OSUSC 2023 Kickoff!

2023 Season Start: Thunderhill and NOLA Preview

This is it! The first event of 2023 kicks off THIS WEEKEND at Thunderhill. Listen in for a full rundown of the schedule for both Thunderhill and the subsequent weekend event at NOLA. These two events are literally on back to back weekends. For those coming to both it’ll be a grind (in a good way), so it’s best to be prepared.

Competitors should have already received a full schedule run down. If not….listen in for all the details you’ll need and then plan to pick up copies when you get onsite Friday for tech.

REMINDER: Your first event of the season requires that your car passes tech…and that you do too! You’ll executed the “fire-drill” procedure to demonstrate how to quickly exit your car in case of emergency. You’ll only do this at your first event of the season, so allow a little extra time.

This is gonna be fun!
