AMEC AUTOCROSS NEWS
The Adirondack Motor enthusiast Club just finished a very successful 7 days of ice racing over the winter and we are now pleased to announce our 2010 high speed autocross series to be held at the newly re-paved Albany Saratoga Speedway.
Our autocross last November was a sell out with a waiting list. We have a full schedule of 6 dates set for the summer of 2010 we hope you will all be able to attend. We tried very hard to not conflict with holidays or any other auto related events put on by all the local clubs that we could find.
Our first event is Saturday May 8th 2010 this should be a great way to start the season off with AMEC. There is a full day of activities being held at the speedway. AMEC will hold our autocross during the day and at the same time there will be a car and truck show put on by Firebird Nation of North America to benefit Saratoga Bridges then at 6PM there will be a drifting show. This should be a great day so bring the family!
The rest of the summer autocross dates are below please put them on your calendars!
Autocross #2 is Sunday June 13th
Autocross #3 is Saturday July 10th
Autocross #4 is Sunday August 15th
Autocross #5 is Saturday September 25th
Autocross #6 is Saturday October 16th
We are hoping to have on line registration set up by April 1st 2010 to start taking pre registrations for the fist event in May.
Albany Saratoga Speedway is ready and waiting for us. The track has all new top quality pavement and has been widened so we have more options for course design.
We plan to run with simple classes very close to the way we did last November.
Last year's sold out event thread is HERE. There are lots of great pics in that thread.
We hope to also run the 2010 summer autocrosses so that the participants do not have to work. AMEC plans on doing the work for you we want you to come and just have fun! On the other hand if you would like to help out with anything we will always accept help. We are looking for dedicated people to help so don’t hesitate to get involved if you want to be a part of the set up team.

Is there any way I can get my name on the list for all but the second event?
Wait until we get the sign up thing set up.
Yes Dave is working on a possible online registration. Details to follow.
Glad to hear you'll be back this year Eric.
Sounds good. I'll sign up as soon as that is posted then.
Of course I'll be back. It was a blast
With the new pavement and wider back stretch, Oh the possibilities.
The online registration is now up.
Note: there are somethings at the end that apply to SCCA racers and does not need to be filled out.
Just go to "www.icerace.com" click on the sidebar marked "autocross" and follow the directions.
AMEC AUTOCROSS NEWS
This just in from Dave Burnham:
Only 1 month until our first Autocross at Albany Saratoga Speedway!
Good news! We have opened up registration for the Saturday May 8, 2010 Albany Saratoga Speedway Autocross (with a rain date for Sunday May 9th.)
To pre register please go to the AMEC web site http://www.icerace.com and click on the red autocross link on the left. That will take you to a spec page for the event. At the bottom of the spec page you can click on the registration page.
Our registration is being handled though Motorsportsreg.com and it’s really easy to sign up. You can pay with a credit card or money can be taken out of your bank account. No money will be drawn or charged until one week before the event. You can enter in all your info about your car, pick a car number, emergency contacts everything we would normally do at registration so it should stream line the process. There may be some SCCA type questions that you can skip over unless you want to fill that part out.
If you need to cancel your registration after your credit card or bank account has been charged there is a 7.5% cancellation fee.
It is again only $40 per driver to enter the autocross. This season there is a $5 charge for non drivers to enter the pits. No one under 14 years old will be allowed in the pit area.
There is no charge to enter the main grandstand.
We are again using our very simple classing system. This should make classing the cars easy and insure lots of drivers in each class.

It’s very expensive to rent the Albany Saratoga Speedway for an event like this so we need to sell out. We did last year in November and we also had a waiting list. We hope the same will happen for the 6 autocrosses we have scheduled for 2010 at the speedway. So to make sure you can get in please sign up soon!
This first event will be really neat with a Car and Truck Show put on by Firebird Nation for the benefit of Saratoga Bridges http://www.saratogabridges.org/ . This will be happening at the same time our autocross is happening so you will have lots to see between autocross runs. Then at 6PM there will be a drifting show I am definitely staying to see that. It should be a fun day!
If you would like to participate in any discussions or have questions about the autocross series please go to our message board autocross link at http://www.runboard.com/bamecmessageboard.f1.t28857 .
If you have any other specific questions please feel free to call or e mail

Dave can also add you to our autocross e mail list. We will send out periodic emails reminding everyone about details of the event.
How fast are our "high speed" autocross events? Check out this in car video.
We are working on ways to make it even faster. Opening the slalom, the new CLEAN pavement will help, plus more room on the back straight.
This just announced:
The AMEC speedcross now has a sponsor. It is by the performance division of a large Chevrolet dealer in the capital district.
Just wait untill you see the new course. Color it "Fast".
There are currently 33 entries as of April 14th.
