San Francisco Area Autocross Sites
Monster Park at Candlestick Point
.. Thanks, Keith Hearn!
The new name is from the sponsor, Monster Cables. Cute, huh?
Medium sized, bumpy asphalt lot. Really three lots: the "close lot"
is long and skinny, and quite bumpy; the "outside lot" is huge but is so
bumpy that non-stock cars tend to break when they run there; the "far lot"
is smallest but is the least bumpy of the three. This site is not friendly
to low, highly modified suspensions. But you can build a Monster course here!
From 101 north,
SCCA tends to share Candlestick with the Porsche Club, and it's likely
that there will be more than one autocross running at a given time. Look
for the one that isn't all Porsches. If all the cars parked near the gate
are Porsches, then we're probably in the "far lot", and your goal is somehow
to get past the PCA autocross without being hit by a speeding Porsche or
otherwise annoying anyone, to find us over at the other end of the lot.
This requires a different route every time, and usually isn't marked, so
Take the first (southernmost)
Follow the road around to the right, to the point where you can see
the stadium and parking lots on your left
Take a left through the gate into the stadium area
