2012 Auto-x video and picture thread

2012 events have started, and so have the videos.


My area runs a slush series all winter long, and the last one a week ago actually was pretty miserable. We had a bunch of snow that started to melt, but then it all froze up the night before the event so badly that it was hard to walk without slipping and falling. We couldnt have workers on course, so we ran exhibition runs for the morning with no time and no one to chase cones. By lunch, the driving line was mostly thawed. After 1 hour of lunchtime shoveling by 10 volunteers, we had a wide driving line and could continue with the timed event.

Anyways, thats the long intro into my video.

Looks and sounds like fun! A great way to stay sharp in the off season.

If you can be fast in the wet/snow/ice/cold you can be really fast in the dry and warm.

Here are some photos of our runs today (Feb 05 2012) in Houston, TX.

I didn't get a chance to really take photos ... hard when it's super cold and running between heats and runs.

Well, here are the few I shot off:
My SVTF and FF Member Ausv7 (Austin)'s 2012 Focus.


Yes, I got bored and Plasti-Dipped my race wheels ... kinda like them like that.


Few car action shots:






I have begun to stack my lonely wins under the trunk. But when Spring hits, I will have some competition. Which in TX is in a month.


Member Ausv7 - Austin ... first time running. And in the new 2012 Focus. 1ST PLACE ROOKIE!!! Nice job man.
