July's Event: We are going racing! We will be participating in timed trials.  One of our new members, Rob, suggested this event and it sounds exciting.  He has volunteered to act as a coach and will allow people to ride with him if they want.  The event is Sunday, July 10 at the Amelia Island Airport in Fernandina Beach.  The course is set up on a closed portion of the airstrip.  A single car runs at a time along the circuit made out of cones.  Times are then compared.  If we have enough members attend, we can run as a group, against each other and can run against other cars if we choose.  They will provide helmets and do a safety check at the event.  If you are a member of SCCA, the cost to register is $40 preregistered or $45 the day of the event.  If you are not a member, preregistration is $50 and it is $55 the day of the event.  To register go to:

  • Walking the Course

Attention New Drivers
If you have never been to the Amelia Island site before, please note that we run our event on an unused portion of the airport. Getting to our event site requires crossing an active run-way at the airport, and you must be escorted by airport personnel when entering or leaving the site.As such, it takes a little bit of extra time (typically ~10 minutes) from arriving at the Airport gate, to getting to the actual event location inside. Please plan to arrive at the airport accordingly. It is also suggested that you add about 10 pounds of air to your tires as they will adjust them to the needed specifications at the event during tech. 

Some of us will be spectators so please come out and drive or cheer on the other MB owners as they race.

If you have any questions, please email us at [email protected]and we will do our best to answer them.
