My first event of the season and my third ever!

Here is a video


Sorry for the video quality it take with our digital camera and it was really windy. I need to invest in an in car mount to put on the wind shield for next time around.

here are a few action shots



grid


Viper

The guy with viper was running his second event. He was doing pretty well for still learning the feel of the car.

I hear you there I have a break for about a month now before I do anymore. I learned so much this weekend. I did an autocross school on saturday and then sunday I ran an actual event and I've already noticed a difference.

Awesome. Glad your car is fixed and you're out tearing up the track. I just happened to be browsing the thread for upcoming auto-x events so I can take those weekends off of work.

I filled my calender on myautoevents.com. I hope I can make it to quite a few of them. My plan is to go up and do the autox in muskegon Michigan this year again maybe I'll see you there.

I'll agree, I did my first one last week and it was well worth it. I was pleasently surprised that 3 of the veterans told me they don't have any suggestions because I was already running a great line. That made it worth it. Track walks are key.

they are very important, but soon enough you'll see that they aren't always what they appear to be!
