Solo (Autocross) / New Solo Site for WNY
« on: February 08, 2012, 12:53:44 pm »
Just wanted to let everyone know, thanks to the efforts of Dave Dill,
we have finally, after years of on and off trying, secured Ralph
Wilson Stadium for use for 2 events this summer, and hopefully more to
come.

The first event will be held on June 10th, with a second hopefully
following in August once the NFL pre season schedule is set.

We will be using the freshly paved lot to the north of the stadium,
with a separate lot to the north of that for grid and paddock.  We are
very excited.

You can see the site here.  Use arial view, not birds eye as the
configuration has changed recently.
The nice dark fresh pavement is for running on, the chewy gravely
looking pavement to the north is for grid and paddock, and is
separated by a guard rail.  This site should offer some very nice
course configurations (read turns).

Please save the date and spread the word!
