“Last Blast, At Last”

Saturday, August 26th, 2000 Bennett Kartway - Utica, IL

Salt Creek Sports Car Club (SCSCC) presents a medium-speed Autocross. Cars will run one at a time on a closed course, marked without pylons (at least not too many) and timed to electronically to the nearest 1/1000 of a second (unless our timer chooses not to cooperate). Bennett is a 0.6 mile pro kart track with a 500 ft straight. Novice drivers are welcome, and it’s easy to find an instructor to ride along with you, if so requested. Timed runs usually consist of 2 consecutive laps (but, occasionally, we'll throw in some pylons, or take advantage of the track's "figure-eight" nature). Attendance permitting, we may even have a few "fun-runs" at the end of the day.

Course Open for Walking 9:00 - 10:15 Lotus Corps Members $25.00
