Here is a videohttp://i459.photobucket.com/albums/q...h_102_2836.jpg


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.

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!

I did another autox on sunday and i'm going to another this sunday.

Here is a link to pictures from the last one
