Please put the AMEC/Tri Vettes Autocross at the Edinburgh Go Kart track on your calendars. It’s June 10th and 11th. We hope you all will come and have some fun with us. There is a flyer from the Tri Vettes attached.

AMEC has one insurance day left over from the ice races which were cancelled that we can use for an Autocross, Rally Cross, or something this summer. We are trying to line something up if you want to help or have any ideas let us know.

If you like Track days and Time trials and want to go to a really neat track how about joining a bunch of the AMEC members when we go to the NY Safety Track on June 23rd. The NY Safety Track is at 396 Zimmerman Rd, Harpersfield, NY, 12093 (near Cobleskill NY). This event is being put on by NECC Motorsports check out the details here: http://www.corvair.org/chapters/necc/index.html  It’s a great track and a great organization. The track is 2.1 miles long with 18 turns and 450 feet of elevation change. Its only $250 for the full day.

There are a lot of Autocrosses and Track Days starting soon by a lot of different clubs so get out, take your car, drive fast, and support your local clubsJ

The next AMEC meeting is Monday May 8th at Russo’s Adirondack Grill in Broadalbin. The meeting starts at7:30 but come early and eat with us.

The Adirondack Motor Enthusiast Club (A.M.E.C.) Celebrates its 61st. anniversary this year. We have also completed our 50th year of ice racing. A.M.E.C. Ice Racing is the safest and most inexpensive form of road racing available today. We race 6 classes of cars on approximately .75 to 1.3 mile road courses on frozen lakes in northeastern NY from mid January until early March. All regular classes run on purpose built studded ice racing tires which can be constructed according to our rules or bought fromPryme Tire . We also have the “Street Legal” classes, which use studless  winter tires. The Street Legal Unstudded [SL] class is for 2WD cars and the [SL4] class is for 4WD and AWD cars. We also have a studded tire Street Legal Class for both 2WD and 4WD/AWD using only the Nokian Hakkapeliitta 7 or 8 tires. Normal turnout is 60 to 80 entries. The studded classes run from mild to wild–from under 1500cc box stock cars to custom designed tube frame cars with up to 5.8 liter (358ci.) engines that are capable of running well over 100 mph. There are two stock type classes {Modified Menard and Stock Sportsman}, one for heavily modified stock type cars {Supermodified Closed Wheel}, and one class for exotic tube frame cars {Super Modified Open Wheel}. PLEASE SEE THE FULL COPY OF THE RULES. The race format for the race studded class cars, SMO, SMC, MM, is for two heat races for each class and one finale race. The heat races are about 20 minutes long and the finale from 30 to 40 minutes long. Street Legal classes run three 20 minute heat races. Normally races are held each Sunday during the season (weather and ice conditions permitting) but there may be one or more full weekend events. For more information on the Street Legal Classes click on the “Getting Started in Ice Racing”  link from the menu bar.
