Bele Chere Auto X

I finally made it back to Asheville, NC to one of my favorite events, Bele Chere. It is a local street festival filled with food, music, arts and of course Auto Cross!

The event is sponsored and put on each year by Highlands Sports Car Club. This year was a little different though. The city has outsourced the planning for Bele Chere and hence funding was cut for the event. The City of Asheville did not provide funding nor a police presence. The club however, with the dedication of the members, managed to scrounge up the funding to allow the race to happen.

The event went off without a hitch and a total of 76 racers were able to live out their dreams of legally driving like a maniac on public streets(South Charlotte Street to be exact). Here is a LINK to the results page.

The complete set can be found here: 2010 Bele Chere Auto X

Here are a few of my favorites:

Thanks for looking. If you are interested in checking these types of events out for yourself or even competing to show your mad skills check out SCCA.ORG for local club information.
