.
