Autocross News

The NCR Solo Program will be having its own small awards banquet on November 24th in Wilmington. We do this separate because it allows us to give out the large number of autocross season awards, which there just simply isn’t time for at the Annual Awards Banquet in January. We will still have our Driver(s) and Worker of the Year awards to present at the Annual Awards Banquet and we encourage everyone to attend both events.

The Solo Banquet will be on November 24th from 11am – 3pm at the Front Street Brewery Beam Room in Wilmington. The price for the banquet is $15 per person, $7 per child. You can register on MotorsportReg and there is a Facebook group. There will be brunch food and a cash bar. Parking is available either on the street around the restaurant or in one of the Downtown Wilmington parking decks. The event Facebook group and the registration site both have the full menu listed. Registration will be open until November 17th. Please register by then, so we can give our numbers to the restaurant for food.
