Real street cars run in the rain, but for the safety of our course workers and competitors, we don't run when there is lightning in the area.

A great shot from NCM. Real street cars run in the rain, but for the safety of our course workers and competitors, we don’t run when there is lightning in the area!

Series Intro for Newbies:

Welcome to summer! It’s officially here now. Since we had a couple of weeks between events we thought now would be a good time to go through a lot of the questions that come from people outside of this series, specifically because OSUSC is a series that’s made for amateurs, but done at a professional level, all with the goal of putting great cars on the track! OPTIMA Jim’s latest article went through this in details, so we dug into all of the points of discussion:

  • Safety is our Top Priority
  • We Have Rules
  • We Have a Podcast
  • It Really is a Series for Streetcars
  • We’re Searching for Ultimate Street Cars, not Ultimate Street Car Drivers
  • This Series Isn’t For Everyone

Pikes Peak Preview!

1. When is it? July 8-9
2. Tech and move in is on July 7, Noon to 6 PM.
3. This year the Speed Stop will be run outside (behind) the grand stands on the autocross skidpad.

Thanks for listening!
