Results for our 6/28 Event are posted. You can always find past results on our results page. It was a hot and sunny day out on Sunday, a perfect day overall for autocross with drivers receiving a total of 10 runs. Congratulations to Joe Zanavich for RAW FTD in an STU 2008 Nissan 350z and to Andres Rodriguez for PAX FTD in an H-Street 2017 Ford Fiesta ST. Thanks to everyone that came out to make this a successful event.
Results are posted for our 6/21 event and we have a 2020 Results page where you can find this and future results for 2020. Congratulations to Pat Salerno who took both PAX and raw FTD in his Porsche Cayman GT4.
Forty-seven drivers showed up to our first event after the Covid-19 outbreak. The day was warm and sunny, but a steady breeze off the water kept things from getting too uncomfortable.
Participants had their temperature taken before entry to the event and all participants wore masks and maintained social distancing both in the pits and at their workstations. Workstations were spread out more with individuals posted at various areas instead of in groups with hand signals given to radio in penalty calls.
The event was run as two heats and participants were able to get in eight total runs before the end of the day.
Big thanks to Geoff LeMoine for blowing the majority of the sand and dirt off the lot the day before the event. Big thanks to all the FCSCC regulars that came out to make the event run successfully and thank to the participants for their cooperation in keeping everyone safe.
In addition to the previously noted waivers we also have a waiver regarding Covid-19 that must be printed, signed and brought to the event. Due to the late notice we will bring copies of this to the event.

Our final non-points event was held on Sunday November 10. A chilly day welcomed the 51 registered entrants with temperatures only reaching high 40s. The sun did come out at times and the heat format enabled competitors to get their tires warmed up for a total of eight runs. Congratulations to Tamra Krystinik for PAX FTD and to Joe Zanavich for raw FTD. Final results can always be found on our results page.
Eighteen drivers attempted to take Todd Kean down in our Miata runoff car, but he managed to come through and win the title of Autocrosser of The Year once again despite some tough competition!
Drivers praised the setup of the car this year as balanced and fun. In addition to replacing some worn out Konis our crack team of runoff car mechanics replaced the suspension top hats and added NB style shock mounts to increase suspension travel. After that the car was given a performance alignment and it performed consistently throughout the day. Drivers not in the runoff ran heats and received up to nine total runs. Thanks to all those people that came out and helped make this event happen
