Registration is $35 for SCCA members. Temporary weekend SCCA memberships will be available for non-members for $5.

Autocrossing is a time-based event in which cars race against the clock on a course made of cones. Doesn't sound complicated or exciting, but it is the complete driving experience, allowing you to push the limits of you and your car in a controlled environment.

The Tennessee Valley Region of the Sport Car Club of America (TVR-SCCA) is a sister club to the Twickenham Auto Club (TAC) and the events follow a similar format.

Online registration is available here

This is the Annual 'North vs South' autocross where Huntsville goes to Birmingham on Saturday and then Birmingham comes to Huntsville on Sunday. From all the chatter in the discussion threads, this is going to be one autocross you won't want to miss!

While the weather was swelteringly hot, clouds rolled in on and off blocking the sun for good amounts of time. At points it looked like rain, but never did rain. But when those clouds were just right, they helped make some perfect lighting conditions for pictures.

Lots of Birmingham drivers came up for the North vs South challenge. There were over 75 cars registered. Even Yellowhammer came out:


The course was long as it went all the way around the stadium, but also fast with the fastest times breaking 60 seconds.

The competition was fierce, but in the end the North won again. Kinda like the Civil War reenactments.

A long day, but fun to see everyone enjoying the course. See everyone next time! -- Samir

ALSCCA (B'ham) vs TVR (Hsv) rivalry event this weekend. A bunch of TVR guys are driving down B'ham on Saturday and then a bunch of ALSCCA members are coming up to race here on Sunday. Best combined team two day score (final time, pax time, and participation points) wins and gets bragging rights.

TVR has won the past two years.

I didn't realize this was the North vs South weekend. I have to cut out halfway on Sunday, so I can't drive anyways. I'll be there with a camera though...even though there's already plenty to go through right now.

Cool, Maybe us D Stock guys can put on a show. I am having a tire issue. So I will be running an old almost bald older set of street tires. It should be exciting to slide everywhere and still attempted to have decent times.

If you have to be at work by 2pm, you'll probably have to cut out by lunch. Talk to the eventmaster beforehand and see if you can run all your runs before lunch so you can still have the same track time everyone else gets. They should be able to accomodate.

I'm not really that worried about it. If I have to cut out early no biggy. I just want to have some fun. Only problem I'm going to have is, I"ll have to borrow my co-driver's car to get to work, not sure if he will be in the mustang or honda lol.

Just let the event master know you have to leave. You will probably have time to get all your runs in. They get upset when people don't work. If you tell them it is cool. We can plan around loosing one guy in the afternoon.

Well it's a no go for me tomorrow . I wasn't able to get the money up to register so neither me or my co driver will be there(was going to front his fee). Shop needed supplies so got to spend money to make money. Sorry guys, I was really looking forward to going. Maybe next time.

There's another one next month, so you're good. Do what you have to get done, the racing has been around here for over 50yrs and counting.

It's all good, as the weather won't be perfect. I wanted to drive the Porsche, but after my schedule change and the chance for rain, I've canned that idea. Just another 10hr working Sunday, lol.
