    Default NTAXS Winter Autocross, 1/28/2017, Mineral Wells Airport


    The North Texas Autocross Series (NTAXS) is hosting our annual Winter Autocross event on Saturday, January 28th, 2017 at Mineral Wells Airport in Mineral Wells, TX.

    The entry fee is $40 per person and you must pre-register at starting Friday, January 13th. There is no on-site registration. The event is limited to 65 drivers, so sign up early. Please join us for a great day of racing and fun.

    The event will be cancelled if either of the following occur:

    - Less than 34 people have signed up by 9 AM CST on Thursday, January 26th.
    - At 9 AM CST on Thursday, January 26th, the weather forecast for the event date calls for inclement conditions. In general, we will be looking for less than a 30% chance of rain and a high temperature greater than 45 degrees Fahrenheit.

    Event cancellation will result in refunding each participant's money. Otherwise, standard cancellation rules apply.

    You get eight runs at NTAXS events, so you will make four runs in the AM session and four runs in the PM session.

    8:30 AM – 9:30 AM Check-in, Registration, and mandatory Tech Inspection
    (You must arrive in time to have check in and pass tech inspection prior to 9 AM)
    8:30 AM – 9:45 AM Course open for walking
    9:30 AM Novice Meeting (mandatory if new to NTAXS events)
    9:45 AM Drivers Meeting (mandatory for all)
    10:00 AM First car out
    (One hour lunch break between morning and afternoon heats.)

    Car Classing is based on engine size:
    - Class 1/1R is for engines under 2.3 liters, except Honda S2000 and Lotus
    - Class 2/2R is for engines over 2.2 liters, but under 4.0 liters, plus Honda S2000.
    - Class 3/3R is for engines over 3.9 liters, plus Lotus Elise/Exige.
    - Class S2000 is only for Honda S2000 on street tires.
    - Class X/XR is an open class for any engine displacement and induction.

    Rotary engine multiplies displacement by 2.0. Usage of forced induction multiplies displacement by 1.5. (This is in addition to the rotary multiplier, if applicable.) Tires with a wear rating under 140 must use the R class.
