I totally forgot about this. That's why I didn't show up. DOH!

Can't wait for the pictures.

As for the bad days...oye.

It really was a mental challenge this time. I would fly through one part only to screw up an apex in another section of the course.

Rightly or wrongly, I tend to break courses up into segments using the straights to get my bearings and adjust. Just couldn't get it to come together this time.

BUT, that's why we do this. Continuously improve and take the lessons learned to the next one.

We have another AX at the same location in 2 weeks.

Every event is another chance at validation and redemption.

My pleasure and it was great to meet you!

Hopefully, we didn't bore you too much with wisdom and old war stories...

Results are in !!!

DAMN YOU GTI !!!

Seriously, I got spanked. John is a GREAT driver and deserves all the kudos coming to him.

He started with us 3 years ago having never been to an AX. You hear people talk about natural ability. I don't have it. All of my success (or lack thereof) is based on experience and TRY!

This is the first year he is on R-compound tires and he is driving the wheels off. I will have my hands full...

Official results here:

Come out and play!

Also, don't be too quick to judge a Benz on the street as a slow and ponderous luxury boat.

Jim Smith is driving a 92 190E (2.3 motor) with over 200,000 miles on the odometer.

He got me by nearly a second.

Respect the Tr-Star.
