924S944.com 2021 Autocross Series Continues on February 21

Elise Marquette in her 87 924S getting ready for her first run.

We have created the 924S944.com Autocross Series in conjunction with the Florida Citrus Region PCA Autocross Championship, and the first weekend was Sunday, January 17.  There were a few 944’s and 924S’s who joined the other Porsches and other cars that totaled almost fifty entrants.  Two of our compatriots scored in the fray, with Elise Marquette in her nice 924S and Joe Maru in his ’88 944 putting in some reasonably quick times.

Participating in this year-long series will earn you points towards the Florida Citrus Region championship along with points toward our 924S944.com Autocross Series Championship.  In our series you will be competing against other 924, 944, 924S, 951, 968, and 928 cars for the overall 2021 Championship.  The points are awarded on the same scale as Formula 1: 25 points for first, 18 for second, and so on through tenth place in your class.

Most Florida Citrus Region autocross events are held at the Lake County Sheriff’s Office/Lake Tech Institute Public Safety Training Center at 130000 Frankies Road in Tavares.  Get directions here.  The facility has a huge driving pad with different layouts each time designed by our friends at the Martin Sports Car Club.  With pre-registration, you will get a map of the track layout a few days before the event so that you can see what you will be driving.  Gates normally open at 7 am giving you plenty of time figure out your line to the fastest time.  Timing is done electronically so that you can see your time at the end of your lap, hopefully improving each time out.

So go to ClubRegistration.net and get involved.  Join us on Sunday, February 21 and get involved in the 924S944.com Autocross Series!  Long range weather forecasts say Sunny and 70 degrees!  Here is a direct link to the February 21 Event. https://clubregistration.net/events/signUp.cfm/event/11215
