Results from Calculated Landing Time  

A Very Fun second event at Binghamton Airport

Twenty four drivers took the track for our second landing at BGM. The Course was once again laid out by Peter and Rob (so you know is was fast).

Returning Mike D battled it out with his dad Gary for FTD, with Corvette driver Richard not too far behind. Both Rob and Peter faught each other in Peter's Accord for PAX honors. Rookie Brennan L dropped 3 seconds in his last run of the day, can't wait to see his perfomance at the next event. Roderick Y ran the afternoon in Matt L's BMW due to Roderick's suffering a supension injurer (thanks Matt for letting him drive your car). Collin W in the Honda Civic got better on nearly every run.

See results in Season Standings link on the left.

Potentially a Next event on the 26 Sep, Revisit this site for confirmed events.

Prepare For Takeoff

Hello All,

GOOD NEWS!

A BIG shout out, and THANK YOU, to Broome County executive, Jason Garner, and Broome County Commissioner of Aviation, Mark Heefner for procuring a new venue to run our next Solo Autocross event!

Our next scheduled event will take place at The Greater Binghamton Airport, 2534 Airport Rd., Johnson City, NY on Sunday August 8, 2021 at 8-5pm.

The event, on August 8th, will run in the long term parking lot in front of the main terminal. (It’s a nice big lot with solid pavement!)

Can't wait to see you there!

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. Watch this site for more info.

A written proposal was submitted, and will be voted on by the SUNY Broome board this week.

The representative was optimistic about our proposal, so our fingers are crossed.

PAX was a close race between Tavis in his Focus, Roderick in the BMW and Brian in the MX-5 Brian was only 0.045 Seconds behind Roderick, which was 0.28 sec out of First (Travis)

Mike in the monster Miata retains his FTD title again this event, with his closest competitor being his Dad, which was 0.350 seconds behind.

We saw a few drivers return for this event, Daryl and Steve, with Daryl driving his Wife's car instead of his new Charger.

Please keep an eye on this website as we try to find a location for a July event

Assistant RE: John

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

We had a great day at "The Shops". Close races across the board. Mike D sqeeked out FTD on his last run, the top 4 finishers were within 0.219 seconds of each other.

Peter L captured PAX in his Fiesta, and got to drive the most cars that day. Glenn W showed us all how to win, by being first in the Modified/Prep super group.

Look out for new comer Caleb I in his Audi A4, breaking into top 10 of  PAX in his first season, now you just need to teach your Dad how to drive :)

We look forward to seeing you all at the 12 August event at SUNY
