The 2017 SASC Membership will carry more perks than ever before including even larger event rate discounts to SASC hosted events in Fort Macleod and Calgary and potentially a new members only section of the forum.
And as before continue to be eligible for discounted event rates with other WCMA affiliated clubs like the CSCC (autocross & ice dice).
The 2016 season saw drivers competing at 10 events in Westerner Park in Red Deer (CSCC) and Fort Macleod Airport (SASC), the championship ran from late April until early October and was scored as a best 7 of 10 format. Placing high in the series championship requires not only outstanding driving but the commitment and dedication to attend all events. Thanks to all competitors, members, volunteers and organizers with the SASC and the CSCC for making the series happen. Hope to see everyone again, and a few more, in 2017 when the Solo season commences in spring.

Fort Macleod Appreciation Event & Complimentary BBQ
Please join us on Saturday, October 1st between 11:00am - 3:00pm at the Fort Macleod Airport.
This is the SASC's chance to give back to the town of Fort Macleod. We will be hosting an appreciation event and giving ride-alongs to anyone who comes out to show them what our sport is all about. There will also be a complimentary barbecue for all who attend.
The event will be run as a typical Test N' Tune format i.e. standard fees and signup.
This past weekend the SASC hosted another successful event right here in Calgary at the YYC Budget lot near the Calgary International Airport. Beautiful weather coupled with a strong turnout of nearly 80 drivers and many more spectators made for a great day of autocross.
The SASC will be hosting two more events at this lot in September and October, check the forums for more information.
