First Time Autocross

I went Autcrossing for the first time yesterday at the SCCA event in Columbus, IN. It was a blast, and I also took first in my class in my 89 RS with a time 71.539 in the rain plus one cone for a total of 73.539. The event was held at the now unused Wellsboro airport.

Project: 89 RS => AX/RR

Nope. It was a really small event, so when I got done driving, I worked a corner.

Yep. I walked the course about 5 times and had and older driver ride with me the first time to give me pace notes. I had a 19s improvement from my first to second run. I got 5 runs. Were supposed to get 6, but it was raining alot.

I had fun. Finding out I won was just icing on the cake.

Auto-crossing is a lot of fun. I used to do it about 5 or 6 times a year in my old vette til the fiberglass started cracking.
