The Solo Schedule page has been updated to reflect this season’s 6 scheduled events – all taking place at the OGS McCarty Ave parking lot. The May 2nd Test-n-Tune event on Saturday has been cancelled – a victim of the circus coming to town. Shake off the cobwebs and snow flakes of this past winter and renew your friendships with fellow competitors. Sunday May 3rd, is our first points event of the year.

Next Membership Meeting Is Wednesday, May 6th, 2015
Celebrate the coming of spring by coming out to a membership meeting. Meetings are held the first Wednesday night of each month at The Orchard Tavern in Albany, NY. Meetings are located in the back room of the restaurant, and start at 7:30pm, but folks usually gather beginning around 6:30pm to catch up while getting a bite to eat before the meeting starts. Come on out and find out what your club is up to!
MoHud: The Documentary
Mohawk-Hudson Region (#65) of the Sports Car Club of America is based in upstate New York’s Capital District and Adirondacks, bordering New York Region (downstate), Southern New York Region (along the PA border), Central New York Region (Syracuse – Utica – Rome), Canada, and New England Region (everything east of the NY border).
MoHud members participate in active Club Racing, Solo, and PDX programs. MoHud’s annual club race, the John Stim Memorial, takes place at beautiful Lime Rock Park each summer. Want to learn how to go racing? Contact our race or membership chairs to receive more information.
Don’t own a race car? Try our Solo (AutoCross) or PDX (track day) programs, which allow you to drive your regular street car on a closed course at speed. Solo events are held in large open parking lots, with one car at a time around a course delineated by traffic cones. You’re timed and grouped with like cars, and there’s always a novice walk-through in the morning and other drivers willing to lend a hand.
Track days are hosted at famous road courses like Lime Rock Park, where you’ll get seat time driving full-out on the track in your own vehicle. We pair you with an instructor when you’re starting out and the day includes classroom instruction.
For fun on open public roads, try a RoadRally (also called TSD or Time-Speed-Distance). TSD rallies take place at legal speeds and follow a carefully plotted course mapped out and distributed the morning of the event — so bring a navigator!
Don’t like to race? Don’t worry because in addition to the driving-related, MoHud also hosts a variety of extracurricular group outings each year courtesy of activities director Pete Smith. Annual events include a golf outing, August’s family go-kart night — in addition to our award banquets and regular monthly meetings. There’s always a strong social aspect even at the race track.
