    Default Houston area?

    Any IT folks in Houston? Just moved to Houston and I need some shop space for my ITB Volvo project.

    There is a NASA event Feb 9th and 10th at MSR Houston. That would be a great place to ask.

    Can I just show up or do I need a NASA membership?

    Houston region just had a race last weekend at MSR. Their web site is http://www.houscca.com/

    The next SCCA race in the area is next weekend at Texas World Speedway in College Station. It is hosted by Texas region but there will be a lot of the Houston contingent there.

    The track sat view: http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&hl=e...wloc=addr&om=1

    I'll be working tech this weekend instead of racing. Come on up to the track and snoop around.

    The NASA group would be happy for you to show up and see how they do things. Be careful though, they will try to talk you into working a corner.


    Here is the info for next weekend: http://www.sowdivscca.org/entryforms...WS2.9Final.pdf

    Welcome to the area David! Good to see another IT car in TX. The SCCA R/R last weekend at MSRH was pretty good, but we don't have another R/R until September - everything in between is one day weekends. If you can make the R/RR this weekend at TWS, go for it - it's the only R/RR this year. We are in a very National oriented and open wheel car division. A lot of the regional car guys are frustrated, it's been expressed in meetings and on forums.

    As Bob pointed out, there is a NASA race Feb 9-10 at MSRH. I will be there, so will Bob and others. Come stop by or come out and race! PM me if you need any help or have questions. You won't have to work a corner unless you want to, no worries. I've never worked a corner and have never been asked either. NASA pays it's workers so finding them is not an issue.

    As far as shop space, sorry I'm in Dallas and need some as well!
