2010 Autocross vid Thread

Starting fresh from the 2009 thread. Post up what ya got!

YouTube Video

This was my best run, the most frustrating part, it was only my second of the day. It was a pretty aggravating day to begin with, lots of wind and it rained on and off all day. Speaking of which, if your club decides to race in the rain, call a stop to anybody who has slicks. we had a fully race prepped 80's camaro with too much hp and not enough grip in the wet (race slicks). he slid right into the building on the right in the second straightaway you see in the vid, you can probably see the hole in the siding he left, next to the white door. Luckily he didn't hit all that fast, and was okay. his car, and the siding on the building, not so much. So be careful out there, and if you see something that looks dumb, different, or dangerous, say something and get it fixed.

Yeah I don't think we'll be doing that setup again. besides, we'll be on base for the next one, nice and wide open

Do you have some kind of hellaceous huge keychain or something? Every time you change direction something's slamming around...

Pretty cool course, even if it does look a little dangerous. Probably ups the adrenaline levels a little :)
