Philly Region SCCA Event#4

Well if my tires weren't completely trashed before this morning, they are now. I wanted to break in to the 59:'s, but I had to settle for a 60.240 on my 4th run. One more run I might have hit 59.9

FTD was at least a mid 49:secs (damn AS solstice). STS is probably running now, so I ran NonComp in the AM session so I can start grilling dinner now

Results will be up in a few days so I can compare myself then,

Was that you, Dudes?? I was the old fart you were talking to.

I did lousy, as usual. But I am starting to make some progress. I have to go check the scores- I only had one clean run, 63.??? I think. I had an insrtuctor drive one run, he did 58.??? . So I can't blame the car anymore. But what a fun day...

LOL Old Fart.... thats good stuff. I love talking with a fellow owner, hell anyone for that matter. Did you get to talk to the owner of the red ZX5 SVT? That looked pretty good, although the rear seats aren't usable-

The course was really technical with all the transitions, it was not hard to lose a second here or there. I was really hoping to get in to a 59something- but I couldn't. Hopefully maybe I'll learn something new this coming Sunday at South Jersey!

You shouldn't pick on the germans like that- they lost the war you know...

And dude- like your video's. I spun out just ahead of where you did, except I had cones piled up outside the car. I worked the radio at station 6 for last heat, so I heard everything that was going on- I was surprised how few clean runs there were. Half went off course, the other half flattened cones, and the third half did both.

And the red svt- a mere youngster- nice guy though, we watched the 1rst and 2nd heats together. I think he did pretty good, but I don't know his numbers.

Will-
The next Philly event is July 13th, hope to see you out there. I'm sure I'll be posting a thread when the date draws closer. If you can, SJR is holding a event on June 8th in Blackwood, NJ. I'm hoping to be there too-

Nice to hear I wasn't the only FWD spinning around the course. This is the end of the run where I did get a little backwards....

You can see me at the end of your run standing in the grass, lol. Pete is the owner of the Red SVT. Yesterday was his first autoX. That Solstice was fast as balls by the way. Next time I will run and Tim should have tires and suspension by then.

Blurv, I was the tall guy with the yellow Nike Golf hat on, I think you were standing near me at the finish because I know Pete was there.
