I don't feel new since I've been around reading all the great Miata info for years while I built Dads and I's autocross special 97 while going to college and vet school.

Hello. I am new here. I have always been a fan of the magazine, and I'd love to say that I'm here to help contribute. I'm actually here to track down my former mentor that taught me everything I knew for the longest time. I wanted to see if he would be interested in working on a project I have been putting off. I put the word out in the community and they told me who to PM here. Just waiting and lurking to see when I can send messages.

Funny story. I actually met this fellow randomly off the internet, 15ish years ago, after just a few messages an hour before on a rotary engine forum. At the time everyone who knew me thought it was weird and shady, and I ended up becoming a better driver than I thought I would learning from his rallyX. Hopefully I'll learn some extra stuff while I'm lurking.

Hello everyone! I'm new to this forum but new to road racing as well. I feel like I've learned enough to be confident going in, but also confident to say I don't really know much. I grew up drag racing and this is a new foray. I'm hoping to learn as much as I can to help guide my build process for my 124 Spider. It currently sits unmolested and runs great, but man is it slow. There are plans in the pipeline, but before I get whole-hog invested, I want to do as much research as possible on proper track day/autocross setups, and the associated problems that come with it, so that I can plan my project more effectively.

 

Thanks!

Welcome!  You have come to the right place!  As you've seen, there are a ton of getting started threads that you can get lots of info from.  When you are ready to pull the trigger, start a build thread and you will have a ready made panel of experts at your side along the way. It's kind of spectacular. Look forward to seeing your Fiat evolve.

Guess I AM the NEW old guy..... 76 in a few weeks but returned to Autocrossing after a 25 year plus absence just as Covid hit.... maybe this year I can get to a lot more events.

I Autocrossed back in the sixties and early seventies, moved up to  Formula V road racing and then A sedan. Got involved in paved circle track racing here in the Northeast and played at  open wheel modifieds for years grinning all the time.... then life, family, and business got in the way.... so here I am 25 years later...

A young guy I work with talked me into returning to Autocross, I wasn't all in until I went and to my chagrin I WASN'T the slowest guy out there, and now I have gone and bought a LeMons car....I was surprised at not receiving a single answer to my  ad looking for teammates...   Must be someone here  near the Cape or Southeast Ma  that would like to do some cheap racing.

If you see an old guy auto crossing in a stick shift Camry wave to me- 

Mike B

Hi I've been reading GRM since pretty close to the very beginning ... just getting online to join the community

I've owned 1g CRX, 2g Prelude, Dodge GLH, EJ / EK Civic, etc

Located near Montreal Quebec, I've been instructing for 15+ years with local clubs.

Track car is a B-swapped EJ1 Civic Coupe I've owned since new.

If you have any questions about getting on track, or about the quick way around Le Circuit Mont Tremblant (my local track) in particular, I'd be glad to help.

Hey everyone, not really "new" but first time back to the forum in 7 years. Life's definitely changed a lot since then. Have been racing with SCCA since I was 15 thanks to my father & that's what brought me to the forums. I'll do two cross posts here and over on Project Cars tying my new projects together with my absence from here. 

Nice to be back & hope to be back for good.

Hi-- real name is Paul (he/ him; Type O+, NKA; Class R, corrective lenses, organ donor; atheopagan-curious; no political affiliation and certified 66% non-Fash; equal preference between: gas/diesel/EV, FWD/RWD/AWD, MIG/TIG, AR/AK).  Physical location is northern CO, previously IL.  Screen name is based on the real acronym SAPFU, with my own slightly positive variation as ‘overcoming’ rather than ‘surpassing’.

ANYWAY I first came across GRM back in like ’96?, subscribed for quite a few years, got a project car (87 Chevy Sprint Turbo) with the intent to autocross, didn’t finish the project car, and then kinda got away from motorized and/or pavement-based vehicles.  Now I’m back interested in doing something, just not quite sure what yet.  Probably need to get rid of the old project car (and its backup) just to have garage space and start something new.  GRM and the GRM forums cover just about everything vehicle-related, and the forums are generally pretty tolerant of weird questions/ ideas, so I just need to figure out wtf I’m doing.

Newbie here. Name's Josh in case you couldn't tell. Located in the middle GA area.

Never really read the magazine, but have come across GRM forums many times in the past doing various research or following build logs. Like how y'all are open to pretty much anything, done shun oddball projects. I will continue to enjoy reading about your builds, and think this forum will be useful for collecting ideas for a future build of my own.

Currently have a few ongoing projects, but those probably aren't very applicable to this forum. Some heavy maintenance work and minor modifications on my '00 F-250 is at the top of the list. A slow "resto mod" on a '68 F-100 4x4, mostly stock with a Sniper EFI and a few creature comforts to be added. A '86 Ranger V8 swap project, bigger brakes, lowered, and suspension improvements. That one is currently stalled out but hope to resume work soon. 

​​​​I'll be gathering ideas on my next build, which will actually be based around an engine rather than a car. I'll start a thread on that at a later time though.

Hello, I'm new to this forum. I'm from Turkey/Istanbul.  My name is Emre. 38 Years old, Electrical Engineer, Machine Designer, CNC owner, Car enthusiastic . I have a project car that I want to race with it as soon as possible. I've missed it so much. I'm looking for a good technical information about race cars and builds. And I've checked the forum, such amazing builds. Anyway before I ask some technical help I wanted to say hello and introduce myself. Take Care...

Hi guys. I'm new, I'm sure you've all seen my post but figured I'd post here too. I'm 17 from Chicago and I've been a gear head as long as I can remember. I'm just getting into actually owning and driving cars, and I want to learn to work on them so I'm excited for the journey ahead. If anyone wants an untrained monkey to hand them wrenches in the Chicago area, I'd love to help out and learn.

Hi everyone! I've just joined the editorial staff at Grassroots Motorsports & Classic Motorsports. My motorsports journalism career has mostly revolved around circles - both pavement and dirt. However, the first race I attended in-person was a Trans Am event at Watkins Glen. I'm looking forward to helping tell the stories behind the sports car world.
