Our Mission

We provide a safe and controlled environment to learn and practice the limits of you and your car's ability.  Experienced instructors are available at our events and they are willing to help you, at all levels of driving skill, from first timers on up.

Club Profile

THERE IS A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A FAST CAR AND A FAST DRIVER!!!

Club Meetings

The Club has regular meetings (see the Calendar page) to discuss club business and talk about cars and having fun driving cars.  Our meetings are typically at Rudy's BBQ at Airline and South Padre Island Drive, next to Lowe's.  Check out our club on the 2nd Wednesday of each month at 7:00 pm.

OUR EVENTS

AUTOCROSS (SOLO) - Our premier event is autocross the first full weekend of each month.  Solo is the SCCA brand name for autocross competition.  Solo events are driving skill contests that emphasize the driver's ability and the car's handling characteristics.  This is accomplished by driving a course that is designated by traffic cones on a low hazard location, such as a parking lot or inactive air field.  While speeds are no greater than those normally encountered in legal highway driving, the combination of concentration and car feedback creates an adrenaline pumping experience.  It is like being in a movie chase scene, only you are holding onto the steering wheel instead of a box of popcorn!  Our autocross events are held at Waldron Field in Flour Bluff (see Map to Track page).

 

RALLYCROSS - We are currently searching for a rallycross location.  We try to hold rallycross events quarterly, based on the demand.  Rallycross is autocross on grass, gravel or dirt.  Rallycross is the most widespread and readily accessible form of extreme dirt motorsport in the SCCA, and the perfect place to see if you have what it takes to powerslide your way to victory.  Imagine a scaled down version of a rally stage laid out on a non-paved plat of land where the course is delineated by traffic cones instead of trees or rocks.  The entry fees and equipment requirements are considerably less than those necessary to enter any other forms of performance rally, so in most locations one need only arrive at event registration with a sound, hardtop vehicle and the entry fee.  Many SCCA regions have helmets to loan and will assist the first time competitor with entering the appropriate class, making their way through technical inspection and finding their way around the course.  Best of all, it's great fun!
