Autocrossing is a time-based event in which cars race against the clock on a course made of cones. Doesn't sound complicated or exciting, but it is the complete driving experience, allowing you to push the limits of you and your car in a controlled environment

Some great weather brought out a good number of participants for a day of autocrossing. The course was fast and smooth with the fastest time around 45 seconds. I got there just after the start of the runs of the first group, so I didn't miss much.

A lot of friends were there and stopped by to chat while I was taking pictures. It was really nice to see everyone. Jeff even decided to try his hand at taking these photos. He said it's a lot harder than it looks!


Roger (S10on20s99) came by to visit in his new c6 z06



He wasn't planning on running it since he just got the car, but he has a lot of plans for it. Stay tuned. I want to thank Roger for hanging out and buying me lunch. You're the best!

Today had one of the widest variety of cars I've seen at an autocross. Everything from a custom made race car:


to a Jeep:


to a Mercedes C-class:


to a Lotus:


to JGriff's very clean Chevelle. The car was actually at a car show yesterday.


One of the cleanest cars there was this race-prepped c4 Corvette just detailed by TruFacts Racing:

It was a fun day with a good 8 runs for everyone. By the end of the day, everyone was ready to go, so cleanup was swift with everyone pitching in.



See everyone next time!

Not posted yet. I've been extremely behind this year, but will be catching up by the end of the year.
