CVSCC Autocross was AWESOME!!!

As you read, it was my first one...and it was freakin AWESOME!!! Only downside was it started raining right before I got my runs in, and I forgot an umbrella for my girlfriend haha so she had to try to stand under my friend's umbrella.

I improved 7 seconds over the course of my first 4 runs. Beat an SRT-4 by 2 seconds! Guess I shouldn't be surprised by that--I've heard they aren't handling cars, and the guy said in the rain he could hardly keep from spinning. And others I'm sure, just didn't have a chance to study the results because of the weather. Only ran one heat...I could have stayed to run the second but the girlfriend was wet and cold and didn't want to stay, and a lot of people were leaving anyway since the rain was just not letting up.

All kinds of crazy cars were there, including an OMNI TURBO!!! Haha...thing was trikin' through all the corners. 2 Vipers, one a brand new SRT-10, and also an SRT-10 RAM haha...couldn't believe they were running a truck through the course but hey, I guess it's fun no matter what you drive. A COUPLE of Starions...they are rare and 2 were there. Too bad the DMC wasn't there.

The course was apparently a very close duplicate of the 2006 Nationals course. The whole last run was a descending slalom (is that what they call it? the cones were closer and closer together). I might be able to link or scan a map of the course if anybody cares.

Also soon I will have pics, and maybe even videos, if I can get them transferred somehow.

I welcome myself to the world of autocross . I feel bad though...used a guy's blue tape and never had a chance to give it back. I gave him a buck for it anyway...haha and if I go to another event I'm sure I'll see him and give him a brand new roll.
