The Corvette Club of Iowa is have an auto cross this Sat. and Sun at the Ankeny Airport. All are welcome to come. The Ankeny Aviatoin Museum is cooking food. The CCI puts on some good events. The cost is $13 per event with 2 runs an event. There will be 5 events each day it sounds like. Tech opens at 7 and the first car off around 930.

Driver's meeting is 8:45 on Saturday and 8:30 on Sunday. The flyer doesn't talk about when registration closes but it is a Midwest area event with preregistration so I wouldn't expect that you can't just walk in at any time.

This is their latest newsletter. Flyer starts on page 23.

I went to just watch after church and they were hitting 70-75 mph. It looked like a nice setup. But it was only about a 35 second course. It was open to all cars.

It was fun. The Corvette club was quite welcoming as was the Aviation Museum. I ran 6 runs on Saturday and had a great time and learned a lot about my new car, albeit at the expense of hitting more cones in one day than I usually take out in a season or two, even though the course was somewhat simpler than the typical DMVR set up. Of course I have driven the MG for about 27 seasons so I pretty well know where it's corners are, not so after only a week in the new green machine...
