In case you're tired of the crappy weather we've been having lately and can't wait to get to drive your car (and get good at it!)...

Registration for SCCA-Chicago Region 2009 Learning Curve (auto-x school) is currently open.

"A fun, inexpensive and safe way of testing your driving ability and car performance. Solo events are a form of automotive competition in which one car at a time negotiates a prescribed course in the shortest possible time. The events are open to anyone who has a sports car, compact or small sedan. The only requirements to compete are a valid state driver's license and a car which will pass a safety technical inspection. Drivers compete in numerous car classes for stock street cars, modified street cars, race prepared cars and modified race cars.

The Learning Curve
Chicago Region Solo drivers school is an excellent way to learn about and become involved in Solo events. It is a two-part school that consists of a classroom session and a day and a half of on track instruction. Instruction will be provided by experienced, award winning drivers (many with National Championship credentials). Because the entry is limited to only 100 students, there will be a very favorable student/teacher ratio allowing for maximum driving time and personal instruction. The school is for novice drivers with less than one year or no solo experience. Students must attend both days.

WHEN:
Saturday April 4 8:00am - 5:00pm
Sunday April 5 8:00am - 5:00pm

WHERE:
Route 66 Raceway, Joliet, IL

HOW:
Return the entry form with the $120 registration fee payable to Chicago Region, SCCA, no later than March 27, 2009 to: Jennifer Liccardi - 2911 Vimy Ridge Drive, Joliet, IL 60435 (815) 609-9005. To register on line go to http://register.scca-chicago.com

NEED MORE INFORMATION call: Ed Locke (630) 853-2144"

For on-line registration go to http://www.scca-chicago.com/solo/2009/learncurve.html and click the nice, big blue rectangular "Online Registration" button at the bottom of the page.


This is a really fun way to start the season by the way :)

About 40 spots left - sign up if you plan on going since spots tend to fill up closer to the school date (especially as the weather gets nicer). I just hope weather is close to what we had this weekend.

22 spots open as of tonight to my knowledge.

Weather looks decent for at least one of the days (hope we get a better forecast closer to the weekend):
Saturday - Partly cloudy. Highs in the mid 50s and lows in the upper 30s.
Sunday - Cloudy with rain. Highs in the low 50s and lows in the mid 30s.
Dress accordingly if you're planning on attending. I'd recommend a good wind breaker among the line up.
