Laguna Seca Preview

Event #3 of the 2023 OSUSC season is upon us with a return to the legendary venue of Laguna Seca!  Listen in for a full rundown of the schedule for the weekend of May 5-7. 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 if needed.

FUN NOTES: The streaming numbers from the first two events of the season are a little nuts. The first two events had 22,000 views on the livestream, but over 1.8 Million minutes of combined viewing. That’s a LOT of eyeballs!

See you there.
