Reno-Fernley for Autocross?
We toured the track at Reno-Fernley yesterday, and while it's in pretty bad shape overall, the upper portion looks like it could be cleaned up enough for a solo course; the question is would there be any enthusiasm for going back there? The pavement is better than the Livestock Events Center, but it does have some cracks and seams, but no swales or potholes. We'd be looking at September or early October.

Pleas chime in as to whether you'd attend an event out there now.

As long as dates don't change. I make everything that doesn't have kids stuff going

Work and family events have stopped me from attending so far this year, but I would definitely be interested and try my best to get out there.

Yes, yes, yes!
Thanks for making time to visit RFR, Don! :)

Who were the “we” who visited?

Folks who have been around for a while must surely remember our Autocross events up on the hill at this track.

Elevation changes, lots of run off and as I recall, a short drive back to the paddock.

Even better, NOT the Events Center!

Amenities up in the boonies were non-existent but the few competitors who suffered heat exhaustion were dealt with expeditiously and allowed to recover under an umbrella, where they could watch feral horses amble by in the distance. :lol:

Another important point of course is that by holding a well-attended Autocross there we will demonstrate to owner Dan our Club’s enthusiasm for even more events (TTs?) on his property. (Note my exceptional grasp of the obvious.;))

And as in the past, any rolled cars will be moved to a ditch down the road from the track entrance for insurance purposes. :lol::lol::lol:

Although, as wiser heads have pointed out, I believe that falls under insurance fraud.:( :lol:

Advise when I should grab my push broom and shovel, and we can put together a crew and make a day of cleaning the course!

What financials did you negotiate with Dan?

And thanks again Don, for moving this forward. I was beginning to despair.
