Autoslalom School / Test & Tune: April 27

The competition season is about to start so we thought we’d hold a slalom school at the Magic Mountain parking lot to help the new people looking to get into the sport.  Also we’ll be holding a test & tune session for people looking to get their cars ready for the season.  The school will be in the morning with a test & tune in the afternoon.

4:00pm – Clean Up
4:30pm – End

Fees:
$20 – School + Test & Tune
$15 – Test & Tune

You must be a member of an ASN Canada affiliated club.  A new membership is $20 and includes the cost of the event.  A membership renewal is $25.  You can apply for membership at registration.

You will need a suitable vehicle to participate.  If it can pass an MVI, then it should be suitable.  You will also need a Snell K/M/SA 2000 or greater certified helmet.  If you don’t have helmet, the club has loaner helmets you can borrow.  Any loose items inside the car should be removed.

If you interested in participating in the school, contact Ming (competition@mmsc.ca).  We will also need some volunteers to help with the event.  If you can help, please let Ming know as well.  See you there!
