Saturday October 28 Ohio Valley Austin Healey Club Driver's Training/Gymkana Rain or Shine
Not a GCMC sponsored event. Goal: "Fun & Family Oriented Gymkhana" Meaning - street legal tires driven to the event only (no tire changing is allowed); No trailered cars unless they are vintage European or Japanese. We may give out awards for improvement over the day i.e., training. This event is designed to be a safe, fun way to enjoy your automobile. No dangerous driving or recklessness will be tolerated. We operate near a resi­dential section and ask that the exhaust system be street legal for noise. Regardless; we reserve the right to determine if it toooo loud. We want to come back next year.
