Autobahn Country Club (Joliet, IL) - 24 Hours of LeMons
This is a special race for us because The Rusty Hub will be there Saturday and Sunday posting live updates to our Facebook page and Twitter feed (if our technology cooperates). So come say "Hi" if you see us walking around.
The Shootout will be a standard, two-session race on Autobahn's South Course with the following session times:
Saturday: 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Sunday: 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Gates open for the weekend at 7 a.m. Friday with tech inspection from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Autobahn will hold a Test Day on Friday. The Test Day costs $150 per car plus $25 for each additional driver. Test Day drivers must attend the drivers' meeting at 8:30 a.m. Friday. For more information or to register, see the Test Day registration form here.
For the second week in a row, we ride along with Skid Marks Racing in their Dodge Neon. These guys know how to hustle around this track cleanly and the video gives quality telemetry. For a turn-by-turn walkthrough at a slow pace, watch this video instead.
