Per the GGVCOA:
Thunderhill has been canceled and will no longer be a part of this event.

We are going to work on some hotel/motel discounts if possible. Pre registration and membership will have it's privileges.

The details are still being worked out, and suggestions are welcome.

Prices are $55 for a bed, $50 for a floor. That's per person and is for Friday night check-in and Monday morning check-out. If somebody wants a room with less people in it, that's not an issue we can make that work. Also if somebody wants to check in later or check out earlier that's not an issue.

Hi Everyone,

There have been a few questions about helmets for the autocross, so please note that:

Helmets are required.

As of Wednesday, 4/21/2010, we are working on some loaners, but don't have confirmation just yet if they will be made available.

If you have any spare helmets, please bring them with you on the day of the event!

If you can help us find loaners or have any questions, please let us know.

Take care,
volvie!
