Just trying to figure out how many of us will be attending. I know that myself, Tony, and probably Kelly Nelson will be going. Eric has also stated that he is going. Anyone else out there going?
Time for the SCCA Scooby revolution to go public! Scooby invasion time.

Allright, one more for the list.
I'm guessing we'll have around 10 scoobies competing, which is pretty awesome considering that a few years ago, the subaru was a joke when it came to the autoX scene.

I am there!

For those that need a little more info, it is June 16-18.

There is a schedule and more info here:
http://www.scca.org/amateur/prosolo2/2000/harrisburg/index.html

There are some interesting differences between Solo II and Prosolo. In Prosolo, two mirror courses are set up next to each other and there is a drag-style start with a Christmas tree. Your best time on each course are combined to make your total time. More detail here:
http://www.scca.org/amateur/prosolo2/index.html

Ok, since we have so many Scoobies going, I will make a point of getting there early on friday and scope out a decent, large paddock area for us all. It will probably be pretty tight, since we usually dont get that much paddock area at that site for regular autocross. And as Kelley so well explained (very well put btw), in ProSolo there are 2 courses, side by side. Anyway, everyone should drive around and look for the Scooby site before parking anywhere else. Anyone besides Richard bringing a trailer? And how about mentioning your class and number in the posts, it will make it alot easier to identify everyone at the event.

Uh, not to discourage anyone from coming, but this event is not, well, for the inexperienced. By all means come out and watch, but really, they limit the number of entries, and it is probably full by now. It costs 55 bucks to enter and it lasts all day saturday and sunday and starts at like 3pm friday. You will be required to work if you run, twice as a matter of fact. STS will most likely run first thing in the morning saturday and sunday and first thing in the afternoon on saturday. So, really, if you have little or no autocross experience, it really would not be worth it to run, but definitly come out and watch. As for spectating, it is way better than a regular autocross. After the saturday morning session, they re-pair the classes, 1st to last to you get to see the leaders battle it out. And its got the drag race start and you get to go right up to the start line and watch, smell and see the burning rubber. Just remember to sign the waiver and wear the wristband (and maybe some sunglasses). Harrisburg is not as good as Petersburg for spectators, but you can go around atleast 3 sides of the lot. And not to be obnoxious, but if you are not racing, please park outside of the paddock area. It really does get very cramped for all the competitors and some of them are not as nice as us Scooby folks, especially when they are loosing and someone accidentially parks in their paddock spot. This is a National level event with serious implications for the season for some people and Id hate to see any of you first timers get **** on by one of those 'too competitive for their own good' types. And really, it is a select few that act like that, most would give you their last three gallons of gas so you could run the Open Challenge without running out of gas. And they did just that for me this past weekend.

Morale of the book above. Come out and watch. But dont plan on running if you dont have alot or atleast a little practice. And again, come out and watch. This really is more of a spectator sport than any regular autocross will ever be!

Well as it's my first attempt at a non-regional autox I have a couple of questions for the ol' timers: What's with the ProSolo license? It says you don't need one for the first event but you would for your next, but they never explain how to get it. Also, where is everyone staying? I figure it's only 1.5 hours from my place just West of Philly, so I could drive there everyday but would rather not. Lastly, what do I have to do to be eledgable for contingency money (it's a long shot, but couldn't hurt)? Thanks.

Tony, hey, Im no old timer. Geez man Im only 28. hehe
So the deal with the license is the SCCA wants 50 extra bucks from you if you are doing more than one ProSolo per year. Basically, first event is a 'freebee', when they ask for your license at registration tell them you are a rookie and they say, well, never mind then. And if it is your second event, bring 50 bucks or a creditcard (yea they take them at registration) fill out the form they give you and thats it. In a couple of weeks you will get a new SCCA license with ProSolo as one of the license's, instead of it just saying non applied for. And dont forget to bring your rule book to registration. They ask to see it!

About staying out there, it is far better to stay close by. We stayed at a friends cousins house in Indy when we went to Peru, it really sucked getting up at 5:30 saturday to make it to the track by 7:30. Do yourself a favor and book a room at one of the recomended hotels. I havent made reservations yet, been slackin, and right now I cant find the hotel info, but I will post it when I find it. I better do that today. I think both of the hotels they list are about 10minutes from the site.

The Subaru money is automatic. You just have to enter in a Subaru product, got that covered right. The Honda money, well they are supposed to have stickers, but Honda hasnt sent them to the SCCA yet. If you are on Kumho tires, you will need to send them a waive and release form, call them and ask for stickers, put one on each side of the car, take pictures and send them into Kumho, along with the contingency form that must be signed by the Impound/Tech officials. All forms are available from the Kumho Website, under motorsports.

This event is going to be great! Im so glad you all are getting involved.

Thanks. I believe Kelley's first link has the hotel info in it.

This'll be the first test of the AVS S1's too, regardless, I think the nut behind the wheel will be the limiting factor.

Just called the Best Western. They still have pleanty of rooms left but they are smoking (I don't give a crap) for $56/night with two queen size beds. Seems very resonable. Won't even need to pull the eight-people-in-one-room trick.

You do need to reserve by 6/1 though.

Thanks Tony.

Dont worry about that loose nut. My dad's a TV repairman, he's got an awesome set of tools, we can fix it. (hehehe-remember Fast Times?)

Ok, Tony and everyone else that is going to race. Come earlier and bring your walking shoes. I will get the skinny on the course from the McKamey guys, walk some different lines and we can all pow wow about it. The idea here is to get every subaru on the fastest line. Then we can watch the other classes to see how they may be doing it differently/better/worse. Because this is a National level course, there should be plenty to look at on course, and that means they will also set it up so you can waste time. The key is to realize when they are setting you up for a fall or the win. We can do it, my strategy has merit, you will just have to follow the line, and brake appropriately. Now if you have never drag raced, go do it at least once, not for speed and 1/4m times, but concentrate on R/T and 60' times. That is the element of Drag racing that is most related to ProSolo. And remember, go on the third yellow, not the green.

PS, you guys still doing the Scooby award? I was telling the 'guys' about it this weekend. They didnt understand why you all gave me that mug as we were leaving that event. They were jealous after I told them. We really do have a great club here!

Great minds think alike. I was just thinking about a FSD trophy for the ProSolo. Yes, Philly region still hands out the FSD (fastest Subaru of the Day) trophy, though not an official trophy it gets awarded by the Subaru drivers themselves. You won it fair that day at our Winter event. I don't think we ever doubted we'd get it back (even though your kid took a liking to it). The Harrisburg ProSolo isn't a Philly event so we'd have to make up something new, any other cartoon character mugs your kid would like?

As some of you know from other threads, I'm in for the Harrisburg Pro.

Honestly, I expect to get my a$$ kicked, but I wanted to step up and support both Subaru and Street Modified by making the appearance.
This will be my first Pro; the Ayer, MA tour event the week before will be my first national level event in 10 years of Solo2. OT-> Funny thing, Eric was alreday a noticeably better driver than me last year when in his second season of racing (if I remember correctly). My point, remember his suggestion about listening to the good drivers not just the "old timers" with many years behind them. I'd hate to steer someone wrong with *my* advice (pardon the pun).

Hey guys, I just FAXed over my event registration this afternoon. It sounds like there are still spaces, but I wouldn't waste any time.

The entry form can be downloaded from the harrisburg link in my earlier post. The link is near the top of the page. If you are not a member of the SCCA you will need to fill out that paperwork and send it in too.

Lets figure out hotel rooms ASAP. I need a place to flop too

Eric, what is the GEEZ contingency like?

Hey Tony I'M going to win the mug!........well I can dream can't I?

I just hope that they are still taking registrations.
I'm a little nervous about running, since I have maybe a year of AutoX experience, I don't want to kill a whole pack of cones and get shunned by the ProSolo elite......aaahhh who gives a fuuuuuuuuck anyway, here comes the big blue cone killing machine..

I *just* made my motel reservation at 19:00 EDT. Since my codriver just had to bail on all the events for the last three weeks of June, I was going to offer a spare bed to a fellow Sube owner in a pinch. Then....I realized I hadn't made any reservations.

The Red Roof Inn on Progress Ave (see event 'flier') should still have some rooms 800.843.7663. Mine was/is $59/night.
Best Western was sold out when I called today.

I havent been able to get ahold of Byron Short about the Geez contingency. ?

Baltimore to Harrisburg Farm Show Complex is about 1 - 1 1/2 hours. You go up through York. Its an easy drive really.
