    AUTOCROSS and TRACK DAY INFO: Louisiana

    OK, for those of you who don’t know where to go play with your Subaru (or other car) here is a source of information for you.

    First, log-on to http://www.autoxforum.com/forums/index.php?act=idx and scroll down to the Louisiana forum which has five sub-forums: TLAC, CENLA, DELTA, RRR, SOWELA

    AUTOCROSS:

    CENLA is the Baton Rouge region of the SCCA.
    DELTA is the New Orleans region of the SCCA.
    Red River Region (RRR) is the Shreveport region of the SCCA.
    SOWELA is the Lafayette region of the SCCA.
    TLAC is the Trans-Louisiana Autocross Championship chapter which hosts 3 – 4 autocross events per year in which the four regions compete against each other for club points and the TLAC trophy.

    Pre-registration is encouraged for all CENLA region autocross events and is done at http://www.dlbracing.com/default.aspx . Pre-registration is required for Delta region events held at the Belle Chasse Naval Air Station. You can see many other events all over the U.S. on the DLB calendar.

    You do not have to join the SCCA to participate in any of the autocross events unless you want to run for the end-of-year class and overall championship points or TLAC points. Otherwise, it’s pay & play. SCCA members get a slight discount on entry fees (usually $5.00 off). Typical registration fees run $20 - $25, before discounts. If you join the SCCA at a Delta Region event, that event entry fee is waived; IE: it's free. I'm not sure about the other regions, so check their websites.

    TRACK DAYS:

    No Problem Raceway –

    http://www.bryanracing.org/

    http://www.noproblemraceway.com/roadcourse.htm (Go to the CALENDAR for listings)

    EVO Center (Baton Rouge) –

    http://www.evodrift.com/

    The EVO Center is the Louisiana State Police’s training ground. They rent it out for autocross; drifting and more recently “track” events. It is not a true race track, but rather a training ground that simulates numerous types of driving situations and roadways that would typically be encountered. A four-lane highway section, single and two-lane roads, etc. Some folks seem to really like it. I prefer a true race track with proper run-off areas, etc. To each his own.

    DISCLAIMER: I mention that the EVO Center is not a true race track not to slight anyone (promoter) but rather so you know what you're getting into before you pre-register and pay in advance. The website says no refunds, so, it's better that you know up front what you are getting into. The events are extremely well run at the EVO center. Just know in advance, this is not a road race track, although it is promoted as one. It is a driver training ground. I have no doubt that you can have lots of fun there, but what you can't do is drive 9 - 10/10ths, which was explained in the Driver's meeting at the event I attended. I prefer some place that I can run flat out that has proper run-off areas, curbing, barriers, etc., IE: a road course.

    Drifting events are run alone or concurrently with the EVO Track days. Next event is August 4th. Autocross events run as stand-alone events, not combined with other events.

    ************************************************** *****
    So, no more excuses to not get out and enjoy your Subaru the way it was intended to be used.

    See you at the track.

So I will be joining the red river guys the following weekend. I hope the car is set up better by then, I really look forward to a new parking lot. Is any one a member and hows the surface? loose, rocky, gritty, glassy, etc please help a fellow subaru owner out.
