Autocross in MI

Just moved to MI and I am looking for autocross events in the area. The closest I have found was an SCCA event that is in Toledo. I am in Jackson, MI I am fine with an hour or so drive and it also does not need to be SCCA. I am just looking for some place where I can go run my car.

Thanks.

Re: Autocross in MI

That's kind of a bummer. I guess I'm going to be drag racing then. I'm an hour from Milan.

Re: Autocross in MI

I haven't run any auto-x here in years. But back when I did do it, I preferred the ones held by the Corvette Club of Michigan Vs. the SCCA Detroit Region. The courses were a little "bigger", or more wide open, which I prefer. You can check their site and see where they run, and if there any events reasonably close to you.

Re: Autocross in MI

I checked the SCCA website and the closest thing for solo was in Toledo. I am currently in Jackson. I miss how close I was to Pitt Race, which had autocross every other week plus they had a match tour event there once a year. It was pretty awesome. Now I have like nothing. I've haven't finished my 9" so there is no drag racing for me until I do.

Is there any good place to sell parts up here? I am getting rid of my leather interior out of my car its the 98-02 graphite leather, I have noticed that CL is not great.

Re: Autocross in MI

Where do they run in Pontiac, Kush? Are they using the new M1 Concourse?
