May as well, eh?

Want to avoid late fees and just forgetting to register for Autocrossers, Inc. events?

AI Season Subscription :

http://www.dlbracing.com/clubs/regis...e&EventID=3800

Preregister for all six events for $190.

If you're not an SCCA member, you will still be responsible for the $10/event temporary membership fee for any event you are not a full SCCA member.

The first event registration (3/22) will open on 2/22, if you are looking for single event registration.

We are also hosting the Evolution Performance Driving School at the Waldorf Blue Crabs Stadium lot on 3/21 (a Saturday). Registration is $275/driver, and is through http://www.evoschool.com.

See you there!

I've been looking for a local Evo school. This is great. I was wondering if I had to drive up to Philly for one.

At the evo school, you drive your own car right?

I've never taken an Evo school, but from what I have read/heard they are much better than WDCR. It is a national organization, not local, the instructors are contenders at Nationals.

From their website...

Quote:
The "original" Evolution program as developed by the McKamey Autocross School. This first step in the Evolution is where all students start, regardless of experience. Daylong course builds upon students existing skills, while introducing new ideas to improve one’s times. Students both ride and drive with Evolution trained national caliber drivers to learn where they are fast and where they need to improve. Small student teacher ratio of 6:1 insures quality instruction time. Computerized timing provides segment times, which can be compared at various times during the day. Do to some factors such as, weather, segment times may not be available and are beyond our control.

Combined with race proven skills, concepts, and techniques this course will improve the performance of all drivers on both road and track. Even experienced driver’s benefit from the Phase 1 course as a refresher for those things they’ve forgotten over the years or perhaps never learned. No matter what type of car you drive the Phase 1 skills will improve your overall driving abilities.

Note: All students must provide their own two-seat vehicle for the day. Two driver cars are welcome.

Yeah, I've heard that too, I was just hoping someone with experience at both could chime in.

I've done the level 1 and 2 wdcr schools and they helped a great deal, I'm just trying to figure out *what* makes the evo schools better.

FWIW, it seems that the people they select to teach at the WDCR schools are usually nationally competitive as well. They may not be as big names as the likes of Junior Johnson and Sam Strano, but still able to trophy at nats.

I guess I'm more interested in what the differences are in curriculum or in the instructing ability of the instructors, rather than the instructor's personal skill.

I did learn a lot from the WDCR events, but I wouldn't take them again. The level 1 was very beginner and the level 2 was basically a test and tune. This seems like the next step. I signed up since these are not very frequent and I'm grabbing it while I can.

I have done two "weekday" WDCR schools, as well as Evo Phase I/II. I have not done the "phased" WDCR events.

Both are good and worth your money, IMHO.

The neat things about the Evo schools :
-You get instructors you've never had before, and might never have again. IMHO, this is a good thing - you don't want to get too familiar with your instructor as it is easier for both parties to take things for granted.
-They teach in a different (not BETTER, just DIFFERENT) way. At an Evo school you are always doing something on a course of some kind - no drills. At the WDCR schools you get figure 8 time, slalom time, course time, etc. Both are good. If you want to drill down on a specific skill the WDCR schools are great for that, because it won't get "lost" in the rest of the course.
-They have a very scientific approach to things. Phase I uses the same course, no matter where the school happens, in the entire country. They clock separate sectors so that they can say you were x faster in the slalom, but y slower in the sweepers, etc. The Evo Phase III school even uses datalogging.

I'm going to do Evo III at some point. If I was 100% positive my car was going to be ready I would do this one

I plan to be at all of the Fed Ex events, but probably only one Blue Crabs event. Just too far of a drive for me when I can go to CBP in Philly in less or about the same time...and the STU competition is heavy up there. Also doing a full WDCR season, I can't frickin' wait!!!

The registration for the first event (3/22 at Blue Crabs Stadium in Waldorf) is now open : http://www.dlbracing.com/clubs/regis...true&SPN=false. $35 for SCCA members, $45 for non-members (includes a $10 temporary membership that can be used for $15 off a yearly SCCA membership if used within 60 days of the event).

Registration will close on 3/20, period. Don't bother asking (crying, whining, etc.) after that. It doesn't look like we'll be doing the late fee this year for people registering at the last second; we'll just be closing registration two days before the event, and leaving it at that.

I'm not sure about run groups, and that likely won't be set until Tuesday's meeting. Right now, the talk is three runs groups (in order to have a good worker pool and efficient run groups), to be set day-of-event based on class entry.

Hope to see some of you there!

Karen

Default EVO School

The Evo school we are hosting is a Challenge School. If you've done a WDCR L1 and L2 school than this Challenge School is for you. This is an all out, get the most out of your car, challenge between you and the instructor. I've never been to one, but certainly lots of people all across the country have. This is the same school that you'll get elsewhere hosted by EVO.

This is now changed. The Evolution school is a Phase I.
