All safety concerns are valid. MCO is a safety oriented club. My original post refers not to an autocross event, but an autocross like event. I think it would be more like snowcross where the track is narrow and the elements are simple and few. Remember there are 2 large, paved drifting circles (imaging the amount of rubber on that surface) in the infield at corners 2 and 4. The complicated elements could be set there, well away from the wall and organized so that the probability of losing control and going in the direction of the wall could be minimized. Being on the oval, the main advantage of having an event here would be the ability to build more speed than you would on a normal autcross course.
Today Todd offered to let MCO have full control over the course design and the rules of participation. I'm sure you could design a fast but safe course that would be fun to drive. Inviting Team MASC (or anyone else) would not be a problem as you would be in charge of the rules. Therefore, helmets required, no Jeeps, etc.
As for King of the Hill, I'm sure Todd would be interested in talking to someone about this. There are obvious saftety concerns and MCO could assist with this. MCO's name does not have to be associated with any of these events but Todd would appreciate our assistance. He's trying hard to get more use out of Capital City and to get people to try things at the track instead of on the street.
I don't have the exact dimensions of the oval but it is 3/8 of a mile long with the front straight being wide enough for 4 cars and the rest of the track wide enough for 3 cars. Don't forget the tow large paved areas at corners 2 and 4. Is anyone interested in taking a look at this, having a chat with Todd and a look at the venue (maybe do a few laps?) to really decide if it would be worthwhile? I can set it up.
