2024 Starting Over  

SNYR and Glen Region has secured the Chemung raceway for AutoX events. The first event will be Saturday 1 June 2024.

We are still working on getting in the Shangri-La track in Owego. Please see the anticipated schedule to the left.

AutoX events 15th Oct  

SNYR is still negotiating with SUNY BU for an event this year, but no agreement yet. Latest is maybe Nov.

But in lue of an event at BU, there are two other events near by. First is one hosted by Glen region at WGI media lot, and Second is a non-SCCA auto cross held at PineView Run Country Club in Tully NY.

The link for Glen region is above in the links section and for PineView Run it is PineView Autocross

The PineView Run event will be fast and very limited cones. Last year a SNYR member won a gift certificate towards a year membership, plus no working to shag cones. The event is only 3 hours long, so you have time to try out the full track after the autocross (extra fee and training class required).

Assistant RE: John

Phoenix Rising  


Event Cancelled

Due to things out of our regions control, this event has been cancelled. Sorry for the last minute notice. Please check other AutoX events in surrounding regions.

We will continue to work with BU to have an event in October.

Assistant RE: John

Still Good weather for Auto Cross  

Check out other events in the area.

PineView Run Country Club is holding an autocross on the 15th Oct. They will use their 1 mile road course, with a 5 cone slalom on one straight, a double lane change on another, and two gates. Plus the best advantage, you don't have to work. Just show up and drive, chat with others and watch other drivers. A little more expensive, but should be worth it. Food will be available to purchase on site. Link to sign up: PineView Autocross

On the 16th of Oct, the Glen region is hosting an event at Watkins Glen raceway. Check their link for details.

Assistant RE: John

Bad News, 18 Sep Event Cancelled  

SNYR has cancelled the 18th Sep event.

Please attend one of the three events within 2 hrs instead.

Stay tuned for a region meeting coming soon.

Assistant RE: John

Come One, Come All for the Last Event of the Fall  

SNYR will host one more event at BGM this 18th Sep. I anticipate a small number of drivers (due to NEPA, Finger Lakes, and Glenn having events on the same day), so those that show up will get many runs to reach perfection. The course will be flowing, and we might have two seperate courses, one for the morning and one for the afternoon.

We are thinking about having a region meeting as well. We need to start involving others to take over from Michelle and myself. It is time to pass the touch to the next leaders. Watch website for time and place for the meeting.

See you at BGM on the 18th or sooner at a region meeting.

Assistant RE: John

Great 2 Day Event  

We had a fantastic two day event last weekend. The weather was perfect and the racing was safe.

A special thanks to Curtis and Darryl for performing walk up Safety Steward duties. It helped us out a lot.

Day one started out bad for the Monster Miata as the tranny broke on the first run. Micheal and Gary scrambled and bribed Michelle enough to let them drive her car. Greg W proved too fast and took PAX for the first day. Pat B is learning his car with street tires (versus slicks in SSM) and is rocketing up the PAX standings by claiming 2nd in PAX. First year Sabri broke into the top ten of PAX. Brian and Mark fought hard with only 0.06 seconds between them in ES. John M in the loud EVO barely beat John C in the silent Volt (who says the car must be loud to be fast?).

Day two had close racing, with husband and wife of Frank and Caitlin trying to best each other at their first event. Gary and Micheal drove Micheal's FR86 (read BRZ) instead of Michelle's Miata and got 2nd and 3rd in streat class (behind PAX winner of Greg with his Veloster). Philip returned from years away in his Mini and claimed 4th in street. Jeff showed the field what a Honda Civic Type R can do in DSP by winning FTD for the day.

Assistant RE: John

Two Day Event Confirmed  

Get the cars ready again, as our August 2 day event is confirmed. We will hold a solo event on the 13th and 14th. With additional awards available for participants who run both days. The events will be at BGM airport.

Please use motorsportsreg for sign up. Both events should be available for registration by 6 August. Remember to sign up for both events if you plan on running both days.

The additional incentive to run both days is special awards for those who do. Your best times from each day will be summed to determine 2 day standings. Planned 2 day awards include Street, Modified, CAM, Touring trophies for 1st year particpents. Other levels of experience may be broken out as well. Overall PAX, FTD, and class winners will be honored.

Assistant RE: John

Dry Second Event  

Our second event "Solo driving the getaway car" went off with out a hitch. 28 drivers took to the all right hand turn course. The FTD competition between the BM car and the monster Miata went on all day, with Mike D pulling it out with a clean run 0.177 seconds quicker than John Z.

The competition for PAX was tight with Mark M besting Roderick Y by 0.244 seconds. This was Mark's first PAX win, so a special congratulations to him.

In the Street touring class the 2nd place PAX driver of Roderick Y won by 2 plus seconds over the rest.

Modified Prep class was won by Mike D over Jeffery W by 0.257 seconds. Followed by Mike's dad in the monster miata. Elise M improved from the first event by only hitting 1 cone all day.

The street class had a first timer (Sabri S) finish 4th in class and 9th overall in PAX. That is a great accomplishment for his first event. I look forward to seeing him in future events. Mark M won the class and PAX in his MR2.

CAM had 2 corvettes duking it out with Pat B beating Dave R who drove the nice 2011 Stingray.

Paul B retired his mustang for a Miata and had a fun day in STS. We are glad you found a car to continue autocrossing.

Results are posted on the link to the left "Season Standings"

Our next event is planned for 13-14 August. We are hoping for a 2 day event (two seperate events with special awards for those that compete in both days). Keep checking this website for details as this event firms up.

Please check other region schedules in the links above (most weekends have an AutoX event within 3 hrs of Binghamton, i.e., 12 June at Corning Community College with the Glen region).

Assistant RE: John

Great First Event  

Our First event "I'm Feeling '22" was completed before the storms arrived (barely). A thank you to all who helped tear down and load the trailer in record time. I would also like to thank the Glen region for letting us borrow loaner helmets while we wait for our new ones to arrive.

The compitition for PAX was tight with Peter pulling out his best run on his last attempt, beating Roderick in a shared car with Greg. Mark M from CNY completed the podium for PAX.

In the Street touring class Bryan in the CRZ bested Vincent in the 4 cyl BMW by only 0.6 seconds.

Modified Prep class was won by Mike D over his Dad, but only after he finally got his right foot under control in the last run (he was in contention for cone killing king). John M finished third in the EVO. Talking about cone killing leader, this time it was Elise M in the "Fear this EVO", she must have thought the idea was to kill cones as she racked up a total of 17 total for the day. Her fastest time included a one cone penalty, which prevented her from beating her older brother Tim.

Results are posted on the link to the left "Season Standings"

Our next event is on the 5th of June, please use MotorSportReg for sign up.

Please check other region schedules in the links above (most weekends have an AutoX event within 3 hrs of Binghamton, i.e., 22 May CNY in Fulton).

Results from "Final Approach"  

A Big Thank You to all the people who stuck around in the rain on Saturday. Despite being wet head to toe when I got home, I still enjoyed the day.

We had some good competition in the rain. Daryl L was just one cone away from getting PAX (in his Wife's car).

Curtis S was only 0.005 seconds from second in PAX (behind both Mini's). The three top PAX cars were all 2 wheel drive, street tired cars. Really good driving in the wet by all three.

We had two old 1966 rivals in attendance, a Corvette and a GT40. Unfortunatly, the wet conditions did not allow a true fight between the two. Hopefully next year.

We will work on the year end party, and keep you posted via this web site and Facebook.

Latest News, and it is not Good

Hello All,

I’m sorry to be coming to you with some bad news. I received a message from SUNY Broome regarding our event.

“Unfortunately, I was informed that we had a noise complaint from Sunday's event (13 June) from a resident in the neighborhood nearby. This got brought to Executive Council and I am told that we can not host the future Sports Car Club of America events.“

While I hope that door may open again in the future, we will not be able to hold the remainder of our events there. We have also ruled out Binghamton University and the Oakdale Mall for 2021.

If you were scouting new locations… please continue to do so. Thank you for your continued support and interest keeping our region alive and active.

Here’s to hoping for better things to come!

Your RE, Michelle

Results from Lucky 13 Kickoff Event of 2021  

We had a great day for our first event this year. A new large lot (SUNY Broome). The course was smooth, and quick. Every car got 11 timed runs. Cody C pulled out the FTD and PAX for the day in his BRZ. Pat B was not far behind and missing FTD by 0.124 seconds. Mike and Gary D nursed a 3 cylinder Miata all day, but still did very well with an injured car. We had two Dodge Chargers duking it out, with James and Glenn just beating Daryl. We had several first timers who all said they enjoyed the event. See the links (Season Standings) for your times and positions. Next event planned for 11 July at the same lot.

First Hosted Event completed 22 June 2019  

Our first hosted event was held on 9 June. Great weather, and better racing.

We had to move one gate during the second session due to parking lot ripping up. Originally we planned on counting each session seperately, but after reviewing all the times we made a decision to treat second session in with the first

Updated results are in the season standings link on the left.

Gary D with only 2 runs still made top 3 in FTD, He must be talented. Either he or his Son (Mike) kept blowing off intercooler pipe, just stop pushing the gas pedal so hard.

Roderick walked away in the street class, clearing the field by over a second.

Thank You for all the people that helped setup and tear down at the end of day. With out your help these events would not happen.

Next event is 30 June at same location
