  • Giant Slalom - Sponsored By: Oregon Mini Society — 11:50 AM - 1:50 PM
    The ABFM Giant Slalom course will be the same as 2013. We have abandoned the technical course which was used to a Mini advantage for so many years, and have plotted the course using the SCCA pit return road without a spin cone then proceeding into the drag race start area. The spin cone in the drag race start area will be retained since there is plenty of space for the maneuver there. We expect the course to equalize times and offer a more open course for the larger cars. Top time of day will likely not be a Mini Moke this time.

    Entry space is limited so register early. Registration opens at 10:00 am and closes at 11:15 both days. You must register Saturday for Saturday runs, and Sunday for Sunday runs. There will be NO Sunday registration on Saturday.

    Workers are welcome and we highly recommend joining us for a better view of the event. Why watch from the bleachers when you can be close enough to smell the drivers?...I mean cars! AND, you'll receive a nifty worker T-shirt for your time!
  • Autocross — 2:00 PM - 5:00 PM
    BACK AGAIN on the infield for registered vehicles. 3 runs for $10 charitable donation. No prizes, just F-U-N! Visit the regalia tent for all particulars.
