2011 VCMC Alumni Invitational


  • 2011 VCMC Alumni Invitational

    It's time to drag those Civics and Camaros out of the weeds!

    VCMC is inviting all past, present, and future members to the VCMC Alumni Invitational on Friday July 1, 2011. The goal of this event is to reunite as many old-time members for some tire shredding fun, so dust off the Rolodex and drag out as many of your old autocross buddies as you can.

    Pre-registration is available on Karelo.

    Membership is *required* for this event and is available on-line for $50 (only $40 before March 31). The entry fee will be waived for renewing members who: a) held a VCMC membership prior to 1997 or b) have not held a VCMC membership in the past 5 years.

    For current members, the fee for pre-registered entries is $30. On-site registration is $40. For brand new members, this qualifies as your first free event.

    Helmets are required (minimum Snell 2000). Loaner helmets are available. Drivers must have a valid drivers licence or permit. All vehicles must undergo a technical inspection at the event.

    The morning session will be practice runs to allow competitors to shake off rust and "scrub in" their 20 year old slicks (bring your own Formula V spray). Official competition runs begin in the afternoon and will be scored on best PAX time with penalties. Drivers will be divided into three teams: Alumni (pre 1997), Newbies (2007+), and Senior (everyone else). The team with the best PAX score (average PAX time of top 5 team members) wins the 2011 Invitational.

    If none of this makes sense to you, don't worry. Just show up and drive. We'll take care of the rest.

    The BC Driving Centre has a strict sound limit of 92dB. In most cases this means full exhaust system with a quiet muffler and sound insulation for race engines. Baffles and turndowns are good to have on hand.

    We'll be firing up the grill and serving up some barbeque during the event. Free for current club members, but let us know you're coming so we know how much food to bring.

    The club's web forum is a great way to find the latest info for this event and to get in touch with the ELT and other members:
