Recommended Posts

Gateway Autocross Association by NASA Central Region held their first autocross event in close to 30 years on April 5th, 2015. 47 drivers attended the event on a beautiful Easter Sunday at the St. Charles Family Arena’s expansive asphalt surface.

The near 60 second course had an entertaining mix of high and low speed elements, which provided a challenge for the drivers. Morning session drivers received 5 chances at the course, and afternoon got 7.

 

Sean Greer won the highly competitive INDEX class by .686 over Evolution Performance Driving School Instructor Andy Hohl. Jacob Meuth won the CAM-C class over Alex Watson. Both drivers ran Mustangs with Meuth in an 2004 Mach 1 and Watson in a late model machine. Mike Kuba in his Ford Focus came from behind to win NASA-X E (NXE) over Eric Fogle in a MR2. Tim Brueske took FTD in his shifter kart.

 

The next event on the Gateway schedule is May 10th at Gateway Motorsports Park with other events June 19, July 21 and November 8. Complete schedule is available at www.gatewayautox.com

 

Gateway Autocross, which is sanctioned by the National Auto Sport Association Central Region runs under NASA-X autocross standards, was originally founded in the 1970’s by a dedicated group of autocrossers and resurrected in 2015 by region director Dave Whitworth and with executive help from Beth Whitworth, Carla Russo, Jose Hernandez and Chris Hammond.

 

Gateway Autocross offers fun, competitive autocross events with an innovative two session format that allows drivers to complete their days by running and working either in the morning or afternoon for only $35. For an additional $15, a driver may run both sessions.
