Steve, that course looks very tight! did you even get out of first gear?

That looked fun Pat, i've yet to run in rain like that. luckily.

here is a run from this past weekends two day event. (sunday)
i was the event chair for both days, and i set both courses. it was my first time setting a course...
i finished 9th overall in pax, that's the best i've ever finished.

Thanks^^
last season i worked on getting as close as i could to cones, just finding out the boundaries of the car. i think i've gotten pretty good at it.
next i'm working on incorporating it with taking the right lines, but i find myself not looking ahead far enough. with time!
another bad habit of mine is, looking in the mirrors to see if i hit a cone!! haha. so this past weekend i folded the rear view up and folded the side mirrors in! everyone kept saying i was going for arrow dynamics!

Yea your car placement looked good and your inputs seemed very smooth. Nice run . Looking in the mirrors is definitely a bad thing though, lol. You want to keep your eyes down course as much as possible and try to look several sections down from where you are.

^^ Agree

Man the handling of your ride GodLovesUgly is great, great job on the Pax Positioning. I keep landing around 40-50 in a group of 100+ people in our local runs.

And nice location for an AutoX staging.
