RIT hosts an SCCA event in their parking lot. Check out the SCCA's website. or possibly RIT's.

The RIT course is usually pretty cool as well. I tend to think its a little easier getting section notes down for new guys because its not 1 large lot, the curbs help a bunch.

Its like close, short course racing, typically only in the 1st 2 gears. The barriers are cones, so ifyou don't make your line right, bump a cone, usually you'll be just fine.

You can always just show up and watch. Chances are if you ask nicely you can go for a ride with a driver so you get the idea of how it works.

If you show up day of and decide you want to register, typically its only a couple bucks more.

You should definitely go if only to watch on the first day - they are a BLAST.

http://www.wny-scca.com/ for our WNY/Buffalo

http://www.flr-scca.com/ for your Rochester

But many of the events are shared because they are just within an hour of each other. Like its not an exclusive "club" thing.

Anybody want to meet up on Saturday for lunch? Looks like a pretty nice day on the weather forecast (only nice day in the next 5, as a matter of fact).

My JBSpeed M3 spoiler arrives tomorrow BTW.
